Smooshing Technique a Bold Splash of Color for Cards

Smooshing Technique for Cards

Hello Friends,

If you like the look of watercolor on your handmade cards, you will love the "Smooshing" Technique. The "Smooshing" Technique is super easy to do and the results look spectacular. For this card, I used 3 colors but I had more control of my ink with the Smooshing Technique. I was able to add 3 colors without the inks running together and getting muddy.

Frosty Autumn Gift Bag

Seasonal Layers Gift Bag

Hello Friends,

It's Renew Old Acquaintances Thursday here in my craft room.  I still remember when the Seasonal Layers Dies and the Colorful Seasons stamp set were new.  It was love at first sight.  Sadly, my Seasonal Layers dies have been neglected lately, so it's time to brush them off and give them a new look with today's Frosty Autumn Gift Bag.  

Autumn Wedding Idea

I can picture these Frosty Autumn Gift Bags at an Autumn Wedding.  They would-be so beautiful lying on every table.

DIY Frosty Autumn Gift Bag Tips & Tricks

To accomplish my frosty autumn theme, I used on frosty, sparkly, shiny colors with lots of white.  

Foil papers lend themselves nicely to this theme.  I used Champagne and Copper foils along with a Copper Dotted Treat Bag.  I finished up by heat embossing my congratulations tag with gold embossing powder.

The finely detailed maple leaf die is hands down my favorite die in the Seasonal Layers Dies, so I included lots.

To make my purple posies, I chose a couple of flower dies from the set and made layered flowers with Purple Posy Card Stock.  Then, I dotted the centers with Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

The tag was cut with a new set of dies from the upcoming Holiday Catalog called Ornate Frames Dies.  Watch for them on September 4th when the Holiday Catalog launches.  Would you believe that this particular die set was designed with Halloween in mind?
