by Michelle Bala

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing this adorable snowman gift tag/ ornament. I used the House Frame and Snowman House Frame dies.

After the images were die cut, I used Copic Markers to color them. The front side of the frame has a snow mound. The back frame is plain and I adhered the fence to the inside of the back frame. I assembled the trees and snowman than adhered them to the front house frame.

Than I adhered both frames together. I used some red twine to make a handle. I also added a black button. I added some Dewdrop Glitter glue to create snow. Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you enjoy today's post.

Joy and Cheer
by Michelle Bala

Hello there! Michelle here, with a simple card today. No coloring, no stamping, just die cutting and gluing.  I die cut the Joy and Cheer word die using three different glitter colored papers. I used the champagne glitter die cut as the base. Than I trimmed the word Joy, and Cheer from the other die cut colored glitter words. I adhered them directly to the champagne glitter base.

I adhered the sentiment onto its shadow base. Next, I die cut the pattern paper and adhered that to the card base with foam adhesive.

Last, I added a few die cut pine boughs and amber colored crystals.

Thanks for taking a peek! Hope you have a great week!

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing the new Nativity House Frame Die, Bennet Alphabet Die and Slim Pinpoint Burst Plate Die.  Whether you like to color your die cuts or keep them one basic shade, the Nativity House Frame is perfect for either.

For both cards I began with the Slim Pinpoint Burst Plate Die. I inked it up with tumbled glass and prize ribbon distress oxide inks. I die cut the Alphabet and colored the base with Copic Markers. I die cut the top layer using a piece of cardstock from the Ocean Blue 6x6 Pack. I die cut the star from the Majestic Hues Glitter Pad. I die cut the Nativity Frame using the Woodgrain Paper Pack in cream and kraft. I used Copic Markers to color the palm trees and Holy Family.
