Anna Wight...out this week


Today I will be sharing two cards.




This bright and cheerful holiday card was made using three ornaments from Lindsay Ostrom. First I stamped and colored the images with Copics. Next I pierced small holes at the top of the ornament and then at the bottom of the letters. To give the idea that the ornaments are hanging, I ran silver metallic thread through the holes. This simple card is finished off with Clear Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents and a few tiny bows that were tied using a baby fork!

The adorable gingham penguin was stamped with IO Black Hybrid Ink and then heat embossed in clear. The tree shaped shaker card was made using the Christmas Tree Cutout die. Diamond Dust was used inside the shaker.

The Cat bookmarks are in disguise for the Halloween card!




The cascading card base was made with double-sided paper. The card will fold flat and fit into an A2 size envelope, without the tree! It's decorated with IO die cuts and Rainbow tape.


There are 3 different bookmarks, a bear, dog and cat.
Today my card is featuring the cat. 
They are adorable all decked out in their costumes. The disguises are created using the Retro Masculine Die Set, a witches hat from the Boo die and hand cut clothes.



Not ready for Halloween yet?
Here's a smarty Cat Bookmark!

Fall is coming soon I hope! That means getting together for the holidays and pumpkin pie time! I'm sharing with you today an easy Thanksgiving Invitation.
The Patchwork Turkey is great for making multiples. He is fun to mix different pattern papers for die cutting. I used 5 different papers for him. I now have 5 different turkey combinations! 
 I love the mixing of the fonts that Dina Kowal did on the You're invited stamp. What a great stamp to have in your stash...perfect for all occasions! 
The embossed BG adds an extra touch of fall to the invitation.

The Halloween Web Die is fantastic. It's a great die cut used simply by itself or...fun as the BG to a shaker. Red jewels adorn the backs of the black spider sequins. With a flick of the wrist...these spiders jump around inside the shaker!

After die cutting the Halloween Web, it left this wonderful negative design in the paper. Never letting anything go to waste...I embossed it. There is Gunmetal Mirircard paper behind the die cut that gives it a neat effect. The New Eat Drink Pumpkin was die cut a few times and is popped up onto the front. A few wiggly eyeballs added makes this card complete!
