Time Out Challenge #176: Angel Jacket Card


I think there's something to be said for a religious card. While I personally am not religious, I always admire those with faith and a close relationship with God. This card comes courtesy of TIME OUT Challenges which asked to make cards inspired by the following quote:


For a couple weeks I've waited for the perfect challenge to finally pull out my Anna Griffin Angel Jacket Card Dies. In the past, I loved how jacket card dies look, but I often find them too time consuming to really pull out more than a handful of times. That said, I'm happy to report that these Angel Jacket Cards took a little less than the hour mark, which means they will definitely be pulled out again.

I created two variations of the same card using the dies:


I used Recollections card stock I had to create the card. I also used Cricut brand glitter card stock for the wings and dress and put washi tape on the side to give it an extra layer. Additionally, I added a white ribbon and a little saying that declared, "Oh Come All Ye Faithful."

For my variation, I largely kept the same idea:

Here, I used the same glitter card stock (and you can see it a bit more), a gold ribbon, a different washi tape and an Anna Griffin Holiday Layer Sentiment Stamp.

On the inside of the cards, I cut out different card stock sayings from a holy themed Recollections card set:



Overall, I'm ecstatic how this set came out. This is definitely a card die set I will use again; it's also a good reminder how nice these religious cards look, so I will definitely reproduce these in some form in the future.

Anna Griffin Empress Machine Review

For the past few months, I've really given my Anna Griffin Empress Machine a workout. For those not in the know, The Empress is a high powered non-crank emboss and die cutting machine. It's akin to devices such as the Cuttlebug, The Big Shot, or the Gemini. I Have a Cricut / Cameo / Silhouette - Why This? The short answer is, you can create texture in your cards. While the aforementioned devices are no doubt powerful and create designs that the Empress can only dream about, there's no doubt that emboss machines give textures and creates intricacy that cutting machines cannot compete with. My most complimented cards are not the ones with the most layers or even the most elegant, rather it's the cards with texture. Cricut and other Cutting Machines just lack that  ability to create the"feel" of a higher quality card. Pros of the Empress I absolutely adore my Empress. For those with arthritis or other mobility issues, a device like the Empress is a

CAS Entry 2: Rainbow Butterfly Card

Yesterday I showcased my Black and Gold Anniversary card . I'm really obsessed with this layout. It's clean and easy, and it allows for so much variety. As mentioned yesterday, this CAS entry is courtesy of Colours & Sketches .  Again, here was the sketch layout: One of my favorite card designs comes from this blog: Cards, Kids and Coffee .  This is a card that I've made a couple of times, but it is quite time consuming: photo credit Keeping this in mind, I thought it would be great if the butterfly circled around the open circle. This meant double the punching and double the rhinestones. So here's my end result: In the center, I just used an embossed nature background. Where the card really stands out is from an angle: And because I can never make one of anything, I made two. If you're wondering what butterfly hole punch I used, I found this one from EK Tools at Michael's on Clearance forever ago. But,

Card Contest July 2020: Christmas in July

For this month, I wanted to run my first card competition and contest. The winner will receive a $10 Michael's Gift Card. The theme for this month is Christmas in July. You can be as interpretive and open-ended as you want for this contest. Any size card. Any materials you have. You might choose to stamp, create 3D shapes, or mix any mediums. I spent the morning working on four cards that will hopefully inspire you. These two llamas came from Stampednous . I colored them in using Copic Markers. The brown llama, I followed as closely as possible to the design given, but I wanted to make sure I put my own spin on the llama - hence the blue one. For my second set of cards, I used Lawn Fawn dies. The main die cut is the portrait stitched hillside backdrop . I also had these trees and house hillside cuts. This was my first time using these die cuts, but the effect is striking, and I can't wait to do again with different backgrounds. Those cards are just some ideas
