So, for today I made two cards. Both of them were created using the images of the MMH of October, take a look:

This was quite a simple card, featuring many of the tiny images that can be used in so many ways. This time I used them to create a background using different color of inks and randomly stamped the images to create a pattern. After that, I adhered the panel over a folded card. I want to point out that many of the tiny images have their matching frame cuts which opens up more possibilities for your creativity!

The sentiment was stamped over a strip of cardstock and I left enough space on both sides so I could create the banner ends. To create the folded banner, I trimmed off the ends of the rectangle. Then, I used a white strip of cardstock as a base for banner. I trimmed around the banner with a craft knife and then I adhered it over the card. I finished off this card with a couple of cute birds that hold the banner and water droplets.

The second card features the big ornament shape and stamp as the focal point, take a look:

I like to use the Misti Regular Hero Black to stamp large solid images, because you can always stamp over again to achieve a perfect stamped image. Anyway, I also used the matching frame cut the stamped ornament and to give it dimension, I die cut a piece of foam. I created a subtle background with liquid color and a sponge dauber over white cardstock. I flicked some Sparkle silk over and I die cut it with the ornament frame shape too… phew! So, I layered the background, foam and red ornament together, and adhered the whole piece over a white cardstock panel.

I stamped and die cut the flying santa and I adhered it over the ornament. I complemented this card with a sentiment, some white sequins and a silver string bow.
