Use Your Background Dies as Stencils+Video+Free Image

This all started with a request for a birthday card.  They like my vintage image cards so I picked an adorable Agnes Richardson image.  Then I wanted to use a stencil and didn't really see one in my stash that was exactly what I wanted.

So, I got carried away making my own stencils from background dies and really like the results!   

Scroll on down for a video with tips and that Agnes Richardson couple is ready for you to download if you would like.

I love this sweet image of the girl with her cat.   I think she's a companion for another girl - you can see the card I made with her HERE.  She has polka dot hair and well, so does this one!  Polka dots on her sweater, the leaves and the cat, too!

So fun to color! 

Speaking of color - isn't this card bright and cheery?  This background die made a lovely bold stencil.  

Really like how that big bold sentiment really pops!  And it is really fun:  Vintage Text Message!  

This is the one I turned into a birthday card for Kirby to give to his wife, Gail.  I hear it was a hit!  If you like vintage images and want to use this one in one of your creations, you can download it below.

So glad you stopped by!  Have a lovely day!

Caroling Critters Sliding Easel + Giveaway Winner!

I was going to say Welcome to the last post for Visions of Sugarplums in July, but it's August already!  Christmas in August just doesn't have the same ring.  Nevertheless, this is the last post for Visions of Sugarplums in July!

I decided to join Spellbinders Die Hard club and the first set of dies I got was their Festive Wreath Slider.  I've made sliding easel cards in the past and I must say that having the dies certainly makes it easier!

I've got a video below showing how to make this card and if you want to see how to make a sliding easel card without dies, check out THIS POST AND VIDEO.  

Aren't those carolers adorable?  The Christmas tree is fun - each layer is a separate die.  You can't really see it in the photo, but there is a lovely layer of glitter that really makes this card shine!

Well, at least I've got several Christmas cards done by having Visions of Sugarplums in July (and August)!   How far along are you?
