Peace and Sparkle

These two cards were made using the same design, but have different styles, I thought it would be fun to show how using the same dies, but different papers and color schemes you can alter the theme, but still manage to make several cards in a short amount of time.
For the Peace card I used various papers from Tim Holtz Ideaology paper stashes that had a woodland vibe. I cut the shaker window and frame using the Stitched Circles die set from Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations. The snowflake used in this window is Flurry #3. It felt like it needed a more woodsy card to support is design.
Above the Flurry #3 flake, I added a few pieces from the Funky Festive die set over the center of the circle.
In the center of the Flurry #3 I added a Gumdrop that had been colored brown with a little alcohol ink. The shaker media is Distress Rock Candy Glitter.
The sentiment was cut using the Thin Holiday Words #2 dies set.

The second card I wanted to go with more of a cool, icy, wintry vibe. I chose more papers from various Ideaology Paper Stashes, then cut the window and window from again using the Stitched Circles.
Because the Flurry #1 is pointed it gave me more the feeling of ice, so I added a clear rhinestone to the center and Distress Glitter behind.
The blue, cream and white color scheme was chosen to enhance to icy feel of the card.
This little white spray of greenery with the blue berries is from the Funky Festive die set as well.
The sentiment was cut from the Alphanumeric Cut Out Script. Then to make both the Funky Foliage sprig and the sentiment 'icy' I sprayed them with Distress Resist Spray and added Distress Rock Candy Glitter. I love how it clumped up and made chunky bits that clung to the edges of the piece. It's fantastic!

And that's it! Just using the same dies but with different papers and colors you can achieve different looks in a relatively short amount of time.

Thanks for stopping by!

You are a true magician with just dies! Both of the cards have such a different look with the choice of papers; they are just perfect for the holiday season. Thanks for sharing the examples and inspiration. Time to get out the dies and experiment!
