    Winter Wishes

    Hi there
    Thanks for stopping by today. This is the 3rd card from last Saturday's class. 

    I think this card is kind of classy.  Silver and gold embossed trees and some white snowflakes are the only stamped images on the panel.

    I made my own corners out of gold card stock. I cut a square and then cut it diagonally. I then added a gold corner on two opposite corners and the sentiment was stamped and embossed  in gold on a label shape and that finishes this card off in no time.

    You will notice that as I stamped the tree, I overlapped and changed the colors of the embossing powder as I went along. Stamp from one side to the other. (I started on the right and worked to the left.) I started with the gold tree, heated that one, next stamped 2 trees and embossed with silver. Then reverted back to gold and then back to silver for the last tree. 

    After the trees were done I stamped the snowflakes and used white embossing powder

    The stamping was done on a black panel that was then attached to a cream card. The cream card seems to fade into the white background of this pic (sorry).

    Stamps: Woodware - Forest
    Paper/Card Stock
    : Black CS, Cream CS
    Dies Used: Spellbinders Labels One
    Accessories: E
    mbossing powder - Black, Gold, White detailed; VersaMark; dimensional foam

    I am submitting my card to the following challenges:
    I am finishing up on all the prep work, cutting and kitting for my 3 classes at Stampaway. I will be glad when this is finally done. LOL Stampaway classes start in less than 2 weeks. Click here to see the classes that are still available.

    Thanks for dropping by and I'll be seeing you all soon.

    Have A Wonderful Christmas

    Hi there
    Welcome back to my blog.

    In my last post I mentioned that I taught a class last Saturday and the cards were Christmas themed. Here is card number 2 from that class.

    I used DP from SEI and I just love that it has a resist design built in. Coloring with a beautiful blue ink applied with a sponge applicator brings out that gorgeous design.

    I popped that on a silver mirror panel and attached the panel to a blue CS.

    Next I made a flap, this is used to open and close the card.

    Here is the card opened

    The white panel inside hides most of the hinge piece. That scalloped circle has the sentiment on the front and I added a second scalloped circle on the backside, again to finish off the flap and hide the end of the hinge.

    Stamps: Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3552 Bright Christmas

    : Blue CS, White CS, Silver Mirror CS, DP SEI
    Ink: VersaMark, Memento Danube Blue
    Dies Used: Spellbinders Scalloped Circle

     embossing powder

    I am submitting this card in the following challenges:

    Thanks for stopping by today. Thursday, I will be showing my 3rd card from last Saturday's class. Hope you will be stopping back to take a peek.

    Have a great week
