First up is for our weekly CCEE Stampers challenge. Cindy Haffner challenged us to use lace in our design this week. I used this lace doily behind my main image. I used the emboss resist technique. First, I stamped the sentiment with Memento Black and let that dry. Next, I stamped the flowers with versamark and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. After the heat embossing cooled, I sponged Broken China Distress Ink over them to reveal the white flowers.
Swing by our CCEE Stampers blog and check out the designs of my teammates and play along with us!
My next card was made for Cindy's Teapot Tuesday challenge this week. You can get all the details at that link about her challenge and the destination station for this card. I colored this image with a mixture of reinkers and watercolor brush and Copic markers. I added Icicle Stickles to the sugar cubes.
Last Sunday was Featured Stamper day, which introduced me to Sarah's SCS gallery (her username is criminalgrace). Lots of cute cards! Here is the clean and pretty card of Sarah's I cased.
After I embossed the silver cardstock with a snowflake embossing folder, I brushed some glitter paint onto it and added a touch of dazzling diamonds. It's very sparkly in real life! The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is also from Rubbernecker; I absolutely love this beautiful font. I heat embossed the sentiment with silver. The large snowflake was made with a Sizzix Snowflake #2 die; the middle one is a Stampin Up punch; and the very small one is a snowflake rhinestone.
Here's another card using the emboss resist technique. This one was made in honor of the Queen for the Day, Maxell (Bev), on SCS. Here's the beautiful card of Bev's I cased.
This is a one-layer card. After I dry embossed the Labels Ten Nestability shape onto the Soft Suede cardstock, I white embossed the largest Evergreen tree from the Rubbernecker Evergreen Trees set. I sponged Soft Suede ink over that, wiping any excess off the white-embossed tree. I painted the snowy ground and falling snow with white craft ink and white acrylic paint. I sponged the outer edges with white craft ink and then distressed the very outer edges of the cardstock with Soft Suede ink. Added the bow to the top of the tree and was good to go!
Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Thanksgiving to my USA friends!
