Happiest Of Holidays Card

Hello and Welcome!

I need to make a bunch of Christmas cards each year. So I want a design that is easy to mass produce, but still has that Wow! factor. That, my friends, is this card:

 

For the background I used the smooching technique with red, orange & yellow Distress inks. After it dried I stamped Winnie & Walter's Bed Of Roses with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The photo does not show all the beautiful shimmer and shine. Next I stamped the sentiment from W&W's Happiest Of Holidays set and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.

This card was not only easy and fast to make, but a lot of fun!

    Hello Fall Birdie Card

    Hello and Welcome!

    I saw a great stenciling technique by Laura Bassen on the her blog for WCMD. As W&W is also doing challenges for World Card Making Day, I thought I'd join in. Here is my card:


    I used W&W Leaf Effects stencil and moved it around using different colors of Quick Quotes' PowderPuff Chalking inks. I also used W&W's "hello" die cut from their Big, Bold and Happy set. It was cut 3 time with white, green & brown papers and layered on top of each other. The bird is from W&W's The Happiest Of Holidays stamps set.

    Celebrate Summer with Scrap Our Stash

    Hello and Welcome!

    With summer winding down and the nights getting cooler, it is the perfect time to enjoy making s'mores in our fire pit.


    I had fun layering Jen Hadfield's embellishments on BoBunny's Take A Hike papers. The "celebrate" die cut is by Winnie & Walter and the mini alphas are by Elle's Studio. I also added ink splatters with Heidi Swapp's Bronze Color Shine.


    Today I am up on the Scrap Our Stash blog showcasing this month's Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge.


    I went with the first column:
    Orange
    Doily
    Mini Alphas

    Hope you are inspired to join in on the fun, which you can do here.
