Masculine Sympathy Card

I recently needed a masculine sympathy card and the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper worked great.  I started out by putting Versamark on my stamp first, then applied Cajun Craze, stamped and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I did the same with the sentiment only using Early Espresso.  I really like how this turned out.

Merry Snow Day

Just had to get this Snow Day stamp set, Snowmen are to stinkin' cute!
He is stamped in Whisper White Craft ink, then I put some re-inker in the lid of the case with a little water and painted him solid white.  This can either be left to dry or use a heat tool to speed up the drying time.  The snow at the bottom was created by tearing the edge of Whisper White card stock, then embossing with Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  I then applied Versamark on the rough edge of the paper and used Iridescent Ice embossing powder for some sparkly snow.  Snowflakes in the background were also embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  The ball cap was made by applying the Washi tape to some Whisper White card stock and then punched out with the Petite Curly Label punch.  Took some paper snips and trimmed off the points on the side of the hat.  Punched another for the bill of the cap in Cherry Cobbler and trimmed off a small piece.  Hat is popped up on a dimensional.  The scarf was made by crocheting a chain, knotting the end and then leaving enough end to fray.  Using the paper piercer, I made a hole on each side of his neck and run the scarf through the holes and held down at the knot with a glue dot. Candy Dots for buttons and the "Merry" was glued directly on top with some Tombow Multi-Mono Liquid Glue.

Flower Shop Thank You

I saw a card on Pinterest that did this technique and wanted to give it a try.  First stamp image in Whisper White Craft Ink.  You can set it aside to dry or use your heat tool to speed up the drying time.  Using a Stamp-a-ma-jig, I lined up the flower then slightly moved it over so some of the white was showing and then stamped.  I did the same for the leaves but stamped again on top of the Gumball Green with the two-step part of the leaf from the Stippled Blossoms stamp set in Garden Green.  I then added some Dazzling Details in the centers of the flowers.

Trying out the new Expressions Thinlits die, so fun!  
I have always been more for traditional Christmas colors, but I am loving this new color combo in the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper.  I was going to use Pool Party for the "Merry" but it did not so up very well so I used Bermuda Bay.  The sentiment was lined up with a stamp-a-ma-jig, then I used a post-it note to mask off the Merry part of the stamp.  Added the silver ribbon for some sparkle.

My First Christmas Card

The Holiday Catalog is awesome!  I just had to make a Christmas card as they are my favorite.  The Winter Frost Designer Series Paper is Gorgeous.  The packages are embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  First I applied Versamark to the stamp and then Coastal Cabana before embossing.  Using the Squares Collection Framelits I made a frame out of
Bermuda Bay to showcase the packages.  Silver embossing powder for the sentiment and some fabulous new bling!

Thanks for stopping by :-)
