Peace and Joy

This was a sample card I made for my son,  It did not turn out to be the final design.  I will share that later.  The stamp is from Penny Black "Flourish Holly" and the Poinsettia is from Spellbinders.  I removed the stamp from the wood block as it is stamped twice on the card.  The card is top is cut 1/4 inch smaller than the base which is a white glitter from American Crafts.  The Ink is from Memento, a red pearl pen and Kaiser gems.  The sentiment I think is Penny Black too.
Hope you enjoy

The inspiration for this card is from Shari Carroll in the Online Card Class "Holiday Workshop 13".
Paper is from Authentique 6 x 6 paper pad.  Die are from Memory box (peace and the tree).  The embossing folder is from Sizzix.  It is a pretty simple card to make and I hope you enjoy.

Season's Greetings

Wow the holiday is coming a little to fast and I do not have all of my cards done.  I am mass producing cards for my son at the moment.  This was a card I made as a sample for him and he turned it down.  May do some mass producing of this for myself as it is super simple.  The sentiment is heat embossed with a clear powder after stamping in black.  Size is 5 x 6.5    Hope you enjoy.


Stamps:  Hero Arts "Dotted snowflake"  (the sentiment I am not sure about, but think it too is a Hero Arts
Ink:  Distress Ink:   Faded Jeans and Versafine black
Paper:  Silver:  American Crafts.  Bazzill and Neenah white

Tis the Season

In September our LSS had a very large workshop that I help with.  I needed to make some samples using a stamp that was being used at one of my tables so I may a little foggy on what I used.  The Stamp is a Memory Box that was stamped with Versafine Black and clear embossed.  This was then cut with a Spellbinder circle and  distressed with two colors  (Mustard Seed being the yellow I want to say Bundled Sage for the second color).  I added a clear stickles to the stamped image.  Using a Spellbinder tag for the sentiment I tried to give the illusion it was a globe.  The DP I believe is from Bazzill's Christmas line. The sentiment is from my stash so not remembering it.  This is an A2 card  Hope you enjoy.

Elegant Pine

This card was made using the Hero Arts Stencil "Elegant Pine" and Golden Gel Mediums "Light Molding Paste".  I placed some of the medium into a small cup and added Distress Ink Peeled Paint reinker to the paste.  After this was mixed I taped the stencil onto my paper and spread the medium.  It is like spreading butter smooth, remove the excess and pull off the stencil.  I then added Distress dry glitter  "clear rock candy" and let it dry.  Little Yellow Bicycle  was used for the framing and was cut using a Grand Oval from Spellbinders.  The card was then mounted on red by Bazzill.  A Sentiment from DRS designs was stamped in black and cut with a Spellbinder label and mounted.  Two large pearls finish off the card.  This card is very large being almost 6 x 8.  Hope you enjoy.
