I thought I was ready to blog when I created this blog, but I guess I was wrong. I have been stamping more lately, so I feel ready to give this another try. I have started making my Christmas cards. Here are a couple of cards I made.
I was at a scrapbook/stamping weekend in WI recently and bought this beautiful poinsettia stamp from The Angel Company. I thought it would look nice cut and layered as I did here. After making this card, I don't think I will be mass producing this card. My fingers won't be able to handle all that cutting!
Supplies: Poinsettia from TAC; Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Always Artichoke cardstock; VersaMark & Encore Gold ink; gold embossing powder, gold ribbon, snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder, Martha Stewart border punch.
This card uses a cute polar bear stamp from Gina K...isn't he darling? Again, I used the snowflake embossing folder (what did I do before Cuttlebug embossing folders?). Before running the background cardstock through the embossing folder, I stamped it a snowflake stamp with Whisper White craft ink and embossed with Iridenscent Ice embossing powder. The snowflake embellishment is a foam snowflake I purchased at Michael's with glitter added. I colored the polar bear with reinkers. Unfortunately, it doesn't show up well in this photo.
Supplies: Lace Snowflakes from Stampin' Up!, polar bear from Gina K; Baha Breeze, Soft Sky, Basic Gray, Whisper White cardstock; Basic Gray ink and various reinkers for coloring; Iridescent Ice embossing powder, Baha Breeze striped ribbon, snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder, Martha Stewart border punch, foam snowflake, glitter.
I would love to hear any feedback from you on my postings! Thank you for checking in!
