I spent almost 2 hours in the Cave tonight, and got three cards done. I'm pretty excited with how they turned out, whaddya think? I love the new set "Scandinavian Season". It's such a fun set to color!! I stamped the image first in chocolate chip & Versamark, and embossed the image with clear powder so that I could color it in. I used blender pens & squished the ink pads onto their lids to lift the color from. I then stamped the tree again and colored & cut out the flower & added a sparkly brad for the middle. The scandinavian snowflake is also pretty - used that as a background on the chocolate chip & baja breeze layers. With, of course, an embossed snowflake and sentiment. Heee, love my embossing!!
The next card is a 'thinking of you' card for a friend. I couldn't think of a stamped image that fit with what I wanted, so I just cuttlebugged a piece of baja breeze paper, and colored in the birdies with my blender pens again. I added a piece of ribbon & some 'patina' stickles, and voila!
I had the most fun making the last card. I used the smoosh technique that Jessica from Craft-o-rama is so fond of, and it really popped out the words. Then, I covered the paper with irridescent ice embossing powder, and then colored the words with Versamark pen, and put white pearl powder on the words and re-embossed the layer. Then, I used the snowflake stamp from Best Wishes & More as a background, and some pink & clear stickles to bling up the snowflakes. Some pink ribbon & dimensionals, and I have a pink & red Christmas card. Wheeeeee! Just got to make one with Chocolate snowflakes now, and I'll be set.
