Beginning August 24th, I'll be posting a DAILY SNEAK PEEK of my creations from the SPECTACULAR Holiday Catalog!! I've been having tons of fun getting ready!!
DON'T MISS IT!!
Give some thought to joining one of my Online Stamp Clubs beginning Oct. 1st!!I send you TWO EXCLUSIVE complete cards each month featuring new and seasonal products. These cards are NEVER posted on my blog because my online clubs are VERY special. Current member have first choice to keep their spots before I open it the public. Stay tuned!
The golden leaves of AUTUMN are right around the corner!! Well...maybe not here in Florida! This creation is a study in contrasts: shiny vs. rough textures AND rich vs. rugged. Base cardstock color is Cajun Craze.
The die cut layer of burlap is actually 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon. I cut off the stitched edges of the burlap ribbon and then attached it to Crumb Cake Cardstock with Tape & Tear. It is a bit thick to die cut with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits, so run thru the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine twice and use a shim if necessary.
I carried the golden theme thru to the envelope lining using the Envelope Liners Framelits. This classic Vintage Leaves BUNDLE saves you 15%!
I LOVE this SNAPPY look! The SHINY sentiment really POPS it's message! This gloss is EASY to achieve by using Versamark Ink Pad and Clear Embossing Powder. The "secret" is embossing TWO TIMES for maximum smooth, shine!!
How do YOU like this look?? When I'm embossing thinlit words, I usually do several at once. I have a little stock pile of sentiments ready-to-go! TRY THIS!!
Today I'm showing two more Convention 2015 Make & Take Projects which use the SAME stamp set, but fill two different needs. This Mint Macaron colored Holiday card shows the "kissing technique" on the gift. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that thin candy striped ribbon!! It comes in Real Red, too.
A quick Holiday card & coordinating envelope!
The SAME Stamp Set creates perfect BIRTHDAY cards, too!! I LOVE a multi-event stamp set!
This set, called Your Presents, is a wonderful mixture of shapes and bows to mix & match! Look for it in the NEW 2015 Holiday Catalog starting September 1, 2015!!
