And now onto my projects....first up is this sweet gingerbread creation. To create the background for the card I stamped the gingerbread man image and heat embossed in clear WOW! Embossing Powder before applying two shades of brown Distress Ink over the surface. I also used the sentiment and round image from the new Celebrate the Season set for this card.
Stamps: Celebrate the Season set from Your Next Stamp
Ink: Ranger Distress Inks: Gathered Twigs, Vintage Photo, Hero Arts Java, Fancy Pants, American Crafts
Papers: Georgia Pacific cardstock, Bazzill cardstock
Accessories: Offray ribbon, wood button, Spellbinders die, white ruffle ribbon, WOW! Embossing clear powder, Copic Markers, large gingerbread die (Sizzix---I think it's retired now)
Next up is a Happy Holidays card in some more non-traditional colours. I used the new Christmas Bauble Robin on this card and did some paper piecing and colouring with my Copics. I used several pearl accents on the card and the background blue paper has some shimmer to it.
