Beautiful in Blue


On a role now for Christmas and one of the colours I love is Soft Sky

The first card was made using the Hard Wood background stamp and also the softly falling embossing folder.  I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver embossing powder for a bit of shine and for the sparkle added the rhinestones.

I love the simplicity of this card and its says what you want it to say.


I stamped and die cut the mitten then ran it through the cable embossing folder and added a small bow


As always thanks for looking

Evening All

Well have had a busy evening crafting, my 3rd card for tonight is made with the wonderful Smitten Mitten stamps and matching dies.

I love this set as it is so versatile you can do almost any colours to suit.

I have used Soft Sky and Crumb Cake, with a Whisper White Layer.  I first cut the mittens and them ran them through the Cable Knit Embossing folder.  For the White Layer I put that through the Softly Falling embossing folder.

I used the embossing dies that are in the set for the cuffs and finished it off with a piece of Jute.



As always thanks for looking

Donna.

Painted Harvest

Yay, I finally got my stamp set and it is absolutely gorgeous.  I couldn't wait any longer so I made a card tonight using the set and had an idea to emboss the stamp with copper embossing powder.

I used a standard Whisper White bard base, and a Cajun Craze layer which I stamped the sentiment on.

I used another Whisper white layer and stamped the first layer in Cajun Craze then the second with versa mark and heat embossed it with the copper.  For the center I used the Chocolate Chip which I stamped off first.

For the bow I used the lovely Peekaboo Peach seam binding and a piece of the  copper trim.



Thanks as always for looking.
