Amazing You

New Sale-A-Bration set Amazing You embossed in Versamark and gold powder. Colored with Prismacolor pencils of Crimson Red and Carnation Pink. Stamped flower bouquet in background in black. Added white gel pen accents to sprigs and flower centers. Popped sentiment up on dimensionals.

Rainbow Builder

I know that I am going to love the new Rainbow Builder dies by Stampin' Up! So many possibilities.
Combined them with the Lawn Fawn fairies to create a magical sky scene. For the Mix challenge on SCS today to drizzle, I used squiggles of Dazzling Diamonds glittery stickles.

Penny Black and Hero Arts

Today's challenge was to choose one of the many resist techniques so I went with the standard emboss resist.
 I almost bailed on this one, it was a hot mess. The inks I used kept smearing on the glossy card stock so I had to keep stamping, wiping, blending. Thank goodness for the Misti positioning tool or I never would have kept going.
I used a large variety of ink colors, embossed in espresso with Versamark. Shaded sky and sand with various Tim Holtz distress oxides and regular distress inks, markers, and a white gel pen. The landscape stamp is Penny Black. Santa and the green row of trees on the horizon are Hero Arts.

August's Dirty Dozen cards

The six month hold period for being able to publish my Dirty Dozen cards for August is past so I am happy to share my cards and projects with you! Hope you like them.

I love the new panda popularity, love these sweet creatures. This Party Panda was a free birthday gift with order from Lawn Fawn and is for the current challenge.
I have also been working on the January Cards for a Cause valentines (for hospitalized children) Paired the Party Panda from Lawn Fawn with the heart from Sprinkled With Joy and the sentiment from Wild For You (all Lawn Fawn). Background is Stampin' Up! Bamboo.

Silvery Sparkly Silhouette

For the January Christmas Card Challenge with the theme of using a silhouette. I cut the deer by Darice from paper that had been sprayed with silver Glimmer Mist (on glossy white card stock) that had a swirly mosaic stencil pattern placed over top. Cut out the trees in glimmer paper and laid atop glossy white paper that had been sponged with Tim Holtz silver mixative alcohol ink. Sentiment from silver foil paper is from Impression Obsession. It's a very sparkly card :) I had to pull most of the color from the original photo as it looked really yellow, this is closer to the actual color/shade.
