Shoebox Swap card using FMS316

I knew I wasn’t going to get this post up in time to join the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches but I really liked the sketch so I’m using it anyway.

It’s another card using the gold foil envelope inserts from the Watercolor Christmas card kit.  I made the original version of the card for the Shoebox Swap I had on the 9th and then tried the other two versions to see if I could tone down the shine some.  It was really difficult to get a picture of it.

Here is another version using some black ink I sponged over the top of the gold foil.

For this last one, I tried the tarnished look using silver and copper embossing powders. I also cut the top panel 1/8″ smaller around than I intended but I think I like the thicker border.

Flurry of Wishes and Star of Light for PCC270

I’m playing along with the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge today.  Here is my take on the sketch.

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Flurry of Wishes, Star of Light

The gold foil is left over from the Watercolor Christmas kit in the Holiday Catalog.  Since I’d already used some of it on a card, I thought why not make use of the rest on cards instead of lining envelopes.  If you don’t have the Watercolor Christmas kit, just use the gold foil sheets.

Glittering Snowflake, take two

Last week when I showed my glittering snowflake card to my daughter, she asked if I could do it in blue (it’s her favorite color).  So I gave it a go.  I had a really hard time picking out the white photo mat and the soft sky base to go with my soft sky snowflake.  What I didn’t have any problem with was choosing the berry burst ribbon, I love that one!

It really is so much more glittery in person.  I tried spraying it with hairspray to contain the glitter but that didn’t work very well and warped the paper some.  I may have to try my polyurethane spray again.

Glittering Snowflake

After seeing a card made by Susan Campfield, I had to finally pull out my embossing paste and give it a try.  I also had to dig through my not often used glitter to find my Dazzling Diamonds from likely 15 years ago.  It seems to last forever.  I used a Foil Snowflake as a stencil for the embossing paste and then covered it with the Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  It’s so sparkly!  (I also added a layer of polyurethane spray to keep the glitter in place, fingers crossed.)
