Clearly, I have been conspicuously absent from the blog arena. I have been a BUSY card maker!
I got some new, fun supplies from Stampin'Up!, and have been trying to put them to work.
I made these--
I ran this one thru the cuttlebug with a SU! Sizzix folder, and I tried to mask off the doily/snowflake. Big fail! I almost broke my Cuttlebug. There is LESS embossing on the doily, but it definitely did NOT do what I wanted....
Let me say how happy I am that I do NOT have to send one person a thousand different cards, because it would surely kill me. I am very happy to lots of variations on a theme!
These are all made with the Hello Doily stamp from SU!, and some white embossing powder. I LOVE this stamp, and how much it fills up my card! I cut around portions of the doily to give some emphasis in areas, but I rough cut them (as usual) because I think the doily would get lost without a tiny bit of framing.
I also did a touch of copic coloring in some of the letters.
The sentiment is from Studio G in the cards above. Below is from Stampendous, the Holiday Home set.
Here is where I switched from stamping on Melon Mambo, and instead moved to patterned paper. I love the combinations!! These papers are American Crafts, Dear Lizzie set. The shimmer paper is all DCWV. The little snowflake punch is Martha Stewart, and the big one is SU!
As you can see, my sentiments DO get to floating around just a bit. Oh well....
I have plenty more cards to go, and more to show you. Stay tuned.
Sorry for the brief amount of explanation here, gang, but I gotta get back to work!!!
More later, as soon as I can get them photographed!!!
I hope your cards are going REALLY well, and that PANIC MODE hasn't settled in at your house. (I am not QUITE there yet, but I hafta get OFF this computer!)
Thanks for stopping by!
