This first card I made using scraps from my November calendar pages (which I will be sharing very soon, I have one more to give!) I did this one for two challenges: the 12/9/12 card challenge at My Scraps and More (use chipboard) and the 2nd day of Christmas challenge at Frosted Designs (use two stamps). The brown piece is chipboard that I colored with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I let that dry overnight and then I stamped and heat embossed the fox. The sentiment is also stamped and heat embossed.
The second card used the current sketch at Unscripted Sketches. I also did it for the 5th day of Christmas challenge at Frosted Designs which was to use 5 gold/yellow items. I used yellow patterned paper, yellow ink for the leaf, and yellow embossing powder on the three words of the sentiment. The leaf was stamped with Resist Ink on Glossy Cardstock. I dried it with a heat gun and then used a brayer and Wild Honey Distress ink over it. I then fussy cut the leaf. For the background of my card, I used the Inkadinkadoo Stamping Gear that I received as a Christmas gift. I got to try this out at Scrapfest and really enjoyed the effect so it went on my Christmas list!
