Up first is my most recent, a shower card for my soon-to-be sister-in-law. I used this month's card sketch from Stick it Down.
The colors for the wedding are black, white and red, so I stuck to that color scheme. I dry embossed the gray cardstock and heat embossed the hearts on the red cardstock. For the white hearts, I cut them from white cardstock using my Cricut and then heat embossed them repeatedly with some glitter embossing powder.
Next up is a card using last month's card sketch from Stick it Down.
This card was for my daughter's 6th birthday. I used some old K and Company papers. The banners were cut with a punch and the present was cut with my Cricut. I added accents with red and white gel pens/
I didn't use a sketch for my last two cards, but I played around with techniques a bit. This card was an anniversary card for my parents. I started with watercolor paper. I stamped some leaves on it with Versamark and then heat embossed it with the clear glitter embossing powder (I'm really loving that stuff!). Then I sprayed a couple of different colors of Glimmer Mist over the paper. I let that dry and rubbed the excess off of the heat embossed leaves. I then stamped some more leaves with some dark brown ink.. I finished it off with a die cut panel for the sentiment and some ribbon.
My final card was inspired by this card by Jennifer McGuire. The background was stamped with an October Afternoon background stamp. I LOVE how it turned out, it reminds me of those old metal ceiling tiles. I then punched and die cut some hearts and flower from white cardstock. I also die cut the sentiment in two layers. I heat embossed the "ever" layer and then glued it onto the rest of the sentiment. I sewed the vellum onto the card front to hold the confetti in.
