Christmas Candlelight

Hello and welcome!!

For today's post I made a Christmas card, which is clean & simple, and one layer.

I used the stamp named Christmas Candlelight from Elizabeth Craft Designs, and colored it with colored pencils. The sentiment was stamped with black ink and then heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I mixed gesso and a bit of water for the white splashes.

Here's my card...



I'm sharing my card in the following challenges:

Spring blooms!

Hello and welcome!!

Spring is in the air, yay!! So, I made a card with some fresh Spring blooms.

First, I die cut and glued the scalloped panel to my card base. Then die cut the heart from burlap paper and the flowers from patterned paper.

The sentiment was gold embossed on a piece of teal cardstock, then glued to the heart.

Finally, I embellished the flowers with gemstones and adhered them to the heart.

Here's my card...

Sealed with a Kiss!

Hello and welcome!

Today I'm sharing another love card, which is simple and easy to make.

First, I stamped the kisses using Versamark ink.
Then die cut a heart from white cardstock and stamped the 'muah!' using black ink. After that, stamped the red kiss and clear heat embossed it to create the glossy lips effect.
Finally, glued the heart in the center of the card base using foam adhesive.

Here's my card...



Here's a close-up of the lips so you can see the glossy effect.
