I sure am having fun playing with the cuttlebug and embossing folders, along with my spellbinder dies. Some of the cards I got finished today show that.
Made some more Christmas cards
And am I very behind this year. I started making Christmas cards a month ago and only have 10 done. I am half way there. I am really happy with these cards I made using Basic Grey Wassail line. I used Stampin Up stamps, gold stickles, misc ribbon and inking to embellish these cards.
Thanks for looking
I found this cool technique on this blog today using inks and a brayer to ink emboss your embossing folder. Julie Buhler from Paper Pleasing Ideas has done a utube demo on her blog. This is so neat. I have already tried it.
Whoopee…..I just may be out of my scrapbooking slump. I was over to my friend’s Connie’s place today and we played all pm and part of the evening making cards. I only got two of them complete but am very happy with both of them. One I used Oxford Collections stamps and the other I used American Crafts Glitter cuts on it.
I had a blast last night on Lovebug. Stephanie thaught us how to make a gift bag. Although mine is not the same as hers, I am pretty happy with it and I plan to make some more. Woo hoo…..thanks Stephanie.
I had a blast using my penguin stamp, embossing, using my spellbinders circles, ribbon, prima flower, brad as well as stickles and sakura pen to complete this project.
Last night I couldn’t sleep so I played around with a sketch by Deanne Burton on Creative Scrappers and came up with this card. I embossed my stamped image (Imagination) and added Sakura Glaze pens for colours in the flowers and the scalloped edge. I also used Daisy D “Smile” Stamp and added Kaiser Craft pearls for an embellishment. I took some white sheer ribbon and ran it over the ink pad I used for the flower to come up with the same colour. I achieved this by using a pencil to hold the ribbon against the ink and went through the ink twice to pick up the colour. I also inked the edges of my card and the squares. The square are also lifted with pop dots to give it dimension.
I just received two roller doodles from Glitz Designs. I have tried them out with craft and dye ink and am a bit disappointed. I find the quality of the product to be cheap plastic and the roller itself does not have much of a raised impression. When I applied them to paper, the ink would run out before I could do a 12″ strip and also the ink would get on the sides and leave line ridges beside the stamped image. I only paid $4.39 for each of them. In my humble opinion, I would not recommend them. I don’t know if being left handed makes them not run as smoothly. Just stating my 2 cents worth.
