Today I have a card that I made and gave to a friend who is having her first baby, a sweet little boy. I have had this stamp set for awhile ( believe now retired from Jane's Doodles), and I really wanted to make something from it again.
Today I have a pack of cards as a Thank You gift for my eldest daughter's mother-in-law, who is hosting Thanksgiving for both our families today. She is wonderful and sweet and I thought I would gift her with a few different occasion cards. I dabbed on the ink over the plate, then used the Big Shot gray to cut out the rest of the details.
Well, that's probably it for me today but I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
Here is my little scene created from Day 5 of class, Cute & Whimsical Cards. I loved making this one; probably my favorite, replicating Laura Bassen's whimsy!
This card was not only my first attempt at masking, but also at embossing paste AND copic coloring something that was actually an entire scene not just a small image. However, I just noticed that I forgot to draw in the rope from the sled to the elf!!! Oops!
Stamp: MFT Santa's Elves, Wplus9 Winter Pals
Ink: Hero Arts
Stencil: SSS Falling Snow
Wendy Vecchi embossing paste, Stampendous glitter on paste
Here is my Two-Tone Elegance card from our class. This was TOTALLY inspired by Debby Hughes in all her wonderful talent! Sorry, I copied it almost every inch, and what I didn't, I totally would change something about "my stamp" on it!
This card is taken from Day 1, Laurie Willison's video for Shapes and Masking with Markers.
If I had to critique this one, and trust me I have, I would use a little bigger image or a smaller card base. However, I really wanted to use this image from PTI and I didn't think of reducing the card until, well you know -- too late!
Well, here it is in all its glory - lol. My guts are churning just to do this, I'm not one to put myself out there but this has been a long time coming and a lot of emotions. This card is for the Online Card Class, Holiday Style. This card is from Day 1, Simple Scenes from Julie Ebersole's video.
Ok, I did it, I posted something on the big bad scary internet!
