Cards

Congratulations Cinthia!

I’m writing this post in the car, on my way to Frankfurt to the largest book fair in the world.  Besides my love for books, this fair is extra special. My dear friend Cinthia, who is a talented published author, is having her books featured at the fair and we’re going to celebrate this special occasion!

I made this card to congratulate her. I CASED Birgit’s card from Happy Little Stampers. I used a stencil from Stamplorations and sponged in Stampin’ Up inks, added WoW clear glittery embossing powder before heating it. The background text was also sponged through a stencil but strangely enough the embossed leafs didn’t act too much as a resist…I cut the panel with MFT’s stitched rectangle die from their Blueprint 20 set and adhered it to the teal card. The sentiment from JustRite was stamped with my Misti with Versamark and gold heat embossed on the scallop circle. I added the side strips and afew pearls with my pearl pen to finish the card.

Heres a pic I took before I finished the card and as the light is better you can really see how it glitters! I really love my new WoW embossing powders.

I entered this card in:

Addicted to Stamps and More – Anything Goes

Freshly Made Sketches – freshly-made-sketch

Stamps and stencils – Elements of nature

With the same stencil, I made another card but this time I used embossing paste before adding WoW gold embossing powder. The text from Penny Black’s “Rejoice with Joy” set was stamped with Staz On black ink on vellum before I heat embossed it using clear Wow embossing powder.

The vellum border was cut from a previously coloured scrap to which I added my WoW heartthrob embossing glitters and heat embossed it. Afew sequins and the card was finished.

The same stencil but 2 completely different cards. I hope you like them!
