Make it Monday #149, CASE Study #175 and New Year, New Stash




I have two cards to post today.  The first card is for this week's Make it Monday:  #149:  Glittered Embellishments.  I based my card off of this card by Laura Bassen.  When I first saw this card, I had to have the die she used.  I am still in love with that die.  I wondered what those layers would look like done in glitter, so that is what I made for this week's MIM--the bottom half of my card is one big glittered embellishment.  In the video, Heather suggests running both sides of the die cut through the Xyron machine.  That did made things very easy.









My next card is for CASE Study #175. I was drawn to the gold embossing, the simple and bold sentiment and the black card front.  I have a background stamp by Hero Arts that has a very cool pattern, but I never quite know how to use it.  I decided to use this stamp on the top panel of my card--I embossed it with gold and then sponged distress inks over the white parts.  I am entering this card into A Blog Named Hero #36 New Year, New Stash because I think this is only the 2nd time I have used this stamp.




Thanks for Visiting

  22. These both rock! I love that card of Laura's too and your glitter version is brilliant! You must have a big xyron sticker thingy huh? And your 2nd card is awesome! That HA stamp is really cool although I can see what you mean about not being sure how to use it. It's perfect for this design though and looks really good inked.
