Hi there and happy Wednesday. I've got a card for this week's Make it Monday #180: Stamping Ombre Backgrounds. I loved Laura's background so much that I decided to try to make it myself. I pulled out the same stamp set and inks and set to work. I don't think mine came out as nicely as hers, but I am still pleased.
I was inspired by this card by Taheerah and wanted to try embossing in gold using embossing paste. Honestly, I don't know why it never occurred to me that one could emboss with embossing paste. You would have thought that I would have clued in when I heard the word ...'emboss'. Anyway, I loved Taheerah's card and used my SSS Falling Snow Stencil with gold embossing powder to make my card. I am entering this card at Virginia's View Challenge #9: All Things Metallic.
Cristina's tag this morning on Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, I knew I wanted to do something just like it for The Card Concept #23: Krafty Christmas challenge. I will put my card in the Clean and Layered category.
Last up are two cards that use the fabulous sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #99 and the fall colors at ColourQ #267. I made a plaid strip using WMS Offbeat Backgrounds and then die cut and stamped the leaves and acorns from Autumn Acorns.
Well, that's it for me today. Need to dash off to pick up my girls at school.
Thanks for Visiting
