The latest Mystery Designer was Shona. Wonder who will be the Mystery Designer this month??
The Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge also begins today. There are lots of prizes and recognition badges. Come check out how you can become a SNS Featured Artist as well. The theme is always Anything Goes using Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder, and/or Flock.
My project features the Sleigh Ride set.
The sleigh image was stamped and heat embossed with Cerulean embossing powder. I used Spellbinders’ Radiant Rectangles to die cut the image and a piece of light blue designer cardstock.
The trees from the Sleigh Ride set were stamped with Versamark ink on the blue card base, along with snowflakes from the Snow One Like You set. These were heat embossed with White Detail embossing powder and the die cut layers and image were layered on top. A few blue jewels were added.
I did some playing around while designing this card and decided to use some of the extra pieces to make a second card.
This time I embossed the image with the White Detail embossing powder and the blue cardstock and then die cut it and sponged a little White Cloud Versamagic around the edges. I popped this up in the center of the die cut white card base and layered a left over piece of the die cut light blue designer cardstock around the outer edge. Then I ran Dimensional Glue around the inside edge of this layer and added Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter and a few pearls.
This a was great way to make two fairly easy Christmas cards. Now it is time to hop on. The next stop on our blog hop is Shona. I know she has something fun to share with you.
