I used gold glitter tape for the veins. Years ago a friend sent me a Christmas card with a sweet angel image diecut with a banner die turned upside down. Her die set was discontinued, but I bought Frantic Stamper's Arched Labels. They are slightly different & I think I only used a die once. Recently arched dies seem to be very popular & many companies have them. I pulled out my set & decided it is just fine. The 2 largest dies were cut from PTI Rustic Cream & the edges were brushed with Fine Linen ink. I stamped a leaf from PRS Fall Colors stamp set using my MISTI so I could double stamp with Fine Linen. I stamped the PFS Sweet Friend Floral sentiment in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate & splattered Gansai Tambi gold watercolor.
The leaves were glued in place & I used deep gold gems for embellishment. The brown card front was also stamped with a leaf from PRS Fall Colors using Versamark ink. Lots of beautiful shimmer & sparkle in person. I'm entering Double D, Snippets Playground & SSS Monday.
Next is my entry for Poppystamps September challenge. Recently a longtime cardmaking friend sent me a pack of printed paper. I seldom use my printed paper, but wanted to make a card for her using it. I used Poppystamps Small Curve Background & Lattice Small Curve Border along with a couple circle dies & Memory Box Posh Script Just a Note.
Fun to pull out an old piece of green variegated trim. The sentiment is covered in Shimmer Pico Embellisher & I added dots of Stardust Stickles to the flowers.
her video, I made this card. I love using the Wreath Builder Template, but don't think I've ever cut the wreath in half.
I used Ocean Tides cardstock to mat the panel, added shimmer to the leaves & attached 2 tiny light green gems for embellishment. Really love how this turned out.
Here's a simple CAS, graphic Christmas card that took me 1/2 a day to complete! The images are from SSS Peaceful Christmas & the inks are PTI New Leaf & Versafine Satin Red.
I added a couple cardstock panels for just a bit of dimension which makes a big difference in person. Decided it just needed 1 green pearl for embellishments. I'm entering CAS on Friday.
