Thank you for the well wishes concerning my upcoming surgery. I'll let you know how I'm doing. Actually, I'm more concerned about hubby & Fritz adjusting to the changes we're going to live with for awhile--haha! Seriously, hubby has been wanting me to have the surgery for over a year & Fritz adjusts easily as long as he's with his folks.
Here are the cards I made for a few more January challenges. First is my PFS Challenge Review
entry. I chose the August theme of Beautiful Backgrounds so I could use one of my favorite stamps: Lush Vines.
I gold embossed it & added a vellum Braided Tag diecut to the center. I used more of the beautiful PFS Washi diecuts my friend Vikki gave me at our retreat last year. Really love the font of the sentiment from Sweet Friend Floral. The thick letters made it perfect for gold embossing multiple times to get a smooth, thick, shiny finish.
Didn't like any embellishments, so just added yellow Stickles to the flower centers & attached the panel to a black mat.
Next is a simple Valentine using AJVD heart dies taped together & die cut from a red scrap to make outline hearts. The pretty scalloped, mini slimline frame is from Trinity Stamps.
I stamped the very old MFT sentiment in Versafine Clair Acorn & clear embossed. Fun look to have the heart centers filled with Nuvo Glaze.
And one more Valentine. Had to use some of the little red hearts left from the previous card. I noticed cards on Pinterest using scrolls & hearts together, so I pulled out an old MFT scroll die. This time I went with a red, white & gray color scheme.
Luckily, I kept my old fashioned stamp positioner which I used to stamp an old favorite Amuse wood mounted sentiment. Christmas Red Stickles glitter glue was added to the hearts which gives beautiful sparkle & shine in person.
I added cardstock layers to the gray panel for a bit of dimension, but no extra postage required. I'm entering JUGs
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by. I'll get back to leaving comments on your blogs as soon as I can.
