Hi Friends! I have so many card swaps from last weekend’s On Stage event in Ottawa, that I decided to showcase them in a video for you, rather than upload them all to my blog. You’ll find LOTS of inspiration with the cards – whether you’re looking to make Christmas, birthday or just a sweet ‘Thinking of You’ card. All the supplies are from the current Holiday and Annual catalogues.

Rub your Embossing Buddy over the bottom
of the Black Strip. Stamp Saying at the bottom with Versamark. Pour Gold
Embossing Powder over and heat set with your heat tool. Touch the bottom of
that piece to the Versamark Pad leaving ink on the bottom and pour gold
Embossing Powder over and heat set. Attach to card.
Color your white circle using sponges.
Sponge areas with Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Garden Green. I sort of blended
the Pumpkin and Mambo in areas.
Stamp the flower image using Versamark,
also stamp the grid image in a few places using Versamark as well. Pour Clear
Embossing Powder over all and heat set.
Ink a sponge using Black ink and cover
the whole circle.
Wipe the image off with a tissue after
it’s all been inked.
Stamp the dots that come in Timeless
Textures with Versamark in a few places. Pour Gold Embossing Powder over and
Mount image piece to gold circle and then
adhere to card with Dimensionals
I’ll be back next week with more videos – have a great weekend and remember to take time tomorrow to think of those who fought for our freedom. XX
