Archive for the ‘Embossing/Dry or Heat’ Category


A big congrats to Vicki, the newest Featured Stamper! She has such a fab gallery & always leaves the sweetest comments. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the gold embossed tree & Christmas theme but used different images & different dies. Also as a nod to her living in Hawaii, I used a beach shells tropical themed tree.

I gold embossed the image on some confetti sand card stock then I added just a touch of color w/ some Prismacolor pencils. On the darker sand c/s, I gold embossed the Splatter Bg on the lower section then used a curved die to cut the lower part of the tree layer. The new greeting was also gold embossed & die cut w/ a circle die. I added some gold thread tied in a bow just under the top of it.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Such a fun site for the Inspiration Challenge (IC679)..lots of pretty things for Christmas! After much browsing, I chose THIS lovely scene for my inspiration, though I turned it around & my scene is looking out instead of in. I’m also adding this to the WT717 Challenge to use a window.
To make my Christmas window, I die cut the window & also some of the Pine Tree Forest. I used some Picket Fence Distress spray on the navy bg for behind the window & also on the trees. I also used a white gel pen to add more snow to the trees & punched a white circle for the moon before attaching the window frame on top. The bg was embossed w/ a brick folder & some punched branches added above the window. For the Christmas tree, I stamped & colored 2 of them then layered them on top of each other for dimension.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used for the tree.

The Special this month is the Covered Bridge stamp & Merry Christmas die – 50% off! 

For my very wintry scene, I placed the image into my Misti, stamped & colored the bridge scene, then masked it & the ground area. Since the trees are basically solid lines, I didn’t worry about masking them. The right side of the sky was sponged w/ the pink Distress inks & blue on the left. Then I spritzed it w/ mixture of very thin white acrylic paint & water. I mixed it about 3 or 4 to 1, (water to paint) in a mini mister. I’ve had this mix in this mister for at least a couple of years & so far it hasn’t clogged. I just shake it well before using each time. After removing the mask,  I used a white gel pen to add snow to the trees & rocks then stamped over the image again. The vellum overlay was embossed w/ a snowflake frame folder & I fussy cut out the center before sandwiching it between the cut out card front & a stitched frame, then I attached the bridge scene underneath. I also added a few snowflakes I punched out of white glitter paper. This is also for the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS614) & I chose THIS to case. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are Copic I used.
