I have two cards today, trying to play in some challenges, one of which is soon going to end.
My first card I made for The Ton - gotta play in their first challenge! their theme is celebrate and yes they sure have a good reason to celebrate - they just had their anniversary and with all those gorgeous stamps they are selling they are going to be around for a very long time!
I used those wonderful peony dies - I just love them! They cut the glitter paper so well. I have tried cutting glitter paper before with other dies (won't mention the company) but it did not really work for me. Those cut like butter! I added the sentiment (also from The Ton) to a strip of black glitter paper and heat embossed it. added two blue gems.
My second card I made for Ellen Hudson - its "Mix it up with Avery Elle"
I recently bought that cute Avery Elle set with the tree in the car (because I need more Christmas stamps...) and it has been waiting to get inked up! I colored it with watercolor markers and fuzzy cut it. The background is dry embossed and the snowdrifts are by STAMPlorations. And wait - the sentiment is By Ellen Hutson, of course - gotta combine those two companies!
