Some of you have had terrible issues with commenting on blogs. See my Commenting on Blogs post if you are experiencing this.

Christmas and foil

I have often seen cardmaking videos on YouTube where folks have included foil into their creations. The beauty that the foil brings to the card was always breathtaking. When I learned that I could foil with adhesive, I decided that I had to try it.

I created 20 Christmas cards using these 3 designs in various patterned paper variations all with the die cut in the opposite color to the sentiment matte. I embossed the card panel with a Darice snowflake embossing folder. I gold heat embossed the sentiment using a stamp from my stash.


Anniversary

This month hubby and I celebrated our anniversary. Despite being so time-strapped, I wanted to make him a card. I had this cute silhouette die in my stash and decided this was a good time to use it.


New to me artist

Today I want to introduce a new-to-me artist to you - Lemon Shortbread. Vera is the sponsor at this month's challenge over at Crafting with an Attitude and this is my DT project. I chose to work with Watering Fairy.

I printed the image out onto Canson Mi Tientes paper and colored it with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I then cut the image out with a stitched rectangle die, but adjusted the size of the panel by doing some partial die cutting.


A journal page with Oddball Art

It is time for a new challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog and this month our sponsor is  Oddball Art. The challenge winner will receive $10 coupon to spend at the store.

The design team was provided 3 images to work with and I got Christmas Holiday Alex. I was not really sure how to use her, being that she looked so sad in her Christmas outfit. But then an important point came to mind and so I set about working in my art journal.
