heat embossing

To continue practicing the awesome tips brought in the Online Card Class, Sparkle and Shine, today is shimmer day! I mixed Jennifer and Debby’s tips into one – using an adhesive as the backer to a Tim Holtz stencil to hold Perfect Pearls. I love the effect and can see mass producing cards this way! I finished it off with some ribbon and a saying.

Stencil: Tim Holtz

Perfect Pearls (shimmer): Ranger

Stamp & Die: The Cat’s Pajamas

I’m taking the cool class “Heat Wave” from Online Card Classes. I love heat embossing so this is a great way to relax and have some fun with the card supplies that I have. The stamps are from SimonSaysStamp using Jenn’s idea for embossed acetate on a shaker card. I must admit that it took me a couple tries to get it together, but the result turned out well. I’ll be giving this to a friend for her birthday coming up next month!

Splitcoaststampers had a VSN mini “Frozen” theme before Thanksgiving. It was only a 2 card challenge, so I was able to sneak that in pretty easily. I taught one of the cards for Margaret at Sparkle n’Sprinkle during a couple of the last Scrapbook Expo shows so it was a straight forward card. The other one was using Stampin’ Up! stamps that I’ve had in my stash but never used. That set is gorgeous!!
