Hope your week is going well. It is very cold here so I have been staying inside, doing some creating.
These are the cards I made for this months challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round. The challenge this month was to make cards using non-traditional colors.
Since all the cards are different, I decided to scan them individually instead of taking a pic of the whole bunch together.
This first card is made using the old label technique. I started by sponging the labels while they were still on the backing paper. I used an anti static bag and stamped the tree (retired SU stamp) with versamark. I then embossed with white ep. I then carefully transferred the labels to the purple background paper. After that was done, I used my stamp positioner and overstamped the second layer of the 2-stamp set with versamark and embossed with gold ep.
And it was done.
The next two cards were pretty much done the same way. I tore a couple large postit notes and masked the front of the card, leaving the center area showing. I sponged this area with blue, green and purple. Then I stamped the larger snowflake with Tempting turquoise and then the smaller snowflake with versamark and embossed with a purple ep. I removed the masks, stamped the sentiment and used the same purple ep. I added the ribbon and fibers and mounted on a purple base card.
The intensity of the colors on both cards is about the same. I am not sure why one scanned lighter than the other one.
This next card uses up some mistakes, er...leftovers, that I had from the cards I made for the November challenge. You can see those cards here. I used a Sizzlets die for the sentiment.
And the last card is pretty straight forward. The medallion is from SU. The small image in the center is a small part of an old lovely stamp made by Stampendous and I do not know who makes the sentiment.
I hope everybody is keeping warm.
