Stenciled Krismas

These cards are/were for Merry Monday Challenge #158.  I was too lazy to go out and take my photographs to get them up on time.  The theme for this challenge was stencils.  I used embossing powder and embossing paste with my stencils to create some dimension.  The last one I decided would be a great ornament so I cut it in the shape of the stencil.

Circle of Snow

Freshly Made Sketches #186 - Sketch challenge.  I used pattern paper for the background
and coordinating stamps for the focal point of the card.  Used my MISTI to stamp NOEL
around.  The MISTI is also great for re-stamping to get good coverage.  Get your magnets for the Misti at Home Depot...they're cheaper there.

Fun Foam

Online Card Classes...Stretch Your Dies...Day 1....Fun Foam...I found that the multi medium
bleaches the pink card stock.  Will have to be more careful.  Guess it doesn't show on white.


Merry Monday Challenge #150.....Boxes...thought this would be good for a gift card inside.
Could use a magnifying glass to get my gold coloring better to the edges.
