September Rudolph Day

It's time for another Rudolph Day card using items that have been magazine cover gifts (this is my RD theme this year).  This card uses an Apple Blossom holly embossing folder that I've had for years and have no idea of the magazine.  The sentiment stamp is from a stamp set that was a cover gift with Making Cards magazine.

I embossed a piece of white card with the holly embossing folder and trimmed around the edge.  I placed the embossed square into my MISTI and stamped the sentiment in the centre before embossing it with clear embossing powder.  The panel was then attached to the card.

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white matt card blank
     Apple Blossom 'Holly' embossing folder
     Making Cards Magazine 'Essential Christmas Stamps'
     Versafine Olympia Green ink
     Cosmic Shimmer Clear Detail embossing powder

Thinking of You

A friend asked me to make a 'Thinking of You' card for a man so I used one of my favourite Woodware stamps for this card.

I placed the card blank into my MISTI so I could line up the seed and sentiment stamps.  I stamped these a couple of times with purple ink to ensure that I had a good depth of colour before embossing them with clear embossing powder.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Woodware 'Going to Seed' and Clearly Besotted 'Fancy Sayings' stamps
     Versafine Imperial Purple ink
     Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - No Layers + Sympathy Card
     Allsorts - Anything Goes
     Daisy Chain Challenges - Clean and Simple
     We Love Stamping - Anything Goes With Stamping

This is the card I made to send to Robyn for the August Card Chain Challenge.  I used the Colour Option (Kumquat, Lime & Grape), the Sketch Option and the Theme Options (Flowers & Friendship).

I stamped the large flower onto purple textured card, the smaller flower onto light orange textured card and the leaves onto bright green textured card.  These were all embossed with clear embossing powder and cut with the coordinating dies.  I stamped 'hello' onto a snippet of white matt card and embossed it with clear embossing powder before using a fishtail flag die to cut a banner, extending the cut so the banner fit across the bottom of the card.   I attached the banner across the lower edge of the card, with the flowers and leaves attached to the right side using a foam pad to attach the orange flower.

To make this card I used:
     7" x 5" white matt tent fold card blank
     Lil'inker Designs 'Modern Mehndi' stamps and coordinating dies
     My Favorite Things 'Fishtail Flags' die
     Crafter's Companion 'Sweet Florals' sentiment stamp
     Versafine Vintage Sepia ink
     Cosmic Shimmer Clear Detail embossing powder
     Snippets of white matt card, green textured card, purple textured card and orange textured card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Allsorts - Anything Goes
