Well, time for first of 2017 Scrappy Mo's Rudolph Christmas challenge, so this is a GDT post!!
And time to for WOYWW, or What is on your Workdesk Wednesday
PLUS time for NBUS #9 challenge - both technique and item
Where has January gone?? tomorrow is Australia day here- yay!
Firstly my card for Scrappy Mos Christmas challenge and for my NBUS #9 Use a new technique and new crafty item.
|My snowflake cheap China die or CCD (to quote RosA of Paperchase) was smooched well with versamark, then embossed carefully on snippet of card in Cuttlebug with rubber mat. (for clear instructions on this technique see here, cards + video by clever Jennifer McGuire). It's called embossed impressions, was so impressed at the method love it, so been meaning to try it.|
Heat embossed the versamarked die impression with gold embossing powder. The gold frame edging it was left over from another card with SB Pierced rectangles, gold embossed too, stamped the ODB " Joy to the world"stamp on bottom with mini Misti.
TECHNIQUE + Snowflake are my NBUS!! Never Used Before Schtuff to quote Darnell!
Say special prayer for Darnell for 27th as she is having surgery on 27th, but like a real trooper she is going ahead with her NBUSes!
|Items hidden from view cos its DT work, but you can see some detritus on the desk to guess some die cutting is afoot... dies to left and other items. Have more interesting desk from two weeks ago, below.|
|Printed out black and white image then coloured it with inks and coloured pencils.|
|I die cut it with Spellbinder pierced rectangles (reduced, rather than extended). Added black background to trimmed image. Then Die cut the 2nd largest die from SB Marvellous Square Dies, trimmed it down to make corners as shown here and below.|
|Added backgrounds made before with brayered embossing folders, CB Swirls and Bubbles folder. Thought they match the sea theme. These not used on another card, always handy to have.|
|Completed card used die cut from Spellbinder Exquisite labels eleven. Embossed verse is by Printblocks c.1995. a favourite verse for indeed WITH God all things are possible.|
|Used digi from WAW on first card, with CB snowflake folder debossed and smooched with inks Brilliance blue and silver.|
|The second card used both above folders and dies.|
|Third used the Snowfall on back, Lawn fawn stitched snowflakes + stamp, happy birthday from China stamp set on eBay.|
