Second Post Today:
Hello! Here in Ohio, it is very cold!! More reason to stay inside and make cards in my warm studio!
I printed off a digital image, already colored, from Dearie Dolls....just love all her cute images. I placed the image on a mat of red CS and heat embossed a sentiment from Creative Clear stamps. I tried something new by embossing the front of my Blue card base with Cuttlebug EF Snowflakes using Versamark ink on the folder and then heat embossed with Snowflake Embossing Tinsel with glitter ( same as used on sentiment). Of course I had glitter everywhere and I had just cleaned my studio. But I loved the cold, snowy effect that I achieved. I also added some of the tinsel to the image by using a Versamark pen on the snowflakes.
Tip: To clean up the glitter, use a Swifter cloth to pick it up.
