Happy New Year

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an inspiration challenge.   I created the card below inspired from the images below.

To create the background for my card I brayered silver Encore ink onto the Fancy Fan Textured Embossing Folder and embossed the black card stock.  I stamped the champagne glasses with silver Encore ink and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder for additional shimmer.  I added basic rhinestones to the glasses for bubbles.  I cut a slit at the fold of the card and threaded the ribbon through.  After embossing the card stock becomes a bit flimsy so I adhered a layer of black card stock on the back side of the card front for stability and to hide the ribbon.  

All in all this card was super easy to make and took not time at all.

Congratulations to an Eagle Scout

This week’s sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments inspired me to create this card for my best friend’s son.  He achieved the Eagle Scout rank in Boy Scouts.  I used Night of Navy, Whisper White and Red Glimmer paper.  I cut two 1″ strips of Night of Navy and Red Glimmer paper.  I downloaded the badge from the internet, printed it and cut it out.  Using the sketch made it so easy and fast.  This sketch would work for all kinds of cards and color combinations.
