Summer Card Camp 2: Week 3 Day 2

I seem to be running about a day behind with the homework assignments for the Summer Card Camp 2 class, but that is just fine with me. I am playing with techniques, expecially stamping techniques, that I haven't tried before.

I only have one card to share today - I used the Week 3 colors and Sketch #3, along with Jennifer McGuire's embossed die cuts technique. It was Jennifer's use of Ranger's Holographic embossing powder and the color palette that led me to a winter themed card.

I cut a Taylored Expressions snowflake border die and colored it with a couple of violet/purple Copic markers. It was then stamped with Versamark ink and embossed using Ranger's Holographic embossing powder.

I cut the MFT Memories word die, stamped and embossed it the same way. This word is tucked on the diagonal under the white panel.

In the end I only used part of the snowflake border die - these three fit perfectly along the curve of the panel and under the word "memories". My masked stamping of the word "winter" wasn't perfect, so a line of Stickles helps hide the stray bit of ink.

As much as I am enjoying the techniques that are demonstrated, it is the little tips that make a class like this priceless!



It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
