By The Sea card

Good Morning!

I took a break from working on my Mom's Christmas cards to play along with Mojo Monday again this week.  The sketch this week was a fun one, for me anyways.  It also gave me a chance to play with the Graphic 45 papers I bought this week at Hobby Lobby, By The Sea.

Hope you have an awesome weekend!

Celebrate the Season card

Good Morning!

I've finally finished my Christmas cards!  I know it's early, but I have at least another 50 to make for my Mom's Christmas cards, so I always need to do mine early.

I used both my Spellbinder die's and my Cricut Expression for this one.  (Same card, different colors.  Only because I only had so much red glitter paper.)

If you look closely at the white embossed sheet, you'll notice that it embossed everything except where I cut with the spellbinders dies.  I love the look of it. 

My thanks goes out to Sue Wilson at PartiCraft, where I learned this technique.  The video I learned it from is here.  

The Christmas Ornament was from the Christmas Solutions cartridge, one of the first ones I bought.  Celebrate the Season was stamped and heat embossed using silver embossing powder.

Mojo Monday

Wow, I hadn't realized it's been so long since I've made any cards, let alone posted them!  I have been busy working on my Christmas cards, I'll post them later this week.  For today, I was back over at Mojo Monday and it's contest week!
My take on the sketch...

and a detail photo...

Now that it's finished and glued, I've decided I'm not a fan of the plain (although shiny! lol) brown paper.  I may be back later with week with another take on the sketch.

Hope you all have an awesome week!
