Bordering on Romance

For this card I stamped the entire image from Bordering on Romance on Whisper White card stock and then punched out the circle and colored it. I stamped the image a second time and cut out the flowers. To give the flowers some dimension I put them on a foam pad and rubbed over the petals with the Simply Scored Stylus in a circular motion. Then I attached the flowers to the image with Dimensionals.

Lego Ninjago Kai

Another Lego Ninjago Birthday card. For instructions on how to assemble the body see the Sensei Wu tutorial. The rest was cut free hand. The background is sponged in different shades of yellow and brown, using the masking technique. To make it look like a swirly motion I took some makers and went over the yellow areas in a circular motion.

Holiday Frame Christmas Lodge

I love, love, love the Christmas Lodge stamp set. For the snow on the roof I made my own puffy paint - see below for the recipe. After applying the puffy paint I sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds on top and puffed it up with my heat tool.

I embossed the Holiday Frame on Cherry Cobbler Core' donations card stock, sanded it with the SU Sanding System and attached some color coordinated ruffled Scalloped Ribbon on the back side. I then attached the stamped image to the frame and and adhered that to the card with some Dimensionals.

Puffy Paint
1 part flour
1 part salt
1 part water

I used 1 tablespoon each.
