These were among my favorite cards that I created for Penny Black's marketing department.
|#40-490 Pine Burst|
I promised to share a couple of tips with you today so here is the first one : ) I wanted to show how elegant this wreath is so I heat embossed it using a beautiful Copper embossing powder. Next I applied Versamark ink directly on to my card base - just on the sides and then using the same Copper embossing powder I heat set it! This technique is so elegant and insures you match your main image perfectly! Last I added some clear rhinestones here and there : )
|#40-494 Scarlet Majesty and #51-251 Rejoice|
This is one of my favorite images from this release. Doesn't this Poinsettia have incredible detail! Can you guess what my tip #2 is going to be - to add some shimmer and shine? I placed my card base in my Misti and stamped the flower. I cleaned off the stamp and, using Versamark ink, I applied ink just to the tips of the flowers. Naturally it lined up perfectly thanks to the Misti. As you can see I heat embossed the tips only using silver Embossing Powder : ) SO easy and such a beautiful result. Next I cut my die and painted it with Silver Liquid Leaf paint.
|#51-265 Woodland Scene and #51-251 Rejoice|
This is another super quick card made easy with Penny Black's layered dies. After cutting my two layers I applied just a hint of blue ink to the back layer of the scene. Next I inked Versamark over the entire layer and embossed it with a pearly embossing powder. For the top layer of the die I left it completely uncolored. I painted on a little bit of glitter for some bling baby! I used the same "Rejoice" die and left it white as well for a super easy and sort of snowy looking results! : )
Penny Black dies are the best! they always cut out like butter no matter how delicate the detail is.
OK! now let's talk about candy!!
