Cracked Glass


I have another card for the countdown challenge over at StampTV.  This is the cracked glass technique.

This is what happens when you are not very neat with your embossing powders.  Apparently some black got mixed in with the clear, lol.  I actually like the look for this particular card, it gives the circle a more grungy look I think.  I also rubbed Memento black ink over it after I cracked it.  This butterfly is from GKD Hope is Faith set.  Cardstock is SU and GKD.  The dp is a gift from my CSS secret sister, so I don't know what brand it is, but it sure is pretty!

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy new year!!

I'm baaaack!

Hello!  I hope everyone had a great Christmas and getting ready for the new year!  I finally did some stamping last night.  I haven't done any since before Christmas, just had too many other things to do.  So, over at StampTV, Gina is doing a countdown of this year's top 10 videos, and we can make cards with those techniques and be entered into a drawing for the next StampTV kit coming out in January.  Isn't that great?!  So, I made a split negative card:

I used stamps from the spring mix kit and the sentiment is from lovely labels 2.  The black panel is embossed with CB folder swiss dots.  Cardstock and ribbon is from GKD.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to have some more cards made over the next few days!

Merry Christmas!

Good morning on this Christmas Eve!!  I haven't been blogging much due to all the Chistmas preparations, but plan to remedy that next week when hopefully I will get back into some stamping.

I hope everyone has a very merry, safe and fun Christmas holiday, spending time with those you love!

You Rock!

Tonight I have a Congratulations card that I am using for a couple of challenges:
Card Creations: Favorite Occasions Congratulations Challenge in the Moxie Fab World and Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge to make a card for congrats or encouragement.

Cardstock, stamps and ribbon are from Gina K Designs.  DP is from Basic Grey.

Now for a little bragging:  I really made this card for my son,( it just happened to fulfill a couple of challenges.)  He really does rock, because tonight he was inducted into National Honor Society!
He is the boy in the middle in the front row.
Thanks for stopping by!
