It is my turn to post over at Cardz TV Gallery today and I made a couple of cards. The first one is a Valentine themed, anniversary or just a love card. The stamp set I used on this one is Heart to Heart and you can find it here. I used some new Anna Griffin Cuttlebug folders that had came in the mail to me yesterday. So beautiful they are, they are for 5x7 cards, but this card is an A2 card, so not the whole embossing area is on this one. I still love it. The heart die is a Simon Say's die and I took a finger dauber with Hero Art's Shadow ink in Pale Tomato and inked the center of the heart, then I use what a left on my dauber to lightly ink the edge of the heart and around on the embossing. The heart is popped up.
My second card is a Christmas card. Yes, Christmas is done with and over, but I vowed to make Christmas cards all year long so I would have some made and ready to go when the time comes. lol I used two of Mary's Cardz TV stamp sets on this one, Snow Day and Christmas Joy and you can find them right here. I used blue gold foil paper and silver/white glitter paper by DCWV. This is the oddest glitter paper, it is so smooth but so sparkly and no glitter comes off what so ever. But it had a plastic coating on the back which is a little hard to die cut through. This die is a Spellbinder's die, Picture Perfect and I won it back a spell at the Pixie Playground for using snippets. Love, love, love this die!! This card looks so much prettier in real life. I didn't get home last night in time to take my pictures in the daylight, so my lighting isn't very good on either card. The inside I used some left over glitter paper to punch with my Martha Steward snowflake punch. Now believe it or not this glitter paper punches awesome with a punch. Go figure, you would think it would die cut easier, not punch easier. lol I stamped my sentiment and call this one done. I was in a hurry to get these cards done, and since I was out all week, this is all I came up with. lol
