I had one of my Hostess Club meetings this morning and I finally get to post the projects. I had such fun with these cards (and with my stampers)! The first is a demonstration of the Cracked Glass technique using A Wish for Peace. I love scenes like this with the antique look you get from cracked glass. I sponged the horizon in So Saffron, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and a touch of Chocolate Chip after stamping the main image in Soft Suede. A little So Saffron was put in the church window and then I painted on Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint for the church. The “snow” is Frost White Shimmer Paint applied with a slightly damp Aqua Painter. Click on the picture to see all the details. I embossed it, cracked it and applied a little more Soft Suede to help highlight the cracks. The layout is last week’s sketch challenge from Splitcoast Stampers, SC301. I used my new Victoria Crochet Trim and made just a little tab to add some interest. The embossing on the Soft Suede comes from the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and my Big Shot.
The shimmer paints never photograph as pretty as they are but they are beautiful through the embossing. I am also including my other project which is a shameless CASE of a card I saw at Baltimore Regionals. I don’t know who the original designer is but thank you! It uses my new Day of Gratitude set and I love the little bit of lace peeking out from the edge. This big medallion is so wonderful and I’m in love with that little acorn!
It appears that I am fully into my fall color palette, now that I look at my last few cards! I hope you enjoy these…thanks for stopping by!
