OCC Insider Day 1

I finally got to tackle some of the techniques from Online Card Classes' Insider class.  For Day 1, I used two techniques, using an "action wobbler" and soft stamping. Both of these cards were already made a while back but I had left the insides blank.

Here is card #1 using the wobbler:

Here is card #2 using soft stamping - I created a mask using the snowflake die that creates the window on the front of the card.

Ingredients card #1 inside: PTI LL: Ovals, 2012 Birthday Tags

Thanksgiving Card for PTI MIM #132

This week's Make It Monday is to use layered border die cuts on a card.  I used the Leafy Vine border die on my card and that adorable squirrel again!

It may be hard to see, but the I flipped up the larger leaf sections a bit to create some dimension and I also embossed the sentiment in white so it would pop.

Ingredients: PTI Nuts for You, Tag Its #7, Leafy Vine die; Doodlebug Happy Harvest pattern paper; American Crafts Halloween pattern papers; Basic Grey Life of the Party pattern papers

Peace-Love-Joy Card for Festive Friday

It's Festive Friday time! For Challenge #16 it's a trigger challenge based on the word "Peace."

I decided to make a one-layer card with a die-cut window.

It's hard to tell in the pic but I've sprayed the entire card with Calico Shine mist for a little sparkle.

Ingredients: PTI Peaceful Pinecones, Think Big Favorites #9, LL: Ovals 2.25"; Studio Calico Mr. Huey's Calico Shine spray mist
