Red-Foiled Christmas

This first card measures 5 x 6 1/2 inches. I used my Glimmer Hot foil system with red specialty foil. I simply added the sentiment to complete it.

These next two cards were made with the negative foil. The sentiments are from Lawn Fawn.
I used a Sizzix embossing folder for the background on this third card, and silver matting.

Thanks

Another Martha Stewart punch was used for this card. I added scored lines to it, matted it and popped it up with foam squares. The frame around it was embossed with a Nestabilities die.

Christmas Wishes

A couple more Christmas cards. I'm getting close to having enough made for this year. What is really behind is my calendar. I only have three months done. I feel I'm running out of time for them! These cards are pretty simple and self-explanatory, I think. The thin striped strips were in my "strips jar."

Foiled Anniversary Roses

More foiiled pieces using my Glimmer system. I colored this one with Copic markers. The matting has edges punched with an old Martha Stewart punch. (I have a few punches out on my table, waiting to be used.) I added a scored line on the bottom and the top. The sentiment was printed on my computer and foiled with foil and a laminator. I added several sequins of various sizes.

This one is made with the negative of the first card.

Simple Sympathy

This stamped sentiment was in my card parts book. I die-cut it, matted it and popped it up on foam squares. I die-cut some leaf sprigs and added them. I used some pretty patterned paper for the background.

Foiled Christmas

Two more cards I made using pieces done with my Glimmer Hot Foil system. This first one is 7 x 3 3/4 inches. I matted with red. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.


This one was done with the negative foil and matted with dark blue. This sentiment is also from Lawn Fawn and is mounted on foam squares.

Thinking of You in Black and White

These black and white strips were in a jar and were in my way, so I used them up! LOL! They were already this size except for one strip which I cut in half. I placed them on a black panel and added a popped-up sentiment, which is from Hero Arts.

On My Mind

Two identical cards with different colors. The stamps are from Gina K. I colored each with Prismacolor pencils. I used Gamsol on the second one, but not this first one. I scored lines with my Scor-Buddy and matted the panels.

So Very Happy

Well, I finally have some cards to share with you. I've not had much time in my stamping room, but in short spurts I have managed to make several cards and will be posting them in the next few days. I took some time to use my Glimmer Hot Foil system one day and then I had to use the pieces to make cards. The flowers on this card were made with a scrap of the negative foil and dies. I drew the leaves, stems and grass with a green gel pen and added enamel dots in three different sizes for the centers. I matted the panel and popped it up with foam squares. The sentiment is from Gina K.

September Calendar Page

Oops - I forgot I hadn't done all of my calendar blog posts. Sorry this is a couple hours late. The leaf stamps are by Hero Arts and the sentiment is from Gina K. It's amazing that it's September already!! Our upcoming weather is certainly not September-like. It's going to be very hot. Have a great month.
