Holiday Card Series 2014 – Day 7 + Wow Embossing Powder GIVEAWAY!

Hello, all!

Today I have Day 7 of the Holiday Card Series and a giveaway for you all. :)

Wow just came out with six new embossing glitters and I got a chance to try them out (available at Simon now). For today’s card, I used the new Whirlpool color to emboss snowflakes from Avery Elle’s Noel stamp set. The blue glitter embossing powder is so pretty on black cardstock! I love how it turned out.

I gave the glitter the “rub test,” meaning I tested to see how much glitter would come off when I rubbed it. A little bit came off at first, but them it eventually “calms down” and no glitter flakes off. So you could certainly rub off as must as possible before sending the card if you’re worried about the card recipient getting an envelope full of glitter. :)

NOTE: Be sure to check out the giveaway below the video. :)

Holiday Card Series 2014 – Day 6

Happy Friday, all!

For the Day 6 video of the Holiday Card Series I decided to use the Village dies from Simon Says Stamp to create a scene. The background behind the village was created with a watercolor background that I added the Falling Snow stencil and Embossing Paste to. I love the non-traditional colors. So happy and cheerful. :)

The greeting was stamped using the Peace of Earth stamp set and then embossed with white embossing powder.

Holiday Card Series 2014 – Day 5 + Mama Elephant Stampede

Happy Wednesday, all!

Today’s Holiday Card Series video and card also double as part of a Mama Elephant Stampede (aka blog hop). Mama Elephant has some awesome new stamps and dies for you all!

I played with the new Artic Penguins and Season’s Greetings stamp sets (also available at Simon HERE)…

The penguin scene was masked and stamped, and then colored with Copic Markers. I’m totally loving creating night skies with Distress Inks recently. Remember last Friday’s card? :)

Anyhow, here’s today’s video. (Be sure to check out the Stampede info below the supplies).
