Christmas Bauble and Weekly deals.

Sorry I have been absent, I have been very busy.  I started to hold a weekly class at the Senior Center here in Lehigh Acres and have been prepping for my class series at the Lee Cnty Library East.  If you are in the area, stop by the library and check out my display in the front of the library it's between the help/information desks.  I did a simple display that shows the projects we will be doing each month.  It's a way to get the patrons excited about the series.  I am doing October thru January.  I will show some of the cards in my next post.
My weekly classes have had me bogged down, it is hard coming up with new cards every week that keep with a certain theme.

Well enough of my day, here is card I did with the single stamp Christmas Bauble (133824).

Super easy card done in Lost Lagoon and white.  I use a simple mat of All is Calm DSP.  The bauble was embossed in silver, then colored and sprayed with Elmer's glue and covered with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.   The ribbon is lost lagoon.  Hope you enjoy it.

Here are this week's deals, remember that the sale ends on Monday midnight.

Stepping it up!

A few weeks ago I posted a card using Cheerful Christmas stamp set from the new Holiday Mini.  It was rather simple and the more I looked at it the more I didn't like it.  So I stepped it up a bit.  It's easy to add a bit of card stock or a ribbon for a totally fresh look.  Here are a couple of verisons of the same card.
Simple version: Stamped one color directly on the Mat 


Step it up.....
Add a bit of color, I stamped the image on a die cut and clear embossed it.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up a bit.

Step it up.....
Add a Cherry Cobbler faux frame to the side of the die cut.

Step it up.....
Make it a WOW.  Add a full faux frame to really give your image some dimension.

Some times you just have to play around until you get it just right. 

Until Next Time....Be Kind and Do one thing today that makes YOU HAPPY!
