Humm! In the mood for a little teasing today! I have been playing with my holiday mini catalog preorder. This mini catalog becomes live for non-demonstrators on September 1st. I do have a workshop tomorrow and we will be doing Christmas stuff. Yes Christmas cards,pages in August. So it put me in the mood to play with the Holiday Mini products. I Love the new Christmas Collage Background stamp. If you love making cards, background stamps are the basic of a great card. I often use my background stamps that is why I keep them at reach.
Today's card is very simple: I embossed gold embossing powder on the brush gold cardstock. Don't forget to pass the embossing buddy on your cardstock to eliminate static and prevent little blotches of embossing powder in places you don't want. I also used Bells & Boughs stamp set to add a greeting to the background stamp. It was easy to place it in the square spacing because I used the clear set.
Waffle Paper is a must on your wish list, it is so easy to play with. I added sticky tape on the back and was able to position it like I wanted.
Then a little 2-way glue and added the Champagne glass glitter that Shelli gave us at convention.
Voila, so simple! You can create a series of these alternating your colors: cherry cobbler, very vanilla and brush gold cardstock.
Order your supplies starting September 1st 24/7 on line, if you are a demonstrator, you know you can order anything in the mini since August 1st. Have you done your order?
