This retro stamp was embossed twice. On the one piece, silver sparkle embossing powder was used. On the other tree, pink sparkle embossing powder. Both trees pieces were cut out and used together on the silver paper. Under the silver paper is a pink paper. The words are by Hero Arts and were stamped with silver ink. Some small clear gems were added last.

These trees by Dreamweaver are a staple in the store. So many ways to use them. On this card, we spread black paste over a silver paper. Once the stencil was removed, glitter was poured over the paste. After the paste dried, the paper was mounted onto a granite metallic paper and then onto a silver mirror paper. This is always a crowd pleaser card.

Bit the bullet and did a class on embossing paste not too long ago. Had a very enthusiastic group who did a fabulous job using the paste. This is one of the cards we did. It is using a Dreamweaver stencil and copper paste spread onto this gold paper. Once the paste was placed, ultra fine colored glitter was sprinkled over the paste. After the paste was dry, the gold piece was mounted onto a copper paper, and then onto the bronze card.

Have you noticed my tendency towards red cards? Yeah, me too. What can I say, it's a great color! On this card some printed paper was placed and then the words were stamped in green. A strip of glittered sticker flourishes pull it together. The red card was stamped with a background stamp in Versa Mark to give it a subtle tone. Will move on to some other color cards tomorrow.

This is one I sent a few years ago, but, oh happy day, I found a few more in my box! I keep track of what card I send to folks. That way I can still use this card for someone who I didn't send this to before. It was inked with brown ink and the quilt patch was colored in with a water color pencil. Then a two way glue stick was drawn over any where loose glitter would go. Add the glitter, and it's done. Words are by Memory Box.
