There be (more) dragons!

Posted by Micah at 7:00 AM 4 comments Links to this post
Here it is! Using the Sweetheart paper, some black and cranberry embossing powder and "Birthday Blast" and "So Lucky" stamp sets.

I spritzed the dragon's square with a mix of ink and shimmer paint to give it a glimmer you can't see in a photograph. The dragon and balloons are textured and a bit shiny due to the embossing powder.

One of the ladies in the group did a version of the card with both design papers flipped over (the black dots becomes white with pink dots and the red cross hatch becomes black) and then did the balloons in pink, and used pink ribbon, it looked great!

You may have noticed I'm really liking the dragons. Maybe. Just a little.

Thanks for checking in!

First day and blog candy

Posted by Micah at 8:17 AM 0 comments Links to this post
Today is the first day of myCTMH group (a group that meets once a month and agrees to buy a minimum of product and then trades who gets the hostess duties and benefits) and I'm both stoked and nervous! I've designed one 12x12 layout and one card using the requested paperpack Sweetheart. I've finished cutting all the materials for five sets (though some people can't make it so I'll be assembling three myself hehe) and I HOPE I've packed everything I need.

I'll be posting the pictures after the event... no sneek peeks!


In the meantime though, my upline is having a give-away on her blog to celebrate reaching 200 members! She's got a great blog, well worth the look!

Remodel of Aspire Card

Posted by Micah at 8:00 AM 2 comments Links to this post
I liked the Aspire card I did so much that I remade it for a card swap. This one was much easier than the dragon to make!!

I used Wings paper, with Whisper White and Vineyard Berry cardstock. Then inked the image, from the Aspire stamp set, in Juniper and the sentiment in black.

House of Plague!

Posted by Micah at 1:36 PM 2 comments Links to this post
So after Valentine's day my entire household got sick (we're still battling the remnants of icky). But I'm back and I'm posting, even if I don't have the next installment of the embossing extravaganza!

Instead I'm going to show you a card I did for a swap!
This card uses the Lucky paper pack and the Birthday Blast stamp set, both are new this catalogue. I used olive embossing powder for the dragon and the green balloon. Let me tell you... cutting things out for a card swap? means lots of cutting!! I made 8 cards... so I cut out 8 dragons and 24 balloons *dies*.
