I had some fun playing with my new set from Lawn Fawn, ‘For You Dear’. Still on my ‘gold’ bent, I decided to team them up with Hero Arts CL318 Stars stamp set, using gold embossing powder. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn ‘Upon a Star’ set.
I added them to some scraps of glittery design paper scraps. I thought they were so cute and would make a great card for many occasions, including Christmas.

Obviously I was having a gold thing going while I was playing.
This card uses Altnew’s beautiful Arabesque Medallion, heat embossed in gold then smooched with a combination of Distress and Delicatta Gold Inks and pearlised water to add a little extra sparkle. IRL it is so sparkly!

I am in need of quite a few special cards lately, so I’ve been busy playing with a few different ideas.
Once again, this card has no colouring! Very different! LOL!
Using a piece of pink cardstock, I used Versamark Ink for the Altnew Layered Dahlia Stencil A and Delicatta Gold Ink for layer B. I finished with gold heat embossed sentiments from Altnew ‘Believe’ stamp set and some gold studs.
The effect is really pretty IRL.

I love this black and white card with its elegant 1920’s lady. There is no colouring! Such a change for me. 🙂
I seem to be dragging out lots of the old wood mount stamps lately. This card features a Stampin’ Up background and the lady is one I picked up on a throwout table long ago.

This card features an ‘oldie but goodie’ wood block stamp by a local stamp maker. The background was water coloured using Distress Inks then heat embossed using Copper embossing powder. I finished it with a similarly shaped leaf shape and sentiment also copper heat embossed.
I hope this photo shows a little better how pretty the copper embossing really is. Unfortunately, it causes a bit of glare when the light hits it at many angles.

I love this Penny Black stamp – Tulip Bouquet, which was one of my first stamps (wood mounted) and it has featured on so many cards over the years.
This simple one layer card is a wateroloured version with a lovely sentiment from Altnew.
