I heat-embossed the Santa and reindeer with WOW Metallic Platinum Sparkle embossing powder for a shimmering look. The card base was covered with American Crafts Glitter Paper.

OCC Day Six, In Detail and a Sale

Lots going on in the papercrafting world this weekend! First up, I CASEd my card in today’s Online Card Classes Watercolor class.

DaySix-Poppies

I watercolored a heat-embossed image from the Penny Black Blooming Garden set with Ranger Distress inks. I finished the card with a sentiment from Penny Black Special Wishes stamped in VersaFine ink. Even though I talk about “fail safe” sentiments in my video in class, I decided to “go for it” and stamp this sentiment directly on the Strathmore watercolor panel. VersaFine ink is so forgiving!

Next, I’m over in the CLASSroom today with an In Detail post covering Adhesives.

Finally, while you’re over at Ellen Hutson’s, don’t forget to check out the Mother’s Day Sale!

Happy Mother’s Day!
