Hope everyone's had a nice weekend. The weather here has been amazing -- two Chamber of Commerce days as hubby likes to say. :)
I have two cards to share, both of which were inspired by this week's sketch.
Card 1: A Christmas Card
|Cardstock Warehouse Paper Co. cardstock; stamps: Hero Arts snowflake and $ sentiment; sentiment in Stampin' Up! Night of Navy; clear embossing powder|
The card is far more striking than what you see here. Clear snowflakes have also been heat-embossed on the white cardstock. I wish they would have shown up better.
Actually, I was so pleased by the elegant look of the blue-on-blue and white-on-white embossing, I decided against adding a snowman to the design as originally planned and went with just the sentiment.
And, this pack of cardstock is so pretty. The papers have really nice textures. It's not mu usual Bazzill. Instead, it's a pack I picked up at a great price at Tuesday Morning. I wasn't sure how nice it would be, but I wouldn't think twice about buying it again. If you see it, consider giving it a try. :)
Card 2: An Any Hero Card
|We R Memory Keepers Red, White and Blue, black cardstock; Paper Inspirations sentiment in Distress Ink Black Soot; gems|
In addition to being inspired by this week's OWH sketch, this card drew inspiration from this week's Midweek Throwdown to make an Any Hero card and from this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge to make a card using black, white, and one other color.
Parting Thought: A Card-Making Party for OWH :)
If you live within traveling distance to central Ohio -- and you're free on September 29th -- there's a birthday bash card-making party going on at Scrapbook Art in Lewis Center. Click here for details.
If you can make it, I know they'd love to have you. The more the merrier! I definitely have it circled on my calendar.
Thanks for visiting and happy scrappin'!
