Embossing with a twist

We did this card at our unit meeting this past week. It uses embossing over a dark color with a light embossing powder. I didn't do the technique really well. I need some more practice.  It is supposed to look more distressed but I used too much embossing powder. The design on the left top came out best I think. It uses the Feb SOTM for the background design and we used paper from Olivia for the background.

Another Easter layout

This layout was also done at our consultant club. We used the bright colorful sides of the new CTMH Sophia papers, March SOTM Sensational, the Kraft color ready borders, and some hollyhock ribbon. They are a little too faded from the camera light. The Easter title border is made with the pennant alphabet set and is layered: stamped with hollyhock on white, then layered with pear and then hollyhock cardstock.

Easter layout

Here is a layout that we did at our consultant club this Friday. My upline, Sandy VanNostrand, hosts a consultant club for her 1st downline where we can go to duplicate her card and layout ideas for the month to help us get ready for our own clubs each month. I sometimes adapt them and sometimes use them as is :)  The colors are a bit washed out due to too much light when I took the picture. This uses CTMH Sophia papers- the alternate side of the papers using more of the goldrush color and pear.  We used the new pennant alphabet set, the SOTM-Sensational, and the most wonderful Kraft color ready self-adhesive borders.  These are great. I will definitely be using these a lot!! Check them out on my website to order some. You get 50 of them for $5.95.  So easy to use.

A cute Easter Card

                                                        flat for mailing
                                                       more of a side view
This is a card we made this past weekend at our unit meeting. The original tutorial came from Splitcoast stampers but Janice Alvord, a team member showed us how to do these. So cute- they slide up and the bunny pops up. The pink dotted paper slides on the cream base. The paper is from Sophia and the stamp set is the March SOTM- all from CTMH.
