Cracked Glass Technique

Hello My Stamping Friends,

Happy Thanksgiving.  It has been a fiasco getting my blog up and working.  Hopefully the problems have been solved.

Today I am sharing an old technique that I haven’t done in awhile.  I started with a base card of Soft Suede CS.  I used the Corrugated 3D embossing folder and Crumb Cake Cs for the second layer.  I used the Layering Circles dies to cut a piece of Very Vanilla CS.  I stamped the Holly image from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set around the circle and colored the image with Stampin’ Blends. I daubered Crumb Cake ink over the image.  I used Extra Thick embossing powder three times on the image then let it cool completely then folded it several times to crack the thick embossed image.  I used a dauber and Crumb Cake ink over the cracked image.  I attached the image to corrugated CS with liquid glue.  I am a huge fan of vintage and this turned out just as I planned.

#Elfie

Good Morning Stampers,

Last Saturday I had a  class that required several stitched squares.  I cut a few of them on center and had one left over that resembled a frame.  I am not one to throw out scraps if I know I can turn them into something else so I grabbed the #Elfie stamp set and proceeded to create a card.  The base card is Real Red CS. The second layer is DSP from the Wrapped in Plaid series.  I stamped the little elf on Whisper White CS and colored him with Stampin Blends. I attached the frame and the greeting.  I like how the scraps turned out.  Let me know what you think.
