I got some yummy new Christmas embossing folders and dies recently and finally got round to having a play this weekend. Here's what I came up with:
I was pleased with how they turned out as I also used inks with the folders for the first time too. However, my hubby (who always gives me his honest opinion) doesn't like the gold one ... what do you think? Should I make the bow smaller ... add something else?
It was my 17th wedding anniversary on Sunday and this is what I made for my wonderful hubby:
Circle frame and sentiment cut and printed with my Cameo;
Swirl stamps - Artistic Stamper
Ink - Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Embellishments - pearls, seambinding from stash; Card Candi (stamped with alphabet stamps)
Blue and Kraft card from stash
Frame painted with white acrylic paint and stamped with Black Soot DI. Then stamped with Versamark and brushed with gold and silver mica powder, then sprayed with gold Spray and Sparkle to seal it.
Split letter designed on Cameo Designer software and drawn with Silhouette pen on my Cameo. Mounted on black card and sprayed with god Spray and Sparkle. Flowers and hearts also cut on Cameo, then stamped with Versamark and dusted with mica powders.
The frame has taken pride of place in out lounge and my hubby was very pleased with it :)
I was worried he would think it was too girly!!
Anyway, it's back to work for me tomorrow ... cant believe that 6 weeks have gone so quickly. I need at least a couple more weeks to do what I had planned lol!!
Hope you're all having a fab week, enjoy the sun xx
