Double Slider Card Swap

Here is the final card swap for this year's technique album, the double slider card.  I thought I would be creative and turn the card sideways which created all sorts of problems including the huge blank space on the top of the card.  Oh well.  The cake effect once you pull out the slider was completely unintentional.  I also posted some instructions here.

OWH - Sketch #147

Here is this week's sketch from Operation Write Home.  All of the colors turned out to be more muted than I had planned so I added the sentiment on black cardstock to add some interest.

OWH - Sketch #146

This week's OWH sketch was very easy.  I used scrap pieces of paper and the christmas tree left over from my glitter window card.  I tried a new Sharpie marker for the faux stitching but I'm not really loving it and may have to go back to my white Signo gel pen.

OWH - Sketch #145

Ok, I'm hooked on the acetate and tissue technique.  Here is this week's Operation Write Home sketch.  Here is a link to the technique instructions and video.

Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2012 (November)

This month's tag is all about fall. I decided to do two versions since I wasn't sure the woodgrain from the Natural Composition designer series paper was going to work. Once again I'm using all Stampin' Up! products to show you that you don't have to go out and buy all new stuff. I started by embossing a leaf from the Autumn Splendor set in white embossing powder rather than clear so it would stand out more against the textured cardstock. I then added the Elegant Beginnings sentiment using black stazon ink and applied various colors of re-inkers with water, drying each time with the heat tool. I used the Cheesecloth background stamp to add additional interest. I finished each tag by distressing the edges, adding a button, a piece of burlap, and leaves cut out of cardstock.
