Card Swap - Ghosting Technique

Here is this month's swap for the Ghosting Technique. Instead of embossing the background with  clear embossing powder, I took a shortcut and used craft cardstock that was already embossed. After sponging on Stampin' Up! Rhabarberrot ink, I wiped the surface with a clean paper towel to remove the ink from the embossed areas. I then applied two different widths of tape down the length of the card and attached a stamped and punched heart with Stampin' dimensionals.

Ghosting Technique

For those of you that are following my blog, you know that I participate in a monthly technique card swap. This month's technique is called Ghosting and involves embossing with clear embossing powder followed by inking the cardstock and removing the excess ink to create an effect called Ghosting. Pretty cool effect!

OWH - Sketch #207

OWH - Sketch #206

Happy New Year and welcome to another year of cards made from Operation Write Home sketches. I have to admit that I really struggled with this week's sketch. I think it was partially due to the fact that I didn't have any fancy circle cutters or dies but mostly because everyone else's cards were so darn cute. Just when I was ready to give up I found this scrunched up piece of paper, tossed out my layered pieces and voila, done.

Sketch 33

Here is my page for Shimelle's latest Sketch to Scrapbook Page :: Putting One Photo Centre Stage. For this layout I used a black and white photo of the Tokyo skyline with a focus on the Tokyo Skytree. I found the silhouette of the tower and the map of Tokyo online and used Stampin' Up! MDS software to create the page.

Sketch 32

Here is my scrapbook page for Shimelle's Sketch to Scrapbook page titled Working With Two Smaller Photos. For this page I chose two photos from a recent trip to Japan and paired them with really bold background paper similar to the samples on Shimelle's page. I used Stampin' Up's MDS software to create the page and then brought it into PSE11 so I could add the embellishments and drop shadows.

Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2014 (Jan)

Happy 2014 and welcome to my blog. This is my third year participating in Tim's monthly tag challenge. For those of you that have been here before, you know that I'm a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and I try to mimic Tim's techniques using  all SU products.

For January's tag I cut a layered clock using my silhouette and placed it over a piece of aluminum HVAC tape that I ran through my woodgrain embossing folder. The base for the tag is black card stock and distressed vellum stamped with a world map. The numbers are white rub ons. If you'd like to see last year's tags click here.
