Cards in Envy's first of the year card challenge theme is "Shiny New Year". We could either make a New Year card or it could be "shiny". I went with the latter.
I laid this card down to photograph as the shine didn't show with it standing upright.
I used a gold paper as a mat for the background. I created the polka dot background paper by using a background stamp and Versa Mark ink
then heat embossed with gold powder. I did the same with the sentiment "loved" which is a Unity stamp. I then used a Stampin Up heart punch. I put foam tape behind the heart to give it some dimension. I was very pleased with how this card turned out!
Let it Snow!" I had a card made and forgot to upload it until after the challenge! Oh well. At least I made a card. I was proud of it too!
I actually made it with Remi in mind. She loves penguins and it snowed here 2 days after she went home. I thought I would tell her about it and send a picture.
The snow flakes were stamped and heat embossed with silver. The snowy hills and penguin are a Unity stamp set. I heat embossed the hills and penguin using black powder. I colored the fence and penguin with my Copic Markers. I used a Versa Mark pen to add white embossing powder to the penguin's tummy and face. I put foam tape behind the penguin to add some dimension. I used a "snow marker" to create the snowy hills. It is a liquid that when heated puffs up giving it the effect of real snow. The sentiment was part of the stamp set. I heat embossed that as well with black powder.
