stamped candle

I found use for the extra large ribbon I weaved from my first attempt (video link on how to here).
I loved the idea of embossing foil, (shown to me by my team member Cheryl at our last team meeting) so I gave it a go with my simple SAS design bauble card.
On another note I have managed to create a watermark in pages, long process & I hope I'm able to use it & do it again, LOL, atleast until I get the appropriate software for mac.

Welcome Christmas

I have a lot of catching up to do here on my blog, so much has happened & to cut a long story short, the main reason for me not blogging is because my pc crashed & I lost everything!!! On the bright side I now have an apple mac & digital SLR camera to enjoy & learn all about.
So wish me luck!

I decided to share my favourite Christmas card design first.
Welcome Christmas with VintageWallpaper embossing folder that I inked up with a brayer on the right side with basic black ink before running the Vanilla CS through the Big Shot. I did the crackle glass technique on the family image & embossed the ribbon with Petals A Plenty folder. I shared this technique at my recent Summer mini launch in Sydney demoing the Big Shot & this was everyones favourite.
I used the gorgeous Red satin ribbon here, but it also works on grosgrain. You need to adhere the ribbon onto CS, I used double sided tape, but snail will work, just apply it to the CS which should be the same colour & size as the ribbon you are using. I am very impresssed with the new Vintage tags available in the Summer Mini, they shimmer & sit well. I added a little red heart to the other side, gorgeous don't you think?
There's not enough days left before Christmas to show you these cards individually so I've grouped them.
I used Elegant Soiree DSP (one of my favourites) & added Real Red for Christmas, another couple of new summer mini products I used are the Pinking Hearts Punch & Lace.

Back soon with samples from the New Summer Mini.
