Wintery Reflection

Hi there everyone today I am posting a card that I taught at our Close To My Heart Consultant Team Meeting this month.  This card was done using the "Reflection" technique. The card is an A2 size card (4-1/4 X 5-1/2) and is used as a top fold.  Emboss the front of your card with embossing folder of your choice (holly leaves and berries or snowflakes are great choices. Cut an oval at 3" (page 42) and the decorative layer oval at 3-3/4" (page 52).  (The ones used on this card were cut on the Cricut using the CTMH cartridge Art Philosophy). Using light blue ink (CTMH - Glacier used here) sponge over the oval lightly. Using either a pigment ink or Stazon  ink stamp your image on oval and then ink stamp again and stamp on a piece of transparency.  Flip the transparency over so it is upside down (the "reflection") and position on your oval and gently rub over the transparency transferring the image to the oval.  (CTMH stamp set used Captured Moments).

Owls in Silhouette

Hello everyone today I am posting a card that I designed for Susan Tierney-Cockburn's Design Team at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  This is something a little different than what I normally do (I am really a flower person) but Susan has all these great dies I wanted to try out.  The background for this card has the "Northern Lights" technique.  You usually use this technique with silhouette stamps but I chose to use Susan's Garden CountryScape dies and build my silhouette from die cuts.  You can find the tutorial for making this card on Elizabeth Craft Designs blog found here.  Once here scroll down and you will find my tutorial. Please hop on over to Elizabeth craft Designs  and see all the wonderful products that they offer. Until next time - Happy Scrapping! Christine
