Cheesy Love

It's time for our Wednesday challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week the theme is --- ANYTHING GOES! Since Valentine's Day is coming up soon, I decided to create a "Cheesy Love" card with one of Repeat Impressions mouse stamps.

I used my circle nestabilities to create the holes for my cheese and inked around their edges with distress ink to make them stand out a bit more.

Supplies and tools:
  • Labels 10 Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
  • Circle Nestabilties (Spellbinders) 
  • Prismacolor Pencils
  • Tuxedo Black Ink (Memento)
  • Distress Ink (Ranger) in these colors
    • Scattered Straw
    • Fossilized Amber
    • Spiced Marmalade
  • Baker's Twine
  • Sequins
  • Repeat Impressions Stamps:

Let It Snow!

Today I have a fun snow themed card for you in pinks and browns. When I was gluing my sentiment on,  I accidentally smudged some brown ink on the embossed background. Since I didn't feel like starting over, I diluted some distress oxides and created a spatter effect. Fun fix for my whoopsie!

Supplies and Tools:
These colors of Distress Oxide (Ranger) - Worn Lipstick/ Walnut Stain
Picked Raspberry Distress Ink (Ranger)
Sponge Daubers
Alphabet Punches
