Christmas All Year - April 2019
« on: April 01, 2019, 10:04:21 PM »
This month, let's make Easter cards instead.  APRIL FOOLS!

Of course, I hope you make some Easter cards, but let's keep the Christmas cards coming too!

This month's theme prompt is anything that starts with the letter     

D

I found a technique for you if you'd like to use it, and it's full of "D's"!

It's on splitcoaststampers : Dazzling Diamond Dust
I think it works well for Christmas!

Please upload your creations to the Christmas All Year album in the gallery and link here.
Have fun!  Just think how happy you'll be to have a stash of cards come December!

Like that tutorial, may have to see if I have any embossing powder that will work and stamp set that it will look good with :)

Thanks for hosting!  The recollections sparkle embossing powder might work, right?

Heidi, I'm not sure .. if it's translucent it should work.  Maybe try it over a scrap before you spend an hour coloring and then obscure it with embossing powder!  I know I did this technique years ago in a Stampin Up class with one of their powders.

I added an embossing powder to my wish list today (not for this technique).  I watched a Jennifer McGuire video.  She used Hero Arts satin pearl  EP, she said it picks up the color of the ink underneath, and has a pearl finish.  She stamped with a light blue ink, then Versamark, then used the EP.  Sounds cool, but then I'm liable to buy it, add it to stash, and then forget what it does!

so true Cindi, I don't know how many things I bought and then can't remember for the life of me what it was supposed to do.

One of the two alcohol ink cards I made yesterday was for Christmas.  I did not use the prompt, but am going to be thinking about the letter D!

No problem about the prompt Heidi!  Your cards are gorgeous.  I love the way you sized and positioned your backgrounds (yep, I always like your layouts!).  Are the birds dies that you inked?  Love the color variations!  Think about that letter "D", haha!

Yes, the birds are part of the birch tree die set. I colored a boy and a girl cardinal.  Havenít thought of things that start with D yet!!! Lol
