Stained Glass Window

Hi and welcome to my blog! I have another card to show you using dies. I crumpled aluminum foil, flattened it out and glued it behind the "window" die. I then colored in the areas using alcohol markers to give a stained glass effect. Afterwards I took off the "window" die and placed another one over the top of the colored areas because the first one gets color on the white areas. I used a new Christmas tree die and cut it out of teal shimmery paper.

Let It Snow

Merry Christmas! I hope you are enjoying the season. I am showing a card today that I made with all dies. I just received all of these new dies and I could not wait to use them. For the snowflake background I used a piece of card stock where I had applied shimmer powders and added water for a blended look. For the "snow" around the edges of the card, I used a Tim Holtz stencil and brushed white pigment ink over it. The saying is a sticker.
