Our wonderful DT and Blog Hop Coordinator Michelle let me play so I get to share a project Yey!!



This card uses the Pointy Poinsettia digital cutting files which were coloured by sponging on distress inks and pencilling in veins.  I also scored the veins.  
 I MADE MY OWN EMBOSSING FOLDER! YEY!
The backdrop was made with the Fancy Doily Snowflake cutting files I made my own embossing plate from cereal boxboard and podge glue.  I got the instructions from the oh so awesome Melissa McCarthy ( Melstampz ) HERE.  The recipe I used was one boxboard layer for base and 2 layers of the cut snowflake although I would try this technique with one layer first and see how it works for you.  The cuttlebug sandwich was A plate +B plate + embossing plate + thick paper( or thin CS) + embossing mat + B plate and see how it goes through.  For deeper embossing you can try a CS shim but test and DON'T force anything through your diecut machines or you could break your machine!  




MY SECRET WORD is  " WINTER"  Now please go to NANCY's blog for your next stop :)

Have fun & Good Luck!

More Christmas things!

Hey all! I just added a couple of things to the store :)

Snowflake Paper Pricking Pattern Set:


This PP pattern includes some PNGs that have transparent openings so you can layer images underneath.   This can be done in MS Word, OpenOffice, or any graphics software that supports layers and PNG transparency.   Here is an example using Snow Lady - Light Up Your Holidays image :)



This next one was a long overdue request from a friend " umm Tracey?  Can you make a poinsettia with jagged edges PLEASE? "  After much whining a succumbed LOL!

Pointy Poinsettia Flowers ( comes in Pre-Coloured  and as a DIGI/CUTFILE set)







 This example was laser printed and coloured with NeoColor II watercolor crayons and a waterbrush.

Have a great week!
