Season's Greetings Cards (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone :o)

Today it's my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles.

I made two same design Season's Greeting Cards, using two Jane's Doodles stamp sets: 'Winter Wishes' (which is back on stock) and 'Mr. & Mrs. Claus'.

Two days ago I got Heat it tool and supplies for heat embossing from my boyfriend. What an awesome gift!!! :o)

These two cards are my first Heat Embossed and Watermarked cards and I'm very satisfied with results. :o)

First I made a darker card.

I cut out a panel and Heat Embossed sentiment and white snowflakes on it.

Then I stamped snowflakes with VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad, dried it and created Watermark Effect.

I also stamped snowflakes with Distress Ink Walnut Stain. Using blending tool, I distressed panel, with stronger pressure on edges and lighter on the whole surface, as well as a card base.

I glued strong 3-D foam tape on the back of the panel and placed it on a card base.

I made second, lighter card, same way as the darker one. On this one I didn't use Distress Ink.

I Heat Embossed sentiment and white snowflakes, stamped snowflakes with VersaMark and created Watermark Effect, distressed panel's edges with Cloud White Chalk-Ink, glued strong 3-D foam tape on the back of the panel and placed it on a card base.

Both cards measure 107 mm x 138 mm (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").

  2. Just fabulous in kraft colours! Very beautiful both!

  3. I LOVE these cards Milka, what a fabulous design! The combination of white and kraft always looks great, particularly when the white is embossed... it makes it much more vibrant than using a simple white ink pad. Your first heat embossed project has been a great success!

  4. Milka, you are going to love your embossing tool! It so much fun! Be sure to try some of the Stampendous aged embossing powders, I love them! Yours cards are wonderful, I love your mix of the heat embossing and the watermark. Thanks so much for playing along with us at TCP Tuesday Challenge! Brenda
