Holiday Card Boot Camp Day 8

I love this image by Mo Manning! Isn't she precious? I used glossy paper for this and so the image is shiny and alittle hard to see where the light reflects. I haven't used markers alot so this is rather new to me. It was fun to try and I plan to use this technique soon to get a little more practice! I have loved taking these classes and know I will feel really good when I send out these cards this year. The red snow-flakes are by Stampin Up. So is the card stock and ribbon. Try using markers may surprise yourself!

Holiday Card Boot Camp Day 4

This card was great fun to make. The background image is from Hero Arts and is stamped on a clear acrylic card. The tree is heat embossed (white embossing powder) on blue cardstock. This is mounted on metalic tape and then adhered to the front of the acrylic card. The bling is assorted sizes and colors of 'jewel's.
Check out for great information!

I love taking this class! I don't work as fast as the class goes....but I am motivated and determined to complete the whole class....every project! It is just that I can find numerous ways to use the ideas that are presented in this class! Can you think of some ways to use these ideas?

This card is made by stamping with green and then imbossing and inking the background (I used the Big-Shot). Another Christmas Card done! I skipped Day 2....but will come back to that one.
Once the ink was dry I used Christmas Red Stickles for the berries.
