Happy November 1st, everyone! Gosh, how time sure flies. It is 7 weeks until we go visiting my family and my husbands for Christmas and New Years. Crazy! And only 8 weeks, roughly, until Christmas itself! Yikes! :-)
Anyway, I have a card to share today that I made for the current challenge going on over at the Hero Arts Club Blog. This falls into the category of "A Few Of My Favourite Things". There are a couple of favourite techniques here. One would be the embossing and the other is just simple straight forward stamping.
I really love this silhouette skyline stamp (H5470 International Skyline) by Hero Arts. I also love taking a none holiday stamp and creating a holiday card with it. It's a pretty simple card. First I stamped the skyline in black, stamped the sentiment (HA CL460 from Joy To All set) in celadon (Color Box) then dry embossed the whole panel using the snowflake folder (Darice). I added some bling and attached the panel to the aqua card base with foam dots. I love the aqua colour here. :-)
I'm also going to link this up to CAS-ual Fridays "embossing" challenge and Christmas Cards All Year Round's "winter wonderland"
Hope you all had a great Halloween yesterday. Thanks for visiting! :-)
Great card, Kim! I have that stamp, too, it's still unused... It was fun to see how you can use a non holiday card for the holidays. Need to do this more often! Thanks for the inspiration!ReplyDelete
Love the skyline silhouette - very attractive card. Thanks for sharing this for CCAYR 'winter wonderland' challenge - hope to see you again soon, Hazel, CCAYR design team - you could also enter this into my CHNC challenge extra for November - I'd love to see it there too. xReplyDelete
