Northern Lights Watercolor Technique

 I made a card back in November for one of the Stamp Review Crew blog hops and got some requests to do a tutorial on my Northern Lights card. Well, it took me some time to get to it, but here it is!

Please pardon the coughing that I was unable to edit out of the video. I am not very experienced yet with this whole video making process, but was glad to find a "pause" feature on the video camera of my new phone :)

 Here is a better look at this card again, if you wanted to see it again :) You can find the original post here.

Please let me know what you think of this video in the comments here or on YouTube, and share it if you are inspired :)

Silvery Warm Wishes

I'm back with more trash to treasures! Well, really clean-up cards from the leftover bits on my desk :) I can't remember what I was trying to do when I cut all these thin strips of foiled snowflake vellum, but whatever it was, it was a fail! Then the pieces waited on my desk for another idea to come up.

I decided to keep it simple and adhered them to a card from in stripes with the center stripe embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. Then I wrapped some silver thread around the card above and below the sentiment strip. This could a Christmas card, or any winter occasion card!

What do you think? Is this something you would like to make in a class?

As always, here is the list of products I used. Please feel free to place an order with me, and support my habit ;)

Stamp Review Crew: Jingle All the Way Edition
It is the first Monday in December, so you know what that means. Another episode of the Stamp Review Crew! And this time we are featuring a fun set called Jingle All the Way. What makes this set so special is the amazing set of Edgelits that coordinate with it. At least in my opinion :)

If this is your first time hopping with us, then I should tell you that we are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that gets together every first and third Monday of the month to feature a single stamp set. We share lots of ideas for that set to get you excited and inspired :) You can check out the master blog roll on our home blog, and find all of our past hops, and all of the links will take you directly to the posts you are looking for!

If you are following along in order, then you just arrived from Nikki Spencer's blog. Fantastic, right?!

So, this card came to me as I waking up one morning this week. I love it when that happens! The epiphany was that the trees in this DSP from Home for the Holidays is the perfect scale for the Sleigh Ride dies! Some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and some vellum, and look at these gorgeous layers! I admit that this card is actually sitting on my kitchen table so I can keep looking at it :)
I did curve the sentiment to fit the oval edge, which is really easy with the clear mount version. I just laid it under the oval on the clear block and adjusted the curve until it matched. It is embossed with Pewter embossing powder. I thought I grabbed the Silver, but I was wrong. I really love the Pewter though, so its all good :)

Inside I stamped some snow and a little snowman. I did not really have time to find a good sentiment for the inside yet, but I will get there.

That's all I have for you, now it's time to go see what Rochelle Blok has created, I am certain it will be amazing!
