I focused on non-holiday cards and played along with two sketches. The first one was a sketch from My Favorite Things. Here is the sketch . . .
For this one I used pattern papers in my stash. The stamp set used here is Amazing which is new from My Favorite Things. I stamped in Versamark and used Ranger White Embossing powder for the "Amazing" and used Close To My Heart inks for the smaller sentiment pieces, which I masked so the words would be separate.
I used a Pico Embellisher (Wedding Dress) which I splattered on with a paint brush. I like it, but I'm also on the fence about it. I also used some "drops" from Queen & Company.
My second card was for the Pals Paper Arts challenge. Loved this sketch and was intrigued to use some Simon Says Stamp kit supplies from the November Kit. I was a little bummed that I was short on Thanksgiving cards this year, so I'm one card ahead for 2016 (just hope I store it well and can find it come November).
Here is the sketch . . .
And here is my card . . .
I let the paper do most of the talking on this one. For the sentiment, I used gold embossing powder. Love the effect of the gold on the orange cardstock.
I hope you find some time to create!
