Little Paper Shop Sneak Peak #3

Hello ladies...and gents if you're out there! Just wanted to share another set that will be released tomorrow at the Little Paper Shop (that's Sept 23rd!) This set is super fab and it is extremely versatile...not to mention the sentiment is just absolutely darling! Julia, you really outdid yourself this time!

This 1st card is my fav...I absolutely LOVE one layer cards...why I do not know...I guess miss JulieHRR really rubbed off on me when I first joined SCS...Hi Julie! Anywho, when I saw the set I knew I just had to make a one layer card! I used a versamark pad and then covered it with clear embossing powder and then heat set it. The rest is super simple, just ink up a wedge of sponge with Baja Breeze classic ink and sponge in a circular outward motiob until desired effect is complete...tie a white organy ribbon across the top and the sentiment in the same color ink and you are good to go! That easy! Now all I have to do is make another 99 of these bad boys and my Christmas card will be done! LOL

This next card is a little more "Christmasy" Because of the colors. I like the layout and the images, although I had a hard time trying to figure out how I wanted the holly to go...did I want them all to go int he same direction, did I want to alternate, so many choices! I stamped the images using my Stampin' Write Markers and then added crystal effects to the leaves and red micro beads to the berries...the texture is really cool! I embossed the base of the card using the swirls embossing folder and then stamped the sentiment. My fav part of this card is how the ribbon ties off to the side (this is way out of my comfort zone because I like everything to stay within the parameters of the card...what if it doesn't fit in the envelope is always my thing! LOL

I love them both, Sylvia! The simplicity of the dove is absolutely beautiful and I really love the rich colours for the holly card. TFS!!
