Faux Platinum Effect: Christmas Collectibles

Faux Platinum creates a very rich background.  It mixes together some rich tones of purple, turquoise and gold.  If you want to learn this awesome technique called “Faux Platinum”, come to my next Stamping Club night, Tuesday December 10, at 7:00pm!  

To make this card, I used the “Beautifully Baroque” embossing folder, sponged with Coastal Cabana, Rich Razzleberry, Always Artichoke and Early Espresso. Then, I stamped some stamps from “Gorgeous Grunge” set with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold powder.

NaBloPoMo Day 17: Christmas Collectible Card

This card was based on another card I made but I wanted to simplify it a little bit. This is one of the card that we made today at the Stamp-a-Stack Christmas Card class. (To see the other card, click here.)

I cut the Top Note shape with the Big Shot and Die. Then I stamped the swirls from the Everything Eleanor stamp set in Garden Green. The Christmas ornament is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and cut with the coordinating punch (get the Christmas Collectibles bundle and save 15% on the stamp set and on the punch!) To order it click here!

Today’s card is simple and elegant! I used the Christmas Collectibles stamp set and punch (get them together and save 15% on both the punch and the stamp set! Use the Bundle number #133283 for clear or #133282 for Wood.)  I used the Oval Collection Framelits to cut the Oval in Whisper White cardstock and then embossed it with the Fancy Fan embossing folder. In the background I used the Delicate Designs embossing folder and sponged with Silver ink. The greeting is from Joyful Christmas set, stamped in Silver Metallic ink.
