Stars For Christmas

I saw a cool card on Pinterest HERE and thought I NEEDED to make a Stampin' Up! version, and so I did lol! And then I decided I wanted to do it in different colours - so I did! hee hee Different embossing folders and ribbon and I was set! The ladies at my class today enjoyed making these. Looks like a hard card but it's fairly quick to make. Thanks for visiting :)

Background Bliss

Firstly - so sorry it's been ages since my last post - we've had school holidays, a family funeral and other yucky stuff and I've just not had much crafting time. Things are getting back to normal (ish) now and I got to spend  half a day playing in my craft room and will be sharing these cards over the next few days. 
To start the ball rolling I am showing you a version of the last technique I shared. This is the alcohol marker pen marbling one. What I did was stamp some stars in white ink and some in versamark which I heat embossed with red embossing powder. I then chopped it up and just randomly put them on some card. Added a few bits of bling which I coloured with Blendibilities. I just LOVE the word dies as part of the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies 

by themselves they are $51.95 or team them up with the Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set and you can save on the bundle for only $90.75

splatery squish!!!

That's the best way I know how to discribes this cool technique. It uses our Stampin' Up! Blendabilities, a plastic bag and some rubbing alcohol! The technique was on Splitcoaststampers email this week. It's lots of fun and creates such AMAZING effects. These are the cards the my ladies made at this afternoon and as you can see they are ALL different! AND they are fairly quick. We used photo paper to create them.
