Teacher Gifts

Hello everyone. I know I've been absent from my blog lately but I've been keeping busy running errands and preparing for the upcoming holidays. I did get a chance to make teacher gifts this year so I'm posting pictures of how they turned out. The teachers were really happy with them! I decorated a paint can with moonstruck and sky cardstock and used Ice Crystals and All Decked Out stamp sets. I got the directions for the Tresa Black's Fabulously Artsy Blog and the idea for decorating the front from Vicki Wizniuk's Blog. I saw the snowflake and ordered the stamp set in my next order because I fell in love. I filled the cans with chocolate covered popcorn...sinfully delicious!

Sketch Time Once Again!

I'm finally back to my challenges again! It's been a busy few weeks but I think I'm back to my creating again. This week at Heart 2 Heart it's a sketch challenge. These are some of my favorite challenges. Here's the sketch to follow this time.

I went with a New Year's theme card this year. I was looking for something different. I wanted some sparkle and shine for the card so I dug out my embossing powder, sparkles and liquid glass. I first stamped the champagne glasses in Barn Red and then stamped over them with VersaMark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. It adds a shine to the glasses. I embossed the snowflakes the same way. I added liquid glass dots to the back ground paper over the existing dots and to finish it off I added some sparkles to each glass.
