Fall Harvest

Using the copper foil and champagne foil sheets bring a little shimmer to this fall card.  Changing up the DSP gives one card more of a masculine look.

Painted Harvest

2017 October Card Class

I can’t believe it’s fall already. I had some ideas for cards and then saved them for the beginning of next year so that we could do a few fall cards instead. They are really some of my favorite to do! We haven’t had a chance to use the Piggie set yet, so I couldn’t resist and we’ll do one of those too.

Embossing Paste Brick Wall

I had never tried using embossing paste before, but found this to be fairly easy to do. One version uses double embossing by adding embossing powder on the paste and using a heat gun to set it. The other version just uses the embossing paste by itself. It creates two totally different looks.
