Seed Packet Chipboard Accent Tag

I enjoyed this technique so I'm giving a second try at the chipboard accents. Details Here . For the pot I used the inner part of the Papertrey Ink Seed Packet Frame die that coordinates with Garden Variety. The dots were stamped with Polka Dot basics and the label is from Garden Variety. Papers are a mix from PTI and MS.

Thick Chipboard Accents

Here's my take on the Papertrey's Make it Monday challenge. I made a Christmas Tag/Ornament and used the Mat Stack 2 die and Believe stamp set. I layered the berries with some Raspberry fizz cardstock, then added some dimensional glaze to them. The copic  leaves were colored with copics. I gold embossed the edge of the tag. This was kinda difficult to photograph so I included a few pictures of it. I stacked 9 layers of cardstock. Top layer of patterned paper used is from Provo.

Frosted Images

Here's my card for the challenge at Papertrey's Make it Monday This was a challenge for me! I could not get it smooth and a couple hit the garbage before I had it somewhat perfected. I will try again though. I used SU Close to cocoa along with the PPtrey Fresh Snow. I did the flowers, leaves and the Damask at the bottom in this technique. Stamps sets used are: Papertrey's, Out on a Limb, Damask Designs and Turning a New Leaf. Flower with SU Wonderful You. Paper used is SU Close to Cocoa, PPtrey Aqua Mist and Chocolate remix.

Acrylic Stamping

This is my card for the PapertreyInk Make it Monday challenge I needed to design a (keep it simple) Welcome packet envelope for church to hold brochures pen and gift card. This would be perfect time to try the acrylic stamping. I did this on a 5.75 x 9.5 inch envelope. I used the Life, Wreath for all Seasons and Vintage labels stamp sets. I acrylic stamped all the flowers and heat embossed a few dots around to go with the Welcome label. I added a bit of brown paint around the edges of the envelope and die cut as well. Great tip to frame up an edge!
