Cards Again!

It's been so long since I've updated my blog. I've been stamping like crazy for a while and haven't had time to blog. So here are some of the cards I've been working on. I got some new stamping supplies and wanted to play with them. This is what I came up with using a new quote set from Heidi Grace and these beautiful paper flowers (that I got at a garage sale!). I embossed the background with my new textile embossing folder.
This card uses a new technique that I learned from SplitcoastStampers called stained glass. It is such a fun technique and has beautiful results. For this technique, you stamp an image with stazon on acetate. Then you color it in (on the back side of the acetate) with crystal effects and reinkers. So cool and easy to do!
This is another card using the stained glass technique. It's so much fun to make these cards. They take a little bit longer than normal cards, but so worth the extra time. I used white stazon refill on this one to get the opaque snow look. It turned out pretty cool.
