OH, HELLO - Masking Technique

I love this background paper that is a piece of designer paper from Pam.  I just added a ribbon and a sentiment on top of the paper.  It turned out a beautiful card as it is. 
For the sentiment, I stamped it and heat embossed in black color first.  I punched out an oval circle and used the negative side as a mask.  I stamped the background on top of the mask then sponged it softly.  It made a nice frame for the sentiment.

OWH Cardmaking Party - Feb. 17, 2013 at Susan's Place

Susan brought me tonight a box of cards from OWH Cardmaking Party at her place on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013. She and I went through every single card to make sure it is good to go to Sandy, President of Operation Write Home.
  • No glitter - checked
  • Card size A2 (4.25x5.5) - checked
  • Dark cards lined with light paper - checked
  • Stamped on back with "Operation Write Home" - checked
  • If providing envelopes, cards are tucked - checked
Total number of cards is 150 and some extra envelopes are enclosed. 

Oh, how much I am proud of everyone, Carla, Kathy, Janet, Joanie, Susan and her mom Nora, and Tricia, who participated in creating this beautiful collection of cards for the troops!  Susan did a GREAT job to put them together.  Susan, you are amazing! Thank YOU, my wonderful friend!

Please enjoy these cards.  I hope you will get inspired, too.

Blender Pen Technique

I wanted to share this tip - Blender Pen Technique!
On this card that I posted yesterday, the stamped image was not appealing to me.  So I played with a blender pen just for an experiment while I was hoping not to ruin it. It was a just easy simple touch but changed the look and turned out great as you can see below. I liked it very much.

Thinking of You...

Thinking of You...

I forgot to post this card that I made in Jan. 2013.

The tree image and sentiment were stamped on a piece of black cardstock with Versamark watermark stamp pad. I heat embossed them with pool party embossing powder. It looks beautiful in person.
