Here are a few cards I've worked on lately. All stamps are by justjohanna. This first one is a little different. For the front of the card, I stamped the mini-snowman and the snowflakes onto a piece of transparency with white pigment ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder. The transparency is sandwiched between the two torn pieces of cardstock. I put some cardstock on the inside of the card so the white embossing on the transparency showed up better. This next one I call "Snow is glistening in Aldenville". Did you know there is a real Aldenville? It's in Pennsylvania. It's pretty close to Honesdale. Both are stamps by justjohanna. Ok, so that was your trivia for the day. I stamped Aldenville on the light blue cardstock and then drew in a line to anchor the image. Then Iused my White Pearl dimension paint to the town and on the sentiment to make it look like snow. I stamped the snowflake trio in white pigment ink on the blue strip. This last card was just fun. As you can see, I stamped and cut out all the images on this card. I drew the banner around the sentiment. I also drew in the border lines around the card. I'm really liking this doodling thing. I just have to have more confidence in myself to do it more often. It's fun.
