Cracked Glass Technique

We made this card at one of my Big Shot classes and everyone really enjoyed making it. I used the Cracked Glass technique and in person, the butterfly is very shiny. To make the butterfly I sponged three different colors on our Presto Patterns paper and then cut it out using my Big Shot and the Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die. Then I used clear embossing powder and my heat tool. I repeated the process three times. Very easy for such a pretty look! I like what the pearls do for the card and I think they are my favorite new SU! product! My inspiration for this card came from Dayanna Donng. I hope this might inspire you too give this technique a try! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me!

Day of Gratitude

I love this new set, Day of Gratitude, which can be found in the Holiday Mini! I was able to make this card pretty quickly. I stamped my images with Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight onto Whisper White. Then I ran it through my Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. My scallop is also in Cherry Cobbler and I stamped Thank You (also in the Day of Gratitude set) in Cherry Cobbler too. I love these new colors. I hope this inspires you to give it a try! IF you have any questions, feel free to email me.
