Big Hugs

Five birthdays in January, so time to put away Christmas things and play with some new things.  I was doing some iron on letters on T-shirts, and since the iron was out and on 'dry' setting, I decided to try the wax paper resist technique.  I ran waxed paper through the Cuttlebug in an embossing folder, and then used a breyer to apply color. I used a Kaleidddacolor pad.  The circle was cut with stitched circles from SSS, and Hugs sentiment from a cute new stamp + die set  from Avery Elle.

 The HUGS is inlaid in the circle and was brush with Wink of Stella. Sequins are Pretty Pink Posh.

Birthday Star

My card uses  Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #191 and the CTMH Oh Deer! papers.

The sentiment, from a CTMH Workshop your Way set, Just to Say, was stamped first with Sea Glass ink, then with Versamark and heat embossed with a transparent crystal powder, then sponged some Sea Glass ink over it.  I cut banners and stars from some matt gold paper in my stash. The stars are a die cut from Verve.  I splattered some gold ink on the card base to carry the splatter pattern on the paper.  The sentiment bubble is part of the workshop set stamped in Sea Glass and fussy cut, then gold embossed.

They are predicting some lowland snow very early this morning.  We don't often get much, and I must admit I really hope it will stick for an hour or two. 

It's time for a new sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge today, and I pulled out an old favorite set, Snow Friends. I have been writing Christmas cards, and only need five more. But I also need three or four December birthday cards, and this card would be just right for one of those.

Hope you will join the AHSC this week!  Go over on Wednesday to check out the rest of the Design Team inspiration.

Happy crafting!
