OWH Tutorial/Bonus Sketch & Sherbies and Embossing

Good Tuesday Afternoon,

Hope everyone enjoyed all of the fun this past weekend.  I know I did -- I still need to visit many of the wonderful works of art everyone has posted for all of the challenges.

Today I incorporated three challenges plus today's tutorial regarding glitter.  I usually don't use any glitter for our OWH cards except I have done two cards now with some glitter.  OH NO!!!!  you say  -- but wait! --  I did cover the glitter so it couldn't escape -- much like Sandy did in her glitter video.   I used glitter under my stained glass technique for first challenge in the VCMP  and today I put it under my velum.  It sparkles a little, but you really have to look.  I used it on the candle tips for the flames on today's card.

Today's card is for the OWH Bonus Sketch on Monday - Fawn Lawn Week making cards for our service members to send home to their kids.   I checked out their stamps and they are really cute - unfortunately I don't have many kid type stamps nor do I have any Fawn Lawn stamps (for now anyway).  I did find in my stash of stamps a set that I received some time ago from the Cardmaking magazine designed by Adam Pescott - so I used one of these stamps.

In addition to the OWH and Lawn Fawn challenge I am also entering in the The Lollipop Ladies  fortnight Challenge 53 - Sherbies and Embossing.   What is a Sherbie you ask?  It is an Australian candy with a orange and blue wrapper.  I found this Challenge from an invite I received on my blog from Lauren whose blog is Let's Get Messy! 

On today's card I used three embossing folders - Perfect Polka Dots and Fancy Fan both from SU and Happy Birthday from Provo Craft.  I heat embossed the image on one velum and on the reverse side I painted and placed the glitter.

Thanks for stopping in and hope you have a great week.



I took a close up trying to capture the little bit of sparkle on the tips of the candles.

Oh my, what an adorable card! I love the color combination you used and all the different embossing folders. I never use glitter on any of my OWH cards either, it's better to be safe. But I did do one card for Sandy's challenge and sealed it with Glossy Accents.

What a precious card. I love how your incorporated your glitter and I found your sentiment to really pop with the three layers of the modern label punch. Your kitten is as cute as a button.

Hi Sharron, what a great card. I love the different embossing you have done :) I really like the birthday embossing folder up the top. You have captured our challenge of Sherbies with embossing, at The Lollipop Ladies perfectly. Thanks for joining in with us. I hope to see you back soon.
