Building up my stash

Once the creative juices started flowing, I spent time in my craft room, blasting my space heater and having fun. Below are some of the cards I had fun making. I'm trying to build up my card supply so that I always have a card for any occasion at a moment's notice.

The one below is one that we ended up making at my January stamp class. I colored with Copics--fun! Oh, and it's hard to see, but I added glitter to the Liquid Applique before heat setting. The Versamark on the circle is Frost Dazzle too.

Not sure why this one looks crooked--it's not! The dot stamp is another one of those fantastic TAC Gift With Purchase (GWP) stamps. :-)

Hmmm...I'm starting to see a pattern here...the diamond stamp below is also one of the TAC goodies--it's a PWP!

We ended up doing this one for my January class too, though that's not why I designed it. For class, we outlined the reverse masked layer in a TINY line of glue and added glitter. We just used one flower pearl from the Gem Collection for class. I should have taken a picture of that one so you could see how the two compare. I love the simplistic elegance of this card.
All stamps and supplies from The Angel Company.
