2 of 4 Stampers Club Projects

Wow, the past little while has been something of a roller coaster ride. I had my Craft fair on Sunday, and was rather nervous seeing that it was my first time doing something like that. I was up the whole night leading up to it putting finishing touches on a bunch of projects. For the first time in my life my head never touched a pillow within a 40 hour period. I was an absolute grouch by the evening and ready for a mental breakdown. I'm not quite sure why i do this to myself. It was not to bad, I made good contacts and not bad sales, hopefully I've come away with enough experience to put to use for the next fair in Spring.
On to these two projects. These are for my Stampers Club on Friday, which I am working on in between filling some orders which I got on Monday and which are due Friday *sigh*(can't wait for vacation lol). They are worked around the use of vellum. The first card uses the City of David stamp set which is stamped on vellum CS with Versamark and embossed in Gold. Coloring is then done on the reverse with marker to produce a stained glass effect. The vellum which was cut in standard card size was overlaid over cream confetti CS card. The vellum on reverse side has glue dots to hold it in place. Glue dots are hidden behind embossed portions. Organdy ribbon was tied behind the whole.

This second card us made to display the dry emboss technique. Big on Christmas was stamped on Vellum CS with Staz-On and then flipped over. The SNW letters were pressed with stylus tool to create a raised embossed section. Snowman was stamped on Whisper White, colored, cut and glittered and then placed over main panel with a pop-up dot. Brads were used to adhere layer to Sky later. Holes were punched and bow tied. The other layers are Shimmer White, Sky and Blue Bayou card base. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to show you some of my Craft fair projects in the coming days.
