My first card is made using the LG 711 Rhinestone tree and White Glossy Embossing Paste. Once the paste was dry I added Stickles Christmas Red Glitter Glue. I added more dots across the bottom right side of the card with the glitter glue. I then outlined the tree trunk and some of the branches with Stickles Crystal Glitter Glue. (Click on the image to get a closer look at the Crystal glue)
Next I had some fun with LG 660 Boot
For this card I pasted the boot with Black Matte Embossing Paste and let it dry.
Then I placed the Boot stencil back over the image. On top of that I placed the LJ 896 Large Flourish over the boot and applied ink from a Palette Stamp & Stick Gluepad with a large dauber. Next I sprinkled FX10 Kiwi and FX12 Glacier over the swirl. I removed the flourish and taped around the top, heel and toe portion of the boot. Again daub gluepad ink over the areas and using a stencil brush, stencil FX15 Kimono Red over them. It's mounted on metallic red paper and then on a glossy faux alligator paper. It really makes the image POP!
My Aunt is turning 80 this week. She raises horse in California so I wanted to make her a special card that reminded me of her. This is the result:
For this one I dry embossed the front boot. Then covered it with LL 3003 Hot Air Balloon. Using my Picasso to mask off the lower lines of the balloon, I stenciled the color onto the boot. Once that was done, color was applied to the rest of the image using Spendor Pigment Ink Pad #14 Magic. For the second boot image, the stencil was then repositioned at an angle and color added the same way as above. This time it was colored flat with no dry embossing.
I enjoy the large open stencils, they are so fun to fill in with other images! So this leads us to my last card.
For this one I started with LJ 903 Large Open Fan. First dry emboss, then stencil color leaving the center almost blank. Next LL585 Romantic Rose was positioned over the fan (the fan stencil is still over image) and color was stenciled onto the fan through the rose stencil. Finally, with the fan stencil still in place I positioned a plain piece of cardstock over the fan lining up a point at the upper edge with a "spoke" at the base. A light dusting of color was applied to represent the folds of the fan. This was repeated ten more times to create the illusion of the folds.
