Tic-Tac-Toe time at The House That Stamps Built this week. I went diagonally with texture (scored lines done with my Scor-Pal), monochromatic colors and embossing.  You can never have too many get well cards on hand.  I used Repeat Impressions: 1603-K, Bouquet Bear and 8603-E Get Well.

Deepest Sympathy

This week at The House That Stamps Built it was Shirley's choice of theme's and she chose sympathy.  What a good topic as this is a difficult one and this will give all of us some good ideas.

I did a simple embossed card with some die cutting.  I used: 1317-L, Vase of Tulips and 4025-F, Deepest Sympathy.
I hope you will join the challenge, now each challenge runs for the full month.

Glittered Embellishments

Hello everyone! I have the  weekly Project of the Week at The House That Stamps Built, if you have a chance stop on by and leave me a comment there.

  I thought I would start Monday morning off with bright and cheery Glittered Embellishments.
You will need: scrap card stock, punches, die cuts, glitter, a Xyron (you may substitute double sided adhesive or postal tape),  and Glossy Accents (optional). 

Punch out as many shapes as desired with punches or die cuts, I would just double a few the first time:

The easiest way for the next step is to run them through a mini Xyron.  If you do not have a mini Xyron you can cover one side with, postal tape or double sided adhesive sheets (prior to cutting or punching your shapes out): 
Remove adhesive and cover with at several colors of glitter, I use about 3 glitters per shape, including a silver or gold for shine: 

Burnish well using your finger tool or a bone folder:

You can stop at this point and have beautiful embellishments:
Or take it one step further and add Glossy Accents for the look below: 

My finished card using Repeat Impressions 10201-W, Flower Power Background and
I hope I have inspired you to try making some glittery embellishments for your cards or scrapbooks.  Thanks for visiting.
