That being said, here are what I hope won't be my final four cards. All of them are based on Skipping Stones Design Sketch 79:
My first and favorite of the bunch uses SSD's 'Home of the Brave' (currently on sale):
The moment I saw this set I knew those fireworks images would look AMAZING heat embossed in different bright colors against a black background, so that is what I did here, lots of stages of heat embossing in red, gold & blue tinsel EP. The plane is actually embossed with Silver EP, but in this light it looks white. In addition to the SSD79 sketch challenge, this card fulfills the requirements of the following challenges:
- Fab N Funky Challenge 76 - Magnificent men,
- Cards for Men Challenge 12 - Black & Blue (hopefully they won't mind the touches of red & gold), and
- Totally Stampalicious - Anything Goes (and they are having a prize if they have at least 100 participants, so I hope you will play along!).
The next three cards were meant to be a CAS set of holiday cards, all using SSD's 'Christmas Swirls' set (also on sale), such a pretty set to whip out a ton of elegant CAS style cards even when you are short on time. First I used gold EP and the star image:
This card also fulfills the requirements of Winter Wonderland's Swirls & Pearls Challenge.
Then I used the blue tinsel EP with the dove image:
Finally I used the red tinsel EP and the ornament image:
It looks much more sparkly in person, though I wish the sentiment had been a little straighter. (Holiday card count - 35, still way behind)
So.... those are my cards... I am going to go and spend some time with Ty, I wish I could stop crying, it is killing me to see my little guy in so much pain and unable to do anything to relieve it. In case this is my last post, best wishes, G-d bless.
