2 for the price of 1

Good morning.  Isn't that always the way?  No cards for a week & then 2 burst out of you all at once.  In a good way.  Not like in Alien.

Stamps: Bitty Banners, Teeny Trees (WM)
Ink: Versamark (Tsukineko)
Other: Trees die (SSS), circle punch; white enamel accents (Ranger)

The first card is for CAS(E) This Sketch.  Who knew that the Simon Says Stamp tree die would fit so well on Spellbinders Banners?  Well, I guess they probably made it to, but it never occurred to me to try it before now.  The scalloped snow was stamped with WM's Bitty Banners, embossed with sparkly stuff then punched out - perfectly fits a 1.5" circle punch.  A bit of a to-do with the enamel accents - don't dry cards vertically that have big blobs on.  Gravity will win!
Stamps: Little Bitty Bird (PTI); Nordic Winter (WM)
Ink: Versamark (Tsukineko)
Other: White e.p. (WOW); diamond stickles (Ranger); Cosmic Shimmer paint
And for my next trick... cosmic shimmer paint & diamond stickles.  A match made in heaven.  Embossing the image first means the paint is contained, so stays where it's told to.  A quick blast from the heat gun before applying the stickles.  I used a paint brush for these too - I couldn't squeeze for long enough to do all those leaves!
Before I forget: Kegbo, the font was Migraine Sans.

  1. AWESOME! Love your snowball ground and the triangles behind the trees open up a whole new world of possibilities for that Simon-tree! Thanks for playing along with us at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

  2. I really like your take on the CASE sketch! :)Traci

  3. I imagine that if the cards burst out of you in an Alien-like manner that they'd be pretty soggy! :)
    Love both of these but especially the cool blue trees on the first card. Thanks for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

  4. These are both pretty cards Jenny, love them both!
