Here's what we came up with:
Lauren says, "As soon as you take color or pattern away from me (my two favorite elements!) I start amping up texture. In this case, that meant tearing, embossing, sanding, misting and embellishing as many different Core'dinations cardstocks as I could find in white, cream, and green; then piling lace, ribbon, micro-beads and pearls on top of that! I used a combination of machine stitching, foam tape and fast dry tacky glue to assure that all my layers STAY layered; and last week's Retro Sketch to insure that they were all in the right place!"
Stephanie says, "When I hear cardstock, I think of INK ... all kinds of ink. For this card I stamped an Ornate Snowflake repeatedly in Versamark on White cardstock & clear embossed. Next I sprayed on Frost & Dragonfly Glimmer Mist for all over color & sparkle. The same snowflake was inked with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and stamped on the blue sprayed paper before embossing & detail cutting. I attached it with a 3-D glue dot and added a pearl. I finished with a Peel-Off sticker sentiment & snowflake on another scrap of the over-sprayed paper."
So break out the cardstock ... whole sheets or scraps ... and get festive. We can't wait to see what you create. Cards need to be linked-up by no later than 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, July 17th ... use keyword JB:13:14 for our Flickr Group and other galleries.
Beautiful cards for inspiration Lauren and Stef, and I love the challenge, cant wait to play along!
Who needs patterned papers if you can achieve these stunning results without them?! Cannot wait to play along (time permitting...). I think I have an idea on how to get started...
Gorgeous cards Lauren & Stef! I think I may have to challenge myself to try this. :o)
