Stretch Your Stamps 2 Day 11
Today is our final day for Stretch Your Stamps 2. We've had 11 days of awesome lessons. Looking back over the cards I've created during the class, I realize I've learned a lot. These classes can't be beat! My thanks to a dear, dear friend who signed me up and gifted me this class. I am so thankful for her giving spirit! She's truly made a difference in my life.
This card was created using layered embossing--I actually heat embossed the center piece twice, once for the background and again for the sentiment. Slippery stuff! It took me three tries to get this one right! The second layer to the center piece was heat embossed, too. You can't tell it from the picture, but the background to the top piece was heat embossed in silver. It looks more like gold here for some reason. Finally, I embossed the background with an embossing folder from Sizzix. The sentiment is a bonus stamp from Stephanie Barnard's Stamps of Life. She's great at adding those to your Club stamps every now and then.
You folks have been tremendous in following me throughout this class, and I greatly appreciate that. Your dedication to my site means a lot to me. Your comments and visits keep me moving forward on this incredible creative journey, and I hope to see you again real soon ~
