Sharing two cards with you today - here's my first card, which is for this week's Runway Inspired Challenge...

I'm so in love with the shoes - but who could see them, with that oversized out when you put your purse down, it may roll away...hehehe.
Stamps:  Paper Smooches (Swanky Snowdudes, My Peeps)

The next card is for Day 7 of Holiday Card Workshop.  I tried to use Jennifer McGuire's technique of Inner Masking, but I just couldn't get it clean enough...tried several times, then gave up.  I truly think in order to get a clean embossed image, I'll need Eclipse Masking Sheets, post-its just ain't doing it.  So, I decided to follow Kristina Werner's lead, and play with my Distress Inks, and work with a "reverse" stamp...
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Holiday Lights, Snowflake Serenade)
I stamped the image with Tuxedo Black, then used Ranger Peeled Paint and Broken China Distress Inks.  I then stamped snowflakes over it in white, and heat embossed it with a kaleidoscope embossing powder, which gave it a glittery shimmer.

Live well,


  1. the first one...cute no doubt, nothing is cuter than a penguin, but the second one is special to me because it is so striking. and NOTHING does it for me more than glitter ;)

  2. Trina, both cards are lovely! The first is so cute! The second so elegant. Beautiful work!

  3. Beautiful cards. Gotta love the penguin! And of course the Merry Christmas with the shimmer is so festive. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love how you incorporated the design elements from the photo into your card. Thanks for joining us on the Runway!
