Feeling Sentimental........

This weeks challenge with Sunny Challenges and Creations was to use some of those lovely Sale-a-bration items that we have received for free when placing an order of $100.00. You have to admit that it is not hard to spend $100 with so many wonderful things available to us in the Holiday Mini or The 2012-2013 Catalogue. I decided to make some coasters using the three picture images from the Feeling Sentimental set, and to do this I used the Scallop Circle Die and some backing cardboard from the Silver Glitter Card stock and run it through the Big Shot. I did the same with the First Edition Specialty Paper and some cork sheet that I had on hand here. I Stamped the images using Early Espresso on the Specialty paper and adhered it to the scallop shape of the cardboard, cork backing and the Limited Edition SP using my Anywhere Glue Stick (love that stuff). I then sponged the image and the SP with Soft Suede to give it an Antique look. To finish it off I covered the top with Crystal Effects and let dry. I love the way they have turned out and think I may be making more of these as small gifts. My next project was to make a card using the telephone box. Once again I used the Limited Edition SP on the bottom section of the card and Whisper White which I had embossed using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder, on top of a Real Red Base. I added a strip of Real Red which I had punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border. The phone box image was stamped using Real Red once again on Whisper White and matted onto a piece of Basic Black card stock. Very simple and very effective. Till next time, take care.


  1. I love both of these but the coasters are truly stunning.

  2. Love both the card & your coasters Gwen. Don't you love red & black together? So very elegant. Love the embossing along the top. Would you believe I am yet to ink this set.....
