Fall and Xmas Make and Take cards we made

 Hello Stampers!
It's a dreary day here and I can't wait to go downstairs to my craft area and work on Christmas cards!  But first, I wanted to share with you 3 of the 4 cards we made at my Make & Take class last weekend!
This one above with the leaf, uses the new Co'ordinations paper.  Do you see that when we dry embossed with the wood grain folder, that a lighter color emerged?  There is a coating of something on the cardstock that creates this look.  You can sand it also, but we didn't need to here.  The leaf is colored using daubers and swiping the color across.
This angel card really pops when you run it thru a dry emboss folder after heat embossing it!
 This fall cards uses the "Joseph's Coat" technique on watercolor paper.  Using your aqua painter, randomly paint your colors on the watercolor paper (see below).  Then you clear emboss the leaves on top of it.  (it is kinda hard to see what you are doing with the clear emboss).  Then you roll dark ink with a brayer over the whole piece.  The fun part is wiping the ink off of the leaves and the color pops through!
This is a fun technique to use with glossy paper, also.

I'm going to go stamp, now!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
