CHA Sneak Peek #3

We're on Day 3 of our Sneak Peeks, Are you feeling Inspired yet?  Well, we're not done Yet!  There are still tons of new Stencils to show you!  Here's a sample of my Second (almost first) Favorite New Stencil Design.  Some of the other Design Team Members have done some beautiful cards with it, so be sure to check out their blogs as well, and look back through the past 2 days!

This is the Tall Poppy LL3023, isn't she lovely?  I Machine Embossed her on Gold Painted Craft Foil, and then sanded the top layer of paint off to show the Silver base underneath.  I then mounted it on Brown Cardstock and Metallic Red Paper and attached it to an Acrylic Card Base.  I tried to keep the colours in the spirit of the many Chinese New Year Celebrations going on around town this week!
Here's a close-up of the Sanding, I just tried to get the edges of the embossed image, as I liked the contrast between the Gold and the Silver (Yes, Gold and Silver can be seen out together!)

Don't forget to leave a comment so you can be entered in my Sneak Peek Draw to win 2 Stencils of your choice!

Until Tomorrow, when we reveal even more superb samples...
Emboss 'til you drop,
Sand yourself silly,
and Gung Hay Fat Choy!  (depending on where you look on the internet, this means "May you become Prosperous" not "Happy New Year" as I have assumed for the 16 years I have lived in B.C.!)


  1. I like the swirls in this flower stencil, as well as the size because its appropriate for the average card. I also like the sanding technique, it's something I'd never heard or thought of before.

  2. Excellant, I should bring in my poodle stencil and get some ideas from you.

  3. Awesome job Jessie!!! Your card is fantastic!! Thanks for the inspiration!! :):)

  4. The poppy is beautiful with the metal embossing! Love the colors you selected, and the textures of the papers.

  5. Hi Jessie:
    This is my favourite! Of course, I love stencilling on metal, and the sanding is
    most effective...and the colours so appropriate
    for Chinese New Year.

  8. Oh so lovely Jessie! I love the sanded metal and that stencil is gorgeous.

  9. So pretty -- this new stencil is top of my wislist. I also love the look of gold/silver metal.
