Spotlight Techinque

It's time to get back to work and design more cards for the upcoming classes!! :-)

I made a card today with a Spotlight Technique.. Can you believe I have never done of these before? Weird.. but true.. I LOVE the effect of this technique though..

This is one of the cards for my upcoming "It's not all Black and White" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile in Sunnyvale, CA. We will make three cards in this class. All of the cards will feature heat embossing and watercoloring along with other techniques. This class is scheduled for:

Tuesday, February 9th, 12 pm to 3pm
Sunday, Feburary 14th, 12 pm to 3 pm

Please bring your Cuttlebug (if you own one), your favorite dry adhesive and foam tape (pop-up dots) to the class. All other supplies will be provided.

$30, 10 participants max.

Class Kits are available until February 14th, $35 each.

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up for the class and/or purchase your kit/s.

This card measures 6" x 6".

It is hard to see on the photos, but I used Cuttlebug Floral Screen embossing folder on the bottom of the card. The stamp is from Magenta, it does not have the name on the stamp but the number 40300.O . Circles were cut with Nestabilites. I used textured cardstock for image and the "spotlight" circle, the image was heat embossed in black and colored with Pearlacent watercolors. EK Success corner punch. Both the lace and the ribbon are from Webster Pages.. By the way, we had ordered some absolutely gorgeous new Webster Pages paper from CHA!!!

All the supplies used to design this card are available for purchase at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. If you do not live in the area, you can call the store at 408-736-9151 to place your order over the phone.

Hola Irena,

¡Felicidades! I just saw one of your cards in the Card Maker magazine that arrived today. I was pretty sure it was yours even before I checked for the card designer's name.

This card and technique are quite beautiful too.

Abrazos, Carol F
