French Foliage and Glossy Accent Love

I received my goodies from the new SU Holiday Mini...and I'm in love with them already!  For these two cards, I used the French Foliage stamps and lots of glossy accents.  Jennifer McGuire had a tutorial on using glossy accents for masking and it inspired me to give in a try....also to be patient as the glossy accents take a bit to dry.

Here is my first creation.  All kinds of SU products for this week's Stampin' 411 challenge.
Ingredients:  SU French Foliage Stamps; Crumb Cake, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler and Autumn Spice Paper; SU Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and More Mustard Ink, Glossy Accents, SU Buttons, PTI Twine; PTI Damask Designs Stamps

And my second creation...for the Clean & Simple sketch challenge.
Ingredients:  SU Crumb Cake Paper; Ranger Distress Inks; SU French Foliage Stamps; PTI Damask Design Stamps; Gloss Accents

If you have a long weekend, I hope you're enjoying it.  We've had a very relaxing day on Saturday and have a day full of football and concession stand volunteering for Jonathon's team today!

  1. The hardest thing working with Glossy Accents is having the patience to let it dry! I still can't resist touching it's gloopy goodness too soon and wrecking a project LOL!
    Loving both cards, but especially love the CAS nature of the second!
