Abstract Embossing meets Glimmering Waves

Call me a goober, but one of the things I love about having a group of stamps on a sheet is mixing and matching them -- and ALSO seeing how different I can make them look from each other. Today I am doing just that. You see, this card was made from the same sheet of rubber as the card in the Giveaway Post, below, from I Brake for Stamps. Where that one is cute, this one is elegant. Same stamp sheet, different look and feel. Cool, huh? Okay, I know... I'm a goober.

For this card I used two techniques. First I stamped "NOEL" in VersaMark, then used the Abstract Embossing Technique from the April 2005 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter to add the blaze of color. I colored the inside of the letters with a black marker, then cut and mounted them, then placed them on a background of Glimmering Waves (April 2008 TJNL), where I also used the Abstract Embossing Technique. The background was so pretty, I really had a hard time covering it up! Click on the image if you want to see it up-close. And if you have not done so already enter the giveaway (but not on THIS post, enter it on yesterday's post, here!
