Split Neg Thankyous

So here is my official first card of the new year. My creative juices feel like they are definitely starting to flow in this lovely yellow room I have now. These cards I made for a swap on my friend Joani's newly moved group She moved us from MSN as they are closing their groups down. We are still feeling our way around the new site but I am so happy to be swapping again.

I cased this from a card I made at a class last year. My friend Sarah is my wonderful teacher. I think she may have gotten her inspiration from SCS. I just love this technique. It is one of my favorites.

As you can see the technique I just love is Split Negative. I used the Stampin Up set Baroque Motifs. The sentiment is from a Stampendous set I have yet to fully utilise. Cardstock is of course black and white with some Brilliant Blue to make it pop. I finally used my make your own brad set too which feels like it has been sitting in my cupboard for the longest time. New years resolution #1 Start making the most of the things you already have and resist buying more. (the resistance part isn't going so well as I just got myself a bunch more SU goodies today but at least I am sticking to the first part).
Other items used:
Black and white embossing powder
Heat gun
Brilliant blue ink
