Hey there! How was your Monday? Mine was not too bad. I got to do my 2 1/2 hour monthly errand yesterday, you know how I love that! I had a Stamp-A-Stack at Sandy’s house last night. I love to do them, gets 16 of my Christmas cards made! Plus we always have a good laugh! It’s getting chillier here and darker earlier, not my favorite time of year. I heard from some of you that you got some snow over the weekend! Yikes! It’s way too early for that!! If you could keep that sort of weather to the north or west of me I would greatly appreciate it!
It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for this week’s deals from Stampin’ Up!
Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for our “A Thanks for Anything” challenge. I send out a lot of Thank You’s and sometimes you need a card that is easy to make but still has some impact to it, that’s what I tried to accomplish with my card. The base is Basic Black Card Stock. I stamped the large Thank You from the Another Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and then offset the image slightly and heat embossed it in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Whisper White. The sequins are from the Hello Darling Stamp Set and are also heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I backed the panel with a piece of Brushed Gold Card Stock before adhering it to the base. I like the shadow effect and the gold and black together. I hope that you agree that I accomplished my goal for a simple card with some impact! Take a few minutes to stop by the SUO Challenges blog and see what the other design team members have done. Thanks for visiting with me and enjoy your Tuesday! 🙂
