We had our Holiday party at work yesterday and in the middle of it there was fire drill! Ha ha! They also did karaoke and some people were really good and others… well we won’t say anything else! It is supposed to rain here heavy until Christmas. At least we won’t have a white one. I’ll take the rain over snow any day. Last night was pretty uneventful. I got a few cards done and then made a list of what I have left to do. The Christmas cards didn’t get done. Sometimes we have to accept that there is just not enough time in the day to accomplish everything that we want to. That is something I’m going to work on in the New Year. Between work, crafting, blogging and friends sometimes I just can’t get to everything and that’s just the way it goes right?! I’m going to do my Christmas shopping tonight! Wish me luck! LOL!
It’s Tuesday so here are the Weekly Deals from Stampin’ Up!:
My card that I have for you today is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…
Super simple so I wanted to keep my card the same. I saw a technique last year where Debbie Hughes used embossing paste with embossing powder to get this really cool molten look so I finally decided to give it a try! The base for today’s card is Whisper White Card Stock. I adhered a piece of Smoky Slate to the base and a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper goes across the middle. My snowflake is actually the negative of the Simon Says Stamp Kate Snowflake Die. I cut it out of a piece of 110lb card stock and used it as a stencil with some Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste. Some Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder is sprinkled on while it is still wet and the I heat embossed it and it bubbled! I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut it out and backed it with some Brushed Silver Metallic Card Stock punched out with the 2″ Circle Punch. My greeting is from the Merry Everything Stamp Set and is also heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and backed with some more Brushed Silver Metallic. Stampin’ Dimensionals hold both the snowflake and the greeting to the card. Like I said very simple, just white and silver. I love the way the snowflake turned out, a very clever technique! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Thanks very much for coming by and I hope that you are all a lot further along in your Christmas shopping than I am! Have a wonderful Tuesday! 🙂
