Another chilly day here, it did get sunny towards the afternoon though and that did warm it up a bit. Another busy day at the office as always. After dinner I helped my friend Isabella with her iPhone. Sometimes technology can be a little temperamental! Then it was off to the Stampin’ Galley for some crafty time. I had to make two cards since I have the concert tonight and didn’t think that making one when I got home at midnight would be a good idea. I used my trip into Manhattan for my inspiration for both of them. I’m so excited for the concert tonight!! I listen to Sam’s album all the time and I never get tired of it. If you have never heard him here is his cover of Whitney Houston’s How Will I Know. The way he sings the songs completely changes the feel of it. I LOVE IT!!
The video has over nine million views!! WOW!
Ok, enough about Sam now on to today’s card which is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…
I wanted to play around with some new goodies and use a die that I picked up a while ago. The base of today’s card is Whisper White Card Stock. I used a piece of Basic Black to cover the entire front, I like to do that because it saves a little on paper and then you don’t have to line the card. My background is a piece of the really cool Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Night of Navy to color the paper. The stars are embossed so when you wipe it off they stay white. A strip of Silver Foil Sheet is embossed with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and goes down the left side. On top of that is a piece of Vellum that I heat embossed the stars from the Project Life Point and Click Photopolymer Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The cityscape is a piece of Basic Black and I used a Mama Elephant die to cut it out. It’s adhered to a piece of Smoky Slate with 2-Way Glue and then to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Up in the top right is my greeting that is from the Honeycomb Hello Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. I love that Designer Series Paper and the cityscape is just really cool! It works for a night out in Manhattan don’t you think?! I really hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. It’s always nice to have you stop by and I hope to have lots of pictures from tonight’s concert for you tomorrow! Have a fantastic Thursday! 🙂
