So remember yesterday when I said that it was raining, well I was wrong, it was freezing rain! I had to let my car warm up for 20 minutes before I could chisel the ice off of the windows and then skate to work! Who wants to find me a job somewhere warm? I really am over this whole Winter thing. I’m not meant to be cold! LOL! Yesterday was pretty uneventful. I came home after work and had dinner and then puttered around in the Stampin’ Galley for bit and then I decided that I would relax for a while. I really do need to do nothing more often. It was nice to just be for a little bit last night.
Before we get to today’s post here are the weekly deals for this week:
Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for our shaped cards challenge. I don’t really ever make a shaped card, I don’t know why either, it was fun! I went with a heart shape, you know… for Valentine’s! I also haven’t made a shaker in a while. The base of my card is Real Red Card Stock. I used the Hearts Collection Framelits to cut out all of the hearts. The card itself is two hearts that I scored the top left on the back one and used some Fast Fuse to adhere them together. For the shaker part I cut out the background from a piece of the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack. The front is two that I taped together and cut out from a piece of Basic Black. I also cut out a piece of Fun Foam instead of using foam tape or Stampin’ Dimensionals. A piece of Window Sheet is also cut out and some sequins are sprinkled inside and the shaker assembled with Multi-Purpose Glue. The greeting is from the Snuggles and Smooches Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Vellum and cut out with my Paper Snips. Using the Fun Foam for the shaker was great, I got the idea from Jennifer McGuire. I was missing the shaker cards and hope that you were too! So there is my shaped card for the SUO Challenges blog.
