Yesterday was a rainy day here. I came home from work and had dinner and then Heather came by and helped me clean my apartment! It has never been so clean! She is a cleaning machine! Everything in the bathroom and kitchen sparkles! LOL! It needed it bad and now it will be a lot easier to keep up with! We ran out to Target to pick up some odds and ends. I even got to make some cards last night too! What a productive evening, all after work! My brother, Erika and Daniel went to LA yesterday. It was Daniel’s first flight and they said that he was great! He even slept for two hours on the plane! He’s such a good little boy! There is even a picture of him at the airport looking like a seasoned traveller!
He looks like he’s saying come on guys, lets go! I love his little jet plane bag too!
Well, it’s Wednesday and that means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…
I wanted to try some foiling again and Jennifer McGuire came up with a new way to do it using embossing powder! My card today is 5″ x 5″, a size that I never make! The base is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is Garden Green. On top is a piece of the Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. I adhered a piece of Gold 1/8″ Ribbon with some Pistachio Pudding behind it around the back with some Sticky Strip and then adhered it to the card. My main panel is a piece of Whisper White backed with some Calypso Coral. I heat embossed the image from the I Like You Host Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then ran it through my laminator with some Gold Deco Foil. The greeting is from the Cycle Celebration Stamp Set, it’s also foiled and punched out with the Decorative Label Punch along with the flowers that are from the Something to Say Stamp Set and punched out with the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. The main panel is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals, along with the greeting and the flowers are adhered with Glue Dots. A Subtles Designer Button is adhered with a Glue Dot and then some Simon Says Stamp Sparkle and Shine Sequins are adhered in the lower right corner. I absolutely love the gold foil with the heat embossing! It’s so smooth and shiny, you can see it a little better in the second picture! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge! Stop by the blog and see the rest of the design team’s projects and enter one of yours in the gallery! I hope that you are inspired to try some foiling on your projects and I thank you so much for coming by to see me! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
