SIP Challenge 131 – Emboss It!

Hey there, remember me?! I have been MIA for a little bit over the Holidays. I just lost my Mojo and didn’t make a card for about two weeks!! That’s the longest I think I have ever gone. Plus I think that I just needed a break after five years of almost daily posts. Hopefully I will get back into the swing of things! Oh, Happy New Year!! Can’t believe that 2017 is done! I did have a good year and a wonderful time over the Holidays! I hope that all of you are doing great and that your year is off to a great start! πŸ˜€

It’s Tuesday and time for the first Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge of 2018…

I used a new to me stamp set that I have wanted for a while, it was a little prezzie from Jim! To start I heat embossed that gorgeous leaf from the Neat & Tangled Oak Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Canson 140lb Watercolor Card. I colored it in using a Light Green Zig Clean Color Brush Pen and a Waterbrush. It’s cut out with the Coordinating Die. Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I adhered a piece of Solar White 80lb that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Wave 3D Embossing Folder. My greeting is from the same set and is also heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold onto a strip of Solar White 80lb. I added the leaf and greeting with 3M Foam Tape and a sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh Gold and Sparkling Clear Sequins completes the card. I do love that leaf especially watercolored! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! There is more inspiration over on the BLOG so check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you so much for coming back after my little hiatus! Have a terrific Tuesday! πŸ™‚

  1. Whoa! I was looking for you and hoping all was O.K. with you and your family. I do follow your blog daily and enjoy your personal notes. I am happy you had an enjoyable holiday. Happy and Healthy and Blessed 2018 to you too!

  2. I was so worried about you! Glad you are ok andgot a much deserved rest! I hope you have a wonderful 2018!

  3. You were missed, my friend, but I’m happy you took a well-deserved break and had a wonderful holiday. The card with the beautiful leaf makes me think of spring with the bright green. We could use a little spring about now with the extended cold period we’re having. Being retired is wonderful this time of year when we have nothing on the calendar and can stay cozy inside. Take care. Happy New Year!

  4. We’re happy to hear from you Justin. You were missed!! I do read your blog each morning while sipping my coffee. Everyone needs a break from time to time. I’m happy to hear all family members are well too. Wishing you and your family a very happy and healthy 2018.

  5. From the looks of your card, your mojo is right where it should be! You deserved a break over the holidays, and should take one periodically! Have a happy and healthy 2018!
