Let It Snow!

I am leaving bright and early tomorrow morning for San Diego - courtesy of Stampin' Up!  I earned the Weekend Get-a-Way so I am treating my husband to a well deserved trip.  I'll post when I get back but wanted to leave you with a project that will be part of a Christmas Card Class next week. 

It is made with the Label Thinlit and Whisper White card stock. I embossed the smallest snowflake from Festive Flurry with Heat & Stick powder, and Gold Stampin' Glitter on one of the Gold Foil Sheets and die cut it with the Festive Flurry Framelit.  I embossed the right edge of the card with a Delicate Designs folder.  I finished it off with some Silver 1/8" Ribbon and a Frosted Finishes Embellishment.

Rays of Sunshine

One of my fellow demonstrators, Mary Ellen Stites, posted this technique so I thought I would give it a go.  Very fun!  Punch out a circle from a post-it note (be sure to catch the sticky part!), and stick it on your card stock.  Mark the center with dot as this will be your focal point.  Using daubers and ink, line up a piece of cardboard with the focal point and move out toward the edge of the card stock to create the sun's rays.  Fill in the sky and the sun as desired and add any other elements you wish.  I used Lovely as a Tree and the greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Colors are Crisp Cantaloupe, Old Olive, Early Espresso and So Saffron.

My New Favorite Stamp... least for now my new favorite stamp is Gorgeous Grunge.  This stamp set is very versatile!  Our oldest grandson turned 17 last week and he is hoping to attend the University of Michigan when he graduates from High School.  So it was pretty easy choosing colors - Crushed Curry and Night of Navy close to Maize and Blue!  The Happy Birthday greeting is from You're Amazing stamp set.
