It's Wonderful!

If you're a "glass half-full" thinker, then life itself is often 'wonderful' for sure.  But the title of today's post actually comes more from the sentiment on my card.  It's just one of my favorites from the "Perfect Pennants" stamp set.

This wintery cool card features several fun items from the current "Occasions" catalog, including Silver Encore Metallic ink, Perfect Pennants stamp set, Silver Foil sheet, Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, and Silver 1/8" ribbon.  I adore the fun 'splatters' on the sentiment from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, and the Labels Collection framelits are among my go-to choices when I'm looking for something beyond more traditional shapes.  Lastly, you'll spot the use of our Scallop Border punch, Northern Flurry embossing folder, and those fabulously sparkly Stampin' Up! Rhinestones!  Cardstocks are Soft Sky, Whisper White, and Brushed Silver.

My design was prompted by another Creative Crew challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.  We would love to have you join in with the challenge by uploading your challenge entry with the keyword  CCREW0114DF.  This challenge was to use the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.  You don't have to be a demo to play along at all.  C'mon & play along!

I hope I've inspired your creativity in some way today!

You Make Me Happy!

Welcome to a brand spankin' new week, everyone!

Brrrrrrrrrrrr!  Another wintery blast of freezing rain & sleet moved in here on Sunday ... so I think I'll just plan some stamping and a class or two.  Neither of those require bundling up and schlepping around on slippery-slidey things.   In light of that freezy stuff that's working its way around the USA again this week, I'm sharing a rather "frosty" creation from one of the Creative Crew challenges! 

This all started off with the 'Northern Flurry' embossing folder and Pool Party cardstock.  For the added icy look, I used the Embossed Embossing technique, along with Heat & Stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  The sentiment is from the 2014 Sale-A-Bration set, 'See Ya Later'.  It's layered atop a vellum snowflake from the 'Festive Flurry' framelits collection.  More Dazzling Diamonds for the snowflake edges and a few sparkly rhinestones to make someone happy when skies are gray!
I created an "Embossed Embossing" technique video a few years ago over at Splitcoaststampers just in case you would like to create some dazzle of your own.  I hope you enjoy this wintery project as well as the technique process!
