So while I've been cocooning here at home with the family, I've neglected my blog. I've actually been stamping a lot--getting those Christmas cards finished and sent out. I made about 90 this year. I always think I'm going to start earlier, but it never works out. I figure as long as they're in the mail before Christmas, they're on time, right?
I'm hoping to turn over a new leaf and blog more regularly this new year. Not only is it almost 2018--but it's almost time for Stampin' Up's Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration (starts January 3, 2018)! I have so many fun things to show you and so many fun products in those catalogs to play with!! But we still have a few days left of the Holiday catalog, so I have one last card using product from that catalog that you can still purchase (through January 2, 2018)--and some product that will be carrying over and some from the annual catalog. This card is a three-fer!
I started by stamping three snowflakes from the "Snowflakes Sentiments" stamp set (carrying over) in Versamark onto a 3-3/4" by 5" Whisper White panel. I added some Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder (annual catalog) and set it with my heat tool. I also stamped a sentiment from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set (annual catalog) in Versamark and embossed it with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder. I adhered a 2" by 3-3/4" strip of Year of Cheer Specialty Series Paper (retiring) and a length of Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon (annual catalog) before adhering it to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Silver Foil panel. I adhered this panel to a Thick Whisper White Card Stock (annual catalog) card base, cut lengthwise, using Stampin' Dimensionals (annual catalog).
I love how sparkly this card is and I think it's a great blend of Winter and "fireworks"--perfect for New Year's wishes.
