I knew from the Catalog kick off that I would heat emboss the Big on You stamp set in gold and on vellum, and lo and behold when I actually looked at the new catalog, the Stampin' Up artists beat me to it.  It's ok, we are good like that!  I still was able to put my own twist on it,

Blushing bride, crumb cake, vellum, and gold is a very beautiful combo, it's just hard to photograph well!


I wanted to add on to the main sentiment, and the Darling stamp from the Hello Darling stamp set seemed to be a perfect fit.  My stampin write markers add a soft look to the sentiment.


I thought some homemade arrows would work great for the flags on the sketch.  I used the petite pennants builder punch to make both parts of the arrows, and glued them to some tiny strips of crumb cake.  I couldn't pass up adding more gold, y'all know me!

Let's not overlook the sweet venetian crochet trim, I just love that ribbon.


I am pretty sure this card is going to my husband, which is nice having his card already made, and a month early, you can't beat that.

Sending Good Thoughts

 

Hello there!  Happy New Year to y'all!  I am sending good thoughts your way today to all of my loyal blog readers.  I am hoping that 2015 will be a great year for everyone.  To start this year off on a creative step we have a fun color challenge at the Pals Paper Arts challenge blog.  Check out the colors, create something fun and link it up for your change to be a PALS pick.


When I usually get the color challenges, I always head to my DSP to see what can be used.  I love the Maritime DSP and found a piece that had just night of navy.  The lady popped right out at me so I made sure to trim my background so she would be placed just right.


I love the impact that heat embossing provides, and embossed in silver embossing powder, it is crisp and clean, and oh so pretty. Do you spy the embossing on the wisteria wonder flag?  Yes, silver again.

The silver and gold foil paper that we have embosses wonderfully with the embossing folders, I am always so pleasantly surprised to see how beautiful it transforms.

I grabbed a piece of the white and silver bakers twine from the November MPP kit, I love it and found that I just want to hoard it.




I found that this color combo could really be used for anyone, the wisteria wonder is a grayish color, not to girly, and the silver is just fabulous.



We had a great Christmas, I was finally on the mend after being sick for almost THREE weeks.  It surely was hard being sick during the holidays, but Chris and Mackie really helped out.  I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas filled with love and family.

Don't forget that Stampin' Up! bonus time is just right around the corner.  Sale-A-Bration starts January 6th.  What is bonus time you ask?  When you order $50 in fun stamping supplies, you can choose a fabulous item out of the SAB catalog FREE!  How fun is that?!  Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
