Didn’t have very high hopes for this week’s sketch… I was busy prepping for a couple craft shows and really had very little time to create. BUT… I did make a commitment and knew last week that I’d better “get it done”…
Gazing at the sketch, I looked at my scrap pile… and there it was… a couple pretty vellum card stock rosettes ‘leftover’ from one of my Super Saturday tutorial projects. Perfect!!
Here’s this week’s Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge:LOL… you can probably guess what I did with the rosettes! Here’s today’s SQSC15 Challenge card:The Whisper White Card Stock background was embossed with the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. LOL.. I love my Big Shot, and use it every day! My electronic die cutting machine doesn’t get a lot of face time, you know what I mean? I simply don’t have the patience to wait for it to cut single or multiple designs!Isn’t that antique brad perfect?? Who says you can’t mix gold and silver? LOL… my DD used to be a real stickler on that one, but a year of study in Europe and she’s finally over that ‘rule’.LOVE the silver glimmer paper, don’t you? Doesn’t this look like Christmas… or the first winter snowstorm? Do you have visions of a glistening blanket of snow, peaceful, clean and quiet? Most of the time, I use “Merry Christmas” as my card sentiment… especially after that large discount store “happy holidays” debacle a couple years ago… wasn’t that wally world?
This card just felt like a solemn Christmas Snow… and Peace On Earth embossed with Pewter onto vellum card stock seemed quite appropriate. Agree?Other little touches and ‘elements’ which make this card sparkle… a pretty Whisper White Organza Double Loop Bow tied on my fingers and attached with mini glue dots, chunky silver glass glitter, Silver Glimmer Paper and Brushed Silver Card Stock…. put it all together and what do you get?
Today is the last day of the Online Extravaganza at my Online Stampin’ Up! Store… If you haven’t taken advantage of all the wonderfully discounted exclusive products, better do so soon… time is running out!
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a new project with a lot of bling too… I’m really excited to share it with you, and think you will love it too.
Hope you’ll stop back by to say hi!
Hugs and a peaceful Christmas Season to all of you!
