Star of Wonder

Happy Tuesday Friends,

I'm joining in the Mojo Monday Challenge
today.  This sketch was just calling me!

And here's my take...

I brought out some Christmas fun
I love the gray/silver and deep red
colors together against the white.
That gorgeous background snow scene
is heat embossed on vellum paper with silver.
I made my own tag and die cut a 
Sweet 'n Sassy banner for the top. 
 I think it looks quite jaunty
on an angle like that :)
Check out all my supplies below.

I've entered my card into a few 
other challenges as well:

Tag You're It! (photo challenge)
I was inspired by the red and white colors, embossing,
Christmas theme and snowflakes.

A Snowflakes Promise - #8 Anything Goes with a
Twist of Winter or Christmas
Sparkle N Sprinkle - Anything Goes with Glitter,
Embossing Powder, or Flocking

I'm off for a run on this warm Fall day.
A treat for us living in Wisconsin!

Have a fabulous day!

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps October Release!

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
October Release!

I am showcasing a couple of the new sets!
First up is Winter Blessings.  Isn't that snowy
background simply gorgeous?  I added some Liquid Pearls 
for even more sparkle.  I love that the background is
doing all the talking, and bonus... it comes together
quickly and totally mailable!

I've entered my Winter Blessings card into the
Addicted to CAS Challenge - #74 sparkle.

Next up another great stamp set for backgrounds
called Grunge Elements 2.  I paired it with
a previously released set Winter Silhouettes.
I colored my stamps with distress markers
and then spritzed the stamps with just 
one squirt of water and stamped. 
 I love the surprise of seeing how it comes out!
Different each time.
To finish it off I heat embossed the antlers in gold
and sprinkled some gold confetti around the card.

My card design was inspired by
CAS(E) This Sketch #145

You can find a list of the new and
previously released sets I used below.
Just click to shop!
There are several other stamp AND die
sets being released so be sure to
