Welcome to my world on a quiet Sunday morning. Hope that the weather where you are is not dreadful, and that you have electrical power. I'm back with another scheduled post.
Here's a card that was fairly easy to make. The idea started with the stamp.
- Inkadinkadoo ornament stamp, inked with Versamark, heat embossed with Ranger Queen's Gold (still my favorite of all the gold EP). Die cut with a S/B circle. This is my 3rd attempt on this embossing, as I kept getting specks of powder that wouldn't brush off without damaging the image (you'll know what I mean if this has ever happened with you). I'd use a brush to flick off the excess, I had used the Embossing Buddy, blown & huffed, then would think "Oh, this will be ok". Used the heat gun, and no, after looking at the result, I'd cut & stamp another one. The c/s is a pearlized white c/s snippet.
- Card base is also pearlized white but a different shade from the ornament snippet. I inked the Sizzix embossing folder with Delicata Gold before running through the Big Shot. Sorry I can't provide the specific name on this folder. When I removed the folders from the packing materials, I embossed a piece of GP white C/S for each folder, writing the mfgr & name on the folder. This piece of C/S is somewhere in the mess on my desk or at the cutting area. The Sizzix name is on the plastic though. I may have to take a black marker & write down all the names on the plastic instead of my white samples that are meant to stay inside the plastic. I keep all the folders in a storage box, trying to have these arranged sort of by subject. I keep the holiday folders in a separate box so I don't have to hunt through these when I want a folder. I need to devise a more accurate filing system too, rather than florals, leaves-trees, etc.
- gold gauze ribbon and a Britannia die sentiment snippet (Joanna Sheen) - Thanks Mrs. A for telling me where to find these dies!
Have a happy Sunday, and I hope you're doing something relaxing & enjoyable today. Hugs from me to you, and come again soon.
Edit: This was a scheduled post, but now that's it has gone 'live', I'm going to zip right over to the Pixie's Crafty Snippet Playground for week 102 to link up. I really missed playing in the 100th week anniversary so I want to try to make up for that. My snippets were the ornament paper & the gold sentiment which came from the Mbossibility Reindeer card on the previous post. So off I go, and my plan for today, will be visiting some lovely blogs and trying to get a couple more cards done. Yesterday we did some much needed house chores. Still haven't done any Christmas decorating to speak of. We'll be away, but I do like to have some festive things about, especially our nativity, which is as old as our daughter. Hugs again.
