Oh... My... Blog!

Here is the breaking news... I have the privilege to be the guest designer this month on The Friday Mashup blog! WHAT??!?! I know! So cool and such an honor!

Here is the challenge:
1. Make a project featuring "Heat Embossing."
2. Or make a "Thank You (Grateful)" project
3. Or "Mash it up" and create a "Thank You project using heat embossing."

My first thought was Thanksgiving. I mean, it's a holiday all about how thankful we are for what we have (really... it's all in the name... Thanks-giving).

And this is the first card I came up with... It starts off with a base of Soft Suede. I have a thin strip of So Saffron that has a ribbon punched piece of Cajun Craze under that, just barely poking out.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :Make a project featuring "Heat Embossing".Or Make a "Thank You (Grateful)" project.

Then I used some Chocolate Chip ink on my new new stamp, Hand-Penned Holidays. Next I used Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Red Ridinghood scraps. I stamped the leaf from the Day of Gratitude set in the same colored inks. Then I used my versamark ink pad and just inked up the whole leaf and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Next, I cut each one out. The pumpkin one is popped up using stampin' dimensionals and I tied a little bow around the stem of the leaf using the linen thread.

Thanks for looking...

Great card, love the leaves.

I know we have Thanksgiving, but my point with the challenge was to recognize those that make a difference in our lives EVERY day, not just on one special day to say thanks :)

Glad to have you onboard as a guest designer!
