Stenciled Snowflakes Tag and Card

I got a new snowflake stencil from Gina K. Designs last week, and I combined it with a GKD wreath maker template that had smaller snowflakes. After the stencil inks were dry, I stamped Hero Arts snowflakes in VersaMark and covered with good old Iridescent Ice embossing powder from Stampin’ Up. I finished with a sentiment and a few sequins.

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Soft Sky (retired), inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Broken China Mermaid Lagoon, Tumbled Glass, VersaMark, dies – My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), Taylored Expressions (tag), sequins – Pretty Pink Posh, embossing powders – Stampendous Detail clear, Stampin’ Up! Iridescent Ice, ribbon – Ellen Hutson (gift with order).

Quick Feel Better Note Card

Hey, I’m still here.

Trying to get the MOJO restarted. Ugh, it went to sleep!

Thanksgiving week was really busy, plus my clothes dryer died the week before, and I didn’t get a new machine until last Monday. (I am incomplete without laundry detergent and working laundry machines!) And I slept badly all week.

Cyber Monday was hectic (my husband kept asking me to order items in his shopping carts for him – LOL! I’m serious!), and Tuesday I got bogged down in my in-law paperwork for a bit.

I need to get moving on my own Christmas cards – hopefully I will have something to post in that direction for tomorrow.

If I don’t get sidetracked by the impeachment proceedings. Wherever you stand on the subject, it is HISTORIC.

Supplies:  Stamp – Lawn Fawn, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – Stampin’ Up!.

Kissing Bears Card (featuring OLD mulberry paper!)

This image and sentiment were part of my Sunday morning scavenge.

I also unearthed a scrap of pale blue mulberry paper that must be 15 years old.

Here we are, the Friday before Thanksgiving, and I still have so much to do! (and WHY did my dryer pick this week to stop working???) I don’t think I will be blogging next week – I’ll be back the first Monday in December.

If you celebrate, have a great Thanksgiving.
