Friends With Toys!

I had a small group of gals over today stamping and they brought some stamps with them. I LOVE playing with new "stuff!" One brought with her the Stampin' Up! "Gifts of Christmas" set. I loved this set since the first day I laid my eyes on it but I didn't buy it. I had others that I wanted instead. Today Kay brought hers with her and I played with it. First I tried the VersaMark and chalks like the one in the Stampin' Up! catalog was done with. Let's just say you need a LOT of patience, a steady hand and a very tiny applicator to get the chalk on there without a lot of residue left behind. So it was put in the circular file awaiting the recycling truck on Friday!!!

Then I thought I would play with some brushed silver card stock and embossing powder. I embossed the image on white card stock using silver embossing powder. I used the "Merry Moments" decorative paper on the small panels in the background. The flower was punched out from one of the retired punches and a silver brad was added to the middle. Such an easy card to make and it had enough layers for me to be happy with!!! LOL

It was actually a fun card to make and something I would consider doing for the yearly Christmas card (if I were looking). I have our cards going and will show you once I finish. The goal is to have them done before Thanksgiving. Wish me luck on that one!!

Click on the photo to view it closer. You will be able to see the silver embossing and the shimmer of the silver card stock. It's SO pretty!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
