Another Monday behind us, I always feel a little better when Monday is done. I had a very nice evening last night. Andrew came by and picked me up and we went to Friday’s for dinner. After, we came back to my place and watched Divergent, he hadn’t see it and said that he really enjoyed it. It was nice to catch up, he has been quite busy lately. He was lucky enough to win tickets to go and see Jason Mraz the Friday that I was away at Convention. He had great seats and really enjoyed himself. An evening spent with a good friend, doesn’t get better than that! :-)
As always on Tuesday here are this week’s Stampin’ Up! weekly deals…
Now off the fun! The card I have for you today is for the SUO Challenges! This time we ask you to show off your favorite new toys. I was lucky enough to win what I think is probably my favorite thing out of the new holiday catalog while I was at Convention. The card begins with a base of Pear Pizzaz Card Stock The background is a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the Hardwood Background Stamp in Smoky Slate. Before I adhered the background to the card, I used the Squares Collection Framelits to cut out a piece behind the “window” and adhered a piece of All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper. The background is then adhered to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My window is made again using the Squares Collection Framelits and a piece of Whisper White Card Stock. I adhered a piece of Window Sheet to the backside of the window for a more authentic look. The window is then adhered to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. My wreath is from the Wondrous Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Pear Pizzaz, Mossy Meadow, and Cherry Cobbler. To cut it out I used the Wonderful Wreath Framelits. The flowers are also from the same set, cut out with the same framelits, and adhered to wreath with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers to color in some Basic Jewels Pearls and put them in the centers of all the flowers. The wreath is then adhered to the window with, yes you guessed it, Stampin’ Dimensionals! My greeting is cut out using the Wonderful Wreath Framelits from a piece of Cherry Cobbler and adhered with 2-Way Glue. I went with a white wood background because I felt it gave the card a more wintry feel and I really love the way the wreath looks on the window. So there you have my card for the SUO Challenges: Favorite New Things Challenge. I know Christmas is a ways off, but I do love to play with some new stuff. I hope you enjoyed the card and don’t forget to stop by the blog to see what my fellow designers have used for their cards. I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday! :-)
