Gina K Designs Customer Blog Hop

Well how cool is that? Gina K is having a customer blog hop! All you gotta do is make a project/card with one of her newest releases and link it to her blog....and you are good to go. I decided to try something a little different I pulled out a frame I had gotten at the Dollar Tree....hope you like! I used the Festive Frame set, colored with copics, cut it out, matted it a little, and viola! Other than my crappy doesn't look too bad.

Unity Friday!

Today is another Friends With Flair Friday over at Unity. Make sure to check out all of the blogs for your chance to win some Unity stamps!

I knew I wanted to make a Christmas card for todays post, and I knew I wanted to use some of my new Jolly by Golly Cosmo Cricket paper from over at Limelight.

So I stamped the poinsettia from Hodge Podge of Happiness, and then cut it out. Next, I glued it onto a piece of black paper and then cut that out, leaving a very small amount of black around the flower. I then wanted to emboss it, so using my versafine pad, and some clear embossing powder, I got it all ready to emboss and fired up the heat gun. What happened next had me puzzled for a few minutes....because it was turning fuzzy and falling off instead of melting like it should have. So as I assessed the situation and tried to figure out what in the world made my embossing powder was then that I realized I was trying to emboss glitter!!! Sooooo....I brushed off my fuzziness, and tried again...this time actually using embossing powder. This time it worked, and I hope you enjoy my card.
