Here we go...


Well, I have contemplated and wondered about starting a blog. I finally decided to give it a shot. I am seriously about the most computer illiterate person out there so it will be interesting to see where this goes...lol. There are so many stampers that I admire and read their blogs daily that I figured I would try my hand at it. (I bet my Dad is proud...he is the computer genius in the family).

Anyhoo, here is a card I worked on this afternoon. I took part in a challenge on www.splitcoaststampers.com (my favorite website ever!!). I actually combined two of the challenges (the sketch challenge, which you can see here http://http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=191999 and ways to use it challenge, which you can see here http://http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=195706.

I started with bravo burgundy for the base and then mounted Stampin Up's new in colour true thyme. I stamped the tt with French script in bravo burgundy ink and the other side of the cardstock (on the other side of the stamped snowflake image) in always artichoke ink using the snow flurries set from the Holiday mini. I mounted cranberry crisp with the gold cardstock and punched a hole in both pieces to layer the embossed snowflake from the snowflake spot set. (hence the window for the challenge). I used the Basic Grey notch and die cut tool to put in a closure so the layers will stay closed on the card. I finished the card off with some cranberry crisp stitched grosgrain ribbon and a small circle tag. I embossed the edges of the tag with gold embossing powder and mounted a snow flurrie stamped in burgundy on dimensionals.

This is such a fun fold and I know I will be using this one in the future. The measurements for the folds are: the burgundy base layer is 4.25X5.5, true thyme layer is 8.5X4 and scored at 3.25, the cranberry layer is 6X3 and scored at 3".

Well, off to learn more about the world of blogging!
