FMS219 - Just Believe

Well, winter has finally found its way to Northern Virginia….wow it is cold today!!  The good news is that the weather was just the excuse to hang out in the stamp room yesterday.  My mom is visiting so we did some stamping and hanging out.  She was a big help on this card because I kept running into creative road blocks.  Which is crazy because this sketch is awesome!  The oh so amazing Cindy Hall created this one and it is a classic for sure.

Over the Black Friday time frame, I took advantage of some great deals from Lil’ Inker Designs and purchased this Fancy Feathers stamp set that I had wanted for quite a while. I just love these feathers and their matching dies!  The sentiments in the set fill some holes I had too so this was a big win to find it on sale!  Now that the holidays are over, I finally had the chance to break out the set and I love it even more than I thought!  I kept this to all gold and white.  I cheated a little, maybe, on the sketch because I didn’t create two panel colors on the base but I think I kept to the spirit of the layout at least.  Good thing Cindy already told us that we could not be fired with her as the boss this week!  Whew!  *smile*  I inked up the feathers using Versamark and heat embossed them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  The same for the sentiment.  I created the frame by layering the Stitched Rectangles Dies from Simon Says Stamp.  The Gold Thread and gold sequins from the Metallics Sequins (SU) add a little more gold goodness!  For some reason it looks dark here but the shine in person is really pretty.  I just love the sentiment and my mom had a great suggestion for the perfect recipient!

Ok, the team has rocked the sketch and you are going to have a great time with it for sure.  So off to the stamp rooms!  Can’t wait to see your creations!

Oh. My. Gosh. Girlfriend, you are rock in’ the gold and white cards lately. This is so stunning, I mean really stunning. The details are perfect in every way. I can’t begin the imagine how beautiful it is in person. And, as for being the boss, this card should earn you a promotion, but you already do everything for the team! So, I guess a huge Thank You is the best I can offer. THANK YOU!
