enjoy the adventure ahead...



I'm playing with some new Stampin' Up goodies:

























The Stampin' Up Four Feathers Bundle is so much fun.  In today's card, I used the dies.  I masked them and smooshed them into my embossing pad and covered them with Gold Embossing Powder.  I love that look, don't you?

To bring even more gold into my card, I used the Pebbles Decorative Tape...

gold + scallops = ♡

The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up Life's Adventure's set.  I masked off the sentiment from the main image and heat embossed it.  It shows up better in this close up shot:

cardstock:  stampin' up basic gray/garden green & blackberry bliss  stamps:  stampin' up life's adventures  ink:  gold embossing powder  other:  pebbles decorative tape, stampin' up four feathers die, paper accents vellum, stampin' up scolor me autumn washi

The Color Me Autumn Washi makes for a nice patterned pop and at $4.95 for 3 rolls, you can't beat it!

Don't you love the color combo?  I was inspired by the



I adore both color trios but went with


So excited for Virginia's View's newest challenge



I heat embossed in gold and added the gold glitter tape!

Here's to a fantastic week!

  5. Fabulous... I can't decide if by the time I decide to get feather dies that they will be past their trendy moment in spotlight? I never bought a mason jar die either... fabulous card, might have to pull out the gold.
