Viva Las Vegas!!


So, boys weekend trip to Las Vegas means I get to scrap ALL weekend... well, except when I'm working or running errands...lol.  This card is made using Artiste for the swing card (yes, Artfully Sent is not the only CTMH cartridge with cool cards on it!) and the February Stamp of the Month "A Happy Hello".  I have been playing with this set a lot this weekend and you'll be seeing a few creations over the next couple weeks.  I've also had my heat gun out and embossing which I have not done in years... literally!  This one was all gold embossing powder.  The papers are mostly from an old special paper pack, Free To Be Me.  Below is a pic of the "inside" of the card.

 
I also used some of the gold sticker paper from last month's special A Year Noted.  I cut the scalloped frame out of the largest of the circles on the sheet and I used the banner from it as well on the front.  some sparkle gems made out of shimmer trim and a couple puffy butterflies.
 
Starting next week I'll be on the Design Team at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog.  Check it out at http://atlanticheartschallenge.blogspot.com/ and play along.  There is a new sketch each week and your creations are due to be linked by Sunday.  The top three are announced each Wednesday morning.  The prize is a blog badge and bragging rights!  Do you really need anything more than that?  You still have time to participate in this week's challenge so get busy!  There is a great sketch (as always) to get you motivated.  Check back Monday to see my take on the challenge for the coming week.  I'll give you a hint... MORE Happy Hello!  I just love the versatility of this one!  Thanks for stopping!

  1. Love your cards, and I get to see the amazing work you do, and learn other techniques. As usual I now want to do heat embossing too. Next I'm going to want an Cricut Explore :)
