Its 11.40am Monday morning and the house is completely quiet. Yes, the kids went back to school this morning. They were happy to be seeing all their friends and I was happy to have a bit more of 'me time'. Although I do miss their laughter and cuddles. Won't be long till 3pm and maybe I'll be wishing for quiet time again......
This is our incredible inspiration card for Muse this week, by the amazing Vicki Dutcher. I just knew this would be a chance to get out my heat gun and try some more embossing, as I sure do need the practice!
I loved Vicki's card so much I didn't really stray too far from her original design. I have these fantastic doily stamps that I hardly use, so stamped and heat embossed in gold, in a random design. I adhered the black panel straight to the front of my white card. I decided to heat emboss the sentiment in gold as well, on to a strip of vellum. This was glued straight to the front too. No rhinestones, sequins or enamel dots this time. I love how it turned out, thank you Vicki so much for the inspiration!!
The doily stamps are from Couture Creations and the sentiment from Sullivans.
I'm also going to link this to the challenge at Addicted to Stamps #116 where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.
Will also link to the Stamplorations October Challenge where their theme is 'Stamping and Embossing'.
And last but not least, will link to the CAS on Sunday Challenge #44 where their theme is 'Emboss it'.
I've got one more card to post and then I have a few jobs to do with my blog. Although, I don't really know much about blog design but hopefully I can figure out what I need to do without making too much of a mess. Just such a good time to do it with no one around, as I need 100% of my brain to work it all out!
