High Five!

Happy Saturday!!

Are you doing something special this weekend?  Just getting a little crafty around here, and I wanted to take a minute and share my latest crafty creation with you.

This card was created for the latest designer challenge at Flower Soft.  You see they have these great design mats that are REALLY for use in cake decorating, BUT we've found so many more terrific uses for them that we HAD to share!!  For this card, I used the Snowflake Design Mat and some of the new air dry clay from Stampin' Up!.  WOW!  Talk about a combo!  These two products worked great together.  I simply pinched off some of the clay and smooshed it into the silicone mat, let it dry and popped out a finished snowflake.  I did have to trim the edges and clean up each piece.  After it was completely dry, I brushed the top of the snowflake with some Flower Soft Glue and sprinkled on some Flower Soft Glitter Frosting (Hint of Violet).  It's hard to see that in the photo, but it gives it a super cool looking sparkle.

The image and sentiment are both from Peachy Keen Stamps.  I used the PKSC-19 July 2013 Stamp of the Month set, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored this sweet little penguin with Copic Markers.  Rhinestones, and polka dotted ribbon were my embellishment choices, and the patterned paper was from my scrap bin.  As is usually the case for most of my projects, the card stock is from Stampin' Up!  Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy and Whisper White to be exact.    

Thanks for taking time out of your busy weekend to stop by!
Have a glorious rest of the weekend, and HAPPY STAMPIN'!!!
