Simply Create Too #51

There is a new challenge starting at the Simply Create Too challenge blog - the theme is SNOW or USE ONLY WHITE. You have two weeks to play in it!

I made my own embossing paste for this card - the recipe you can find  HERE. It costs literally nothing and its quick and easy. When I first made it I was worried, that it would flake off, but that has not happenend.  It stayed silky smooth and pliable.

 I took one of my TCW stencils, took a PTI star die and masked the star of the stencil with washi tape. I then smeared the embossing paste onto the stencil, which I had taped onto textured card stock and let it dry. 

I die cut two stars using glitter paper, mounted them on dimensional tape and "hung" them on a silver string. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant - Merry Greetings.

I am also entering this card into:
 CHNC challenge - anything Christmas 
 Simon Says Monday Challenge - it's a Mystery

I got inspired to make this card by a wonderful card from Andrea - Bluetenstempel is her blog, you can visit and check it out.

Thanks for visiting me today - have a great weekend and keep stamping!

Brilliant card Cornelia! The simplicity is very powerful and it's perfect for Christmas. I peeked at your tute to make the embossing paste - who'd have thought it? Very clever!!

Hugs, Di xx

Wow! I see a lot of projects and this one is really impressive! I love the simplicity of the color palette. Very elegant! And the hanging stars are a beautiful touch. But what REALLY surprised me was that YOU MADE YOUR OWN PASTE!!! I have never seen that before. In fact, I didn't know that it was possible! Thank you for sharing your beautiful card with us this week for the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge. Not only is it gorgeous to look at, but you've taught me something too! ~Michelle

Cornelia, this is a lovely WoW with the pretty stars. Loved reading the recipe (and am wondering how many jars of the Embossing paste I have drying at home!). Your DIY paste looks lovely with your star stencil, and it certainly created a beautiful card. TFS & congrats on being highlighted at the Playground. Happy T-Day & TFS

Topflight Stamps - Crafty Individuals

Hi Everyone, This week we are focusing on Crafty Individuals stamps on the  Topflight blog .  I dot inspired by the mood board on the Inkspirational challenge blog . I immediately knew I had to use those wonderful houses from Crafty Individuals. I first stamped the housed onto card stock and colored them with alcohol inks. I cut them out. Brushed the background with distress oxide inks and added splatters. Then I added the houses. The little house in front I propped up with foam tape. I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting.  See you next week with more  Topflight Stamps  inspiration. And here are the stamp supplies I used:  Street ,  Blender Brushes Foam tape And don' t forget about the Darkroom Door challenge. To enter the just create a project using at least one Darkroom Door product. Post it to the Topflight Stamps Design Gallery on Facebook and/or post it on your Instagram feed and use the hashtag #TFSDDC . I'm looking so forward to seeing all the amazing things that
