Welcome to 2 new Members and a White Card

I have been incredibly busy the last few days and it looks like its going to be like that for the next weeks.....But it has always been like that - as soon as thanksgiving rolls around all sorts of things pop up and eat up my time. Do you feel the same way? But tonight I took some time - I needed to get my mind off stuff and made a card. But before we get there I have more important business to take care of. i have two more new members to welcome to my blog:

Linda (no blog I'm afraid)

and

  Shirely.

Shirley is a master of CAS cards, go pay her a visit - you won't be disappointed!

I have a welcome picture for you Ladies:




The sculpture is by Anna Chromy and is titled Olympic Spirit. It stands outside the Archaeological Museum in Athens. I like it a lot - so dynamic!


And now the card, of course. I made this for Inkspirational - White is the theme.


I made another batch of embossing paste - the recipe you can find HERE. 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 used a few different stencils - I may show some of the cards later (they are not yet finished....). YOu can see it a bit better in the close-up:


I die cut two stars using glitter paper and mounted them on foam tape. The sentiment is Mama Elephant - Merry Greetings.

I am entering this card into the CHNC challenge - anything Christmas and because of the technique I am also entering this into the 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 - stay well!
