Merry Christmas!! & Flurry of Wishes Emboss Resist Card

It's Christmas Eve...well, actually, technically I think it's Christmas morning! I just finished playing Santa for my four darlings and before I get a few winks of sleep, I wanted to post real quick to say Merry Christmas!! I know that I will spend my day playing with the kids, making yummy food, and enjoying family time. I hope you get to spend time with the people you love this Christmas!
Here's one very last Christmas card for you. I was planning to do a video, but just ran out of time.
Stampin' Up! Flurry of Wishes Emboss Resist Christmas Card with snowflakes #stampinup
Pin It!
Stampin' Up! Supplies: Flurry of wishes stamp set, Bermuda Bay ink & cardstock, Shimmer White cardstock, Versamark ink pad, Whisper White Embossing Powder, Heat tool, AquaPainter, Snow Flurry Punch, Rhinestones, Iced Rhinestones, Stampin' Dimensionals

I was inspired by a card that my mom did with her stamp club last month and made this up while I was there for Thanksgiving.

The technique is called Emboss Resist. I embossed the large snowflake in Whisper White embossing powder on Shimmer White cardstock and then used the AquaPainter to watercolor over it. The photo doesn't do it justice! It's gorgeous in person! See More Emboss Resist projects.

A little bit of housekeeping:
  • Sneak Peek Week starts on Saturday, December 26th. Watch for new samples from the new Occasions Catalog every day! 
  • I am skipping this week with the Pocket Sketch Challenge. Watch for the new challenge and announcement of last week's winner next Wednesday, December 30th.
  • Thank you to everyone who has placed an order this month! I haven't had a chance to make up thank you's yet, but it's next on my list after my swaps, so watch for your free Sketch Book in the mail around the new year if you ordered $40 or more in December. (It's not too late to get yours free if you haven't placed your order yet!)
  • Stampin' Up! added a few items to the Year End Sale earlier this week. Check it out.
  • I've had a few people ask about my MDS Calendar. I'm a little behind, but still planning to make and send them for 2016. If you received the Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs from me, you'll get a calendar too!
