Black and Gold Very Merry Tags, Extra $25 Hostess Cash, New Best of Stamp Set & September Winners!

Wow!  Lots of great stuff going on today!  I’ve got two September ordering winners and Stampin’ Up! has a new Best of Christmas stamp set available now, new My Digital Studio downloads available now plus an awesome deal where you can earn an extra $25 in Hostess Cash with a $250 order or party!  All of the details are below.

My card design today was inspired by the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #138 Sketch.  I used the Very Merry Tags and the Mosaic Punch from Stampin’ Up! to create my card.  Hope that you’ll head over to the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday blog and join us this week!

Very Merry Tags

I started by embossing a Basic Black panel with the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder.  Then I embossed a panel of the Gold Foil Sheets with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder and I adhered it to a panel of Basic Black card stock, then to the mosaic embossed panel with SNAIL.  I wrapped a piece of Basic Black 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon around the layered panel and adhered it with SNAIL, then tied a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot in the center and a little SNAIL on the ends to hold the long strings.

Next, I stamped the Very Merry Tags image in VersaMark ink on Basic Black card stock.  I sprinkled the images with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, heat embossed them and punched them out with the Mosaic Punch.  I adhered the embossed punches with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a rhinestone to the center of each one.  To finish the card front, I stamped the sentiment from the Embellished Events stamp set in VersaMark ink on Whisper White card stock, sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I punched the sentiment out with the Word Window Punch and adhered it with SNAIL to a Modern Label Punch from Basic Black card stock, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Petite Pairs

To finish the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Petite Pairs stamp set in StazOn Jet Black ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of Gold Foil Sheet embossed with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder to a strip of Basic Black card stock then to the Whisper White panel.
