Aloha...

Yep, I'm posting a warm, summer, vacationy card in the middle of December... Why, you might ask?  Cause it's my blog and I can post if I want too hehehe! Really it's because I really wanted to play along in the Anything Goes Mix it Up Challenge happening on the Sugar Pea Designs Blog and I needed something to warm me up...


Another fun thing about this card is that it gave me a chance to try a technique I have only done maybe once, a year or two ago?  To create this card I started by inking a panel with versa mark ink and heating it up with gold embossing powder.  I then redid this around four times until the embossing powder was nice and thick.  While it was still warm I smooshed the crap out of my pineapple stamp :), and ta-da!  I finished it off by trimming it, adding my sentiment at the top with Versafine ink and paneling it in black and pink cardstock.  I LOVE it!  And while the picture is cool, it is so much cooler in person!

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my blog today!
Happy Crafting!
