Friday Mashup #31 !!

It's all about Gratitude this week at the Mashup! Well that and some Heat Embossing... Lisa is our Challenge hostess with the mostess ( is that a word?) ! And she is asking us to make a Thank You project or something that shows Gratitude and use some Heat Embossing.

I'm not a fan of Heat Embossing.. not afraid to say that at all!! It's messy and I don't like to do messy! But you can get some really cool effects with it which is why I do it...

For my project I started with a Background Stamp and went from there... Somehow the colors Red, White & Blue popped in and I went with it! I used the BGS from SU that's retired called Gratuitous Gratitude I think? I stamped it with VersaMark onto a piece of Glossy card stock.

Then I embossed it with some White embossing powder I have that has blue & red glitter in it.. After it cooled I sponged some Pacific Point and Cherry Cobbler onto it. I layered the piece onto the same color card stock.

It was really hard to get a picture of that glitter in the powder...

In the above pix you can kinda of see the Blue & Red Glitter.. and here you can see the sparkle it gives off.

For the Sentiment I Die cut a piece from the Match Box Die using the Big Shot and then I stamped the Thanks from Many Thanks in Cherry Cobbler and sponged the edges in Pacific Point. I added a piece of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding with a staple. It was like it needed something but not a lot!

Make sure you head over to the Friday Mashup Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week and we hope you'll join us!

Who's counting down to the 18th? Anybody... I know some of you are! 2 more weeks until Breaking Dawn Part 1. I can't wait.. I'm actually going to a Marathon of all 4 movies on the 17th that will end with the new one at midnight.. Yeah, you could say I'm a gluten for It will all be worth it for my Twilight Fix!

I'll see you back here over the weekend.. I have some stamping catch up to do!
