Sunday Stamps # 59 We're going Gold!

I'm a day late with my Sunday Stamps project, but that's okay  because I was so happy I found the sketch at MoJo Monday to use with my Color Combo. We're on a Color Combo Bi-Week and the colors are Aqua, Gold & Mint..

I was hoping I had some Gold Glimmer paper in my stash but no luck. I did have some of the Gold paper in the Holiday Mini Catalog so it worked out. I needed a Congrats card and this came out perfect! The Gold is hard to photograph but it's so pretty in person. 

The card base is Coastal Cabana and then I added a layer of Gold that was embossed with the chevron folder. Then I heat embossed the Congrats from Sassy Sayings onto a piece of Calypso Coral in Gold embossing powder. Then I added some Coastal Cabana flags behind it. 

I embossed some of the Butterflies from the Beautiful Wings embosslit with the Gold, Coastal Cabana & Calypso Coral. I need to start Heat embossing more, the look it creates is so striking. 

Head over to Sunday Stamps and see what the rest of the Design Team created and we hope you will play along with us the challenge is open for 2 weeks. The MoJo Monday Challenge is open until Sunday night. 

Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. Beautiful! I love the embossed gold foil and heat embossing. I will file away this sketch for a card class next week! Thanks.

  2. Love that chevron embossed gold background! The embossed butterfly is lovely too! The flags, colors and greeting all have a congratulatory feel to them. Great job--I'm glad you really like it too!
