Gray and Silver for Friday Mashup

Happy Friday! Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner? Where does the time go? I go on vacation starting Dec 20 until just after the new year and I can't wait. Lots of time to spend with hubby and the kids, and hopefully also get some stamping in!

This week Cindy is our hostess at The Friday Mashup and she wants to see the colors Basic Gray or Smoky Slate along with some silver! She'd also like us to add some embossing, heat or dry.

I admit I was stumped for a bit but I saw the sketch at Sunday Stamps and combined the 2 challnges for my card. 

I used Smoky Slate for my card base and embossed it with the Lucky Stars TIEF. I took All is Calm and Winter Frost DSP and cut it into banners and layered them. For a final touch I added some silver stretch cord tied in a bow at the top. The sentiment is from an older retired set called Small Script.

Head over to The Friday Mashup blog to see all the great projects from the rest of the DT and then play along with us! The Sunday Stamps sketch is open until 6pm EST Dec.12!
  • Create a project using "Basic Grey or Smoky Slate & Silver". 
  • Create a project using "Dry or Heat Embossing". 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project "using the colors Silver & Grey with some Embossing".

Stamps: Small Script(retired)
Paper: Smoky Slate, All is Calm DSP, Winter Frost DSP
Ink: Smoky Slate
Accessories: Big Shot, Lucky Stars TIEF, Silver Stretch Cord, sponge

  2. I love the mix of patterns...adds lots of interest to the monochromatic card. Great use of texture too. Nice card!

  3. The embossed background is a perfect match for that great mix of DSPs. Love it! Thanks so much for joining us at Sunday Stamps!

  4. I'm loving Smoky Slate right now. Beautiful card to combine with both challenges. Thanks so much for joining us at Sunday Stamps! Hope you will join us again.
