Merry Christmas

 Today I actually have a card I created just for a challenge
and it was so fun!  I saw at Mod Squad they had a 
White & Bright challenge
where you use only white embossing powder on a colored card stock!
Easy peasy, right?

I created 2 different things for this challenge and this is the first one!

I used an older stamp from Stampin Up and a detail
white embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle.
I almost forgot to use my anti-static buddy before I embossed
as it has been awhile since I have used embossing powder it seems.

I have a funny story to tell about the anti-static embossing buddy
if you promise not to laugh!
When I first started card making and embossing I purchased my
anti-static buddy (that is what SU calls it) when I used it
it left all this white powder all over my card stock
so I told my sister it leaked and tossed it out
then she told me that is what it is supposed to do...hahaha...
I had to purchase another one (I now have 3)!
Crazy isn't it?

There is a place on this card I can put a greeting
but left it blank for now
but will definitely use EB powder for that.

I haven't used this stamps in years and thought it would be perfect for this challenge!

I will have my other embossed creation up tomorrow!

Such a pretty Christmas card. Love red and white together. I can up you an the bossing buddy. I was teaching a card making class embossing and I explained why we use the buddy to keep the embossing powder from sticking to places on the card stock where we did not want it. I was about to demonstrate when I looked and one of the ladies was dabbing the embossing buddy on the ink pad then onto her paper. I honestly was so flabbergasted that I did not know what to say.

This is gorgeous Diane! What a funny story but if someone hadn’t told me, I would have probably done the same thing. Lol. Love this stamp. Just beautiful!!

Too funny about the Embossing Buddy. That is hilarious.....sounds like something I would do. I love this card so much. That stamp is perfect for the challenge, and RED is the perfect color for white embossing I think.Great take on the challenge, thank you so much for participating this week at the Mod Squad Challenge

Wow, this is an amazing stamp and it's absolutely gorgeous as white on red! Really funny about the Embossing Buddy. I still have my original that I bought way back when, and it still works! I read what Kathy K wrote about the lady in her stamp class... spew!!!
