Welcome to SU Stars Blog Tour 4

It's that time again for SU Stars monthly Blog Tour that is happening this weekend February 19/20. The start time is Saturday morning at 7am PT/8am MT/9am CT/10am ET and the posts will be up thur Sunday night at Midnight.

If you started at the beginning then you arrived here from the very talented Diana Soling at http://handmadebydiana.typepad.com/ and you are right on track. If you get lost along the way then go back to the beginning at http://su-stars.blogspot.com/ where you will find the list of blogs.

This month we are focusing on items from the Occasions Mini and Sale-A-Bration's Mini.  I chose to make my card from the Occasions Mini. I love everything in the mini so it was hard to choose just one, so I didn't.

 I wanted to create something simple and elegant and I hope you like how it came out.

I am a new demonstrator so I am learning new things all the time and this week I tried a technique called Neutral Shadows from technique junkie.  I used the new Framed Tulips embossing folder to add depth and texture.  I stamped the image with Versa Mark, craft whisper white and then sprinkled clear embossing powder over the image and  then I heat embossed . Then I took a brush (or stencil brush) and stippled the neutral ink(basic grey) on and around the embossed image, following the lines of the design.   I took some of Su basic pearls and dyed them to match using a sponge dauber with basic grey ink for a little Bling! Added some Satin Grey ribbon(retired).

Here is what you will need:

Card Stock:  Basic Grey, Whisper White
Ink Pads:      Basic Grey, Versa Mark
Stamp sets:  Because I care and Afterthoughts(from the SAB)
Clear embossing powder, adhesive, glue dots, Basic Pearls, ribbon
Framed Tulip embossing folder from the new Occasion's Mini

Leave me a comment if you like, I enjoy reading what everyone says.  Now onto Marta Gomez, at http://www.stampartpapel.com/.  I know Marta  has something wonderful planned for you.
