Ever have those nights where you just can't sleep? I have them a lot, so I am thankful for stamping and blogging. I find that if I go to bed too early, I am up early, like this morning...........wandering around at 4:30 a.m. wondering what to do!!!

I do have a few nocturnal stamping friends who I can engage in some emails, but it is also a good time to catch up on stamping projects and to blog, of course!!!!

This card is a Scratch and Sniff Card. The lime smells absolutely Fresh and Delicious!!!!

To do this technique you will need:

Clear Embossing Powder
Unsweetened Drink Mix
Embossing Ink.

Mix 1.5 Tablespoons of the Unsweetened Drink Mix of your Choice (Sweetened drinks WILL burn!) with 1 Tablespoon of Embossing Powder. Ink up your stamp with either pigment ink (Stamping UP! craft ink) or Versamark. Shake on your aromatic Embossing Powder and heat emboss. These cards are fun, especially for Childrens Cards.

This card was created using goodies from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalogue. Tart and Tangy, Spring DP and Hardware can be found there................follow the link to my SU! website to find all of these delicious products!!!


  1. I feel your pain...I've been up since 3:15! I too do a lot of blogging and catching up in (what seems to be) the middle of the night. Glad you found something wonderful to do!...and it is a wonderful card!

  2. This is fantastic Vicki! I tried the scratch n' sniff myself, and I just couldn't get it right. Maybe my mixture was off. I'll try what you've got here.

  3. Great idea! Love your card! Deb

  4. When life gives you limes, make margaritas!

    I can't do scratch and sniff crads either. guess you'll have to teach me next month.

  5. Oh yeah, when I come visit can I make name frames all weekend? I don't have the wheel. I do have the people, though. I LOVE your fame and feel I might need to make a bunch.

  6. Darling card Vicki, LOVE the fun design and scratch n' sniff recipe.

    I too do a lot of my Blogging late at night but not that late! Get some rest!

    Jennifer :)
