Let It Snow! FMS320

January 21, 2018

I am playing along with Kim's sketch at  Freshly Made Sketches this week.  I had a little extra time this week due to the snow it Atlanta.  It inspired my card. 




The little snow scene is created using distress inks, embossing paste and white textured card stock.  I know you can't see the snowflakes in the blue background, but they are there.  LOL!  The little penguin is from the Snow Birds stamp set by Honey Bee Designs.  The matching dies were used to cut him out.  Copic Markers were used for coloring and shading.  A few snowflakes and rhinestones were added for fun!

Believe! --Merry Monday #273

January 21, 2018

I am so excited to join the Merry Monday Challenge.  I had a little extra time this week with the snow in Atlanta and when I saw Marcia's color combination, I had to play along!  Red and Turquoise are my favorite colors!



I dug through my Christmas stamps and found an old   favorite by Tim Holtz.  I love this Santa because he is so retro!  He makes me smile.  A red card base and some turquoise patterns is all I needed to pull this together.  The banner is cut with a Reverse Confetti Tall Tag dies and the Believe is from Papertrey Inks.  A big red button, white twine and Wink of Stella completed my card.  



Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  

Have a great week!

It's time for another challenge at The Paper Players!

Our lovely and multi talented Joanne is our hostess this week.  She wants us to create Clean and Simple Love Notes.  We can't wait to see your projects!  






I created this background with alcohol inks!  I loved the way it turned out.  I know there isn't a lot of white space, but it is clean and simple to me.  I used gold glitter paper to cut out the i and u using the retired Verve dies I heart u.  The heart is cut using the Cherry Lynn Two of Hearts dies.  That is all there is too it-- No stamping or embellishments.
