Snow Much Fun

Today I'm sharing another image from the amazing "Winnie Winter Wishes" collection.  I can't stop making cards with these beauties!!

Not a project goes by that I don't normally pick out my papers first so for this one I did a combo pick and used Gnome for Christmas and Snowtime Like Christmas.  That's also how I decide my color combo's for coloring my image.  I'm very much a matcher...even with my clothes!  LOL!  

I also decided to make a couple Poinsettia Lace flowers.  OH MY they are gorgeous!!  I die cut 2 of the medium and large poinsettia dies then started carefully shaping them.  I added some sugar glitter and let them dry (cuz the sugar glitter is like a glue) and then glued the layers together.   When I adhered them to the card this is also when I added some pieces from the  Holly & Spruce dies underneath.  When the whole card was complete I added some gesso to add more of a winter/snow look.  

This image is "Snow Much Fun" and I've colored her using my prismacolors.  I also added some glitter to the stars on her hat and the snow that they are standing on.  What a cute little pair!!  

I created this card as a birthday card for a winter birthday and added the Perfect Parcels under my bouquet in the upper right corner.  Hmmm...they may be hiding a bit too much but they are there.

I also have a tutorial on my YouTube channel for skin using Prismacolor's:

Eventually I will share how I colored my complete image breaking it down into 4 or 5 video's so if you'd like to see that pop over and subscribe.  😀

Thanks so much for coming by today!

Yeti, It's Cold Outside

Today I'm sharing a card that could be used for just winter or Christmas.  I started with Lawn Fawn's Snowday Remix papers and then die cut a layer using the Leafy Tree Backdrop.  It's an easy and quick way to get your card started and I love that!  I chose the characters from the Yeti or Not stamp and die set and also cut the snowflakes from the Winter Skies stamp set. 

My background includes Stitched Mountain and Stitched Hillside borders as well as the Little Town Border.

I think I have enough dies 😂😂😂 to enter Lawn Fawn's challenge of:

Can you even fathom eating a snow cone or iced treat in winter?!!  Brrrrr!!  Me either but what's your favorite?!!   I think the Reese's pieces ice cream bar is my absolute favorite but I'll eat that indoors thanks very much!  😁

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Ho Ho Holiday

I LOOOOOOVE THIS CARD!!  Even tho it's not my design it's still one of my favorites.  When I saw Antonia Florence from Taffleberry Lane do this, I knew I just HAD to try it for myself.  It's a smidge different but it was fun!!  I started out by coloring everything with my copics and funny how I thought it would go quickly cuz they're small.....well they didn't.  LOL!!

Then I created my background using distress oxide inks and paint for the splatter.  After that I cut all my light and rooftop dies and created my card.  I used some Snow-Tex for more snow texture but next time I'll add some glitter!!  

For my lights I punched the individual lights and then colored them with my copics.  I added Stickles over top and then glossy accents for a 3D effect and WOW do those suckers pop!!  I think it's my favorite part of the card!!

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did.  If you have any questions please let me know and thanks for popping by!

Supplies used:

I'm going to enter this card into Lawn Fawn's although I think it's good for anyone.  😁

Have a great weekend!

Lawn Fawn's "Cards For Guys" Challenge

My first time using my Zig markers!  Fun but still a lot to learn I think!  😀  I’ve created my card for Lawn Fawn’s “Cards For Guys”challenge, although I think it would be a great Christmas card for anyone.  Aren’t the singing penguins CUTE?!  "Here We Go A-Waddling" set along with LF's "Little Town Border" and "Stitched Hillside Borders". 

And what about those "Mini String Lights"? I glittered those up using Stickles and then added some glossy accents to them to make them POP!  Jeepers in hindsight I think next time I'll cut the lights from some glitter paper that I just realized I have.  Annnnnd that's the problem with stash folks!!  LOL!!

Enjoy your week!

Winter Wishes

How about a shaker box card for today?

I love these things but for some reason I make very few of them and really they are quite easy.  I started out by picking one piece of paper from the gorgeous "Peeling Paint" 6" x 6" paper pack.  I knew I was going to cover quite a bit of it so I decided only one piece would do and yup, very unusual for me I know it!  😂😂  I distressed all edges using hickory smoke distress ink.  

I thought since I was going to cover a layer with design paper I might as well cut right from the middle and use it for my focal piece.  And honestly, I only had a few squares of it left and it was the perfect color so I was being creative in case I needed more.  LOL!!  

Before putting my image into the sealed shaker, I added some stardust Stickles to those big gorgeous snowflakes and some Enamel accents to the little snowman's hat.

Here are the elements of my shaker.  This is the back side of my clear top piece and a variety of shaker pieces to add to the inside.

The next step for me is to grab all my embellishments that I MIGHT use and see what works with the card and what real estate I am able to cover up.  LOL!!  I already added the gorgeous "Glorious Border" craft die hiding beneath some burlap butterflies and some leather tassels I had in my stash.  I've got quite a selection of silver and wooden hearts for wherever my creativeness takes me.  I never know what my card will end up looking like and it's always a pleasant surprise.  I created a tag using Posydoodles Tags die set and a saying from the Sentimentals 6" x 6" pack.

After I decided on my choices for the variety from above, I then started with my flowers and added a couple of amazing bouquets.

When I was finished glueing everything down I added some more Stardust stickles to the wooden hearts to complete the look.   This image is from the new collection "Winnie Winter Wishes" and what I loved about this one is it doesn't have to be a Christmas card but you could make it into a birthday card or a sweet "hello" card.  It's very versatile.

So do you always know pretty much what your card is going to look like when you're finished?  I'm always amazed when I even come CLOSE to what I first envision.  😂  That's the great thing about this hobby.  Nothing is ever wrong.  I love it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Lawn Fawn Challenge

For today's post I'm sharing my latest, creating a card for Lawn Fawn's challenge of a sketch.

Again I've used my distress ink oxides to do the sky with wilted violet, chipped saphire and black soot.  I seem to really like that color combo.  

Even tho I'm quite new to Lawn Fawn I did pick up some of their older sets so today some of these pieces are from "Winter Skies" and the little bear is from "Beary Happy Holidays".  Oh and the "Joyful" sentiment is from the new "Mice on Ice" stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed my little card today.  It's tough trying to do CAS cards but I'm loving it!  LOL!

Have a great weekend!
