The Shabby Tea Room's Challenge was this beautiful picture. Aren't the colors yummy!
This is my take on this inspirational picture...
I first embossed my cardstock but before running it through my Big Shot I lightly went over the raised background with Versamark Ink. After I put it through I then put white embossing powder all over the cardstock and heated with my heat tool. After that I used tattered rose distress ink and went over the cardstock and of course it resisted the embossed areas. I stamped this jolly ole snowman on a die cut piece of shimmering white cardstock and colored with my copics. I added a snowflake button on his hat that I also colored with my copics and a few clear gems that I colored also. I punched a few snowflakes and added glitter. I used a tag which I stamped and glittered as well.
I added some black Glossy Accents for his button and clear on his eyes.
Today I just have a couple cards that I made for my family that will not be here with us on Thanksgiving. I used Papertrey Ink stamps and dies and some My Mind's Eye paper and Basic Grey paper. The cardstock is Papertrey.
Well it has been a long time. I started school and between that and all my children's comings and goings, I've been swamped! I'm also trying to sneak in some long walks here and there. I wanted to post a new card that I made last night. I am currently taking a great class with Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner. They are so inspirational!! So glad to be a part of it.
I stamped this little guy on some PTI white cardstock with Memento ink and then colored with Copics. I have added some Hero Arts bling in some of the snowflakes which are hard to see in this photo. The next picture shows more of the card. I followed a sketch that was presented in the class...Holiday Boot Camp.
I die cut a scalloped circle and inked the edges a bit with Distress Picket Fence ink. I used dimensional tape and added that to a circle card that I cut using circle cutters from Creative Memories. I made the banner tag from PTI cardstock and stamped Believe in the new PTI Red Poppy Ink. I love the way this little guy turned out.
Hope you are having a great week and I hope to be back soon!
