Snowy Christmas Tree

Still making Christmas cards! This one is for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge! I used embossing paste and glitter embossing powder through the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil. I then die cut the panel using Simon Says Stamp Frames die set. The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas die! The Christmas tree is covered with Distress Stickles glitter and is from a Silhouette die cut file! Thanks for looking!

Birthday Winter Fairy

I really enjoy challenging myself with using stamp sets in a different way than intended. I used this cute fairy from Craftin Desert Divas's Winter Fairies set but colored her in spring tones. I also used Craftin Desert Divas's Floral Wreath set in the background of a 4 bar card (3.5" x 4 7/8"). I wanted the fairy to pop on the background so I did two things. First, I sprayed the panel after it was colored in with W Plus 9 Shimmer Spray. I did this twice for a heavy coating of shimmer which will knock back the brightness. Secondly, I popped the fairy up on foam tape and added some Clear Wink of Stella. The die cut sentiment is from Craftin Desert Divas's Sending die and the birthday wishes stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink on a banner is from Craftin Desert Divas's Wishful Thoughts set.

Have a great day!

Playful Pup Left Outside in the Snow

For this card, I used images from The Ink Blot Shop's Playful Pups and Hello Lovely sets. These are large images and easy to color with any medium. I used a W Plus 9 sentiment to finish off because I thought the poor dog might be cold! The window die is from Mama Elephant.
