Winter Fun

Hi All!

Happy Thursday! Another week just flying on by, where does the time go? I've been busy with stuff around the house and errands, but I made some time this morning to squeeze in some stamping!

I wanted to make a card just for the sake of making a card. It was nice to stamp for fun! I did use a few challenges for some inspiration though.

I wanted to make a holiday card now that I have this fabulous Eskimo Kisses paper from BasicGrey. You can get some too at Paper Maniac! I just love the pretty colors and they match really well with some of the SU! cardstocks. I used Razzleberry, white, and Pink.

I've embossed the white layer with my snowflakes folder and then added some shimmer with my clear Spica glitter pen. It's not very easy to see in the photo though. I've distressed all the edges of the paper to fit the challenge at Charisma Cardz. I love distressing, so this challenge was right up my alley. The layout is from this week's Our Creative Corner challenge.

I embellished with a felt die cut snowflake, some Prima flowers and gems, and some hemp twine and a snowflake charm. The sentiment is from SU! and I've framed it with my oval and window punches. This card also fits the challenges at Creative Card Crew, to use scallops, Everybody Art Challenge to use punches, LaLa Land which is winter and Christmas, and Whiff of Joy challenges to use a WOJ image and dies cuts.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a great afternoon. I'm off to clean up the house now, fun times! Happy stamping! :)
