Happy Thursday to you all. Hope your week is going well. It's getting colder and colder here, so we've been inside most of the week. Perfect stamping weather although I've been so busy I haven't had much time for fun things!
I did squeeze in some time last night, after the kids went to bed, to stamp and make a couple things. First is a card I made and fit to some challenges. It's been a while since I've participated in the challenges, it was nice!
I have lots of new Whimsy Stamps rubber so I wanted to ink up one of them. This is Whimsy Winter Raccoons! I've colored with copics and added some chunky and sparkly glitter for snowy accents. This stamp works for the Scene challenge at Stamp with Fun.
I went with all blues and whites for my paper colors and used some pretty SU! snowflake printed paper. This fits the Blue Christmas challenge at Cute Daisy May. I also used my lace border punch to create some faux lace accents. These are scalloped shaped and fit the so many scallops challenge at My Time to Craft.
I've embellished this card with gel pen faux stitching, a felt snowflake with gem center, and then some sticky gem swirls for added bling. The added touches of silvery bling help to fit the Blue White and Silver color challenge at Colour Create.
Next I have a holiday ornament to share with you. Our assignment for design work this week at Paper Maniac was to continue with create ideas for holiday decor.
I created this ornament to put my kids pictures on and give to the grandparents this year as keepsakes. I haven't added the photos yet, but will do that after we take some holiday shots of the kids.
I used my Labels Nesties and some Eskimo Kiss paper from BasicGrey. Each frame is a coordinating piece of paper and cardstock glued to another coordinating cardstock and paper piece. I've punched eyelets in the top and bottom on the top piece and only in the top on the bottom piece. Then I used silver thread to hang them together. I embellished with pearls and some satin ribbon.
Thanks for dropping by today! I hope to have some time to visit each of you later today too. Sorry I haven't been by all week, there just aren't enough hours in the day lately!
Have a great day, happy stamping! :)
