I have the pleasure of stamping with the design team at The Paper Players this week! They are such a great group of ladies and I always jump at the chance to be a part of them. Thank you, Nance, for giving me the opportunity to stamp in your place this week. :) Anne Marie is our hostess for this week and she has challenged us with a sketch. Now I definitely found it to be a challenge, but I like the end result(s). Channeling my inner Lesley, I made two cards! I'm curious which one you'll like the best. :)
This was the first card that I made yesterday morning. I had some new toys arrive on Thursday, so I had to try them out! The Northern Frost decorative strip die is now my new favorite Big Shot die! All the snowflakes are gorgeous and look amazing on cards. I also added some of my new mica flakes to give my card a snowy look. It always makes me sad that glitter doesn't seem to photograph well; this card has falling snow and a very snowy ground.
Stamps: Snow Much Fun
Ink: Staz On Black, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Pool Party, Island Indigo, Whisper White
Tools/Accessories: Big Shot, Snow Burst embossing folder, Northern Frost decorative strip die, In color printed brads, mica flakes, Dazzling Details, blender pens
As I was drifting off to sleep last night, I had an idea for another card and it is my favorite of the two and the one I used as my "official" card. Dasher is one of my favorite stamps and I was happy to dream up an idea using him. I plan on using this as a thinking of you card this winter; I have a special aunt who I think will love it as much as I do. Now I want to get some brushed silver card stock because I can totally see this card in Night of Navy and Silver.
Paper: Basic Gray, Basic Black, Neutrals designer paper stack, Whisper White
Tools/Accessories: Big Shot, Northern Frost decorative strip die, Neutrals glimmer brads, heat tool, black embossing powder
