Sparkly Seasons Greetings

Happy Saturday!  Well, I did get a chance to play, and you might say that the weather here inspired this card!  We ended up with 7″ of snow and it is now -12 Celsius and windy out there!

To make the base I used some retired CTMH double sided sticker paper on white cardstock.  I then punched out a ton of snowflakes on sticker backing paper, if you want to do this technique always save this stuff!  I then layered on the flakes in a random pattern, once I was happy I used the backing sheet and brayer to make sure that everything was firmly in place.  I then added my first layer of glitter, the darkest colour and burnished.  To do the snowflakes I used very fine tipped tweezers to lift them.  I then added the next colour, burnished and repeated until done with the lightest colour.  I stenciled a snowflake onto the tag and embossed the sentiment.

Paper: CTMH  Ink:CTMH, Versamark  Stamp: Penny Black  Other: Glitter Ritz glitter, Dollar store glitter, satin ribbon, snowflake punches, glittery ep.

We are going to put up the Christmas tree this afternoon, once that is done I may play a little bit more!  Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!

Wow, I won something!

Amazing, but true!  LOL  I never win stuff so I was super excited when I found out that I won some super blog candy for my November Sheetload card!  There were so many great cards made, if you have time check them out in the new Sheetload gallery.  Sheetload is a great place to get new sketches each month and they give you all the measurements to make one card or how to cut for many at the same time.  Great for this time of year and all of the Christmas cards that we need!  I guess you want to know which card I did, well you can see it here

I am going to go up to my playroom today and try to create something new, yesterday I got sidetracked and never got up there.  I will try and get back with something new to share soon, until then I hope you have a great day, and as always thanks for stopping by!
