Embossed Snow


Hi everyone.  Today I spent a lot of time in my studio.  Had lots of fun and ended up making four cards ... that must be a record for me.  Will share the others with you soon.

This is for the current challenge at Merry Monday (#157) that is being run by my good friend Bonnie.



I used an embossing folder for the snowy background that my friend Susan lent me. Love this folder!!

I die-cut some snowbanks and added dazzling details (glitter glue) along the tops, but it doesn't show in the photo.  It adds a bit of sparkle.

I stamped the owl, coloured it with Copics, added white dots to his scarf with a gel pen and then fussy-cut him out.  Glossy accents were added to his eyes and once dry, he was popped up on the snow for added dimension.  Stamped the sentiment and added some twine and I was done.  Easy, peasy card and so much fun to make! :)

I'm going to enter this into this week's JUGS challenge (291 - word week) as well ... they are looking for cards with twine.




And also a reminder about the Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - Die-cuts / Punches.  There's also a DT call going on. :)


Edited to add:  Just realized the challenge at ATS&M #143, is Holiday!  Perfect. Linking up to the challenge!  And thanks to my friend Sandie, for letting me know it fits the STAMPLORATIONS sketch challenge!


Happy to get another Christmas card added to my stash.  It's building ... slowly. Need to step it up a bit. :)

Have a great rest of the week!

Such a fun look to this festive little Hooty in his patterned scarf. Love the way you used the Snow EF (looks like the Kars Snowflake EF perhaps?) with the rolling snowdrifts. I could see the sparkling on the tops of the drifts quite nicely. Love the finishing touch of that pretty twine too. TFS & Happy Mom's Day. Hugs
