I’m back from my trip! Had a fun time with my friends and teaching a couple stamping classes! Time always goes by SO fast while I’m there. It is tiring, but I’m always happy to see everyone.
This card was the one that I did for my Control Freaks Swapping group. I think it is safe to share it now…everyone should have received their package of swaps. They ALL were awesome, like usual! This is a great group of gals. It was fun getting together with them at lunch time during one day at Convention. Several I had met…some were new faces. Love to put faces with names.
Funny story about making this card. I took all the pieces with me when I had to do a 2 hour glucose test at my doctor’s office. While I was waiting for results, I grabbed the table in the waiting room and spread out. I had several people stop by and comment on them…wondering why I was working on Christmas cards in August! I gave my card out to a couple people…would be fun to get a new customer from that experience!
This card uses the new Snowflake #2 die! I used Shimmer paper so it is really sparkly in real life. The base card is Whisper White with a layer of Baja Breeze. I inked up a blank jumbo cartridge with Baja Breeze refill so I could use the Jumbo snowflake wheel in the background. The Window Dressing snowmen I stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White, then watercolored the background with Bashful Blue. I used Really Red markers for the scarves and Only Orange for the nose. They were punched with the 1 3/8 circle punch and layered on Not Quite Navy Scallop Circle. I wrapped the 5/8" Real Red ribbon around the Baja Breeze layer and attached to the base card. I am very happy with how this card turned out!
Tomorrow is the Blogger’s Challenge Friday again! Check back for my post. (Guess I’d better get working on it, huh?)
