Let It Snow

It's still pretty warm here, but maybe taking a look at some frosty cards will help things feel cooler. The first card features the following products from the newest Frantic Stamper release; Mailbox (FRA-DIE-10537), Little Village (FRA-DIE-10533), Cottage in the Hills (FRA-DIE-10532), Let It Snow (FRA-DIE-10538) and the Snowfall stencil (FRA-STN-016). It also features Christmas Door Accessories (FRA-DIE-10522) from a previous release.



To create the background, tumbled glass distress ink was blended onto Tim Holtz watercolor paper using the distress blending tool.  The snowflakes were stenciled using Art Basics Snowflake Paste.  The "snow" on the mailbox, the "village" and sentiment were cut from glitter paper which you can also find in the store.


Here is another frosty card as promised. I have to say this card features several of my favorite products from the newest Frantic Stamper release; Snowman Kit (FRA-DIE-10540), Little Village (FRA-DIE-10533), Cottage in the Hills (FRA-DIE-10532) and the Winter Sweater Knit stencil (FRA-STN-018). It also features Santa's Sleigh (FRA-DIE-09622) from a previous release.



The background was created on watercolor paper using Distress Oxide Ink and heat embossing.  If you have any questions please feel free to ask here in the comments or on the Frantic Stamper Facebook Page.

Sketch Saturday


It's time for a new sketch over at Sketch Saturday.  It's a sketch by Kel and it's a good one.  


Our sponsor this week is MMendel Illustrations.


Here's my card.  I took a few liberties with the sketch by turning it upside down and using waves instead of the fiber.  This card features the very cute Little Mermaid.


Why not give the sketch a try this week and share it with us over at Sketch Saturday? 

Aloha,
Brenda

Merry Christmoose!

It's time for challenge #200 over at Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog and we want you to join us.  As always, it's anything goes for a chance to win a LMMS voucher.  Now, you don't have to use a LMMS image, but take a look at this cutie and tell me why you wouldn't want to -

The background was stenciled with Dreamweaver pearlescent embossing paste.  I've added links to the digis I used, but you'll also need to take a look at the new stuff available in the store...all perfect for the the season.

Hope to see you in the linky!  Remember you have 2 weeks to join in the fun.

Digi Do



This week's challenge is a fun one!  Janice chose Digi Do for the theme.  You have probably already figured out, she wants us to use a digital stamp for this challenge.  If you've never used digis before, give it a try.  There a tons of great images out there and many of the designers offer freebies.  

My image today is from The Lovely Studio (use to be Pink Petticoat). I just love this little llama, I love him so much I think I am going to splurge and get the Christmas rendition of him also.  I have to admit to you all that I pretty much CASED this entire card from TLS, I think the sequins are my contribution.  Sometimes when my mojo is slow, that can get things moving...here's my card -


We would love to have you join us this week.  For a treat, take a look at the Girlfriends creations.  Check out the Little Red Wagon and follow their links.  I hope you'll consider joining us this week!

Aloha,
Brenda
