WOW! I can't believe I just stumbled upon the challenge at
I got hooked on Cheery Lynn Designs dies after using them in a workshop at my friend Joan Fricker's (Joan's Gardens) a year or so ago. These dies are awesome! If you're not familiar with them, you really must give them a try ... then you'll be hooked just like me! LOL!!
Anyways, back to the challenge. This week it is "SNOWFLAKES".
I LOVED making this card because it gave me the opportunity to not only use my Cheery Lynn Designs DL175 Laced Pine Snowflake die ... but also my DL143 Ornamental Wreath & Bow and B136 Anastasia Border dies.
How much fun is it to use NEW CRAFTING GOODIES! My focus image also came from Joan's Gardens last fall and this was the first time I inked it up! I love vintage and this Old World Santa by LaBlanche seemed perfect for today's creation.
My image was stamped using Versafine Black ink onto white cardstock. I used a little loose chalk and makeup applicators to give him 'rosey' cheeks and also for the blue shadowing around the edge. My snowflakes were cut from DCWV blue sparkle paper and white cardstock. A scrap of green designer paper was used to cut out the wreath and red cs for the bow. Diamond Stickles was used to accent the edges of the white snowflake (hard to see in photo) as well as the bow.
Thanks for letting me share some of my new crafting goodies with you as well as this fun challenge. Wishing you a fabulous week with tons of time to PLAY!
