Stay Cool!


It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week being a brand new month we have a new challenge hostess which is Tosh Leyendekker.

Throughout November Tosh says we are going to be doing a countdown. Since there are four weeks, why don’t we start with four? Logical right? J

So this week our challenge is to use 4 different embellishments (buttons, rhinestones, lace, twine, flowers, etc.)

For my card I used one of MFT Stamps new Pure Innocence stamps which were released yesterday. This cutie is PI – Snowboarding Boy, he looks like he is having fun in all that snow. My 4 embellishments I used are the felt snow, trees, snowflakes and the pearls on the snowflakes.

I decided to create a snow scene. I started with my designer paper, I thought all those white dots looked like it could be snowing Smile. The snow was created using one of MFT Stamps newest die-namics … Die-namics WoNkY Scallop Border with My Favorite Felt – Puff Cloud White.  I added two of the Die-namics Sheltering Tree’s to my card adding glitter glue to the branches to resemble snow. Of course you can’t have a snow scene without some snowflakes so I added the Die-namics Let it Snowflake which I cut from white glitter paper. And finally I added my sentiment which I stamped onto the small ribbon from the Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon.






Here is the inside of my card. I added some more of the designer paper I used on the front which I cut with the Die-namics WoNkY Scallop Border.  I stamped the little boy and a sentiment from the set onto my card.
