Perhaps you are more self-discipled than I am, but sometimes I need to take a break from making cards and go visiting other blogs and then what happens is I'll see
So I went playing:
For my card, I used another one of the dies from the "Distressed Holiday Collage" set that I used in my last post. This corner die is one of two snowflake dies in the set. I embossed the white panel using a Sizzix snowflake e/f and then I cut out the peace sediment using a die from Winnie & Walter. That, of course, smashed my snowflakes, so if I were me, next time I would do all the die-cutting before the embossing.
The black underskirt is a glittered foam paper. You can just make out the schparkle if you look closely. I attached a gold snowflake brooch to the bodice and we're done here.
Snowflake Challenges: TIME OUT, Simon Says Wednesday, Virginia's View, and CAS-ual Fridays.
But wait, I thought. I might as well make a card using the remaining die in the corner set, this one in the shape of an ornament:
For my card, I used four individual and ancient stamps placed in a row like in Kate's design, with a sediment placed under the images. These critters are from the All Night Media stamp set, "Holiday Snowglobe".
The sediment is from MFT "Stitched Stockings." I stamped it using the baby wipe ink pad technique. (You use reinkers in drops on a few layers of baby wipes; there are videos on YouTube.) It was my first time doing that and I thank Sue Rose for the inspiration.
And then what happened was, I happened to see that a very lovely color challenge is closing down. I'm sorry to see that happen. It is Colour Me ...! and I made this shaker card as a thank you for all the past challenges and hard work by the DT:
Now I have to go teach those hamster babies how to forge my signature ...
