Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Sunday, 13 November 2011
Good evening all. I can't believe that we're already back at Sunday evening again.  There's a question going round on Facebook at the moment that asks you what button in life would you most like to press.  I opted for the Pause button so that I could have more time to do all the things that need doing, as well as the things that I would really like to do.  I don't just mean craft or bake, but spend more time with the people that mean the most to you and appreciate things more as it won't be around forever.  What I wouldn't give for the pause button right now to delay the inevitable Monday morning alarm.

I'm slowly starting to get my stamps catalogued (and I mean slowly).  I think it's going to take me a very long time to get there so I just have to spend an hour at a time at least working on it.

I managed to have some crafty time this weekend and made a couple of cards.  I'm going to show one tonight and I made it specifically for the Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge which is Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow. I've used one of my new Humphrey stamps and this one is Mistletoe Kisses and coloured him in with Copics and the fur trim glittered with Glamour Dust.  This is also a shaker card to make it look like its snowing, although the main photo doesn't really show it.

 The card is a base layer of Real Red CS from Stampin Up with a white layer of CS that has been embossed with snow dots embossing folder before having a whole cut out with a circle nestie.  The circle plastic shaker layer is placed in here with the little shaker bits and the image stuck on the back.  The frame is cute from Real Red CS using a scalloped and circle nestie.  I've finished off with some punched snowflakes gems and a sentiment.

I think in the close up you can just make out the little shaker pieces.
Supplies:
Stamp: Humphrey Mistletoe Kisses - Crafters Companion; Ink: Copics and Memento Tuxedo Black
CS: Real Red - Stampin Up; Tools: Circle & Scallop nesties, Snow Dots embossing folder, Shaker case, Martha Stewart Punch;
Embellishments: Gems, Pearls, Sentiment, Glamour Dust - stash

I was really pleased with how this turned out although I think I still need to practise with my red copics a bit more.

I'm also entering this into the following challenges:

Stamptacular Sunday - Punch it!
2 Sisters - Anything Goes
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Stamp that's never seen ink
Crafters Companion - Let it Snow
