Well the weather warmed up for a couple days and the temperature is dipping again!  Seems like Old Man Winter is not leaving anytime soon.   All that snow outside prompts me thinking about Frosty - the snowman!  Yup!!  And Frosty is the theme of the current Playing in Paradise challenge #9.

And I also will enter my card to the current Die Cut Diva's Challenge - Make it Glitter.

So here's my card:

To make this card, I first stamped Hero Art's Stunning Snowflakes on acetate with Cotton White StazOn ink.  Then I dry embossed it with Tim Holtz Alterations Snowman #3 embossing folder so that the stamped images are on the backside.  Then I placed the StazOn stamp pad directly on the raised part to ink it.  Then I added Crystal Stickles to my Frosty's top hat, and part of the snowflakes. 

To assemble my card, I inked a scalloped card with Chipped Sapphire to make a snowy ground.  I creased the top and attached the acetate to the card using Vellum Adhesive.  Tied blue twine and attached a blue snowflake brad covered with Crystal stickles.

This will be my first Christmas card of 2014.  One of the members of the Canadian Stamp Talk group is challenging us to make Christmas every month and there's a theme to each month.  January is Embossing.  So I am playing along with this card.  Go check out her blog, SMD Paper Arts, and details of the challenge here.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful weekend up ahead!

A little dream for Case Study and Die Cut Divas

Hello my crafty friends: 

Hope you're enjoying the weekend!  Today I share a card I CASEd for the CASE Study Challenge #173.  Also I'd like to enter it to the current Die Cut Diva's Challenge: Make it Glitter.

Here's the beautiful card by Donna:

Here's my take:

It took me quite a bit of time to pass the small butterfly die (by Impression Obession) to make the multi colour butterflies, but I think it's worth it!!  I really like how it turned out.  Ranger Stickles (Crystal) is added to the butterfly.  Sentiment is by Stampology.  I rendered the letters with colour pencils.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a dreamy day!!  :)
