BLOGGERS CHALLENGE #76 - Bashful Blue, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Close to Cocoa

























Season Greetings! I made this card with TWO sets that I designed for this weeks challenge. (The Snowflakes stamp set AND the Winter at Home stamp set) This week's Bloggers Challenge is a color challenge! We are to use the colros Bashful Blue, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango and Close to Cocoa along with our choice of vanilla or white - well SU's DP Ski Slope lends itself right into this challenge, doesn't it? In fact, I would venture to bet that MANYof the challenge participants have used this DP! Now watch, I will go look and only a small handful will have used it. LOL That will show me, eh?

I also couldn't resist using the Technique Junkies newsletter for the "technique" of this card. They have a whole series of "frame tutorials." I used the one featured by Kathy McGuire called Torn Frames.




















Here is a close up of the image! Do you see the sparkle on the FELT SNOWFLAKES? Well a quick FYI - I used Dazzling Diamonds along with my 2 way glue pen to get it to sparkle. It is VERY messy and I sparkle from head to toe now and it isn't my personality! LOL (well maybe it is? lol)

Here are the details on this project:
Stamp Sets: Snowflake and Winter at Home (my designs) at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, bashful Blue, Whisper White, Ski Slope DP
Ink: Black Brilliance, Copics
Accessories: Buttons - holiday ones from Hobby Lobby, Soft Subtle, Mini Glue Dots, 2 way glue pens, Dazzling Diamonds, Felt Snowflakes, Glue Dots, Craft Knife, Distressing Tool

Thank you for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!

gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Wow, that is just stunning!

I got your reply to my post about the cooking...did you find it difficult to do the monthly cooking for yourself (without your friends)? I'd love to try it sometime...not sure if I could with two toddlers in the house....
