Today is my last Friday as guest design member over at La-La Land Crafts. I can’t believe August is already over. Time is just flying by! I had fun with these darling images and you can have too! Check back for more tomorrow.

The challenge today is to create a Winter Themed card. Marcie with  Snowman is the perfect image for that. I stamped her in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut her out and colored her with Copic Markers (Reds: R24, R29, R39   Orange: YR12, YR15, YR18   Yellow: Y11, Y13, Y15   Skin:  E50, E51, E53   Hair: E33, E37, E29   Lips: R01, R02  Carrot: Y17, YR12,  YR15   Scarf: YG00, YG01, YG03  Snow: B0000, B000).

A piece of gorgeous A Girls Paperie Jubilee paper was cut and embossed with the smallest of the Grand Circle Nestabilities die. It was stitched to a slightly bigger (hand-cut) piece of white cardstock. Each line was stitched as well. White Organdy Ribbon was tied around it.

A sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Snow was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of white cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the retired 5 in 1 Tag from Spellbinders.  The center was sponged with Wild Honey Distress ink and small snowflakes from the set were stamped also in Wild Honey over it. The tag was tied to the bow and topped with an orange button with silver curling ribbon.

The patterned paper circle were adhered to the card base, a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, cut and embossed with one of the Scallop Circle Grand Nestabilities dies. Recollection silver half pearls on the patterned paper and Stardust Stickles on the snowman and snowball finish off the card.

The inside of the card was kept very simple. Just a strip of the same paper stitched to another white cardstock circle.

Tonight and tomorrow is Virtual Stamp night over on Splitcoaststampers. It kicks off at 5 p.m. EST! Something on this card was made to fit the first challenge. Just saying!!!

I am out today hanging out with Jenn and Sharon watching Lori teach the Copic Certification class. I hope you have a great day as well! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and smiles
