Snow!


Today I had fun making a card using Newton's Nook stamp set - Sweater Weather.
I think the whole set is so cute!
Sadly, the photo doesn't show all the sparkly glitter I used.

I used Distress Inks for the soft sky, A-Muse dies for the hills of snow, and an old
Stampin Up set for the snowballs.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Inky Paws Challenge #112 - Theme Snow Day

2 Crafty Critters Crazies - December Challenge

Crafty Animals - Challenge #33


Cards 4 Guys - #234 Christmas Critters

The next challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations - 

THEME: Ephemera & Use Your Stash

And since I had to look up the meaning of Ephemera - here is what I found:

e·phem·er·a
/əˈfem(ə)rə/

noun
  1. things that exist or are used or enjoyed for only a short time.
    • items of collectible memorabilia, typically written or printed ones, that were originally expected to have only short-term usefulness or popularity

    On my card I layered card stock and pieces and parts from a scrapbook pack I have.  I love the vintage look of these and had fun putting the pieces together for a card.

Hop over to the challenge blog and see what the Design Team has come up with.


Crafty Sentiments Designs  is providing 3 digital images to our randomly chosen winner.

An exciting week over at Cupcake Inspirations!  
That's because I got to make my cards for this challenge with Newton's Nook Designs!
I LOVE their cats and other critters!

I used Newton's stamp set: Sweater Weather and their Plaid Stencil. SO CUTE!
I even reused the rust string (see above) that my stamps were mailed to me tied up with!
Now that's recycling! LOL
