Thanks for the Snow

Ah a snow day!  Reason to celebrate because I have more time to play in the snow.  Although truthfully, I chose to stay inside and play with my crafting supplies and color a snowman!  That still counts as playing in "the snow", right???!!!

Ingredients:  Stamps - MFT Thanks Snow Much
Dies - YNS Whatnots Seasons (snowflake)
Ink - Memento and SU, Paper - PTI, Button - PTI

I have a huge pile of kraft paper that has been neglected lately so I decided to pull it out and add a little warmth for the white to sit on.  My card is based on the latest MFT sketch, challenge #213.  I gave the sketch a flip, but otherwise stuck very true to it!

Thanks for stopping by!
Smiles, Julie

Mad Science

Challenge #5 is up and running on the Your Next Stamp Blog.

I took my inspiration from the colors for this one....teals and grays with a touch of black.

Now I know you may be tired of seeing me pair up the YNS Perfect Chemistry Set with the Talk Bubbles die set, but I just don't care.  I think the two were meant to be paired together and that is THAT!


My sister was sweet enough to buy me some chalkboard paper, so I figured it was time I give that trend a try.  I used a white pencil to add some chalk dust and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.  

Here is the sketch and color combo for challenge #5:

Thanks for stopping by.  You still have a week to join in the fun, so be sure to play along!

Rolling Along

This month's Your Next Stamp Design Team Dare is to create a CAS project using red and white.


 The CAS part did not scare me, but the limited color palate was a little intimidating.  Especially because I really wanted to play with the new set Keep on Trucking!  The truck is full of hearts that were stamped using the tiny heart in the Kup Toppers stamp set.  The truck is chugging up a hill created using the new Spring/Summer Scene die set .   The final touch was a little faux stitching around the sentiment which was created with the Stitched Line Die.

Stop on by the YNS Blog to see everything else the team created using all the newly released stamps and dies.  Plus your comment on the YNS Blog may just make you a winner!!!

Smiles,
Julie
