Ready, Set, Snow!

Not too long ago, I joined a group of card blogging gals aptly named…Card Crazy Chicks! There’s a category on the menu bar with the same name, if you click on it there’s a list of 19 talented gals with great card making blogs! Be sure to visit every one! 😀

It’s Tanja’s turn to host the card challenge and she had a sketch (and you all know how much I love sketch challenges! LOL). Be sure to visit Tanja’s blog to get all the deets!

Here’s her sketch:

Here’s what I came up with:

WAHOO! Did I tell you that my Big Shot arrived from SU! a couple of days ago??? So…my 7 sets of Nesties and 7 Cuttlebug Embossing Folders now can be used! LOL (I bought them on sale and wanted to be prepared in the event of a Cuttlebug Emergency whatever that may be!) So for the past couple of days, I’ve been cranking out good things and well…more of the not so good things. I’m still getting the hang of it but it’s a little overwhelming with all the options I can now do on top of everything else! So many embellies so little time! Hey…do we really need sleep anyways?

Back to the card, I ran the Whisper White cardstock with the Heidi Grace Shimmer paper through the Snowflake Cuttlebug together so that they overlapped and fit quite nicely! I had a ball running through the bits of Bazzill Bling using a couple of circle Nesties and embossed them too. Then I had lightly painted on Angel Wing Shimmerz over the Whisper White to give it a wispy blowing snow feel. Over the raised areas on the Whisper White, I took the Glacier Blue Opalite Reinker by Tsukineko and painted it. (Yes, I have done this before, it’s one that gives the paper an opalescent blue shimmer)

I had to jog the center circle off to the left a little to accommodate the bow. The images were mounted with 3D Dots which is difficult to see the extra dimension. I really enjoy these stamp sets by The Cat’s Pajamas, they’re cute and lots of fun! This is surely not the last time you’ll see them!

Card Composition:
Paper – Bazzill Bling, Snow Dreams (Heidi Grace), Whisper White (SU!)
Stamps – Candyland Christmas (The Cat’s Pajamas), Deck the Hall (The Cat’s Pajamas)
Ink – Not Quite Navy (SU), Koh-I-Noor & OMS, Glacier Blue (Opalite)
Embellishments – Snowflakes (Cuttlebug), Circles (Nestabilities), Glitter Pen (Sakura), Flourish Ribbon, Angel Wings (Shimmerz), Felt Snowflakes

Wow, can you really believe it’s Friday? Those of you out there that are headed for Black Friday scrap deals, let me know, k?? I think there’s a Scor-Pal with my name out there somewhere!!

If you enjoy my blog, please pass it on and tell ’em Spike sent you! 😉 Thanks so much for dropping by!
