Got Snowflakes?

Ever since I saw this fabulous shaped card by my friend Sarah,
I wanted to make one, too. Sarah loves making shaped cards as much as I do.

I bought the stamp when it was Hero Arts' Stamp of the Week--did you?--picked up 
the matching die and the fun began.

 After inking up the stamp, I spritzed it with water and then stamped it 
for a watercolored look. The sentiments are from a discontinued Hero Arts set.

I also stamped a few snowflakes without spritzing, but I like the melty snowflake look.
The snowflakes are a nice size and can be either a card or a tag.
And being "scissors impaired", I'm getting quite spoiled with stamps
that have matching dies!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!

CASE Study Challenge #118

I'm joining my first CASE Study Challenge! I follow Chupa and her work
always amazes me. I "know" some of the muses that were spotlighted,
but I've never entered a challenge. Until now.

When I saw Angeline Yong's fun and fabulous card, I couldn't resist.

And when I saw the CASE of her own card, I was in. Here's my card.

I pulled out my Reverse Wonky Rectangles dies, and I even made a glittery bird. 
But I think I need some Glitter Ritz to get the velvety texture which I sorely missed.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Here's a card featuring Berry from Stacey Yacula's Sweetest Season collection.

Berry was colored with Copics and turned into a Polaroid. I attached it to a woodgrain embossed card base and tied some coordinating ribbon. Isn't he the sweetest?

You can find Berry and the rest of the Sweetest Season at Purple Onion Designs.

A washi Christmas tree

Paper Crafts November 2012 Challenge is to use washi tape on your project and 
I wanted to join in and dehoard my stash of tapes.

After covering a piece of cardstock with different shades of green washi tape,
I diecut PTI's christmas tree and attached it to kraft cardstock that was stamped with
Hero Arts' woodgrain stamp. I added a few gems, a washi tape star, and the sentiment
is from Paper Smooches.

I entered this just under the wire--tomorrow is the deadline!
