Snowbird for TSOT #195

Hello Stampers!

It's been cold and snowy down here in Oklahoma and perfect weather for creating a snow themed card for the Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge Blog.  I loved the sketch for this week also.  

Lots of stamps came to mind, but the cardinal from Beauty Of The Season stamp won my heart!  

Here's my take on this great sketch:

As you can tell, it's not an every day card fold, but it is still an A2 size card.  I made the card base with the Envelope Punch Board and added coordinating layers of card stock, ending with a piece of Nordic Noel designer series paper.
 I colored my image with Cherry Cobbler, Mocha, and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities
 The snowflakes and sequins are from the Frosted Sequins embellishments.  I layered the snowflake atop the large sequin and then topped it off with a small rhinestone.  (Glue dots are my friend) Bling!

 To create my dazzling snowbird, I let my colored image dry well and then I pressed a Versamark pad all over the bird panel, covering it very well.  Then I grabbed my favorite embossing powder in the world, Irredescent Ice,
and sprinkled it over the whole panel and heat set it.  I LOVE this technique!

 And, of course to hold my envelope card together, I needed a cute belly band, and here it is.  Coordinating DSP is so handy and fun to use.  At your fingertips is a world of coordinated colors and patterns.  Love it!

Well, I hope this week's sketch and theme challenge inspire you to get into your stamping space this week and find your winter mojo!  Baby, it's cold outside...  Make the most of it!

Happy Stamping,

Fabulous Four, Christmas Thanks

Hello Stamping Friends,
Just a quick post today as we are heading down south this week for a board game convention called Board Game Geek.  Now, before you get concerned about me, it's my husband who is the game geek in the family, I'm just the stamping obsessed one.  lol   I do, however, enjoy playing a game or two with him just to see if I can beat him.  I'm not competitive or, not me.  haha.  
Onto the card...

This one one of our stamp camp cards last weekend.  Quick and easy, but still eye-catching, too!  
Hope you enjoy.  

Happy Stamping,

Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper is bright and catchy against the Garden Green cardstock, while the Stylish Stripes embossing folder adds just the right amount of texture. 

What a great sketch for any type of card using up lots of scraps, too.

Fabulous Four stamp set is wonderful as a focal point for this quick card, perfectly cropped with the Apothecary Accents Dies, and who doesn't love just a little hint of bling with the Regal Candy Dots

Coffee and Friends for Try Stamping On Tuesday #193

Hello Stamping Friends!
Well, my first design team card for Try Stamping On Tuesday is finally here!  Whoo Hoo!  The sketch this week has lots of visual interest and can be interpreted in different ways, so I challenge you to try it this week and see what you come up with!  

TSOT Sketch 193

As soon as I looked at it my mind immediately went to the Perfect Blend stamp set, and to the Paper Piecing technique.
