Sending You Flurries of Warm Wishes

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing another card I made as a guest designer for Pink & Main.



These beautiful snowflakes and the sentiment are from the Flurries set.  I cut a panel of Bristol paper and stamped the snowflakes with Versamark ink.  I used white embossing powder and heat embossed the snowflakes.  Next I sponged distress oxide inks in Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio, flicked on water, and then dried the panel with a paper towel.  I stamped the sentiment on a strip of vellum and heat embossed it also.  I wrapped the ends of the vellum around the Bristol panel before adhering it to my cardbase.  Lastly, I added a few sequins to give the card a little bit of sparkle.  This set includes so many pretty snowflakes so be sure to stop by the shop and check it out! 

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulous week!

Hugs, Anita

Mrs Claus

Good morning!  As I mentioned earlier this month, I'm doing some guest design work for Pink & Main and I have another fun Christmas card to share.


These sweet stamps are from the Nice List set.  There are other images included in this set so be sure to stop by the shop and check it out!  I colored Mrs Claus and her little elf with copics and then diecut them using the coordinating Nice List Dies.  I used a black glaze pen on Mrs Claus' eyes and added Glossy Accents to her glasses.  I added some Glamour Dust to their hats and the elf's lollipop.  I adhered all the images with foam tape for some added dimension.  The pretty striped paper is from the Jolly 6x6 paper pad.  I finished my card by adding a few enamel dots.
