Let It Snow

Hi guys!  Thanks to all who voted for me in the Practical Scrappers Card Making Contest - I made it to the Top 5, which is good when you think I started out in a group of 40.  Congrats to the girls who made it in the Top 3!  And I've got to announce the winner of the MyMemories Giveaway - Janet!  I emailed you. 

Now that I've got all my business taken care of, hehe....I can show you some of my latest cards.  As you know I'm now on the Inspired By Stamping Design Team and Joanna designs the most incredible stamps.  You've got to visit her blog and see all the tutorials and inspiration there!  Amazing.  I've been playing with her stamp set Winter Wonderland and I love it!  Visit the Inspired by Stamping Shop to see all of her stamps. 

Here's my first card.  I'm entering it in the following challenges:
1. Really Reasonable Ribbon #35
2. Winter Wonderland Challenge - Make your card sparkle.
3. Jelly Park - Non traditional Christmas colors challenge.

For this card I used small snowflakes and stamped them the same color as my paper.  I then added touches of Stickles to make my snowflakes sparkle.  My silver snowflakes are K and Co. and my lace is Really Reasonable Ribbon

My next card is for the following challenges:
1. A Gem of a Challenge 33 - Cold and Frosty
2. Digi Doodle Shop Challenge 81
3. The Paper Shelter Challenge 38 - Christmas Fun

Decided to go all vintage on this one and I tried a technique.  I took a paper towel (a sponge would have been easier, but I had paper towels on hand!) and sponged white ink onto the areas of the card I wanted to stamp with snowflakes.  I then let the white ink dry and stamped those areas with the snowflakes in darker ink.  My musical paper, candy cane, ribbon and bell are all Etsy. 

And last but not least, this little card. 
1. Paperminutes - Blue & White
2. Stamp Insanity Challenge 79 - Chill Out

 I simply stamped my white snowflakes onto dark cardstock.  I then traced areas of my snowflakes with Stickles.  Easy as can be! 

So there you have it, one stamp set with 3 different cards and completely different looks.  I've gotta tell you, the pink one is my favorite.  Who wouldn't like checking their mail and getting a pink "snowy" card!
