Winter Time

A friend gave me these little stamps to make a scene card and I've had more fun with them! (Thank you Lynn!)

Today starts the last Craft Rocket Challenge for 2016. We all agreed it would be good to take part of December off for Christmas with family and friends.

Today's theme is Winter Time. Living in Florida, this snow is completely fabricated, but I can use my imagination, ha!

These stamps have all been removed from their original wood backing so I can't give a company credit. My little deer in the foreground is a die cut.

The blue cardstock is from my handmade stock. Inside says Merry Christmas so I have another card for my collection.

Be sure to stop by CRC to get more ideas from the design team. And I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. See you again in 2017!

Blessings, Barbara

White on White

Goodness, another challenging theme to work with! Craft Rocket Challenges starts a new theme today and it is White on White, with only the main image colored.

I searched for a picture of a poinsettia flower, sketched it and painted with watercolors. I die cut using a solid plate and cut out the diamond in the middle then tore a piece of white handmade card stock to use as the immediate frame.

I like to have a sentiment on the front so rather than use ink, I found love in a embossing folder and cut it out to mount in the corner. I used Stickles on the flower to add some sparkle and Perfect Pearl Mists on the entire card (after covering the center) for some shine. This will be used as another Christmas card.

Come and check out what all the design team did and play along!

When we left Yellowstone this year it had already snowed in the higher elevations twice. But back home in Florida, not so much, ha!

Unicorn Challenges has a new theme for November called Snowflakes or Snow Theme. I chose to make a few tags for Christmas gifts and this one fit the theme perfectly. Come and join in on the fun and check out the DT cards.

This was made using gold embossing powder with a Mark's Finest Papers Snowflake stamp on white cardstock. It's mounted on a piece of cut and pressed green handmade paper from my stash.

Have fun and think cool weather thoughts!
