FEATURED VIDEOS

 

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Welcome to the Mod Squad Challenge for this month of December.  It's Barb and I will be your host this week.  The weather is a bit chillier here this month.  Not quite ready for the snow in my yard, but on a card...... That is just fine. 
So here is my challenge. 


TREES AND SNOW!

I want to see trees and snow on your card.  Make sure that both of these are on your project.  Not so bad, right?

This Weeks Sponsor is Gina K Designs

My Card
I had a lot of fun doing this card.  All paper is from Gina K, the only paper that I use when not water coloring.  The trees are from two stamp sets, Christmas Wishes and the new kit, Home for the Holidays.  Love these trees and they are so easy to work with.  I did masking, sponging, stamping, and embossing.  I can tell you more about it on my blog

Angie's Card



My card's sparkle comes from the glitter card stock I used to mat the panels and Wink of Stella!
 I used  Great Impressions Snow Adorable stamp (E774), Great Impressions Peeking Puppy (C497), Great Impressions Wishes and Sparkles (F312).  I heat embossed and colored both images with Zig Clean Color markers and a water brush, then added the brick wall with a stencil.  I cut a stitched snowflake border above the snowman with a die, then cut silver glitter card stock to mat both brick pieces on, then added that cute peeking puppy over the wall.  I added a little of Wink of Stella for even more sparkle!
