Let It Snow...

Hello Everyone!

I'm back with another project that I made for CHA last month.  This project is full of items from our CHA collections, which will be available in early September.

Karina Rose created the most fabulous 6x6 Winter papers and we've titled the collection pack:  
Frigid Fun.

This paper collection has the most adorable... most chilly... most fun winter patterns that I've seen in a really long time!  The colors are crisp and cool and just make you feel like you need to wrap yourself in a warm blanket by the fire.  I used this paper pack as the back drop in my project and it is just STUNNING!!!

So here is my project...  It is a perfect 8x8 card front that will find itself in a frame on my desk as winter draws nearer here in Michigan.  The project details are below...

Let It Snow

I don't know about you, but I LOVE SNOWMEN!!!  I have sooooooooo many snowmen stamps in my collection but I always want more.  So I'm super duper excited about this Little Darlings 'Caroling Trio' stamp.  I don't think these guys could be any happier or any cuter!  They just look so doggone happy!  Doesn't it make you want to join in and sing with them? 

Now how about that paper?  My favorite pattern is the snow covered trees in blue/white.  It was the inspiration piece for the entire 'Frigid Fun' paper collection.  Behind the snowmen is the cutest pattern of snow boots and mittens that remind me of my childhood when dressing to play outside in the snow.  Brrrrrr....

We also have a coordinating stamp set titled 'Frigid Fun' that showcases many of the pieces in the paper collection.  I used several items from this stamp set on my project:  the Winter Days calendar was stamped, cut out and backed with a matt that I made from the 'Frigid Fun' papers; the 'Let It Snow' sentiment was stamped and punched with a paper punch; and the snowy background behind the snowmen was also stamped from the same set.  Check out the rest of the stamps in the set below:

Thank you all for visiting me today.  I truly enjoyed sharing my 'Frigid Fun' project with you.  I hope I've inspired you in some way :-)

Hugs to you all,

New Collections Preview......

Welcome Everyone!

I'm back with a new project to show you. I made this card with one of the upcoming rubber stamps from the new Saturated Canary collection that was debuted at CHA last month.  

This adorable little toddler is called 'Butterfly Baby' and she will be available to you in rubber in just a few more weeks.  We've had some discussion behind the scenes about whether or not this toddler is a boy or a girl.  I obviously saw her as a 'girl' since I colored her in pink.  But I can certainly see how she could be a 'he' if colored in a more masculine color.  I guess you'll just have to decide for yourself when you begin your project with this little sweetie!

I painted 'Butterfly Baby' with distress inks, which felt really good since it's been a while :-)  Both the sentiment and swirls are from the new and upcoming Warm Fuzzy sentiment set titled 'Everyday Sentiments'.  Now, I know I appear biased, but I REALLY LOVE THE LDRS SENTIMENT SETS!!!!!  The sayings are unique and with funky and fun fonts.  And, we've added these really cool little 'doodles' that you can stamp ALL OVER your project to add extra tidbits of texture and interest.  I did second-generation stamping of the swirl from the 'Everyday Sentiments' set all around the image.  Before adding it, the edges were a bit plain and uninteresting.  Once I added the swirls, they softened the edges and made the image POP!  The sweet and simple sentiment is from the same set and was just perfect for this card.

Do you like the patterned papers???  THEY ARE NEW TOO!  The collection is called 'Petals & Lace' and has 3 GORGEOUS color collections, each with its own vintage patterns to coordinate together.  I used a combo of one shabby pink and one soft grey and they're SO BEAUTIFUL TOGETHER!!!  If you like vintage and shabby chic, then you will ABSOLUTELY NEED THIS PAPER PACK!  It will be available in just a few weeks so stay tuned for our shipping announcement!  Be sure to check with your local or favorite store to see if they will be stocking it!

Well, that is it from me today!  I thoroughly enjoyed making this project and, even more so, showing it to you.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I would love to hear your thoughts on our soon to be released collections!  We're sooooo excited about them!!!

Big hugs to you all!
