Baby It's Cold Outside!!


I know I said I was going to show you my other VSN winning card, but I'm so excited about this one....I changed my mind!! A girl's allowed to do that, right???

The sketch challenge this week on SCS is a great one, so if you haven't used it yet, give it a whirl. For this card I got to play with my new Christmas in the City stamp set that I won in the Lizzie Anne contest on Lindsey's blog!! I inked it up for the first time this week and stamped this cute little snowman on Shimmery White paper in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink. I watercoloured the image using my Aquapainter and my SU inks. Then I remembered that Jeanne posted a 'Just Because We Wanna' challenge to add glitter and sparkles to your card, so I decided to try out the Dazzling Diamond Dust technique. I had forgotten that I even had the supplies to do this.....can you believe that??? Hahaha!! So I pounced my Versamark pad all over the focal image, sprinkled my Iridescent Ice embossing powder all over it and heated it up with my heat tool. What a simple technique but what a gorgeous effect!! I'm totally doing that one again....soon!!

So I matted it on Pretty in Pink and then Bashful Blue which matches the patterned papers I used from the Winter Bright SU kit. I stamped the snowflakes on the Wild Wasabi card base and sponged everything. I added some pink Taffeta ribbon and stamped the sentiment on there by just inking up each word or set of words separately and then stamping them where I wanted them on the paper. I also got to use my new Martha Stewart snowflake punch (for which I used a 40% off coupon on at Michael's) and punched out two snowflakes from some white Sugarcoated cardstock and added a pink rhinestone in the middle of each one. I pop dotted the main image and there ya go.....a non-traditional Christmas card or just a winter notecard....you choose!!

Tomorrow I will be featuring another Kool Krafter....any guesses as to who she is???

And don't forget, you still have a couple of days to enter my Sketch Challenge #1!! Have a great weekend everyone!!!
