The Shabby Tea Room- Winter Picnic

* This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down to see my Prickely Pear Rubber Stamps project for this week.

Hi everyone, and happy Monday to you all! I hope those of you in the US enjoyed your long holiday weekend with special loved ones. I sure did. It was absolutely wonderful to sleep in, eat and eat and eat, and spend extra time with my two kiddos. The kids and I were really wild, and went to see a movie every day. I know, I know…….that’s crazy business….

But we enjoyed every minute. πŸ™‚

Today I am excited to share my last project as guest designer for The Shabby Tea Room this month. I’ve had such fun playing along with my old team again. Debbie really does have some fabulous challenges. This week’s theme, Winter Picnic, is to create a winter-themed project using the colors white, cream, silver, and glitter, inspired by this lovely photo.

Here is my card.

I really love working with neutrals, and adore the look of white mixed with cream, so this challenge was right up my alley. Love that this color palette is very soothing and calming to the eye, yet can still be quite interesting when you add in lots of visual texture and subtle variations in tone.

Kept my card crisp and clean and brought in interest through texture and layering. Embossed snowflakes add a subtle pattern to the background. A mix of trims from crocheted lace to rough twill to smooth satin add a ton of visual texture against the cardstock base. Added in some sparkly glittered stars and shiny bells for a touch of holiday glam.

Hope you’ll stop by the Shabby Tea Room blog to see what the design team has created for you and then, play along. A huge thank you to Debbie for having me this month. I’ve had a ton of fun playing in the Tea Room again!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon. It’s a busy week here on the blog, so do stop back. We’ve got a new challenge launching today on the LESSology blog, and I’ll have a little holiday tutorial on Wednesday for The Kraft Journal.Β  Plus something for Epiphany Crafts, too. And for more craftiness today, just scroll down to see my Prickely Pear Rubber Stamps project for the week.

Wishing you a wonderful day!
