Hi everyone and happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We had some crazy days here at our house, but it was wonderful, nonetheless. Pete finally had his very belated 16th birthday party sleepover, which was long overdue from this past September. And then as soon as the house cleared, Nik brought in her friends for her turn at a sleepover. Now it’s finally quiet in the house, and I feel like I need a whole new weekend to recover from my weekend. :)
Today is time for a new challenge at The Kraft Journal. This week’s theme is Let It Snow.
I absolutely adore snowmen, so I took advantage of our snowy theme to ink up my new Lawn Fawn stamps, Making Frosty Friends and Frosties. Lawn Fawn is our product partner this week on the Glue Arts blog, so you will be seeing more of these cuties from me coming up soon. As a matter of fact, I love them so much, I’m going to have a hard time leaving these guys alone!
Started my card with a base of patterned paper and added a layer of Buff Ivory Coverweight Cardstock followed by Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock. I stamped two different snowflakes from the Frosties set in pearlescent sky blue Brilliance ink on the kraft to create my own patterned paper with a metallic finish. Edged the kraft cardstock with white paint and then stitched the layers together for some extra detailing. Added pleated twill and White Twill Tying Tape across the card along with a vintage button and a glittered chipboard snowflake.
Stamped the two snowmen from Making Frosty Friends on a separate piece of Buff Ivory Cardstock and trimmed them out. Colored their carrot noses and coal buttons with Prisma pencils and gave them a light wash of blue-gray color around their edges to give them an icy feel. Paper pieced their scarves using Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and then tucked the snowmen behind the trim. For the sentiment, I layered an American Crafts Flair button on a Round Metal Edged Grungy Prim Tag and added them both to the center of the chipboard snowflake.
