Let It Snow!!

I couldn't resist making a card based on winter after I had seen the DP I used on the card in a scrapbook store!

This card was made for High Hopes Challenge #55. It was made according to the layout for this challenge.The CS used in the background is a textured Bazzill CS I found in a local scrapbook store. The DP I used has glitter on it, as well as the verse "Winter Wonderland". The eskimo and seal were colored with Copic Sketch pens, and artificial snow was used for the eskimo and seal to "sit" on. In the scalloped circle used as a background behind the seal and eskimo I was certain to use a DP with snow falling. In the upper Left corner of the card front are 2 snowflakes, with small "bling" in the center of both of them. Dew Drops were used in the upper Right corner of the card's front. The verse on the front is also a High Hopes stamp.

Inside of the card, I used a DP that has snowmen printed on one side, and snowflakes printed on the reverse side. The ribbon I placed at the top and the bottom of the snowman print has a small amount of glitter in the center of the snowflakes. On the side of the DP with snowflakes, I placed 3 "bling" snowflakes of a dark blue color so they would stand out.

BRRR!! After making this card, I think I will have a cup of hot tea or cocoa to drink!!

Ho, Ho, Ho!!

WOW!! I haven't been on for such a long time due to things that had to be done!! SORRY!!

This image is for the High Hopes Stamps Challenge #54. Santa is coming down the chimney!
I colored the images of Santa and the presents with Copic pens; and trimmed around the circle template from Nestabilities, leaving part of the image outside of the circle. Artificial snow with glitter was used on the roof. Copic #B000 was used to add some color to the rim of the circle. Ribbon used around the top of the card is a sheer white ribbon with some glitter in it. The green ribbon used was used to accentuate the green in the Basic Grey Designer Paper behind the image.

Inside of the card, I kept snowy scenes. The Designer Paper is Basic Grey. On the upper section, I put white CS, with the snow with glitter on it. I continued to use the artificial snow on the trees that were punched out of dark green CS. The paper on this square has small images of Santa with a reindeer on it, along with images of children dressed for cold weather.

The paper used in the lower square has a winter scene of houses with Christmas trees and bare trees. The quote is a High Hopes quote. Paper behind the quote was punched with the Martha Stewart "loopy" punch.

Stay warm and enjoy!!
