Let It Snow

A warm Hello to you.  We got out first snow yesterday that has actually stayed on the ground so thought I would do a Let It Snow Card.

I have used the Square Classic - Silver Stackers  and  the Square Scalloped LG Stackers for my base. I was going for black and white but then decided to add just a touch of blue to set it off. I love the layers these stackers create.

Here I used  white paint and a tooth brush to splatter snow on black cardstock. It makes a perfect snowy  background to layer the Let It Snow  onto. This was a quick and simple card if you are short of time.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and for the comments you leave. Have a crafty day my friends.

Joy To The World

A warm Hello to you. It's Debbie back with you from Debbie's Time Out.Today I would like to share with you a way of using the Aspen Forest  frame from Cheery Lynn Designs as a embossing folder.

For the base of the card I used the Aspen Forest  on foil paper. To emboss it instead of cutting it I place a rubber embossing mat on top of the paper and it embosses instead of cutting. I then just added metal embossing powders  in copper, silver and gold and heat set them. I then added a bit of black ink to tone it down. What a beautifully embossed background this die made.

Here I layered the deer from the Fancy Reindeer set. The Joy To The World sentiment is one of the dies from the Joy to the World Wreath set. A piece of ribbon was layered along the bottom. This was a quick and simple  card for anyone wanting quick cards to give to that special person. I hope I have encouraged you to play with some of your dies to emboss with as well as cut with.

Thank You for visiting my blog today and for the comments you leave. They are always appreciated.

A warm Hello to you. This is a card I made for the Cheery Lynn Designs inspirational blog.

The other day I was playing with a new Penny Black scenic stamp that I bought at a crop I was at last weekend. So this is the stamped scene that makes my background. As I was thinking about what do o for your inspiration I thought of this card I had previously stamped and thought how nice the new Cheery Lynn snowman would look in the scene.  He is absolutely perfect for this scene..

I popped  Patches the Snowman  up with foam spacers giving the card some dimension. I cut him in white and then his hat in black and then again in red for his hat band and scarf. I used some CTMH markers to add colors to all the beautiful stitching details on him.  I layered the Holly Corner  to the top corner and added some red glitter to the berries. I triple matted the card using the Rectangle Stitch and Cut tool  set . What a beautiful card stamped images and die cuts can make when using them together.

I thank you for visiting my blog today and for the comments you leave. Have a wonderful crafty day my friends.
