Let it Snow No More

It's still snowing. I'm at 18+ inches in my backyard and still counting. I'm not sure how I'm going to be able to dig my car out. When I went out earlier today to brush it off, the snow around it was well above my knees. There's nowhere to put all of the snow I'm shoveling anymore!

So, with all of the snow everywhere around me, I had to do a snow-themed card sometime today. I made this one based on Mercy's Tuesday sketch challenge. The focal image is a layered snowman image from Verve's Snow Wonderful stamp set. I stamped the image a few times and cut out the different layers of the snowman's body, then assembled it using foam tape. So cute!The hat is accented with some blue Fun Flock.

The patterned papers used on the cardfront are from a DCWV winter stack. I accented the layout with a big felt snowflake with a blue button at the center. The sentment is stamped in the lower left corner in Pacific Point ink to match the cardfront.

Materials Used:
Snow Wonderful stamp set (Verve Stamps); white cardstock (Gina K Designs); Tuxedo Black ink (Memento); markers (Copic); Pacific Point Classic ink, Pacific Point cardstock (Stampin' Up!)' designer paper (DCWV); oval dies (Nestabilities); Enchanted Evening button, twine (Papertrey Ink); felt snowflake (American Crafts); Snowcone Blue Fun Flock (Stampendous); foam tape

And, this card is for the last Viva la Verve sketch challenge for December. I went with a more Valentine's Day themed design here and kept my card pretty clean and simple.

I used the heart border strip in the new Thankful Hearts paper to create my own patterned paper panel, stamping the image repeatedly tone on tone using Rose Red. I attached the panel to a Pink Pirouette card base.

One of the sentiments from Hundred Hearts is stamped in Rose Red on a white panel. I sponged around the edges with pink to soften the white just a bit. The sentiment is layered over a slightly larger Regal Rose panel. I added some lace to the bottom of the panel to complete the card.

Materials Used:
Hundred Hearts and Thankful Hearts stamp sets (Verve Stamps); Rose Red and Pretty in Pink Classic inks, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, and Whisper White cardstock, sponge (Stampin' Up!); lace
