Hi stampers and Happy Tuesday! Is everyone ready for turkey day yet? Know how you can tell that it's Thanksgiving time at our house??? Because there are SIX packages of cream cheese in the refrigerator! LOL! I always make this awesome pumpkin pie cheesecake for at least one of our dinners so that's two packages and now my hubby has this obsession with red velvet cheesecake he found and it takes FOUR cream cheeses between the cake and the icing, hahaha! He's totally stealing my cheesecake thunder as it's my THING for family dinners but whatever. I told him I WAS doing the pumpkin cheesecake no matter what:-)
Anyway, since it's Tuesday that means it's time for a new challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments. This week's challenge is WINTER WONDERLAND!
This one is right up my alley! I can't wait to break out the tree and decorations of Friday! I have to work Friday and Saturday but I hope I can find the time to deck the halls!!! So, break out all your glitter and bling and make your own winter wonderland! Here's a little bit of inspiration to get you started:
Stamps: Sweet Snowglobe, Christmas greetings, distressed dots
Paper: Whisper white, garden green, real red, bashful blue
Ink: Garden green, real red, bashful blue
Accessories: Circle punches, scallop circle punch, dotted scallop border punch, window sheets, basic pearls, snow burst embossing folder, mica flakes, vanilla smooch spritz, dazzling details, shaker frames
The snowglobe stamp (um, which I totally forgot was in the current catalog, duh) is just perfect for a winter wonderland scene AND to use with the shaker frames! I've been wanting to make a card using these things for a while! Just be careful not to over fill with the mica flakes, a little pinch goes a long way! It won't look right or shake well with too much "snow". My embossed panel is smooched although it doesn't show up in the photo and I outlined all the scallops with dazzling details. This was a little trick I saw in my plus fun class at convention and need to do it more often!
So, now head on over to HSS and check out the rest of the winter wonderlands and then put the turkey preparations aside for a few and play along with us!
