Snow Family

Blue Snow Family

Snow FamilyHello, here is my card for the latest challenge over at C.R.A.F.T.  We are having Christmas as our theme, as we do once a month, as a way of trying to help you get the jump on making Christmas cards. We have the generous PaperNest Dolls as our sponsor this time :)

I have used the adorable Snow Family image, kindly supplied to me by the sponsor for my DT project.  I colored the family up with my Prismacolors, then added some Wink of Stella to the bodies, and some glitter to the background.  I cut the image out with a nesting die, matting it with a bigger version of the same die.  I had a scrap of the blue snowflake paper in my stash, that coordinated perfectly.  I used a corner punch to put the snowflakes in the corners, then used the punch again on the dark blue base paper, and sprinkled the punch-outs around the card.  Some fluffy and sparkly yarn, and a few bows finish this card off :)

I’d like to enter this into the following challenges:

 I was given Sailor Owen to work with for my DT project, and chose to go with the traditional red, white and navy color scheme.  After coloring the image with my SN markers, I cut a cloud shaped top, then inked in some clouds for a background.  I have been hoarding this nautical paper for a while, and this was the perfect card to use it on!! I just received this Memory Box die in the mail…talk about good timing!!  I layered it with a bit of cheesecloth, then grabbed on of the wooden anchor embellishments that I snagged at Michael’s in the $1.50 bins :)

I used Ballerina Emma, and colored her up with my SN markers. Yesterday it was feeling very spring like here (today, not so much, with about 6″ of snow overnight), so I used soft pastel colors. I used scraps from 2 different paper collections, and cut the number 4 out with my Cricut. I used a die from Elizabeth Craft  for the bunting. Pink ribbon bows, some yellow flowers, a Brad and glitter glue pulled everything together, ready for the fussy cut image to dance onto the card :)

SunshineI was given Ice Cream Avery from the PaperNest Dolls to work with.   I colored this little cutie up with my SN markers, then fussy cut her out.  After assembling a sunburst background, made with shimmer and plain yellow CS, I added a curved border with a stamped sentiment.  I placed Avery , then added a glitter circle “sun” – and THOUGHT I was finished!!  However, my darling pup decided to help, and got his grubby little nose all over this project while he was checking out what he could fix on the card.   So, I had dirty little doggy nose smudges in a few places :(  The image was pretty firmly adhered, so I had to figure out a fix.   I re-cut some of the sun rays, and patched over some of the marks, but there was an obvious smudge on the bottom white part…..I covered it up with an ice cream brad….which bothers me to no end, because I liked the clean white portion….I guess an ice cream fits the mood better than dog nose marks :)
