Post 5: I love the crispness of winter. For me it evokes the winding down of the year, being inside a little more, snuggling under blankets and fires in the fireplace. I know it’s a bit early to be thinking about, but it does make me happy.

Here’s a wintery card sent to me by Lori. It was actually something she made earlier, I just didn’t get a chance to post it. I’m loving the white embossed lines instead of the usual dark stamped lines – really adds a lovely wintery touch.

Lori said that she stamped and embossed on watercolor cardstock and colored with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens. Just look at all that shimmer!!home-for-christmas-closeup-lori-barnettx

Alex stamped this fun little wintery scene earlier this month. While here in California we’ve been enjoying a little bit of rain intermixed with some sunshine, Alex sent me this picture…


She said when she woke up and looked outside her window this was the view!!! She said that the beginning of March brought snow while back in December they were able to wear t-shirts. Good grief! I told her it was a beautiful view and now someday I wished I would look outside the window and see something so wonderful. I’m not sure Alex agrees. :) But her card is, as always, delightful. And she did sneak in Smiling Sunshine including his sparkly rays.

Donna West Winter Birthday skating

Isn’t this the sweetest little birthday card? Donna made this and I just love that it’s something out of the ordinary for a birthday. I just love all the details and that she included just a wee bit of the aqua color to show the ice.

Here’s what Donna wrote:
I colored with my Copic markers. My friend gave me the Snowflake banner for Christmas and I couldn’t wait to use it on this little card. I also used a Mama Elephant die for the snow drift and I popped that up. The words are from stamp set I had in my stash. I used some Lawn Fawn Sparkle twine for the bow.

Kim Klinkovsky -wintertime

Kim’s created a great piece that’s more than a card – it’s a canvas! She’s combined two very wintery stamps and did a wonderful job.

Kim says:
It’s winter time! I wanted to create a home décor piece I could either put on canvas or frame. I started with these two gorgeous stamps on cardstock to create the scene and heat embossed it all in metallic gold to make it shimmer. I colored it in with copic markers, added some glossy accents for glass as the windows, added some icicle glitter glue, and shaved ice to really make it snowy. Tore the bottom edge, border punched the top with snowflakes, adhered to blue snowflake paper, and then adhered the whole piece to this lighter 12×12 snowflake paper. I added some stickers for a title, snowflakes, and words on the bottom. And scattered some adhesive rhinestones all over to make it complete.

Here’s a detail view – just look at all that snow!

Lori Barnett - Skating on Ice

Here’s a wonderfully sweet little card by Lori Barnett. I love that she’s chosen to stamp the background in gray and little Lucy in black – it really makes her stand out. It’s also a great way to create a scallop card (I think I could add scallops to everything) but making it square so you can stand it up.

Here’s what Lori wrote:
Ice Skating is so much fun! I’m sure Lucy will be spinning around on her new skates in no time. What a fun day playing in the snow! It’s hard to see in the picture, but I used clear embossing powder to create a nice shinny and smooth bed of “ice” for Lucy to skate on. There’s also sparkly crystal glitter on the snow dots and patches of glitter under the trees. I used the masking technique to stamp the trees behind Lucy. Coloring was done with markers.

Lynne Jardine - all is calm

Here’s a magical holiday card by Lynne Jardine. The dark background she’s chosen really shows off all those wonderful bits of snow. I love too that the only color is in the scarf and hat – it really makes him stand out. She’s added just a little bit of bling and a sweet little bow to finish things off.

Lynne says:
I loooove snowmen and this little guy looks so happy!  I’ve coloured him with markers and then added some Wink of Stella to his scarf and hat, and stickles to his little carrot nose.  I love this sentiment too, it’s such a fabulous mix of fonts :)

My background uses a snowy stencil and some white embossing paste, and then some stickles for the snow on the drifts (made with paper smooches dies).

Lynne Jardine - dec calender

Isn’t this the sweetest little calendar page? It was sent in by Lynn Jardine and it just feels so wonderfully winter.

Here’s what Lynne wrote:
I chalked my sky a slight tint of blue and added some die cut snowflakes touched with Wink of Stella.  White enamel dots for falling snow.  I’ve lost my calendar inserts so had to hand write the dates.

I coloured my images with watercolour pencils and added more WOS to the snowman’s hat and scarf, and to little Daisy’s hat too.  Daisy and Brewster both popped up on dimensionals.

I reckon Brewster’s toes are feeling the cold … he needs to learn from his friends and wrap up warmer! ;)

Happy December everyone!

monica-lamp postMonica made this lovely little winter wishes card. It’s glitzy with the gold and sparkles, but in an oh-so-sweet-Monica-way. She used the light post stamp and cut it out and used foam squares so that it stood away from the background. I think this might be one of the few cards that doesn’t feature a signature little Monica heart.

Here’s a cute little wintery scene card sent in by Monica. She’s used a light blue polka dot paper for the bottom background and separated the top little houses with a piece of rick rack – doesn’t it look like a little bit of snow? I love the way she’s colored the scene – fun soft colors. She topped the card off with three little jewels and a cute red snowflake. Her sentiment in the banner is just the right touch with the addition of soft blue.
