Continuing Happy Holidays

Hello everyone and Welcome to the Stamp TV Members December Blog Hop!

I'm so happy that you stopped by to look at my card projects.  I hope you'll leave a message for me, I love reading them and learning about you.

I'm still in a "Christmas  frame of mind" so I made this card for Selma's Blast From the Past Challenge  over at StampTV  The technique is called "Using Colored Pencils and OMS " so check it out.

The dp is from Bo-Bunny's Limited Edition Glitter Series entitled "Snowy Serenade Sparkles".  It is gorgeous paper.  The bottom portion of the card is cs from GKD Pure Luxury Pure White embossed with a Cuttlebug folder (sorry I don't remember the name of it, but it's swirly...kinda looks like snow.)  I layered it on GKD Base Weight CS "Ocean Mist" and then on GKD Pure Luxury "Silver Lining".  The corners were Cuttlebug dyes.  I used 2 GKD stamp sets to make this card.

The cabin and the trees  (I stamped them subtly on the dp) are from the "Life Is Good" set by Theresa Momber.  The sentiment is from GKD "Holiday Hospitality ".  Ink used is Vivid "Aqua "  stamped on GKD Pure Luxury CS and cut then embossed on Spellbinders Shapeabilities "Fancy Tags".  The cabin too was stamped on Pure Luxury Pure White CS, colored using the colored pencil and OMS technique, then cut and embossed using my Nestabilities standard circle large.  Once both the sentiment and cabin were cut and embossed, I sponged them very lightly with  Vivid Aqua before adhering them to the card.

I had a little fun with the trees around the cabin.  I used Flowersoft (Spring Green) on them and then "decorated" them with Ice Stickles from Ranger.  I absolutely love the way it turned out.  The snow on the roof is "Snow Writer" by DecoArt.

The only embellishments I used were self sticking nail heads and ribbon from my stash.

I hope you have a happy, healthy New Year.

This reminds of a snowglobe! Love the bling on this card also. I have this GKD stamp set so I'm going to try to 'case' your card. I'll add a comment with a link when I do.
