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.

StampTV December Member Blog Hop

I'm so excited to be participating in the second StampTV Member Blog Hop! The stamps sets being featured are some of the most creative stamp sets I've ever used and I love, love, love each one of them.

This is one of the first cards I made using the newest stamp set by Nina Brackett, "Lovely Shelf". I'm hoping to add more cards for this hop because designs keep rolling around in my head, so please come back and see if I managed that (It might be difficult because of Christmas, but let's see if I can get'r done ;0) I think I just challenged myself :P )

Take a peak at all the other blogs in this hop by going to Gina K's Blog , she has them all here .
