I just love snowmen so when I saw this card on Pinterest I just had to lift it. This also fits a challenge at Turtle Soup. You had to use one of your pins from Pinterest for your inspiration.
Isn't he just the cutest little snowman!
Everything on this card was embossed using my Cuttlebug. The background blue piece was embossed using my new Anna Griffin snowflake folder. I love it! The snowman's hands are branches that I cut out on my Cricut. This was so quick and easy that I made several more of these cards.
I've got a card sketch challenge up today at Turtle Soup. We have a fabulous sketch from Bev Code to work with. I couldn't wait to work on it!
Here's the sketch:
First I took a stencil and inked the background paper. Then I added some texture paste to the left side, dragged my scraper tool through it and inked it lightly with black ink. The squiggly circle is from a new die that I was dying to try out. Then I stamped the sentiment and added the wooden arrow that I had inked up.
Hope you get a chance to drop by Turtle Soup and play along with some of our challenges!
Here's a layout I did for a TTT challenge at Turtle Soup. I got to try "smooching" for the first time! I watched a you tube video by Missy Whidden, whose work I love. Then I sat down and proceeded to get messy!
I started by using some texture paste with a stencil and then painted over it with a thin layer of gesso. I used mist and ink to do the smooching part and I love how it came out. I'll definitely be trying this technique again!
I've got a challenge up at Turtle Soup today. It's Wednesday so that means we are trying to crash our stash, which we all know will probably never happen but it's still nice to try, right! For this challenge you can only use solid color cardstock scraps. No printed paper allowed!
I started with a white background and used stamps, gesso, stencils and even added some doodling around the edges. All the layers under the photo are embossed and inked.
If your looking for some fun challenges come join us at Turtle Soup. Hope to see you there!
This is a layout of my 2 granddaughters this past winter. They had so much snow in their area.....I think they broke records. Anyway, they were trying to help with the digging out. They had received Elsa and Anna shovels for Christmas and they were eager to try them out.
This is also for a sketch challenge at Turtle Soup. Here's the sketch:
I just love this sketch and couldn't wait to work with it. Love how it turned out!
