My Favorite Things Stamps...WSC # 46....Warm Winter Wishes!

Hey stampin' friends! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I am just quickly popping on here to post this card that I made on the weekend for the My Favorite Things Stamps, Wednesday Stamp Club # 46 Challenge. I loved this week's sketch and I plan to use it again for some more Christmas cards that I have to make. This week I decided to ink up this precious snowman from the Pure Innocence set called, Holiday Hugs and I teamed him up with this festive Echo Park Season's Greetings 6x6 papers. I did a little colouring with my Copics and paper pieced his scarf. I left the image in the die and inked with Old paper and Tumbled Glass Distress inks. I used the MFT Bracket Tab Die-namics and stamped one of the sentiments that comes in the Holiday Hugs set and then cut around the outer edge of the Die-nmaics die with my Fiskars Finger-Grip Craft Knife on a glass mat to create a mat for the bracket tab.

the sketch called for a flower embellishment but I decided to switch it with a little cluster of corrugated cardboard hearts cut with the Hearts of Plenty Die-namics dies. I painted the edges of the hearts with Picket Fence Crackle paint, cut a few Snowflakes from cork material with the Let it Snowflakes Die-namics Dies and added some BasicGrey Buttons tied with hemp twine. The tiny heart is cut with the heart die from the Notched Tag Stamps and Die-namics set. I also layered the Jumbo Scallop and Scalloped Scallop border Die-namics but then kinda covered it up with all the other stuff...oops!

Here is the inside of the card...I stamped a shadow image of the snowman and stamped another one of the sentiments that comes in the Holiday Hugs set on kraft carstock cut with the Polka Dots Greetings label Die-namics die and again I cut a mat from brown cardstock by cutting around the edge of the die with my craft knife.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card for this week's MFTWSC46 sketch challenge!

Hope you have a great week!
