Paper Sweeties: Monthly Designer Spotlight


Hi, friends!  I'm super excited to announce that today I'm the Monthly Designer in the Spotlight for Paper Sweeties this month!  I've created a card using some of our newest release items to share with you today and Debbie is sharing it on the Paper Sweeties blog, too.  Come and take a gander...


I started this creation by creating a snowy background.  I sponged a piece of white cardstock with turquoise ink.  I then dry embossed the panel with a large polka dot background.  I lightly inked this with Versamark and heat embossed with white powder.  I then added some snow banks cut freehand and topped with glitter.  This was matted onto some turquoise glitter paper to add a bit more shine and sparkle--you can never have too much around the holidays! :)


I then stamped a snowman from the Holly Days set and die cut it out.  I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers and added a bit of glitter for some shine.  I used the "steam" die cut from the Homemade With Love Sweet Cuts to create glittery wind on either side of my wintry snowman.  A few light blue sequins from the Tuti-Fruiti sequins mix and glossy accents on the eyes finished off this portion of the card.


I then decided to add some stamped and die cut snowflakes to the sky.  These little guys are from the Holly Days set and are cut out with the Holly Days Sweet Cuts.  I added more of the same light blue sequins from the Tuti-Fruiti mix to the centers to add a bit more shine.  Just a tad bit of glitter, too.  


So, what do you think?  I love it!  I decided not to add a sentiment so that this could be used for different purposes.  It could be a Christmas card, a Hanukkah card, a just because card...so versatile!  


Thanks for stopping by today to take a peek at my card!  I hope you hop over to grab our newest release items and that you join in our monthly challenge, too!  HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
