Baby It's Cold Outside--SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge 39

January 19, 2018

I love SugarPea Designs and I finally found time to play along with their monthly Mix It Up Challenge!  



I played along with the sketch and the inspiration photo.  I used one of my favorite SugarPea Designs stamp sets for the main image.  My card features the Frosty Friends stamp set.  I just love this precious little girl catching snowflakes.  It reminds me of my childhood.  I grew up in Indiana and I have played in a lot of snow!  



I also used the Build A Background Basics stamp set by SugarPea Designs to make the polka dot strip behind the snow man.  I used Copic Markers and paper pieced the coat and scarf.  A few snowflakes and rhinestones were added for fun!  Lots of Wink of Stella adds shine to my images. 



Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.  Have a great weekend!


HUGS!

Forward---Twofer Challenge 31

January 19, 2018

I have been a little under the weather this week and with the snow and ice in Atlanta, I thought I would have a lot of crafty time, but my mojo has been "Gone With The Wind"!  

The amazingly talented Darnell has a fabulous new challenge.  It is called the Twofer Card Challenge.  
 I look forward to playing along and I am certain the Design Team will bring so much inspiration our way! 


The theme for this week is "Feathers".  I dug through my stamps and found one that I just love and have never used. I guess Darnell would call that "NBUS"!  "Never before used Stuff".  LOL!  She is hilarious!  

My stamp set is from Unity Stamps.  The stamp set is called Forward and Through. It is perfect for a variety of cards.  Graduation, Encouragement, Love, Retirement, Get Well--the possibilities are endless.


I used colored pencils on the feathers.  I love Native American Art and this stamp reminds me of a painting I have seen.



So happy you stopped by my blog today!  

Sending warm hugs your way!

Claire
