White on White

I haven't done a white on white card in quite a while when I saw a challenge to do one so off I went to my studio.

I stamped the butterfly with white Colorbox ink and embossed it with white diamond embossing powder. While the embossing powder was still warm I put more embossing powder on and heat it again. I did this a few times so the embossing powder had more depth. The die cut is from die-namics. Not sure where the embossing plate is from. 
I am going to use this card for a sympathy card for a co-worker.
I am entering it in the white challenge at flutter by Wednesday here.

Hope you enjoyed my creation.

Winter friends

I am on a roll. I haven't made this many cards in a row in a long time. Feels good. Love being creative.

Here is my first one. The image is from wild rose studio. The words and heart are from some old stamps that I have in my collection. The image is colored with prisma color pencils. The paper is from basic grey. The falling snow is fun flock. The stars are stickles. The die cuts have stickles added. I had to get this image because my 22 yo son loves polar bears. I am going to send him this card for Valentine's Day.

On to the next.

It is winter and I wanted to make a card for some friends and this Magnolia image seemed perfect. I like to give hugs to  my friends. Tilda and Snowy are colored with copics. The paper is from basic grey. The white snowflakes are brads from Making Memoires. The strips of snowflakes are from the basic grey collection matching the paper. I was going to put a pink bow on the card but decided it was too much pink so the aqua bow one. 

Here is the left side of the inside of the card.
The words are from Whipper Snapper and I used the mini snowy hugs for the image.

And the other side.
Hope you enjoyed my creations.

I am entering this in the sweet stamping pixies snowflake challenge here.
Thank you for the comments you make. They really mean a lot.

Bella on Bauble

Suzanne Dean went on a hunt for this stamp and when I saw it I knew I had to have it. I love elephants. It was sold out of almost every place. I finally found it in a store in Canada I was a little leery about shopping on line outside the US but they gave me great service.
Now for the cards

Both are colored with copics. The hat has diamond glaze and then fun flock on top. A little bit of stickles are underneath the diamond glaze on the bauble. On the top one I wove the gold braid through the picture so Bella was hanging on the braid. 

Thanks for stopping.

Winter Wedding

I have to get ready to go to a wedding in a bit but thought I would share with you the card I made for the happy couple.

I used this loving couple from Magnolia and the church scene from the recent Christmas collection. The bride wanted a winter wonderland for her wedding but I am afraid the weather is not cooperating. It is quite warm today and the snow has melted but it is winter in this scene. I used snow tex and liquid pearls and white fun flock to make the snow. Everything is colored with copics and some highlights of prisma color pencils and a white pen. The snowflakes are from memory box die cuts. Tilda's dress is covered in star dust stickles. The red behind the scene is a nestabilities heart although you really can't tell. A silk ribbon and gold braid is  tied around the bottom of the card and half pearls are in the center of the snowflakes.

Here is the inside. 

The"poem" is written by me. Not that I am very good but I wish the best for them.
Hope you enjoyed the card. I do really enjoy reading your comments.

Polar Bear

I am in the middle of moving my studio from one room to another but needed to make a card for my son's birthday. I tried to use as many scraps as I could because I found way too many little pieces floating around.

My son loves polar bears so that is why I used this image from Rubber Stamps of America. The little blue corner stamp is from Judith. I colored the image with colored pencils and used a black copic marker for the nose. The snow was done with shaved ice from Ranger.The snowflakes are some brads I have. 

Here is the inside.

The letters are some epoxy ones I got from Target's See Spot Save section  a few years ago. 
Thank you for looking.
