Let It Snow...in December!



Good morning! Sorry for being a bad blogger, real life has been very busy with lots of fun the last weeks, but I'm taking small steps back to the crafty corner to add some cards to the Christmas pile. I'll also catch up with the blog visits this weekend to see what you've been up to.

I would like to enter:
Charisma Cardz Challenge: Favourite Colour Combo (Blue and White)
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Use a product available at the Simon Says Stamp Store (everything but the sentiment)

I used:
Penny Black Snowy Snowman
MS large snowflake punch
Cuttlebug polka dot embossing folder
Distress inks and Ranger Perfect Pearls
ProMarkers
Joanna Sheen sentiment

Have a wonderful weekend!

Love and hugs
Maarit

Two Favourites

Two of my favourites are meeting today, CAS and Penny Black. In the beginning I struggled with the Clean And Simple style, the white space felt so intimidating. On the other hand all lovely cards with lots of detail were so tempting and also hard to achieve. The cards do come easier now!

The image was coloured with Derwent water colours and cut out with a Nestie. I didn't have any 3D tape so I simply layered a stack of cardstock to get some dimension.

I would like to enter:
Less Is More: Use a rubber stamp + watercolour
