It's All About the Weather

Frances Byrne is the hostess for the month of February at CCEE Stampers and she let the team know Feb. 5th was Weatherperson's Day so she is giving the challenge this week to create a card that features some sort of weather. It can be sun, clouds, snow, rain, etc. You would know I would choose snow so I'll have an excuse to do another snowman. :-)

My scene is from a stamp I won from High Hopes called Winter Wonderland. I left off some lines that were on it for snow as it was a black line indicating a mound of snow. But, I wanted to sponge mine. I cut a template from cardstock and used Tim Holtz Distress Ink/Stormy Sky to create my snow. The sky was sponged with the same color.

The snowman is a Royal Langnickel/Let it Snow stamp. He didn't have a body below the scarf so I used an EK Success 3/4" punch to make one.  I colored him, cut out and placed him in the scene.

The rest of the recipe is below. We hope you'll join us this week for our weather challenge.

Stamps-High Hopes/Winter Wonderland, Royal Langnickel/Let it Snow, Hero Arts/Sparkle clear designs/Gift for You set
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Inks/Stormy Sky
Accessories-Ice Stickles/Silver Ice, Copics, EK Success 3/4" punch, red jute

For My Love

I made this card for my wonderful husband. I think this image is just perfect for a masculine card. It is called Cute Circles and I bought it at Inspired by Stamping. Does it ever stamp like a breeze!  The sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps/You Are Cherished. The 'Just For You' sentiment is from IBS, same as the houndstooth image.

My card was so easy to make. I stamped the image, punched some remnants from a Fiskars heart border punch, added two sentiments and the scored lines. That's it!

I think this will be the last of the valentines I'll be making. I may upload a few more but they are finished. How about you...all finished yet?

I'm entering this card into these challenges:
