Cold Winter Days

Wow....haven't posted on my blog for two months!  Guess I've been a tad busy with the holidays which are special family times for us.  I created this card for our January stamp club challenge which was this sketch along with snowflakes.  I'll also be sharing this card over at Simon Says Monday Challenge - Winter Blues.

I started with water color paper and stamped Tim Holtz's new snowflake stamps in versamark and then used white embossing powder to heat set.  I then sponged distress oxide inks in blues and purples and then spritzed with shimmer mist.  The beautiful shimmer does not show up at all on the photo!  I trimmed this piece down to the four pieces as shown above and adhered to white card stock and then mounted to a blue card base.

The sentiment is a die from Quietfire Designs and I cut three from water color paper and glued together to add dimension.  On the top I used Nuvo crystal drops in white and added the blue sequin.  This was a fun sketch.


  1. Gorgeous card Jane :-) the background is fabulous and I am sure the shimmer looks fabulous IRL! I used shimmer spritz a lot and it never shows up in pics unfortunately :-/ The 'Brrr' sentiment is awesome! I am going to check that company out! ;-)
