Winter Giraffe Card Recipe

I printed this adorable image from Imagine That Digi Stamp along with one of the sentiments in the set.  I cut out the sentiment with a banner die from My Favorite Things and popped it up on foam tape.  I added some coordinating card stock and enamel dots and there you have it.  I just love those pre-colored digis for a fun quick hand made card.

This card is one of many that I made using only card stock, my tape runner and a cutter.  It was a 6 x 6 paper pad that also included the nice sentiments pages.  I used several sketches and coordinating card stock to create a nice little stash of cards.  You can't go wrong with beautiful card stock.

Winter Card 4 Kids Card Recipe

It's time to make those winter cards which I think can be Christmas too.  I hadn't played with my Tim Holtz oxide inks lately, so I chose my favorite color combo.  But first I stamped my sentiment and snowflakes from My Favorite Things in Versamark Ink and heat set with Nuvo White Embossing powder.  I used a sponge dauber to strategically apply Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Salty Ocean.  Once I sponged the colors to my liking, I spritzed with water.  I went for lightly, but you can see I was a bit heavy handed in the corners.  I finished it up with rhinestones in the center of the snowflakes.
