I hope everyone is rested up from their busy holiday weekend! I spent yesterday on the couch sick...once again. Matthew and I can't seem to shake this silly bug that is cycling between us. We are feeling a bit better now, so hopefully it is gone...we'll see :)
We have a fun new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown for you - Cute and Cuddly. Our fabulous sponsor - MyGrafico - has provided some adorable little images for our team to use.
So I grabbed a piece that worked for today's card and set to making all the details. I started by stamping snowflakes onto an inked up banner and embossing them. Then I inked up and die cut a little tag and used the Mini Scenery: Peppermint Zone stamp from Winnie & Walter to get a fun swirl in the background. I achieved that by misting the stamp with some white shimmer spray and stamping it down on my blue inked tag. It's subtle, but so cute! Then used my Fuse tool to create a cute little shaker with it! It took me a few tries...I'm not sure if the plastic that I'm using is too thin, or if I just need more practice, but I keep melting it too much so I have all these little holes everywhere and have to start over...oh well. I got it on the third try for this tag :)
I printed off and colored up one of the cute penguins from the Penguin Digital Set from MyGrafico and cut it all out. I white heat embossed the sentiment onto some vellum and then added a cute little present in the penguins hands. After getting it all assembled, I decided it needed a little more detail, so I white heat embossed and then fussy cut out some snowflakes from the WPlus9 Folk Art Flurries set, and adhered them around the card. This helped to really finish it all off.
I hope you'll join us this week!
