Winter And Sweaters

Winter And Sweaters

Last year I fell in love with Newton Nook’s winter critters in sweaters. They are sooo adorable! And they don’t have to make a Christmas card. So I ordered them with the coordinating dies and can’t get enough of them. For this card I chose the fox. I started with the silver panel on which […]

Snow White

Snow White

Snow White is this wednesdays challenge by SSS. It inspired me to create this snowfall card.   I had already made the snowflake. It was a die cut from patterned paper on which I added inks in blue and silver and played around with adding clear embossing powder between the inking. This pearled up beautifully […]

Easter Rabbit

Then I sprayed it with water from some distance, heated it and dabbed off the rest. Then I aligned the three dies […]
