- Patterned paper – Carta Bella “Merry Alphabet”

I colored the stamped trees, fox, star and ornaments with Copic markers and created a Wintry little scene in the circular opening. The navy cardstock has specks that look a little like distant stars or SNOW as a backdrop for the large die-cut star. This is an entry for the Paper Players Challenge #274 “Let it Snow.” Thanks for stopping by.

I created this card for a 90-minute challenge I participated in with my Flickr Hero Arts group last weekend. The challenge, called a scramble, was to put together a holiday/Winter card using tiny stamps and it has to be completed and posted within 90 minutes. I’m pretty slow to complete my cards, so doing these are always very challenging for me! But I did it! I created the background by applying the two Distress Ink colors with an foam ink applicator and then spattered it with water. Once dry, I stamped the snowflakes and swirls (from two different clear stamp sets) with the ombre ink pad. I die-cut the label and stamped the sentiment from the CL887 set and popped it up with dimensional adhesive. I added a gemstone to the center of each snowflake for a little sparkle.
I was able to also play along in the Paper Players Challenge #273 with this card. This challenge is a TIC-TAC-TOE puzzle and I picked the three items from the top left to the bottom right diagonally shown on the puzzle board: Snowflake-Sparkle-Die-cut! Perfect! Thanks for visiting.

I colored the stamped peony and leaves from Altenew with Copic markers and layered them on top of the Memory Box die cut. I added a few tiny rhinestones for a little sparkle. Thanks for visiting.
