Cozy winter comforts...coffee and a fuzzy blanket!

WINTER BLUES

This week's theme may have you thinking I'm sick of winter and mildly depressed from the lack of sunshine around here; however, January for me is typically thoughts of snowmen and winter themed cards that are usually blue!  So now you're getting where I'm coming from, right?

The first card design uses my all time favorite Tim Holtz Sizzix snowman diecut.  I even dug into my Stampendous/Dreamweaver stencil paste drawer and stenciled the background using a Dreamweaver stencil!  Sure was fun taking a walk down that memory lane.  I have a new Tim Holtz tree die that is just behind the snowman.
I used a new snowy/stars die for the next card along with a new Tim Holtz deer die.  I hand tore the glitter paper snow hill.  This would make a good masculine card I think.
Remember last week's post on masking fluid?  Here's a second card design quite different from last week's card.  I worked with another new stamp set by Anita Jeram from Colorado Craft Company.  The bunny image is from a children's book Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney and Anita was the illustrator!  I used to read that very book to my son. The narrow purple ribbon was actually light pink that I smeared with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide!
Found out at Christmas, my sister inlaw loves Gnomes!  Who knew? I don't own any gnome stamps (shocker) but this little cutie is made from punches!  The hat is a cut down Christmas tree diecut, the beard is a birch leaf punch, the nose is a punch, the feet are a heart punch cut down the center.  For the body, I cut a 1" wide piece and corner rounded!  Isn't this adorable?
The card is a Z-fold card and I had so much fun mixing paper patterns!
I was all prepared this week with my next craft day with my sister and her MIL, Mary Jane, but Mary Jane is ill and we couldn't have our special craft fun time.  I wanted to show you what my project was anyway and I can't wait to make this card with her.  The snowman is stamped and masked first.  Using the end of a wood skewer, I dipped it in a puddle of watercolor paint and just made random dots!  To fill in the white space, I used Distress Spray.  The Winter sentiment is a die that also includes the snowy wavy edge.  Hope you get better soon MJ!

Have a pleasant week!

XOXO
