Friends Warm the Heart

October 21, 2011

Happy Friday, everyone!!  We have made it to the weekend!!  Yay!!  It is a gloomy, rainy day here in Missoula... our fall is going quickly and before you know it, winter will be upon us.  I love winter for the first little bit...and then it just starts to get old.  Tee hee!  I love Montana though, and will take the winters so I can have the summers. 

I am back today to share a card I did for the Two Peas "Stamping A to Z" event.  My card is for today's letter.... "L is for Lawn Fawn".  I created a cute little winter themed friendship card using "Making Frosty Friends", which went perfectly with some Glitz Design "Beautiful Dreamer" papers.  I created this for some challenges as well, and those will be linked at the end of the post.  Here is what I made!
 "Friends Warm the Heart" supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (smooth white)
Paper/Lace/Pom Trim: Glitz Design (Beautiful Dreamer: floral, polka, houndstooth, stripe)
Doily: Wilton
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Making Frosty Friends)
Ink: Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black) 
Twine: May Arts
Button: craft supply
Glitter: Doodlebug Designs
White Poms: Darice Inc.
Colored Pencil: Advantus Inc.
Sewing Machine: Brother
Thread: Coats & Clark
Diecut Machine: Cricut Expression by Provo Craft
Diecut Cartridge: Plantin Schoolbook

Instructions:  Make card from white cardstock.  Cut pink paper slightly smaller and sand the edges.  Cut a 4" circle from aqua heart paper using your Cricut Expression.  Cut the circle in half, sand the edges and layer to the bottom of the pink block.  Fold a doily in half, and adhere to the top of the pink block.  Zig zag stitch along the seam, and then adhere the entire block to the front.  Cover a chipboard heart in houndstooth paper, and sand the edges.  Then cover it in chunky glitter, and adhere to the front.  Stamp the snowman to white cardstock, cut out and color in the nose.  Stamp the scarf and hat to patterned papers, and cut out.  Layer to the snowman, then adhere it to the card front.  Accent the hat with a twine bow, button and pink pom.  Cut banner edges to a strip of striped paper and then sand the edges.  Stamp the sentiment to it, adhere a strip of lace to the bottom of it, and then adhere to the front.  Accent the sentiment banner with white poms to finish.

I will be back tomorrow with my CPS sketch card for the week!!  I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your day today. ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
~Lea L.
