Together We Can....

January 19, 2012

Happy Thursday, everyone!  I hope the past couple of days have been good for you!  We are getting snow just dumped on us...I would say we have at least a foot and it isn't stopping.  Winter has finally made it to Montana!! 

I have a card to share with you today that is pretty clean and simple!  It is my card for CPS Sketch 251, where we were sponsored by Sweet N Sassy Stamps this week.  And considering the weather right now, the stamps were a perfect fit for my week!  Tee hee!  Here is what I created:
"Together We Can..." supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (smooth white) 
Paper: Glitz Design (Vintage Blue: Rose)
Stamps: Sweet N Sassy (Snowflake Flourish set) 
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: sky gray, midnight)
Ribbon/Jewel: Bo Bunny
Twine: May Arts
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Buttons: American Crafts

Instructions: Make card from white cardstock.  Cut blue paper slightly smaller and sand the edges.  Tie ribbon around the bottom of the card, then adhere the entire block to the card front.  Stamp the snowflake flourish and sentiment to a white cardstock block, then accent with pearls.  Adhere to the left side of the card using foam adhesive, then accent the bow with a large clear jewel.  Add two ribbon tabs to the left side of the stamped block.  Thread two glittered buttons with twine, and adhere to the top of the tabs to finish.

Card Challenges Used: 
-Stampin' Sisters in Christ #122- use something brand new (stamps)
-Truly Scrumptious #72- use something forgotten (ribbon/jewel)
-Crazy 4 Challenges #119- monochromatic blue
-Fussy and Fancy Friday- let it snow

I also wanted to let you know that we are revealing all the new Glitz Design collections this week on the blog, and we are giving away one of each of the entire collections!  Just click on each image below to take you to the full reveal!

Until later,
