HSS #92- Winter Wonderland!

Well, it's been a muggy 82 today here in South Texas while I shopped all day for Christmas! Boo! But, I hope where you are, you are enjoying more seasonable appropriate weather!

I'm ready for something like this:

Hand Stamped Sentiments # 94
As we are getting ready for this wonderful season we want to see how you integrate this festive inspiration WINTER WONDERLAND into this weeks project. What does this phrase mean to you, show us with your project- anything from a card, scrap page, 3-D item, even home decor projects, YOU CREATE!!

I have not loved "pool Party" until today! This soft turquoise is just beautiful with Crumb Cake and crisp Whisper White!
I also used the heck out of my Dazzling Details! I LOVE this stuff! It is so easy to use, unlike regular glitter glue. The tip is very fine and you have better control of it. Also, I have no experienced one bubble or clog since I began using it months ago!

And, isn;t this ribbon yummy! It is called Pool Party Ruffled Grosgrain and is 3/8" Very easy to work with.



I also ran my Whisper White Craft pad all around the edges to give it a frosty feel!
The DSP is from the Domestic Goddess set. Border Punch is the Scallop Ribbon Punch. To create the circle frame, I first cut the scalloped circle out using the big shot, then I punched the middle out with the 2 3/8" circle punch.
Stamp Sets: Jolly Bingo Bits, Merry Winter, Frame It

Now, if I can create a winter card in the middle of what feels like a South American Rainforest, then you have no excuses!! Make sure you come back and link up with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  6. I love the snowman in the double frame and all of that sparkle is perfect for a winter wonderland! I felt the same way about pool party until I starting using it for Christmas cards. Maybe they need to change the name since it's such a fitting color for winter!!
