Happy Sunday, peeps! Hope your weekend is going well! It's Jaydee's turn to be our Paper Players hostess and she has a fun CAS challenge for us:
I love it! Have you ever seen the northern lights? We had some one night, very faint, but normally we are way too south to see them. They sure are beautiful! I had to be satisfied with using some frosty colors and snow on my card today:
This is probably a little less CAS than I normally make; I thought of making it one layer, but I would have had to make some masks, and I thought if I am going to be cutting things out, I might as well just stamp my little images and cut them out instead of masks! I used thick white cardstock, stamping my little critters with Memento ink and coloring them with Blends. I embossed the card with the Softly Falling EF, then added (the dreaded) Stickles to the ice, Wink of Stella to the ice cube, and some Martha Stewart chunky glitter to the hats:
It's very fun and sparkly in real life! I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue and added a little glimmer snowflake:
as a sentiment from a Flourishes stamp on the inside!
I am also entering this in the Jingle Belles challenge where they're highlighting cold weather wear--gloves, scarves, hats, etc! I think this could fit the bill!
So how will our challenge inspire you? I hope you'll play along and enter your creation over at the Paper Players blog...while you're there, check out what the other designers did! Remember to keep it clean and simple too! Thanks for popping in today!
