RRCB150 Warm Mittens

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  The Retro Rubber Challenge took a break but we're back with a fabulous new challenge starting off the new year, giving those older stamps some love!  Here's our prompt:


Ooh, isn't that a beauty of a prompt?!  I love it!  I knew just what I wanted to do, too!  Here we go:


I had this beautiful foiled snowflake paper in my stash, and I simply used an old mitten die to cut out a pair of them, mounted them on a stitched white panel and added some silver twine and sequins:


The sentiment from Warmth and Wonder (2013) was stamped directly on a piece of patterned DSP in Misty Moonlight ink:


While I was at it, I made another card using some fun snow-themed DSP that I had been hoarding, simply because I really didn't know how to use it!  I created a larger card...7 1/4" x 4 1/4"...in order to fit all the cute images on:


I got a little carried away with the bling, glimmer and snowflakes, but I had fun:




The papers are all from Simple Stories' Winter Wonderland, with accents of Blue Glimmer paper diecut snowflakes, sequins, silver glimmer ribbon and a sentiment from Snow Much Fun (2011)!

I hope you'll find some snowy, winter-wonderland inspiration with our challenge this week!  Just remember, your stamps have to be at least a year old, and you have to tell us the approximate age!  Can't wait to see what you create!  Thanks for popping in for a visit! Enjoy your day and be blessed!

This girl from the Mitten State has a hard time resisting anything to do with mittens, LeAnne - so cahUTE!!!
I have many of those collage papers that I don't know what to do with... you've figured it out beautifully!

Hi LeAnne! Love how you arranged the patterned paper so the foil makes a perfect cuff - your mittens are adorable! Also love your larger card - all the bling adds to the overall look very well. Hugs, Nancy J :o)

What a wonderful way to use that glorious paper - the paper stash continues to amaze me. Then you've mounted it so cleverly with just the right touch of bling to compliment but not overshadow the mittens. Just fabulous, LeAnne.

Your glitzy mittens are the bee's knees, what a pretty card! And your collage card is such a great idea. I like the snowflakes fluttering about the winter images!
