Stitched Let It Snow

Hi there

I'm here this morning to share a card I've made for the latest challenge at Muse, and this week we are basing our creations on a lovely card made by the super talented Laurie Willison.

When I saw Laurie's card, the '&' reminded me of a snowman wearing a scarf so that's the direction I headed in.  I kept the layout and colour scheme almost the same.



 
 

I wanted to use one of my new stamp sets from this month's release at Clearly Besotted Stamps called 'In Stitches: Christmas'.  The cute snowman and sentiment are both from this set.  I masked off the bottom of the card and used a stripes stamp to create the diagonal base.  I then stamped a row of stitches which I have in another set of stamps, to continue the theme.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - In Stitches: Christmas and Basic Stripes; Hot Off The Press - Stamped Stitches
  • Ink: Versa Color - Green Tea, Charcoal, Sky Gray and Scarlet

Here is Laurie's beautiful card...



That's all from me at the mo, I'm off now to do some very neglected and overdue housework!  Thanks for popping by and have a happy Saturday.
