Wishing You Joy and Happiness

Hello and welcome!

How's life treating you?  Good?  If not, maybe you need to treat yourself!  Treat yourself to some of these fabulous Stamp-It Twinkle stamp sets!  I did!! ha

Crafter's Companion has a Christmas/Winter challenge going on this month and I couldn't wait to join in.  I was inspired to make this particular card after I saw the awesome sketch today at Sunday Stamps.   My friend, Jessica has a Non-Traditional Color Christmas Challenge at Sketches4all that I thought I would play on too.

To start I pulled out some fun green cardstock and my 6" X 6" Embossalicious Embossing Folder - Let it Snow.  I embossed the top of the base card in my eBosser. Then I grabbed some sand paper and sanded the top to help show the beautiful snowflake design.

I pulled out the Stamp-It Twinkle EZMount Stamp Set - Joy & Spirit.  Then I grabbed a piece of Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and my Spectrum Noir pen in CG2.  I colored a area on the paper and then I stamped out my sentiment with Tsukineko VersaMark ink.  

I sprinkled on some opaque white embossing powder and then heat embossed it.  I die cut the sentiment out and now have custom colored topper!  LOVE it!  

I added it onto papers that I layered on the card base.  It needed a little something more so I pulled out my Ultimate Tool and made a sweet little hot pink bow to add.  Easy peasy!

Now it is your turn to make a Christmas/Winter project for the Crafter's Companion Challenge this month.  There are actually two challenges over there this month and the other one is "Baby".  Two chances to win!  Better get to scrapping! ha  

Until next time...happy scrapping!
