Acetate Card

I loved making these cards last year and forgot about them until I ran into this challenge blog called Crafty Cardmakers. Their challenge was to use something clear. I think I liked last years cards better since I used snowmen, but this one is growing on me.
These cards are so much fun because you work your way back from the front. Each of my laters was 1/4" bigger the the one in front.
For this card I used Close to my Heart, Heartfelt Christmas Stamps for the front and the saying inside. And CTMH Snowflurries Stamps to stamp on the acetate using white StazOn.

November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Well here we are again. Another month has passed us by so quickly and it's time again for another Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.

Today we are featuring a fantastic Stamp Set called Around the Block. You can make so many cool houses with this stamp set which consists of 26 individual stamps.

If you came here from Tammy's blog, you are on the right track. If you just happened across my blog first, you can either start at the beginning, or continue from here. This is a round robin so when you get back here, you know you've completed the round. If at any time there is a broken link or you get lost, the list is in my sidebar.

My card today is using a sketch from Delightful Sketches #10. I am totally addicted to sketch challenges.
The paper pack I used for my card is a retiring pack called Aspen. I just love this paper and thought it went really well with the stamps.

The house was stamped with VersaMark onto Twilight CS then white embossing powder was added and heated. I used liquid applique on the roof, window sills and on the ground. I then added prisma glitter to all of the snow and snowflakes. Don't you just love sparkle. Especially around this time of the year.

The ribbon is from the Outdoor Denim Ribbon Rounds and the center of the snowflakes are the connections club half pearls.

I did a bit of hand sewing with matching Creme Brule embroidery floss.

Starting November 3rd, you can purchase two stamp sets and get one FREE. Those two purchases can help you get this fabulous Stamp of the month discounted or FREE!!!  Email Me today with any questions or to place an order.
