HI FRIEND !!! - New Release

Good Morning!! It is a frosty morning here !! Not as bad as the Northeast. We only have the cold and winds, but no snow.

Susana is releasing 3 New Stamps today. These are "From the Vault" stamps.

Elisabeth Bell for SCACD - "Winter Friends"
Carmen Medlin for SCACD - "Guardian of Hearth and Home"
Victoria Case for SCACD - "The Yearling"

This image is Victoria Case for SCACD "The Yearling". I just loooove the little fawn and the delightful smile on the little girl's face.

Have you ever had days where in your head you imagined something, but it just didn't turn out that way? KWIM That's kinda the case for my card today. The image is colored with Copics and highlighted with Stickles. I used Flower Soft Ultra Fine - Sand for the ground covering. I was trying to get it to look like dirt or sand.

The DP is "That's Amore" from CTMH. I liked the name of the paper for this image. I think the image is pure love., but then I am an animal lover. I found the flowers in my stash. They are from Prima and go perfectly. The ribbon is the final touch.

Thank you for stopping by this busy busy time of the year. Be sure to check out the other DT projects.

Did everyone have a nice weekend? It turned really cold here, but no snow. I just love this image with the little penguin holding on. They look like they are having so much snow fun. The image is "I've Got Your Back" from the Victoria Case Winter Hearts and Hugs Set. I think this may be my favorite one of the set.

I am entering this project in the following challenges:

Let's Ink It Up - Christmas - Twist add sparkle/bling
One Stitch at a Time - Old Stash New Stash - Old (tin) New (Stamp)
Paper Sundaes - Gift It
Pile It On - It's all in the wrapping
Creative Inspirations - Christmas Gifts
Crafts & Me - Dreaming of a White Christmas

I found this tin with a plastic lid in my stash and decided to alter it. My granddaughter wants me to bring her some Puppy Chow when I go to Colorado in a couple of weeks and this was just perfect to store it in. The image is colored with Copics and accented with Stickles. Since the lid is plastic it was a little bit of a challenge doing the snow. I first painted it on with acrylic paint and then added Polar White Flower Soft with a little Doodlebug Glitter Sugar Coating - Lily White.

The snowflakes were really a challenge. The plastic on the lid is super smooth and slippery so I had a little trouble getting my tape to hold down the stencil. However, I used the Crafters Workshop - Flurries and for the first time I used the Viva Modeling Creme - Pearl Light Blue with a little of the Glitter. This creme is really really nice and goes on so smooth and easy. My snowflakes would have been better if my tape would have held better, but that's okay. I used green tissue paper in the tin because of the reflection of the lid.

Now, before I go Susana has a fantastic NEW PRODUCT in stock. It is the New Sew Easy Tool for those who do not want to sew. The attachment tools are also available.
