Let's Go Ice Skating

  Love the TH/Stampers Blueprint stamps! Now that everyone has seen their cards, I'm going to start posting them. 

  I made this one for Mike's aunt Janette. The paper is Authentique "Peaceful", and the vintage skating images on the paper were perfect to go with this stamp!

  Closeup of the skate. I added some silver Liquid Pearls to the blade, then some Stickles Frosted Lace to make it look icy. Snowflake dies are from Cheery Lynn.

I have a couple more Christmas cards and a couple of  birthday cards I'll post in the next couple of days.

Snow Happy!

   I seem to be on a snowman kick this year! This card was made for my hairdresser, Angie. We've known each other for 26 years! 

 I bought a paper collection at a craft sale, "slightly used", meaning some of the papers and stickers were used. It wasn't a full pack. It was Simple Stories "Snow Patrol". I made 3 cards from it, and still have paper and sentiment cards for a couple more! 

 Snowflakes are dies from Memory Box.

The inside.

The back.


This is another card I made from the pack:


  The inside. The sentiment stamps are from Words to the Rescue by Steve Fadie, "Christmas 2".

The back.



  This card I posted a few days ago. You can see more pics and the blog post, here: Season for Freezin'



  Really love this collection! Thanks for stopping by! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
