"Winter Scenes"


My first project today was directly inspired by one of the sentiments in the featured set, Amaryllis Definition.  "You make the day sparkle" made me think of glitter and from there, I just knew I had to glitter up some Scor-Tape!  I opted for a bookmark this time around.  Shhhh, don't tell anyone, but I had to cut apart my sentiment to make it fit.  That, folks, is one of the beautiful things about clear stamps!  I just trimmed very carefully and deliberately stamped my sentiment.  After I finished, I fit my trimmed pieces back into the original shape.  It's just like a miniature crafty puzzle!
Next up, I made a card.  If you have visited before, you know I'm a CAS kind of girl.  I went simple and colored my Amaryllis Belladonna in a more common red color.  After coloring my flower, I drew a simple black line as a border and double matted my image.  A simple sentiment beneath my popped up image finishes off the card.
Thanks for checking out today's new release.  You are off to Sue's blog now to see what she has in store.
