You're cool card featuring Newton's Nook

Was hoping this would be my last winter themed card I'd be sharing for a while, not because I don't enjoy winter cards, they're stinkin cute, but because I'm not one to create winter cards when its all warm out and flowers are blooming, but there may be a few more winter cards in my future as this cold does not want to go away. Today is another -30 degree day, Ah! Ok, i'll stop whining about the cold now!:)

I will be playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog for the All Creatures Great and Small challenge.
My little critters are from Newton's Nook. I stamped those cuties first and stamped them again on some scrap paper to be able to cut it out and use as a mask for when I stamped my ice berg. I again stamped the ice berg on scrap paper to be able to cut and use as a mask.Once everything was masked off I stamped and heat embossed my little snow flakes and used my ink blending tool to blend in some light blue ink in the background. I colored the images with colored pencils and covered the ice in wink of stella glitter which is very pretty in person but sadly doesn't photograph well.
I adhered on to a white card base and that's about it. I like the way it turned out, clean and simple but so cute!

Hope you enjoyed my card!! Thank you so much for stopping by!!

  2. Such a cute CAS card! I love making winter cards and perhaps next year I'll try to make a few extra. But I agree, it feels weird when the weather has moved on.. it's been warm and sunny in Los Angeles.. you wouldn't even know it's winter lol

    1. Thanks Yuki! So very jealous of your LA weather! I'm thinking I should relocate lol
