Greetings


I just got this new stamp set from Paper Smooches and have been dying to play with it.  I had time to play along with the CAS challenge at Splitcoast; to use newspaper or dictionary script on your card and the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays; over the edge.  I had a piece of paper that I had inked with Distress inks and my acrylic block sitting on my desk, so I stamped over it with the newspaper text from Hero Arts and then added the sentiment in black.  The snowflake is cut with a Spellbinders die and sponged while still in the die.  The embossed bkg. is a Sizzix folder.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Paper Smooches, Hero Arts/ Spellbinders/ Distress ink/ pearl/ twine

Just gorgeous. The embossing on the snowflake and the addition of the newsprint stamp are great details that really finish the card perfectly.

Love this! I am a big fan of distress inks and love the banner you made for the sentiment. It really pops. I have dictionaries that pepole tossed and it drives hubby batty when I rip pages from them or old books. I try explaining it is for "art".

OOH - love that you sponged the snowflake (I need to remember to try that one time before I take the paper out of the die!) and really love how your flowery ef becomes quite snowy when put together with the snowflake. Great card!
