First up is a Winter themed card using the cute stamp Skiing Snowman by Penny Black. I haven't had a chance yet to use this cutie this Winter so it was the perfect choice and fitting for this time of the year! (Although we currently are enjoying some warmer weather, which is really nice after such arctic temperatures we've had for a while.)
I heat embossed the image and then colored with Kuretak Zig Real Brush Pens.
The patterned paper is from my stash and the sentiment is from a clear set by Penny Black. I used Mica Flakes to make it look like snow is flying through the air. These flakes are more white in real life with some iridescent shimmer, but my camera picked up so many colors from the shimmer, that aren't really showing in real life. I also used some Stickles Stardust Glitter on the snowman's hat and a little more on the snow. A few punched snowflakes (Martha Stewart punch) were used to finish off the card.

For my second card I decided to use the cute stamp Bees 'n Bunny also by Penny Black. Another one of my old favorites! Heat embossed on Bristol Vellum paper and also colored with Kuretak Zig Real Brush Pens . I fussy cut the image and adhered it onto inked Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card stock. I used my new Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Dies to cut out the image panel. To make the grass I simply cut into some patterned paper and tucked the flower pot into it.
The sentiment is from Penny Black set Heartfelt. To add more of my old favorites I used a little button and black gingham ribbon.
I hope you'll find some time to join us this week, it's always so much fun to see what everyone's favorites are!
