Stamping Bella Challenge/Papertake Weekly Challenge 4 Seasons



This is my Stamping Bella Challenge card for the week and it also is for Papertake Weekly Challenge which is celebrating the 4 seasons. My season of course is Winter. I used the new image from Stamping Bella called Hats and Mitts. I love this paper from Cosmo Cricket called Smitten Mitten, and this is the second card I've done with it this week. I'm going to have to buy more real soon. LOL. I added glitter to the stamped image that I colored with my Lyra's and Mineral Spirits. You know me and glitter. I used my EK Success punch to make the middle trim match the pom poms. I then used my pink pom pom trim, and cut a few off to add to the little tag on the bottom and of course one on the hat. I used the sentiment Warm Hugs from Stamping Bella. I love this sentiment and I can see I'll be using it a lot. Enjoy this hot and humid day, almost seems wrong to do a winter card today.

Great job Carolyn. Very pretty. The pom pom on the touque really takes me back to my childhood and the hats my grandma used to make for me. The only problem was that she made the pom poms so big, it was like trying to balance a brick on your head. Man do I miss that. HA!HA!HA!

Hi Carolyn,
Thank you for the kind comment you put on my blog. Love this card, you have themed it so well. The DPs are perfect for the image, but it's the pom-poms I like best, & how clever to mirror them in the punch!
Regards,
Andie xx
