Good morning y'all! Today starts a new linky party over at Craftin' Desert Divas. The theme is Christmas. That is an easy one, especially since most of us are already in (or will be) into the Christmas spirit of making cards etc.
For my card I used a couple of the new sets that were released this week. For the background I used the Across the Border stamp set for the snow background. I stamped and embossed several lines of the snow stamp flipping it to make the pattern a bit different. Then I used some Tim Holtz distress inks to give the sky some color.
Next I put my scor tape on some white cardstock and ran it thru my Cuttlebug using the hill die from Outdoor Landscapes die set. I peeled the tape off and sprinkled my Snow flower soft on top to give it that fluffy snow look. The street lamp is from the Rudy stamp set which I colored than cut out and tucked it behind one of the hills.
To get the adorable birdie wearing the hat from the Chilly stamp set, I first stamped the hat on the paper then masked it with my Post It paper. Next I stamped the Chickie from the new Chickie stamp set and peeled up the post it paper and wahla! Easy peasy way to Winterize that adorable Chick! I just adore that bird. The sentiment came from the Tis' The Season stamp set which I embossed in black.
I hope you come on by and play along with our Christmas challenge over at CDD!.
