Tis' The Season...Take Three

Aloha Everyone! Today is our Christmas Stampin' All Year Long's sketch challenge three. Check out the sketch Maria challenged us with. It's great right!?! Looks fairly simple, right!?! So why did I wait until the very last second (before it was due), to create my card??? Why, why, why??? I have to STOP! doing that. It was such a rush job and no one else to blame but me, myself, & I!!! (lol). Although I must admit, it was a fun card to make and I guess it's safe to say that I'm pleased with it, after all.

For a great lift, check out the rest of "CSAYL" divas and their take on this challenge. Hope you'll be inspired and come along and play. Lots of time left to jump in. Have fun and enjoy!

Okay now, here I share with you my very last minute card. In other words...my rush job (lol). I just love this stamp. It's gotta be the cutest. This image is "Snow Family" from Penny Black, which I picked up from Little C's just two days ago and couldn't wait to use it. I created the background using a CB embossing folder, puffy velvet for the rims of their snow caps, and designer snaps (also purchased from Little C's).

As for my snowflake charm, I created this first by cutting out a few snowflakes. Using the cricut, the cartridge "Accent Essentials", and Jen's tutorial on how to create your own chipboard, I went to town. Once my snowflake chipboard was done, I then colored it with a Stampin' Up marker and piled tons of crystal glitter all over it, giving it that crystal effect. IRL this snowflake turned out so pretty. Card Details:
Stamp: "Snow Family" (Penny Black)
Paper: Stock (SU)
Ink: SU markers
Accessories: Ribbon, Glitter, Cricut cartridge "Accent Essentials", Puffy Velvet, Designer Snaps

Have a great week...Aloha and God bless!

hugs in Jesus~
