Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop

Today's card was made for the Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop.  The theme for the blog hop this month is SNOW!  So I pulled out my Betsy Veldman's Shaker Dies along with the PTI stamp and dies called City Scene.  The plaid paper is from Paper Studio's There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  For the snow I used Stampendous Shaved Ice Glitter.  There is a lot of glare from the acetate sheet and shaved ice, so it's hard to see the city scene, but the colors are as bold as the paper.

Birthday Card Using Art Impressions "Birdie"

With fall being busy with a wedding and with some us being sick, we are lumping all of our birthdays together and celebrating on Thanksgiving.  So I needed a card for my sister-in-law.  They live on a farm, so "Birdie" from Art Impressions was a perfect fit.  I colored her with Copics and the papers are from Prima Marketing called Doodle Deux.  The sentiment also from AI is called Spring Chicken.  I masked off the bottom of the sentiment stamp just stamping the first two lines for the front of the card and the remainder of the sentiment was used for the inside.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by and if you are in that cold snap like us - stay warm!!!

Art Impression Zoo or Animal Challenge

Well, I'm back with another card for the Art Impression Blog challenge of Zoo or Animals.  I know you're going to say another "front & back" card, but I can't help myself.  For this card I used one of AI's newer releases called mini front & backs elephant & pig set.  They also have coordinating dies, which make these a breeze to stamp, color & cut.  I just think these are super cute!  The papers are from the Cratepaper Farmhouse collection and the diecut was from MFT's Transformables Die-namics Say Hello set. 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
