I love these colors. I like them much better than the traditional red and black. I had this idea for a hand stitched snowflake, and this it what I came up with. It actually took a few tries to get it to look right. But I like how it turned out. I just came with a line drawing of the snowflake and drew it lightly on the blue cardstock. Then I pierced holes all along the pattern. After that I just hand stitched it. I'll be honest though, it took quite awhile to stitch it. But I had fun :) The rest of the card is pretty simple, but I wanted to keep it that way.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are having a peaceful, pest-free week :)

I *LOVE* how the text in Chocolate looks stamped on the Berry Sorbet cardstock. LOVE. And this little snowman is the whole reason I get this set from Papertrey last Christmas. Isn't he too cute?! I decided to give him a scarf though, by piercing some holes on either side of his neck and threading some rustic button twine through. I secured it with just a dot of liquid glue. The snowflake circles are up on popdots, just for some added dimension. I also used some twine to handstitch down the sides. You can only see a little of the dark brown base, but I think it adds a nice touch. I added a strip of Melon Berry cardstock at the bottom just for a splash of color :)

I used Papertrey's Turning a New Leaf for the leaves on the kraft panel. I inked the edges a bit too. I love the way dark brown looks on kraft...sigh:) I used versmark to stamp the text on the spring moss cardstock. For the butterflies, I punched them twice--once in white and once in clear acetate. Then I stamped the same leaf image from before on them with white Stayzon ink. I adhered them with glue dots and put pearls on top. The sentiment is from Verve's Black tie Birdies.

Just some pictures of my silly cute boys:) I really like the hand stitching I did around the edges. But to be honest, I think I it is missing something in the upper right section. I debated about it while I was making it. But it was until I took these pictures that I was sure. SO, most likely, as soon as I am done with this and if Miss Emma stays content :), I will be adding something there. I'll post it again once I do and you all can see if you agree with me :)
I think all the patten papers are from Fancy Pants. I buy from several manufacturers, but Fancy Pants ones almost always turn out to be my favorites. I love Basic Grey too, but I often find those a little harder to actually use for some reason. That never stops me from getting them though heehee :) And when I DO use them, I always like them.
Well, thanks for stopping by!! I've enjoyed the break we had here, but it has really messed up everyone's schedules, especially Miss Emma's. I'm hoping to get everyone back on the right track tonight and tomorrow so we can start back happily:) on Thursday. I hope are having a fun week!!
