Good morning! Well, it is looking like March is starting out the same way as it did in 2018, with snow, and lots of it! Here’s what we woke up too in MA today.

I took these pictures from my sunroom window.

Another Wintry Thank You

Today was my first day back to work after almost two weeks of vacation….I got so much done while I was out but, I have to admit….it felt good to be back 🙂

Today I have another wintry snowflake thank you card. It has a clean and simple look, I hope you like it.

This card features Nuvo Shimmer Powders which were used to create a background on watercolor paper. I saved the background in my stash and used it to die cut the word thanks and I also cut a strip and glued it behind the snowflake border. The color is rich, shimmery and beautiful!

Here are the supplies I used in my card: My Favorite Things Snowflake Dies, Wink of Stella Shimmer Pen, Versamark Ink, Altenew Pure White Embossing Powder, Black Card Stock, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #80, #110, Gina K Crystalline Drops, Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Stamp Set, Concord & 9th Wintry Edge Dies, Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks, My Favorite Things In & Out Stitched Oval STA, Watercolor card stock, Nuvo Shimmer Powder: Atlantis Burst, Blue Blitz, Cherry Bomb, Altenew Inks: Sea Breeze, Aqualicious, Dew Drops, Turquoise, Concord & 9th Turnabout Stamp.

Wintry Thank You

Welcome 2019 and Happy New Year to everyone!

Today I was hoping to bring two new, wintery, thank you cards but one of them had a speck on its sentiment strip that I didn’t notice until I saw the photos. So I’ll share that one tomorrow… if I have a chance to rephotograph it.

Now that Christmas and the holidays are over, many of us have thank you cards that need to be written. Here is one that I made today for a dear friend of mine.

I just love this Concord & 9th Snowflake Turnabout Stamp.

This card features an inlaid YOU sentiment that has been built up with 5 layers of white card stock behind the snowflake top layer. Here are the supplies I used: Concord & 9th All About You dies, Concord & 9th Snowflake Turnabout Stamp, Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Sea Breeze, Aqualicious, Dew Drops, Turquoise; My Favorite Things Snowflake dies, Nuvo Shimmer Powder: Atlantis Burst, Bue Blitz, Cherry Bomb; Watercolor card stock, Simon Says StampTiny Words Stamp, Pretty Pink Posh sequins, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White #80, #110 card stock, and craft foam.

To make this card I used Altenew inks to stamp the Snowflake Turnabout stamp, changing colors each time I turned the stamp. I cut my panel down to 4″ x 5 1/4″. I cut the colored snowflakes, the thanks, and the background of YOU from pre-created card stock that I had in my stash. This pre-created card stock was made using watercolor card stock and Nuvo shimmer powders in Atlantis Burst, Blue Blitz and Cherry Bomb. (I sprayed the watercolor paper with water and then sprinkled the paper with a little of each color, spritzing with water and tilting the card stock until I liked how the background looked.) After die cutting the words thank and you from their respective card stocks, I cut 5 more of each of them in #80 white card stock, glueing all of them one on top of the other. I put craft foam on the back of the card front except where the word YOU had been die cut out. I glued craft foam around the cut-out YOU on the back of the card front. After adhering the card front to the card base, I inlaid the word YOU  and glued the word thanks and the white heat embossed sentiment in place.

Here is a close up:

The card was embellished with Pretty Pink Posh sequins and snowflakes cut from white card stock and card stock detailed with Nuvo Shimmer Powders. I also used a Wink of Stella Shimmer Pen over the snowflakes and thank sentiment (after picture was taken).
