Eskimo Kisses

Happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend. It was cold and rainy our way, perfect for doing nothing much. I lazied around in my PJ's until 2pm on Saturday. I can't tell you the last time I did that when I wasn't sick. I also got some good quality stamping time in.

Today is Challenge #34 over at Stampavie and the focus of this challenge is to use at least one die cut in your project. I went for 3 on this card.

This adorable image is by Mo Manning, called Siku and Shiya. The high quality clear stamps from Stampavie really show with such detailed images. Crisp, clean, wonderful! My friend Cheryl Rowley sent me some of the new Xpress It blending paper to try out and I gotta say...WOW! It is wonderful with Copics.

I used the Spellbinder Labels 15 to cut out my image and then layered it over the Lacey Squares die. I dug out some old SU chipboard die cuts I had and after painting the snowflake with white Crackle paint, I added some glass glitter to it.

I wasn't sure about a sentiment for this one, it could go Christmas or more Valentiney. Maybe even a winter anniversary. I guess I will wait until the right occasion comes along.

Consider playing along with the challenge. You have 2 weeks to link your project on the Stampavie blog. Someone will be drawn for a prize!

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon.
