In the meanwhile, you're dying to start the year off with some creativity right? This week we're al about Let it Snow. It's perfect, because the temperatures has been unbearably frigid in New Jersey. The kind that stings the face when there is a hint of a little wind. I keep asking myself "Where is the snow?"
Here's a card made with a Meljen's Design. One of my first projects for a DT that I had applied to, actually was with a Meljen's Designs. So I am quite familiar with Melissa's work and products. I love how easy they are to print off and use!
Stamps: (Cozy Star) Meljen's Designs; (Join Us) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Spring Rain) Papertrey Ink; (Boxer) Basic Grey; (Red card stock) Scraps
Ink: (Versamark) Tsukineko; (Perfect Match Pigment Ink - Fresh Snow) Papertrey Ink
Embellishments: (Border Punch - Upper Crust) Fiskars; (Artists' Color Acrylic Series - Brilliant White) Utrecht; (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (Sharpie Pen - Fine Point) Sharpie; (Stella Rose Gertie Collection - "Little One" Label Stickers) My Mind's Eye; (Stickers - rund, schwarz, tr, gelb) Artoz
The card base has snowflakes stamped on with Versamark, then a thin layer of acrylic paint over it. I find that acrylic paint adds dimension without adding physical layers to the card. A neat trick that I am starting to grow more fond. The beautiful Cozy Star is colored with my good old Primacolors and traced over with a black Sharpie to make it look crisper.
I find it quite adorable like this. I tried to find a "Twinkle Twinkle" sentiment, but no luck. Instead I stumbled into this fun little Stella Rose label, which I thought fit the card's overall look. It's a fun, round yellow hue with a lovely cheery sentiment. And who doesn't like some bling, right?
Well, there you go. I hope you liked this little fella. Check out the rest of the DTs samples. They will knock your winter woolly socks right off! You have until next Wednesday to enter, and I hope a card by you :) In the meantime, happy new year and lots of creative mojo wishes to you ...
