Ramblings for A Winter Day

I know I've shown this stamp before, but if you're looking for a fast and easy winter card try a plaid background with alcohol inks on gloss cardstock. To create the plaid effect use your felt applicator and make vertical and horizontal wide and thin stripes in single colours.  For this background we used Celery and Stream from the Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  Remember when stamping on top of an alcohol ink background you will need to use a water-proof die ink (Not Stazon).  Ranger's Archival Ink is a good choice.

After last week's snow storm here in London a statement like "think snow" should be forbidden. However, I like the look of this card for a masculine birthday or greeting card.   This great image from Northwoods has been embossed and coloured with Tombow markers.  Embellished with a mylar snowflake, and a gold cord for the sled rope. 

For those of us already wishing for Spring, I had to show you this new embossing folder from Crafts-Too.  I love the open line daisy combined with the dotted scroll.  There is still time for you to put this on your Christmas wishlist.  Only $6.95.
We're getting down to the crunch.  Two weeks from today and the Christmas holiday will be all over.
Happy Crunching.
