Got Snow? A Snowman Card For My Sheri Crafts

It's been cold here in sunny AZ, which is surprising since we usually have very pleasant "you can still wear shorts" winter.   This is my second winter card for the design team since as Sheri pointed out, I had a big "Ooops!".  I did not put a snowman/snowgirl in my project.  Needless to say, I rummaged through my stamp collection and found this snowman stamp from Savvy Stamps.  I colored the image with Copic markers.

Here is the color guide:

Snowman: B00, B02, B05
Hat: B32, B34, B37
Shadow: W03

I cut the frame at 3" using the Lacy Labels cartridge and embossed it using the Snowflake folder from Cuttlebug's Winter Wonderland set.  The plaid cloth tape is from Maya Road.  I cut the frame for the snowman and the snowflakes using Spellbinders dies.  I added Stickles and some blue crystals from the Paper Studio for added sparkle.

Winter Wonderland Card

This was actually an "Ooops!" card.  I submitted this as a design team project and the theme was "Got Snow" and I did not read the directives that said to include a snowman/snowgirl.   I loved this image of a cardinal so much and I wanted to use it since I haven't made any project using this folder. :-)  I decided to post it anyway since I was pretty happy with it.

This card measures 5"x5".  I used cardstock from Core'dinations so I could distress the edges and sand the raised areas.  Cuttlebug folders that were used were from the Winter Wonderland set.  The frame which measures 4 1/2" was cut using the Lacy Labels Cricut cartridge.  I added blue crystals of various sizes and inking to soften the overall look.

Crimson Tide Layout For My Sheri Crafts

We have a sports theme to open the New Year at My Sheri Crafts. :-)  My husband's family are such big fans of the Crimson Tide.  The baby, being the youngest member, is being exposed to football early.  He loves to tackle his stuffed animals and kick his ball so maybe we have a future football player here. :-D The picture of the baby at 4 months was taken while watching a Crimson Tide ball game on TV and the ones of him at 14 months were taken when he was playing at the park.

The fonts of the layout is from the Cricut Old West cartridge, cut at 1 1/2".  The punched star border is from Martha Stewart.  The elephant from New Arrival was cut at 2" and I added googly eyes and chalk to give it more dimension.  The pictures, letters and journaling were all pop-dotted.
