Happy Monday!!


You will have to forgive me the wonky title to my post....it's almost 2AM and my brain won't thing up anything catchy!!!! I have been catching up on my bluffering today and then at almost 2 in the morning I decide to do a blog post....I must be loosing my mind...LOL!!!!
I was playing around this weekend with my new Rubbernecker stamp set called Snowflakes and Stardust and came up with this design...It was supposed to look like a wreath but after looking at in again, it looks more like an ornament...oh well!!! The set has several different sizes and shapes of snowflakes...I just stamped them in a circle and stamped the sentiment in the center. Snowflakes were also stamped on the background patterned paper and the Spellbinders Snowflakes were sponged and covered with glitter. Ribbon and buttons finishes it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker Snowflakes and Stardust
Paper: White, Cool Caribbean , Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Grey dp
Ink: Old Olive, Regal Rose, Ruby Red, Rich Razzleberry, Cool Caribbean,
Accessories: Glitter, Buttons, Nestabilities, Ribbon, Dimensionals

The Featured Stamper today on Splitcoast is Rachel (Rachelhope13). I have been to Rachel's gallery several times and just love her style...sooo many lovely cards to choose from!!! I decided to case her adorable Hot Stuff card because I have a DGS who will be having a birthday soon and I need a masculine card. I kept the same masculine feel, layout and colors but changed the stamps, shape of card, and used a cowboy instead of a fireman. The Clear Dollar Stamp's Howdy Partner cowboy image was colored with copics and the cowboy hat was popped up for a little dimension. The ribbon, paisley images, and silver pearls finish it off.

Thanks for visiting today....have a great Monday!!!!
