Let it Snow!

 It's snowing outside my window today. I really shouldn't complain because, for the first time in several years, we had a long, beautiful summer. And so, I am weather inspired.

I pulled out some oldies and mixed them up with some new stamps I have to create this little card.

Neither this sizzix snowflake die or this Martha Stewart punch have see the light of day for at least a year. I added some clear glue and poured on the glitter! It looks divine IRL.

Then, I used a PERFECT set of Christmas sentiments by Flourished that I just received from i {heart} papers. I might not be part of the team right now, but I really do {heart} ihp!! Since the stamps are acrylic, I used Tuxedo Black Memento ink for that perfect coverage.

I got this image from Pure Innocence, an Espy store. I think he's darling!! Since I'm a little rusty, I applied glue and glitter to the snowflakes BEFORE I cut it out using my Big Shot, and so I lost all the dimension of my 'snowflakes'. They turned out to be BIG, FAT fluffy flakes instead. Note to self: take time away from teaching and studying to craft a little, eh!!

I am quite pleased that I haven't lost too much of my touch with my copic markers. I was really nervous since it's been months since I cracked a copic to colour!!

Thanks for popping by, and bear with me as I adjust to teaching high school full-time and continue with graduate studies. I'll be in and out as much as I can, but this are much more out these days. xoxo
