Sketchy Snowman

I had a lot of trouble with this sketch layout from SCS today, I guess that's why they call it a challenge! I used my newly won snowlady image from Impression Obsession with Stampin' Up cardstock and paper, lace ribbon and pearls. Embossed Real Red panel with snowflake folder. (Northern Flurries?)

This card uses a gingerbread house from Inkadinkado embossed in Creamy Caramel craft with clear powder. The candies at the top are SU's Sweet Holidays, the sentiment is from To You and Yours. Ribbon , cardstock and embossing folder are all by Stampin' Up also. The snow glitter on the bottom is by Martha Stewart.

Gingerbread House

I used the Sweet Holidays set from Stampin' Up for the sentiment and the gingerbread set from Martha Stewart with her drippy goo punch and snow glitter for the ground.

Sweet Stocking

My favorite new toy is this Stampin' Up stocking die. There are so many fun possibilities and it's such a time saver from when I cut these out by hand. I used Real Red cardstock and embossed the snowflake wheel with white powder. The gingerbread man is also by Sizzix (not SU), stamp set is retired Sweet Holidays. A hanger was attached to make this an ornament that will probably go on my fireplace.

Stampin' Craft Ink Spots Quilt

This is a card I had just finished up the other day to go into my next card shipment for the troops and thought it would work for today's Splitcoast challenge. I used the SU color spots to make the blocks and then embossed the whole piece with the lattice squares folder. The stitched lines were from the SU jumbo wheel that I cut apart into individual strips.
I know that this image is from SU but I don't know the name of it since it was from a wish rak. If anyone knows, I'd love to fill in the right info for the category.

Sparkly Snowman

I love sparkle so I thought I would try my hand at yesterday's Splitcoast glitter painting tutorial. I used an adhesive sheet with a Lasting Impressions brass snowman template. Get a load of that hat! I poured glitter (Stampin' Up and Martha Stewart) carefully into each area of snowman and pressed it down, removed template and covered remaining area in crystal glitter. Paper and cardstocks are by SU.

Santa's Boots

Another project using the SU Sizzix stocking die. Boots in Basic Black. I covered them in Versamark and then clear embossing powder so they are shiny. Cuffs are embossed with Lattice Squares embossing folder. Cherry Cobbler ribbon to hang and poinsettia die from Spellbinders.

Hobby Horse Stocking

I cased this cute idea from Michelle Suit on Splitcoast. Sizzix stocking die in Creamy Caramel, edges inked in Tangerine Tango. Old retired SU ribbon, large brads, yarn for mane, poinsettia die cut with rhinestones to embellish. Jumbo candy cane for stick, a great gift treat holder!

Doilies as Snowflakes

I wanted to try the Delicate Doilies set as snowflake ornaments using silver and white embossing powders in Island Indigo cardstock. I may give this a little spritz with the Vanilla Smooch Spritz for some more sparkle.
The second card uses Mark's Finest Papers set called Christmas Postage Due with SU cardstocks of Cherry and Mustard.
