On Thursday I went over to Judy's and after lunch we sat down and stamped! It's been a while since we stamped together and it felt good. Judy had bought the Snow Place stamp set and coordinating Snow Friends framelits from the Holiday catalogue so we had decided that we were going to make a couple of cards using it. A few weeks back we had seen a card posted by Anne Granger using that set and decided we wanted to CASE it. Anne had followed a layout posted by Kimberly Van Diepen. I had also made a few card using that same layout.
Here are the links
My Cards - Card 1; Card 2; Card 3
When recreating Anne's card we used the same colours but added a bit of texture by using the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing folder for the layer behind the focal image. We considered several different folders but decided on that one because it reminded us of an igloo. Rather than using a piece of ribbon we used the striped stamp from Lots of Joy to create the little bit of horizontal interest.
The card base and embossed panel use the thicker Whisper White card stock now available from Stampin' Up!.
Don't you just love the little penguin?
