The House That Stamps Built: Designers Choice

This week is Shirley's choice at The House That Stamps Built  and she choose:
 It's Up In The Air!


I went with one of the fun Quartet Sets:  8503-U, Moments Quartet
 First I inked the  saying up in black, stamped, cleaned the stamp and reinked
in Versamark ink and embossed with clear.  Then came the fun applying the
 following  Distress Oxides randomly: Mustard seed, Picked raspberry,
Seedless preserves and Peacock feathers.   A bit of layering, use of a Martha
 Stewart punch and die cutting 8606 Birthday with a Quick cutz die I had
 the card above.

The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes


Yes, it is that time again, Anything Goes at  The House That Stamps Built,
and how do I know that?  I got a message from Wendy, the owner of
Repeat Impressions, asking where my card was.  I set a record
making this card.  Luckily I had made a similar card the night
before so I was able to quickly CASE myself.
 
Wendy has designed several cute winter penguins, I used
8808-E, Knit Cap Penguin and 9106-G, Sending Smiles.
I created the snow with a Taylored Expressions
Snowfall embossing folder.  Distressing with Memento
Summer Sky and coloring with Copics. 
 
I kept my card simple without any glitter as I am starting on Cards
for Little Hearts,  a winter card drive for children in two heart hospitals,
who have congenital heart disease run yearly by
Christina Hor.  It runs October 1 to November 1 if
you would like to join in, every card helps.
