ATSM #98 - Holiday

We are back with another amazing challenge this week at Addicted to stamps and more... HOLIDAY which opens up a wide range of ideas, from projects for any festive holiday or for some holiday destinations or whatever comes to your mind when you think about holiday... There are numerous possibilities. Now to my DT card, I went with the Christmas theme for my Holiday card...
To make this card, I was inspired by a few challenges, colors at  Merry Monday Challenge #111 - Aqua, white and splash of color , the theme to use something that is peaceful to u at Jingle Belles - Peace on earth and sketch at 52 Christmas Card challenge - May Pick a previous sketch This card is easy to create, I did some heat embossing and resist inking technique to create a BG and adhered the stamped, colored and fuzzy cut image of snowman.
  
There is a lot more lovely inspiration from the DT, Please visit our challenge blog here. The winner will receive a wonderful prize from our sponsor this week StampArt Designs. Take a peek at their store here


I am excited to see what you will come up with ....

I created another card inspired by few more challenges, I love this cute kitty from Penny Black hugs set and few challenges were giving me just the right idea to use it :) So here's my card...
To make this, I stamped the text BG panel by masking to create a new paper print look. On a circle die cut, I hand drew the lines like that of a yarn ball. Then I stamped, fuzzy cut and colored the cat and adhered all the elements together. I was inspired by these challenges -
1. AAA Cards Game 5 - PLAY
2. Stamplorations Bi-weekly Sketch challenge #13
3. The Card Concept #11
4. Shopping our Stash #154 - Critters
