Greetings, it's cold outside!

>> Tuesday, January 8, 2019

Hi Everyone,

While the winter hasn't been super snowy for me, and I'm grateful for that, I decided to make a few cards celebrating the season.  Snow outside or not, it's fun to stay inside and partake of my favorite hobby of stamping, so I hope you are inspired to get out your stamps as well.

I have a simple embossed background of poinsettias, and I colored up the Bird Feeder
 stamp, die cutting it and attaching it with dimensional foam tape.  I wanted it to be a generic card, available to use for any occasion, so I inked up the word Greetings, from the Seas and Greetings stamp, attaching it in the same manner as my image. A few pale green gems finished it off. 

Originally, I was going to pair up the Baby it's Cold Outside Greeting with a snowman stamp, but I feel like I've done that before.  I chose to be a bit more creative, and took the hat and scarf elements from the Medium Mr. Snowman, and paper pieced them on to the Paper Coffee Cup
adding some googly eyes and a small punched heart. So, it's a snowman coffee cup, I guess? Anyway, I hope you think he's as cute as I do :)

 I layered everything onto a background that was stamped using the Interlocking Snow background stamp and a piece of embossed snowflake paper. 

Here's to staying warm and inky this winter season...
Have a great day!

OH my goodness Karin , these are adorable! I like how you used just the "greetings" part of the new sentiment on the first card. Your second card is my favorite! Love how you turned the coffee cup into a snowman! So cute & creative! I may be casing this one! 😊

Your bird greeting card is beautiful Karin! Excellent background and coloring! However, it's your adorable and incredibly clever snowman coffee cup that is over the top terrific! He is just as cute as cute can be!

Karin, these cards are sooooo great! The bird feeder card is colored up so well and how cool that you used part of the new Seas and Greetings sentiment. Love the EF you used too. The snowman coffee cup is just the cutest! What a brilliant idea - I so wish I would have thought of it!!!! Fun, fun, fun. Hugz
