OSAT Blog Hop - Let It Snow


I am so pleased to be a guest designer on the OSAT Blog Hop again this month. If you are hopping along, you got to me from Kelly's blog.  Weren't her projects just wonderful!  The theme this month is Let It Snow, and the snowy hills and sledders on these projects are just so fun!  I sure do wish that I could see that much snow...but then again, not really.  Snow is pretty for a day, but then it is just a mess down here in the South.

I started with the awesome blue swirly snow background paper from my local scrapbook store, and then added a couple of snowy hills using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders.  The cute little sledder is from Impression Obsession Die108-F, and he (or she) looks to be having so much fun in the snow.


For my project this month, I decided to make a matching gift tag, using the same elements and the retired Simon Says Stamp Large Tags die.  The sledder just fits perfectly on this tag, and I can't wait to use this set at Christmas!

PS - This would be an awesome card to use as a template for the Caring Hearts Card Drive.  As a matter of fact, I plan to make more of these cards and get them in the mail soon!

Leafy Thanks - CYCI #140


If you haven't heard, Can You Case It is back!!  I'm so excited to once again be part of the team and do these challenges.  It is going to be an exciting time!  For my card on this challenge, I used the Carta Bella Crisp Autumn stencil with some white pigment ink and then the Tim Holtz Distress inks were stenciled just slightly off center from the white.  I then made the focal point with the stamp and die set from the Hero Arts September My Monthly Hero Kit (which is sold out).  Hero Arts has their next My Monthly Hero Kit going on sale tomorrow (11/7/2016), if you want to get in on that action.


Please note that you now have 2 weeks to participate in the CYCI challenges, and I hope to see you play along with us!

Have a good day.
Kayla
