Snow Much Fun

Hello, there!  It's Andrea here with my last post as a DT member.  I can't believe how quickly the past four months have flown by!  I have had such a blast on this team and am so grateful for this amazing experience.  Now, enough chit chat; how about some cards?
When I first saw Honey Bee Stamps' Snow Birds set, I knew I had to have it!  These birds are just so cute and fun to color that I couldn't resist coloring almost all of them (I didn't have time to get them all on cards yet, but soon, I hope)!  All of the birdies were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  Naturally, I added some highlights and details with my white gel pen.
To create the snow angel on my first card, I stamped the outline image and cut it out.  For this project I used the negative piece and saved the die-cut to use later.  I popped that negative panel on top of the colored image with foam tape and adhered them to a white card.
With MFT Stamps' Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics, I die-cut a black banner.  I stamped a phrase from Snow Birds with Versamark ink and white heat-embossed it.  I went around the snow angel cut-out with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay and added my sentiment underneath with foam tape.  Some Neat & Tangled Snowfall Sequins finish the card.
For my second card, I decided to make a fun scene.  The sky was created by ink-blending Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean distress inks.  I die-cut two snowy hills, adhered the back hill to my sky panel, and added some Tumbled Glass to create a shadow for the front hill.
Using my MISTI I stamped a sentiment from Snow Birds with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear heat-embossed it.  I popped up the front hill with foam tape and adhered my birds to the panel, adding some foam tape behind the hat of the bird in the foreground.  Finally, I glued the whole thing to a white card.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a happy and blessed New Year!
