Flaky Snowmen


Stamps: Flaky Friends, So Many Sayings
Card Stock: Fabriano Medioevalis
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Stampin' Write markers, clear & gold Spica Glitter pens
Accessories: light blue dotted May Arts ribbon, Hero Arts Gemstones, Aqua Painter, Square Nestabilites & Big Shot

I've been busy working on more Christmas cards. Even though I haven't gotten them all colored yet...I thought I would share anyhow. The beautiful card stock is 5x5 Fabriano Medioevalis that I purchased at Starlit Studio (see link to the right). I saw some gorgeous cards that Bethany made, that reminded me of another way to use my Nestabilities. It's a perfect technique to "dress up" a simple card. The stamps are all SU and I colored the image with my SU markers and Aqua Painter. The bling is Hero Arts, and the ribbon is May Arts.

Thanks for looking!!

Rose Ann, these cards are so cute! I love the one layer look, especially with the embossing around the snowmen! Is this paper like a watercolour paper? I love to use my SU! markers and aqua painters.
Have a fab Friday!

Another reason I wish I had Nestabilities. You have done a gorgeous job on your cards so far.

Love it! Very elegant and simple at the same time. Although I'm not sure about all that coloring for Christmas cards. It's my least favorite task!
