Spoon Full of Sugar - Winter Wonderland -

Spoon Full of Sugar day and today it is a Winter Wonderland! A Winter theme for cards - should be really easy with all the fabulous Christmas images out there. But me... I had NO MOJO this week. NONE.. Froze up Solid. Winter Wonderland - this card took me 4 nights to make, and lots of wasted paper thrown into the trash. And I am still unhappy with the finished card... but time was out and I just wasn't going to get to where I was happy... So here it is.

Now I am always happy with the Stampavie images... and this was a first time for me to color up Polar Present by Laurence, and I really enjoyed using it, was very fast to work with. Coloring with Copics, Stickles for some sparkle, and then for that snow.. Martha Stewarts Snow Glitter - really cool stuff, just need to figure out how to use it better.

Nestie label 4 to cut out. For the pattern paper I used DCWV Christmas stack for the one pattern, then the second I made it myself. I think I like it.... A piece of Core'dination card stock, embossed with my Spellbinders Snowflake Embossing die. I have had this forever! And first time I have used it. Not as easy to use as Cuttlebug folders, I think I need to google some better instructions. After running it through my Big Shot Pro, I sanded it, but then it needed that extra punch.. so I sprayed the entire piece with Vanilla Smooch Spritz. I am so in love with this stuff!! ;0)

The scalloped piece I found in my stash, I think it is also from Martha Stewart, had self adhesive and I was frustrated at how blah this card was. Silver Ribbon didn't even help it for me.....

Then I decided that sometimes you just don't feel a card - and this was mine for now, so finish it up and move on!! I did... started working on a 3-D project that I am just loving... LOL I'll show it off as soon as finished with it, but has lots of layers so it is taking me a while.

So until then  - why don't you surf on over to A Spoon Full of Sugar and see the other DT creations, you can see that they didn't get as stumped as I did...
