Some Things Old, Some Things New

 

Christmas has gone by, and I only got half the cards out that I’d hoped.  In this New Year, one nice thing is that we are just seeing our first snow here. I think snowflakes work out great for thank you cards for those holiday gifts!  This is one I’ll be sending out soon.

For this card, I dug out my vellum and embossed my new Crystal Flurries stamps by The Ton stamps on it with some glittery blue embossing powder I have had in my stash a long while.  I adhered the vellum down just under the snowflakes, so it looks like a loose overlay around the edges.  I just love the new DCWV Glitzy cardstock I received as one of my gifts!  The glitter doesn’t come off at all and the sparkle is awesome!   I used a cute die cut from Simon Says Stamp.

Little Winter Fairy

I really admire the beautiful images at A Day for Daisies.  The talented folks that make paper crafts with these images are amazing as well!  Other than a simple bunnies design, I have been pretty afraid to try to color any of these images – because the bar is set so high!  So, this is my first try at coloring a more detailed image.  It is called “Little Winter” and it was a freebie on their blog awhile back.  I like how her wings almost look like winter scarves as well.  I do not see it in their shop, but there are so many other lovely options!  I wanted to keep the colors very muted because on a gray-skied day when it starts to snow, things are always monochromatic outside.  There is a slight sparkle in her hair with a Wink of Stella pen that is hard to see in the photo.  This is my first try at using Copic Opaque White paint as well.
