Hello, happy Sunday! It's been snowing here in southeast Missouri so I've only left the house today to shovel my front porch and walkway. I've spent the rest of the day holed up in my warm fuzzy lounge pants watching True Blood episodes and creating fun things with ink. Today's card was created for the latest The Paper Players challenge and is pretty clean and simple, which if you follow my blog you will know doesn't come easily for me. I like a lot of layers and complexity with colors and patterned papers. But this one was fun and easy to create. I started with a plain piece of white cardstock that I treated with my anti-static tool by EK Success and then stamped the snow from Altenew's Snowing mini-stamp set using Versamark clear ink. I then heat embossed it using Recollections fine detailed embossing powder in Snow. I then stamped Altenew's Winter Cottage image below using Versafine onyx black ink. Once that was dry I went over the trees and the roofline with my Zig two way glue pen and sprinkled some detailed clear sparkling glitter by Wow over the images and knocked the excess off. I then die cut the panel using a stitched edge rectangle die by Gina Marie Designs and inked the top of the panel using my Tim Holtz distress inks. I love how this card turned out. I hope you do too!

I sure do, Celeste! You should do more clean and simple, because you have a terrific touch with it! Everything is crisp and clean and that misty blue snowy sky is everything!! Hugs, Darnell
Nicely done! Love the transition from the blended part to the clean, white part.
