Even though Christmas is over and it is nearly 80 degrees where I live, it is technically still Winter and do I have some fun Winter cards for you today! It's time for our quarterly Four of a Kind blog hop with Joyce (this month's hostess), Kim, Renee and me. In early December, Joyce sent us a fabulous kit...jam packed with all kinds of patterned papers, die cuts and embellishments all prepared to help us make some Winter/Christmas cards in time to photograph and then mail out for the 2013 Christmas season. I only got two cards done before Christmas, but they are long gone now and only these photographs left in their place. Here's the great kit Joyce sent us:
I was very excited to see that Joyce sent us stamped images from Papertrey Ink's Two Feet Deep. It was a set I really wish I had gotten and could not wait to use it. I also loved the patterned papers from Carta Bella Winter Fun collection. The blue, kraft and cranberry colors looked so beautiful together. Here are my cards:
This one is my favorite...loved those skis and the Snow diecuts. I got to use a lot of patterned paper on this too!
Isn't that the cutest sled? My very favorite image from the Two Feet Deep Stamp set. I also loved the loopy border die Joyce sent us too.
You might think I did a lot of stamping on this card, but you would be WRONG! The patterned paper already had the cute silhouettes, polka dot trees and swirls. I just crimped the tag and added the other embellishments.
I got to use that cute sled again as well as some of the pretty patterned paper and a large Lil Inker snowflake.
This last card was so fun to make...kind of an organized mess when you think of all the kit pieces that went into it. I did learn that I should NEVER make my own snow shoes...they are very hard to lace! I also added a very cute bow to the bottom of the snow shoes. The die is from Mama Elephant and was a gift from Joyce, so I had to add it to the mix.
This was lots of fun this month...I can hardly wait to see what Joyce, Kim and Renee have made with their kits. Here's a link to their blogs so you can take a peek at their great cards! Thank you Joyce once again for a really fun kit!
