Carolyn King's "Warm Winter Wishes" Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to Carolyn King's blog hop featuring her wonderful new stamp, "Warm Winter Wishes"!! If you've been reading my blog you know that Carolyn is donating all her proceeds for this set in memory of her Grandmother to the Alzheimer's Association. No WONDER winter is warm in her eyes... SHE has a wonderfully warm heart!! My first card I decided to go pretty basic. I used the background "love" stamp and bordered it with red card stock. I left my snowman stamped in just Momento Tuxedo Black ink and only colored his holly and heart. I really like the simplicity of this card.

For my next card I stamped all my snowmen and colored them in different hats and scarves. Then I used my Copic markers to make their hearts appear to be on fire! Get it... WARM wishes??? Hee Hee... I make myself laugh!!

Now... want to know how the TAG came about??? Well... when you're busy stamping and creating at TWO locations... sometimes... things get left behind. Likeeee...... a Cuttlebug.... a Big Shot!!!! Grrrrr. So... I used a tag punch and put my sentiment on that. Now you won't be able to fit it in an A2 envelope, but for those of you who like those totally square cards... I'm sure it will fit in one of those envelopes! *smile*

My last card tonight was MY idea of "building a snowman"!!! LOL I didn't want to glitter the whole thing so I just used my Sakura Glitter Pen and hit a few spots on the white circles and on the snow man with it. I left my coloring to a minimum also.

For the snowflake, I used the "love" background stamp and stamped it in red... then used my black ink to stamp the snowflakes over it and cut them out.

I added a row of lace and then my sheer white ribbon tied around the bottom.

Be sure to check out Carolyn's blog later in the week for even more cards I created using her wonderful set.
