GinaK Designs Warm Winter Wishes Blog Hop

Welcome to the Warm Winter Wishes blog hop. Not only is this set adorable, but 100% of the proceeds from its sale benefits the Alzheimer's Association. This cute set was illustrated by the fabulous Carolyn King.

Card #1 is paper pieced using Cosmo Cricket Jolly By Golly patterned papers (I used the same papers on all cards). The sentiment was stamped with Vivid Vintage Green and die cut with Spellbinders double ended tags. The button is from the Holiday Button Assortment buttons. That big ribbon is a neat find from a store in Austria (we only live about an hour from the border). Isn't it beautiful?

Card #2 - I stamped the snowflakes (from the Stamp TV kit, Holiday Cheer) with white pigment ink and glued glitter in the center and on the heart. Using the Quickie Glue pen makes this step a cinch. The card base is In the Navy. The buttons and ribbons are from my stash.

Card #3 uses the All Spruced Up CS and ribbon. I used the Inkssential White Glue Pen to faux stitch around the front panel. The buttons are from the Holiday Assortment. The snowman was colored using Memento Cottage Ivy (hat and stripes on the scarf) and Copic R85 (heart), R39 (scarf, WG01 and WG03 for shading.
