I decided to break out the winter stamps for this week's 2 Sketches 4 You. The papers are all Heidi Grace Designs for Fiskers. I love the soft texture of the flocked velvet snowflakes on the shimmery white background. The snowman is from Inkadinkado and the sentiment is Hero Arts Holiday Cheer Messages. The ink is some new Navy Ink from Impress (so far, love this ink).
I centered my snowflake punch over the snowflake designs in the blue and shimmery papers before punching. I attached the snowflakes in the center with tiny glue dots and adorned them with adhesive glitter domes.
I realize it's a bit of a stretch, but I also thought about this week's 52-Card Pick-up Challenge theme of Imagination when I made this card. I remembered how playing in the snow as a child sparked all sorts of imaginative ideas ... building snowmen that we imagined would come to life like Frosty ... tunneling into snow banks to make secret forts ... lying on our backs in the snow making snow angels ... sliding around on patches of ice pretending to be Olympic figure skaters ... and if we were really lucky, turning a fresh snowfall into delicious snow ice cream.
Hopefully this winter when we're buried in the unavoidable inches and inches of snow, I'll focus more on the fun that comes with imagination ... and less on the work that transpires when we have to shovel out. Let it Snow!
