baby, it’s cold outside + Seasons Givings Blog Hop Winners!


post 1 of 2 for today…click HERE for the Reverse Confetti January Release Day Two.

My super awesome friend, Kimberly, gifted me this adorable Lawn Fawn Winter Alpaca set.  She’s the sweetest, because she knows that Alpaca’s run in my family…LOL…check it out HERE.
I was smitten with the way Chari Moss colored her alpaca HERE.  I tried to duplicate that look.  She used coloring pencils but I masked off his face and scarf and used Tea Dye Distress ink and a mini round ink blending tool.  Just enough color so that he pops off of the oval panel (p.s. having him on foam tape helps too!).

So, I’m on a mission to use up the bazillion paper collections I own.  Sadly, I’m not exaggerating about the quantity.  This card is a petite greeting at 3.5 x 5.0 inches.  

I was thoroughly inspired by the Muse challenge:

Now how fun is Michele’s card?  If you didn’t know, I’m a popcorn-a-holic♡

aha, do you see the inspiration:

black, white + red✔︎
black + white panel✔︎

clean + crisp design✔︎

Thanks to Michele for the awesome inspiration!

  2. First, thanks so much! I'm so tickled about the win; you're so darn sweet! And what a darling little Alpaca!! One of my besties just got her first Big Shot, and this was the first die she bought. It's soooo cute. Love your take on Michele's card; she's colored perfectly. And I love the B&W paper you've used. Paper… this is me: "Hello, my name is Bev, and I'm a paperaholic." So true. So fun! We should go to a meeting together, hahaha! Bev

  3. Wow! I won? That is awesome. Thank you so much! Did I tell you how much I love what you create? And your alpaca card is no exception. I love Michele's card too (of course, I may be biased as we one L Michele's have to stick together that and black, white, and red is one of my favorite color combinations). Keep me posted on how you do with using up your paper stash. I keep saying that I'm not allowed to buy anymore and then I see another collection that I just HAVE to have. I need all the help I can get.
