Stamps and Smiles Fall/Winter Release - Day 2

Hello! Welcome back for Day 2 of the Stamps and Smiles Fall/Winter Release! Today's featured stamp set is Cuppy's Winter Wonderland and we have a wonderful sketch for you to play along with.

This set has so many fun images to play with...first off there's Cuppy and you can dress her as you wish, I decided to give her a Santa hat and scarf. The snowflakes are also a part of the set, along with the mini Cuppy in the middle of my fabric flower. Of course Cuppy was colored with my Copics. I stamped the snowflakes in Momento Rich Cocoa and Versamark Dazzle for some subtle shimmer in real life. I added white liquid applique to Cuppy's hat for some added dimension. I just LOVE liquid applique, it gives you that "Santa Hat Fluff" look!
I found some wonderful tutorials in the past few weeks and decided to try a couple out on this card! First off is the fabric flower, these are so FAST and EASY to make! Heather Bailey has an amazing tutorial where she uses the fabric she creates and makes these masterpiece flowers. I first saw these amazing flowers on Dawn McVey's blog and had to give it a whirl. Seriously I made 2 of these flowers in less than 5 minutes. I see my new addiction becoming fabric now! Eeek!
The second new technique that I tried was making a ribbon frame. Yvonne had a fun tutorial over at StampArtic so I decided to give that a try too! I am entering this card in the Caardvarks Challenge to use ribbon in a wonderful way! Another fun and easy addition to make a card beautiful! Not as fast as making the fabric flowers....but quite easy! Maybe I can use up some of my never ending supply of ribbon now! I swear I could open up a ribbon shop at my house!
Now make sure you head on over to the Stamps and Smiles blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!

Hi my sweet friend!

I'm so sorry that I have'nt visited you for a while, but I've been SO occupied with everything at home...

Everything you make is SO georgeous, hun! I really like the colours you use, and all the pretty little details! And those new cute and funny images you've used on these last two cards, are just awesome!

Tomorrow I'm going on a mini-vacation together with my mum and my children, to a SPA-Hotel called Savalen up in the mountains nearby Tynset! I'm so looking forward to that, after being sick with fever since saturday ;(

Hope you're doing great, sweetie!
Love & hugs, Lena
