Get hoppin with Sweet N Sassy and DRS Designs

Good Monday morning everybody! The biweekly challenge for DRS designs is posted on their blog this morning. Cathy came up with a terrific sketch to work with. My card to show you this morning is fairly simple and straight forward which is sometimes a nice change for me. I think it is still cute though.

I used my snowflake bg stamp, which is a new release bg, to stamp the white panel with my essential glue pad. I then sprinkle glitter over it and put it aside to "set". Then I stamped the blue section with the same stamp using white craft ink. I painted my snowman image with icicle twinkling H2Os and colored the rest of it using my copics. I then put stickles on the scarf and buttons. I accented the sections with my ticket corner punch and finished off by adding pearls to the 4 corners.

here is a close up trying to show the shimmer of the twinkling H2Os on the snowman

stamps- DRS designs G383, P188, H015
CS- prism blue, white, bliss blue
ink- white, essential glue pad, not quite navy
accessories- glitter, pearls, ticket corner punch, stickles, twinkling H2Os, copics

Be sure to check out the DRS blog to see what the other DT members created and for the sketch in case you would like to play along with us.

Today is the start of the sneak peeks for the sweet n sassy stamps release that will occur on Friday Nov. 1st. Let me just say that I really love all the sets for this release and I am sure that you will too! Not to mention that Korin has some awesome surprises planned in honor of SNSS 1 year anniversary. Maybe there will be prizes or sales or... LOL? You will have to stop by and visit the release party on Thursday night to find out more info. But for now, what are you waiting for? Fly on over to the Sweet N Sassy blog to catch the first peek at a totally adorable new set.

Have a wonderful day!

Sounds like this card is full of glimmer & glitz--I'd love to see it in person. This is a great card Janette! Sometimes, being simple is better, and this card follows that!
