Now on to the Tundra!!






I used Paper Temptress' Crystal Clear paper to make this floating card. There is just enough room to write out a note underneath Walgruff.  The snow is stamped on Poison Ivory Incandescent Paper.  It has a great sheen to it and takes the watercolor really well.  In real life, there is a shimmer on that snowy landscape! (Detail shows it a little better.)
 

 






How can your heart not melt with this Valentine card!


Stickles...always perfect for every card!


Mooth was decorated for the Christmas season using an ornament stamp found in Santa's Sweet Shoppe which is sold by Starving Artistamps.l


Who needs patterned papers when you have this adorable fauna of the artic??


All embossing on this card used an irridescent embossing powder.


"Juno" who loves you?  I do! haha.  Now..maybe I need to make that into a card for real?  Here is another sweet card for someone you care about.  Aaaaaw!


Hey... you can show your love...Inside and Out!



On the white areas, this card was coated with extra thick embossing powder, twice...for an icy finish.  Note the lower left hand corner that shows off the texture.


Although icy on the outside, the inside is hot!  A great place to write something that will heat up your one and only!

 
 I used a speckled white for this card's snowy background.  It kept it simple...yet the specks give interest.  Oooh, you just gotta love those fish!  Those fish eyes!!


Thank you for stopping by my blog!!  This was the last stop today.  Did you remember to put comments on all the stops?  Ooh, someone is going to be one happy stamper!  Thank you for hopping with us, you can find the new Arctic and much more on our website: http://www.starving artistamps.com.

DoodleFactory said...

hah, do you work in PR because you are always so great at touting the versatility and various uses of these stamp sets. You're still DF's best cheerleader!

I think I love your igloo card the best - it's simple but I love the hint at the corner with the mistletoe + the inside little igloo...The frozen fishies are really fun too.
