More Magnolia winter club - two challenges combo

I'm so loving the winter club stamps, they are just so cute. I've done this card for two challenges, Ismaki has a fab sketch by Isa with the option to use blue and copper - a combo I've never tried but love!! and Papertake Weekly is snow. Anything snow related - snowmen, snowflakes, snowy scenes etc! I just love these SU felt snow flakes and started the card off working around the gorgeous shade of blue (more like Soft Sky I think - my fav SU colour which was last year's "in colour". Such a shame it's only available for a short time.

The copper mirri is reflecting the lights horribly so I will try and get a better pic tomorrow - if it ever brightens up out there!!

I've coloured the image with distress inks and Twinkling H2O's- the colours I used are:
Distress Inks: Weathered Wood, Black Soot, Antique Linen, Broken China, Vintage Photo, Scattered Straw, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Frayed Burlap
H2O's: China Black, Cedar Wood, Chestnut Brownm Lemondrop, Buttercup, African Jade, Blue Ice and Majestic Blue.
The papers are K&Co Peppermint Twist (I actually plucked up the courage to cut some!!)
I coloured the cuttlebugged layer by inking up the inside of the embossing folder with Soft Sky ink and ran it through the cuttlebug.
The little snowflake stamp is from a Rubber Stamp Tapestry set, stamped again with Stampin Up Soft Sky and then I added some Glamour dust (gotta have me sparkle)
The felt snowflakes are Stampin Up Snow Flurries (LOVE THEM!!)
The sentiment is from a Studio G set punched with the 3/4" Stampin Up circular punch.
The corner is punched with the Stampin Up photo corner punch.
The brad is from Papermania.


Thanks for looking,

  51. Waht a cool card!! I love it! Soft Sky is one of my favorite colors, too. I think that snowflake is the new "in color" Baja Breeze...a little darker than Soft Sky, but very nice too.
    Thanks for sharing.
