Oh Mittens!

Good evening!
Ooooh it's snowing here! Normally I would be very excited by that, but it may put paid to plans I had this weekend :( Oh well, we shall see...

For now, here is a card using some of my newest goodies! I ummmed and ahhhed over getting this stamp and punch set, but knowing that it won't be available after January, I decided to just get it!


I'm sure you've seen it around, but I'm super glad I got it, even if I am a bit late lol!


Can you see the fab embossing? That is using the brand new Needlepoint Embossing folder from the new Spring/Summer Catalogue, out on February 1st! I used both folders, one on my DP, one on my sentiment.

This was again stamped using my Stampin' Write Markers to colour the stamp before stamping...my fave technique! I love the colours I've used too...unusual for Christmas. My colours were inspired by the challenge at Colour Throwdown this week.


Supplies used on this card
Cardstock - Whisper White
Designer Paper - Comfort Cafe
Markers - Melon Mambo, Pretty In Pink, Pumpkin Pie
Stamps - Make A Mitten, Petite Pairs
Embossing Folders - Needlepoint Border
Punch - Mitten Builder
Other - Whisper White Baker's Twine
