Baby it's cold outside!

First of all, a reminder that I have a giveaway going on until Christmas Eve.  Just leave a comment on the original post here for your chance to win a few stamps and some Tim Holtz embossing folders.

Now onto today's project.....Winter has finally arrived in my area and boy oh boy is it cold!!  So in keeping with the winter theme I thought I'd share a card I made using one of my Purple Onion Designs Noteblock stamps.  If you follow my blog the design might look a little familiar to you---well that's because the overall design is similar to this card that I posted.  With the size of the Noteblock stamps it is a bit challenging to come up with different layouts but switching up the papers does give the cards a different look.  The trims looked so good the first time I figured why change things LOL!

This is the first of four cards I created using the same sheet of patterned paper.  All of the cards were designed to be created in 10 minutes or less.  For this card I simply heat embossed the Noteblock image onto the patterned paper, trimmed it and mounted onto a scalloped rectangle.  I adhered it to a piece of the same paper and embellished with trims and a snowflake.  Stay tuned for the rest of the cards I made using the same papers.

Stamp:  Winter Noteblock from Purple Onion Designs
Ink:  Versamark (for heat embossing)
Papers:  Autumn Leaves, Georgia Pacific cardstock
Accessories:  Maya Road trim, fabric snowflake by Darice, twill ribbon, Spellbinders Nestabilities, wood button, embroidery floss, white embossing powder by Stampendous
