Wish-granting fairy and a less transparent snowman

What would you wish for if you would meet this sweet fairy? 

This cute stamp as well as the label die belong to my friend Dora.  She brought them a long time ago for us to play with. I stamped, colored,  and cut out the panel but didn't finish it that Thursday night. So it sat on my desk. Then I discovered that a panel that was left over from a play with Gelatos had the same colors as her wings. Eventually this card came together. Too bad that you can't see well all the sparkle from the Stickles on the wings, stars, and flowers in her hair!

Stamps: Penny Black (fairy), Hero Arts (starry background), Inkadinkado? (sentiment)
Die: Spellbinders Label twenty-two
Other: Fancy corner scissors (Fiskars)

Remember that transparent looking snowman from my last post? I couldn't rest until I dabbed him with some pearlescent white chalk. I find he looks better now. What do you think?

I will take a couple of weeks off from blogging and commenting to enjoy the holidays with my family.

Have a wonderful the holiday season!

Two Wintery Cards

Just popping in quickly to show you two more wintery cards that I made. They are both 5x7.

White embossed the trees, matted the panel with matte silver cardstock. Popped up the sentiment. Added stickles to the trees, snowflakes, and around the sentiment panel.

Stamps: Penny Black (trees), Stampin' Up (sentiment)

Added just a pinch of stickles...

White embossed the snowman on kraft. Colored with sharpies. Added a red layer, the sentiment, and a glittery snowflake. Seeing it on screen reminds me that I wanted to color the snowman with a bit of white chalk or something. Shucks!

Stamps: snowman unmounted and unknown, Savy stamps (sentiment)
Die: MFT (snow flake)

Two big glittery snowflakes

My apologies for the sparse posting here at the moment! I am so behind with everything this year and am now officially in panic! As I am sure you are all busy as well I will keep this short but I wanted to share two glittery snowflakes cards I made.

and a close up to see the glittery card stock better (although the gray weather didn't make the glitter sparkle very much)

And since I didn't want to waste the negative die cut I made this card

Stamps: Stampin' Up (both sentiments)
Die: Hero Arts (snowflake)
Other: Glitter paper (Recollection), snowflake paper from my stash

Lots of snowflake themed challenges in blogland at the moment. As always click on the links to find out details or browse for inspiration:

Sadly, Virginia's View is taking a brake after this one. Since Virginia did everything by herself it is understandable that she is in need of of a brake! I hope she will be back because she always had cool themes!
