What a Week

Good morning everyone. This has been a week of really great highs and very low lows. First our Cat (Melvin) that we have had for 11 years has dispersed we don’t know what has happened to her I so wish she would come home.
Then I got some really good news my stamps arrived from DRS Designs and I spent Tuesday stamping and getting my cards ready, I can’t wait to start sharing them.
Then this morning another disappointment I had applied for the Heartfelt Creations design team and I did get it, Oh well there will be other opportunities. This is one of the cards I made for the heartfelt design team, thought that I would share with you now.
It’s a easel card and I use the stamp Snowy Swirl, and Snowflake Medallion, and a Encore Stamp Pad in Silver.

Heartfelt Creations Snowy Swirl
Heartfelt Creations Snowflake Medallions pre cut set
Heartfelt Creations Snowy Swirl and Seasons Greetings
Heartfelt Creations Holly Leaves and Ornament Die
Encore stamp pad: Silver
Brilliance stamp pad: Graphite black
Martha Stewart blue sapphire glitter
White card stock, blue card stock, blue patterned paper
Recollections Adhesive Rhinestones
Double sided tape
Foam dots
Hole punch (1/8 in)
Hole punch (½ in)
White string
Stamp small Snowflake Medallions 6 times on white card in silver ink. Cut out with the Heartfelt Creations Holly Leaves and Ornament Die. Add small dots of glue to stamped medallions. Add glitter and set aside to dry. Using the ½ in punch, punch a circle from white paper. Cover in glue and then glitter. Set aside to dry. Cut a piece of white card stock to 4 ¼ x 4 ¼. Cut another piece to 4 ¼ x 8 ½. Score at 4 ¼ and 6 ¼. Fold the 4 ¼ inch score in a mountain fold and the 6 ¼ inch score in a valley fold. Attach the 4 ¼ x 4 ¼ square to the small flap. Cut a piece of blue card stock to 4 1/8 x 4 1/8. Stamp Snowy Swirl in Silver ink on the blue card. It is okay if the stamp goes over the edge of the cardstock. Attach the blue square to the white square. To make the rosette: Cut a 1 x 12 inch strip from the blue patterned paper. Score every ¼ inch. Fan fold. Using the 1/8 inch hole punch, punch holes in the top of each pair of folds. Take care that all of the holes are the same distance from the top edge of the paper. (If you own a Crocodile punch, you can punch through more layers at a time.) Thread a string through the holes. Tie tightly. Tape ends of the paper together to form ring. Using even spacing, attach the tip of each glittered medallion on a foam dot to form a snowflake. Glue the glittered circle in the center of the snowflake. Attach the snowflake with foam dots to the rosette. Attach the rosette in the upper left corner of the blue card with a foam dot. Attach 3 rhinestones in the opposite corner. Cut a piece of blue card stock to 4 1/8 x 1 7/8. Cut a piece of white card stock to 4 x 1 ¾. Stamp the Snowy Swirl in silver ink on the white card. Stamp the sentiment in black ink over the top of the silver. Attach the white card to the blue. Add three rhinestones to the left edge of the white piece. Attach to the bottom of card.
