Friends Fur-ever with some bling bling by Stampin Up and me

Happy Sunday every one! I hope you had some rest this day. You deserve it!

Wow, that was new... I just had to scare away a woodpecker that was knocking his beak into our house.. I have to say.. In Holland I have maybe seen five times a woodpecker in my life.. and if I would see it, I would be so excited! Now here in Canada I have to 'hush' them away..

This is maybe a fun fact about those cute little birds. Did you know that when a woodpecker pecks into the wood, his tongue that is inside his head cuddles right over his brain to protect it from being damaged while pecking.. How cool is that?... We have a pretty creative Creator in this world! Right.. Nah.. there it is again..

Anyhoo. Do you remember the Ski Slope Designer Series Paper from Stampin Up? I was looking at it this morning while I was cleaning up my crafting desk and one of the snow flakes in there, looked very familiar. Then I looked at my new die with all the snowflakes from the Decorative Strip from Stampin Up and there it was.. If you look closely at my card you see the similarities. Love when that happens.

I created this card for the Pals Paper Pals Art Challenge #65. They asked for some bling. Now I happen to be liking some bling in my cards.. So here is what I came up with.

I used the Friends Fur-ever stampset from Stampin Up. And yes I used the Baja Breeze card stock .. again.. Imatched it together with my last piece of Chocolate Chip card stock.. Now where did all that paper go.. ? humm.. Anyway..
I also used the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impression Embossing Folder from Stampin Up and rolled it through the Big Shot. Doesn't it match well with the Ski Slope DSP? I added some sticky pearls and one Filigree Designer brad from Stampin Up in the middle of the snowflake (these brads are $7.95 +tax + shipping for 16 of them + the matching 3/16 brads) and foila!
Ready to go!

Hugs, Pauline

  4. Pauline,
    Glad to have you as a follower on my blog (us fellow Canadian's have to stick together), as I will follow your blog too. I was born in Toronto, but have spent most of my life in the USA. Thanks for your nice comments about my card. I really love your puppy dog card, I haven't purchased this set YET, but I keep threatening to do so (probably next order from my daughter(http://nanceleedy.blogspot.com) who is a SU demonstrator also). I look forward to seeing other great cards on your blog. Happy blogging!

  5. Awwww, this is just too cute! I love the colours and the cuteness and everything about it!

  6. Hi pauline, the snowflakes were made with aluminium flashing. the first couple cut fine but after that it was a bit of a mission getting all the little bits out! LOL Hugs,

  7. Love it! Great colors and I love the pups on a winter card. You can't go wrong with the pearl accents, either! Good luck with your feathered friend...we have a cardinal that has been making a mess of our vehicles because he likes to look at himself in our car mirrors all day long. Crazy birds! :)


Thanks so much for leaving your comment. Enjoy the rest of your day! Take care, Pauline
