Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow ...

OMG What am I saying?
I must be delirious from viewing all those fabulous new dies, embossing folder, etc. available at our Dies R Us Store!  WOWZA ... the list of companies available to you just keeps growing & growing!  F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!

Hello Dies R Us Fans!
It's Darlene back with another card to share using some of the wonderful products available at our STORE.  Today I'm getting started on some winter/holiday creations.

The store items I have used on today's card are:

Other product used:
White cardstock, Silver Matte Metallic paper
Tim Holtz 'Tumbled Glass' Distress Ink, 
large sponge dauber, pop dots

This card was so much fun to create!  After sponging around this wonderful Memory Box snowflake stencil, I got a little adventurous with the 'shadowing' technique I used for the mittens.

I had actually die cut the mittens from a variety of papers for future cards and after laying the die cut onto my already sponged background, I decided the mittens needed some shading so I grabbed one of the die cut pieces of cardstock from the trash ... placed it in the center of my panel and placed post it notes around the edge so as not to get ink someplace I didn't want it.

This is what I got when I was finished sponging my 'hand cut stencil' ...
Now mind you, I could have stopped right there ... for this is beautiful in itself.
BUT ... that will have to wait for another time and another card because I had something else already in mind for today's creation!

I just LOVE this Memory Box Snowflake Corner and think it really gave my card corners wonderful dimension.  I must admit, I was really feeling creative today and I think that had to do with all the fun and fabulous dies that are available today and you won't find a better price or shipping rate than the one offered at our Dies R Us Store.
