Washi Meets...Let it Snow!

I was listening to "Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!" with my kids the other day...and I made a couple of cards...this card is one of them:


A simple card using chevron washi tape, a die-cut border heat embossed in turquoise and a stamped sentiment (hostess stamp set-CTMH) adhered with foam tape.
I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! #103 for this card:


And the colors are from Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Candy Cane.


Other challenges:
3. WAW #163: Anything Goes
4. CASology Week 126: Snow
5. Cards in Envy: Christmas Carols Challenge
6. SSS Mon Challenge: Anything Goes
7. SSS Wed Challenge: Winter Inspiration

Mixed-Media {Tuesday} Technique: Home Card and Homemade Glitter Glue

The card:


The technique...Homemade Glitter Glue!


I was crafting with my boys and I had some leftover liquid glue (Martha Stewart) in a cup. I didn't want to waste it, so I added some glitter...and some more fell into the cup (due to lack of attention and/or clumsiness), making it thicker than it was.
So, I spread it with a popsicle stick on a piece of paper, let it dry and tore it for my card.
I'll try it with other liquid glues and see the results...

This card was inspired by Unity {be inspired} Challenge color combo...


Supplies:
Tumbleweed Houses stamps (Unity Stamp Co.)
glitter
liquid glue (Martha Stewart)
Copic markers
washi tape (CTMH)
Shin Han Touch Twin marker (CTMH)
die-cut from my new toy...Brother ScanNCut

Challenges:
2.The Mixed Media Card Challenge #6: {Home}
3. MMMC #7: Tic-Tac-Toe (Tape-Glitter-Stamps...can you tell I have an obsession with this combo?)
4. WAW #162: Anything Goes
5. JUGS #271: Trend Week - Mixed Media
6. ATCAS #54: Family
7. SSS Mon Challenge: Anything Goes

Have a nice day!

I used silver embossing powder for the wreaths, stamped "joy", trimmed the panel, rounded the corners and adhered with 3-D foam tape on the card base.
