Winter Stream with a cat

I'm glad that my darling Chow Chow won't understand anything about the cards. Otherwise he would think I'm cruel to him.  A cat can enjoy this wonderful winter scene and he have to tolerate the hot summer sun. He just keeps looking me with the face saying: "Please, make the sun go away!" I'm willing to buy as many A/C as he wants but sun is good :)
Sparkle N Sprinkle released a fabulous winter stamp for everyone who love winter - Winter Stream Stamp Set #601. It's gorgeous! I used it with another new stamp set named Feline Humor Stamp Set #631.

Images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with alcohol base markers. Icicles are re-colored with Versamarker Pen and heat embossed with Sparkle EP. Clear EP makes them shine like a real things and a bit of the glitter gives some extra sparkle.

The snow hills are all re-colored with Sakura Glue pen and I added Crystal Ice Glitter on top. Snow caps on the trees and on the rocks are covered with Dimensional Glue  and also covered with Crystal Ice Glitter. I love the dimension on it. I added some more glue with Sakura Glue Pen to the water and covered it with
Waterfall Glitter.

This beautiful cat is covered with Sakura Glue Pen and  Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft. He is popped up with a foam tape. Sentiment is stamped with Versamark Ink to the Vellum and it's heat embossed with Black Detail EP. 

The background of this card is heat embossed with most fabulous EP for winter projects -  Blue Silver EP. It's so easy to make stunning backgrounds with it - just ink the CS with Versamark ink, add EP and heat emboss.
The snowflake border is cut from the Sticker Paper and covered with Twinkling Clouds SS. 

You can find full directions for this card in the SNS Gallery.

  25. Eret, I'm not sure what is happening on your blog, but I've tried leaving comments 3 times on separate days, and they keep disappearing! WAH! Hopefully the one previous to this was accepted. Just wanted you to know, that I am trying! LOL hugs, de

  26. Well, I see that my last comment has been accepted, so let me try again -- Hi Eret (waving from Florida). Beautiful kitty card - and even if your kitty is a little strange, and does not like the sun, I think he is darling LOL - your card design is amazing, with the subtle use of color, and a perfect backdrop for all the sparkle and texture, including your delightful snow flakes! I hope all is going well for you! xo
