Hello my peeps! What’s going on by you? I had a very nice day in Connecticut yesterday with my friends Michael and Sue. We went up to the garage sale at Papercraft Clubhouse in Westbrook. So many stamps, paper and accessories to dig though and we all found some treasures. There was even a table with all Stampin’ Up! sets and accessories. We spent quite a while there and even got to speak to the owner Tracie who was very sweet. I took a picture of this cool purple house which turned out to be another stamp store called Beautiful Impressions Too.
On the way home we stopped at Hobby Lobby and JoAnn’s. I got some more goodies (not that I needed any more! LOL) and so did everyone else! All in all a very fun day indeed!
Today I have a card that was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest. The card begins with a base of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Letterpress Winter Photopolymer Stamp Set in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. For my panel I stamped the tree branch from the “Vintage” Take Care Stamp Set in Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand randomly on a piece of Naturals White Card Stock. My falling snow is created using a stencil from Simon Says Stamp and some embossing paste. I mounted the panel to a piece of Brushed Silver Metallic Card Stock (at the suggestion of Michael) and adhered it to the card with SNAIL. The two snowflakes are from the Snowflake Card Thinlit and are cut out from Silver Glimmer Paper and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the simplicity of the card and the subtle falling snow created with the embossing paste. I hope that enjoyed my wintry Holiday card for today. Thank you for sharing in my days and I hope that you all have a great Sunday! 🙂

Thank you Michael! And thanks so much for the input! It made all the difference! 🙂
love the different way you used Take Care! Very nice card!

Hello Justin, This is a lovely card! I love cherry cobbler and the embossing paste loos very cool and adds so much dimension to your card. The silver glimmer paper is the perfect addition! Have a great Sunday!
Thanks very much! I love the embossing paste with that stencil, really looks like snow! I had a wonderful Sunday, hope that you did too! 🙂
Hi Justin- I love this card. It just looks like a peaceful snowy day in New England. I am going to have to get some of this embossing paste- it looks fun.
Having grown up in New England I remember all the wonderful little towns and cute houses like the one in your photo. What a great way to spend the day.
Thanks for another great start to my day!
Thank you! Yes, it does have a peaceful forest fee to it! Definitely New England area! I love the embossing paste!
I love a quaint little town, there is just something so peaceful and sweet about it! It was a wonderful day! Hope that yours was great too! 🙂
It is sad to see that Beautiful Impressions Too is for sale.
Yes, but the store is staying I believe Karin! 🙂
What a visual delight to feast my eyes on Justin. The retired SU tree trunks are used perfectly in this stunning card. Embossing paste… I gotta try some. It really does look like snow. Reminds me of a serene and lovely snowy birch tree scene in Alaska.
Thanks very much Loralee! So happy that you like the card! I love embossing paste, especially with that stencil! You definitely have to try it! 🙂
Justin, this is an elegant and beautiful card. I love the falling snow and it adds so much to your card. I love finding inspiration on pinterest.
Thank you! Pinterest is such a great place to fuel your creativity! Glad you like the card! Hope you had a nice weekend! 🙂
Justin, I LOVE this card. All the elements blend so beautifully together. It is such a peaceful card. You are truly talented. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks very much! The card makes me happy when I look at it! Hope you had a nice day! 🙂
Clean simple elegance! I love loking at snow on bare trees, its so beautiful. Now do you care to hear my opinion of driving in it, LOL. Gorgeous pictures, Fall is beautiful in the East
Thank you Linda! I will admit that I like seeing the snow falling in a wooded area, but I’m good with seeing it on TV! LOL! The fall colors are definitely something not to miss! Nature is just being creative! 🙂
Hi Justin! I have just subscribed to your blog, found it a couple of weeks ago, and check it nearly every day 😉 You make the most amazing professional looking cards! We travelled to the USA last year, and LOVED it! The photo of the Connecticut house made me want to return so much, what a beautiful place it is – I would happily live there. Thanks for sharing your adventures! Cheers, Kelly, South Australia 🙂
Welcome! I’m happy to have you along and glad that you are enjoying my work. Yes, the USA is a fun diverse country with lots to see. I’m glad that you enjoyed your time here and hope that you do get the chance to come back. I look forward to sharing more adventures with you! Have a great evening Kelly! 🙂
