Sensational Sunday Inspirations Blog Hop

Hi Stampers!

We are excited to be back with our Inspiration Blog this week starting with our Sensational Sunday Blog Hop! The Design Team ladies have created some stunning inspiration for you this week and we will be back to posting regularly on this blog :) YAY!

Here is my project for you today...

I used the super adorable Polar Bear image from the Some Odd Girl stamp set Winter Friends and it is definitely one of my favorites! I first stamped him using Memento London Fog ink and then colored him using copics in the warm gray colors - W0, W1, W3. My designer paper is also new and from the Doodlebug Frosty Friends collection. My sentiment is stamped in the London Fog as well on shimmer white cardstock and is from the My Favorite Things stamp set Stitched Stockings.

Here is a look at the inside which I decorated as well. I have found that if I don't do the inside at the same time....I never get the inside done - LOL!

I used the same layout as the outside of my card and added just a pop of color with the my Spellbinders Snowflakes cut from glitter paper. If you look at the bottom of the Bazzil Bling Gray paper you will see some sparkly icicles! I cut these using my C.C. Designs Icicle Border die in vellum and then I went over the vellum with Stardust Stickles.  Which will all be in the store soon :)

Here is a closer look at the icicles - If you look on the front of the card I added them there too. 

Here is a closer look at my Arctic Night Sky. I sponged this using Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Evergreen Bough, Iced Spruce, Shaded Lilac and Broken China. To make my stars I used some of my Shimmer Pebbles chalk and scraped some of the white and placed it on my craft mat. I added a little water using a paint brush and then flicked it onto my paper. It gets more intense as it dries and the shimmer chalk gives it some sparkly bling :) The little faint snowflakes I stamped in the Broken China ink using the two smaller sized ones from the Lawn Fawn set Critters in The Snow. The trees are cut using the My Favorite Things Campy Tree Line Dienamics and shimmer white paper. 

Here is a closer look at that sweet little polar bear image....don't you love him ?!?!

For my layout I used the Papertake Weekly Sketch #74.
