In the Meadow with Merry Mondays #95
I have to thank Marcia for the idea for my card this week. She had a birthday and as is our tradition, we go to our favorite restaurant, Arnie's, and we both have French Dip with provolone and fries. My hubby just finds this so comical to think we both love the same restaurant and the same sandwich...why not, we are best friends after all! She was the one who introduced me to stamping too! Anyway, to get back to my card idea. Marcia loves PTI's stamps and she has two certain sets of dies, but not the actual stamp sets that went with them, so that was my present to her this year. I think her favorite Christmas stamp set from PIT is "In the Meadow" which was one of the stamp sets I bought her. It dawned on me, as she was gushing over the set, that I could use the horse and carriage out of that stamp set for this week's MM challenge (ding, ding, ding). I made a Christmas card last year with the horse and carriage, but did change it up some for this challenge.
To make this simple, all the stamps used on this card are from PTI's "In the Meadow" Stamp Set. I used SU's" Black" card stock as my base and mounted SU's "Crumb Cake" card stock. I stamped the Pine tree in SU's "Pear Pizzazz" and off stamped some trees in the background, too. I then used the snowflake stamp with SU's "White Craft" ink all over the card. I cut out the horse and carriage from PTI's "In the Meadow" die set with SU's "Black" card stock and also stamped the snowflakes on it too. I pop dotted the horse and carriage and added a little of Gina K's "White" card stock as snow. I stamped "Dashing through the Snow" in Memento's Tuxedo Black. I finished off the card by using Ranger Perfect Pearls "Perfect Pearl" with some water and using a paint brush splatter some over the entire card and painted it on the white card stock to make the snow sparkle.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday! We are off to celebrate our January and February birthdays with my family. Thank you for stopping by.
