New Rubber-I'm in the Pink

It was just like Christmas when I arrived home from work yesterday, to find that my Pink Cat Studio Stamps had arrived. Holy moses! Seems like I had just ordered them yesterday!!! I was very impressed with the quick shipping.

Getting new rubber makes me positively Giddy! and I just couldn't wait to break into my stamps. The images came on a sheet of soft rubber, which cut very nicely I must add!

Heading to my computer to see what the daily challenge was, I found this image perfect for the gift card holder challenge. I had just bought this delicious October Afternoon Good Cheer Paper on the weekend and was itching to bust into it!

To see instructions or get the link for a Video Tutorial by Jen McGuire over at Hero Arts, follow this LINK

To create this card, I followed the basic Instructions on the Tutorial. Then I stamped my image onto Neenah paper and coloured it with Copic Markers. Did I mention I LOVE to colour??? Because I love having some dimension in my creations, I used flocking powder on her cuffs and muffs.............hehe.............poet this morning! and some liquid applique to create a blanket of snow. Then I figured that they would look adorable in the middle of a gentle snowfall, so off to work with the white gel pel. Then a little silver for her buttons and some accents on Frosty.
Ribbon, a Heidi Swapp clear Snowflake, Curly Punchout and a Button finish it all off quite nicely I think!!! The sentiment on the inside of the card is also from the Lily and Tweet set. I addeda Felt Flurry Snowflake from SU just to give a little extra oomph!!!!!

Thanks so much to Shirley over at Card Art, Etc.
