Celebrating the Holidays with IO Stamps!

 I'm excited to be sharing this pretty image with you today for our Celebrating the Holidays over at Impression Obsession. I used several images on my creation, including TWO cover a card Background Stamps-Cover a Card Nordic Christmas  (on the Tan heart) and Ornate Snowflakes. (more subtle, om the blue background). The main image is called Snow Couple with Birds. The sentiment is from the The Miracle of Christmas Clear set . I Cut the heart freehand.....YEP, Freehand! In these days of all the delicious Die cuts out there, I didn't have a Heart in the right size........I could have used my Cricut, but it was holding up my laptop as I was assembling the card and watching a lecture, so I was to lazy to disassemble everything! I did use the IO Pine Branch Die  though....It's one of my faves as of late!

I coloured my image with a mix of Touch Markers and Copic and added lots of Glitter, Gel Pen, Sparkly Fluff and Flower Soft for texture.........GOSH I LOVE LOVE LOVE making winter cards!

Be sure to head on over to the IO Blog to see who's sharing projects today and to find out how you can win some Gorgeous RUBBER!!!

Happy Stamping!
