{The Cat's Pajamas TCP Tuesday} Snow Dudes

It's TCP Tuesday time again. Remember that even though it is a monthly challenge, you can enter as many times as you want. This month we are doing a "What's On Your Desk?" challenge. Specifically, make one card and then with the supplies and papers on your desk, make two more. My cards are all different but that is not a requirement.

I have another set today that I created for the TCP Tuesday challenge but actually previewed at last month's release Pajama Party at Splitcoaststampers. I used the Let the Flakes Fly set combining them with papers from last year's Doodlebug North Pole and this year's Home for the Holidays 6x6 pads since the colors are the same in both. Other common elements include snowflakes which are all left over from a previous project using the Snowflake Lace Paper CutUps, sequins and ribbon.

The first card uses the new Celebration Toppers as well as the guitar playing snowman displayed on a hand cut tag shape.

Card #2 uses the new Celebration Toppers again and features both snowmen on the main image panel. I drew in some lines on both snow dude's scarves with a Copics Multiliner pen to give them more of cabled sweater look and colored with Copic Markers.

The final card features a background embossed with the Dots CutUps. The decorative circles repeat the circles in the background one of which contains the sentiment. I drew in some lines on the snow dude's scarf with a Copics Multiliner pen to give it more cabled sweater look, colored the image with Copic Markers. After fussy cutting him out, I placed onto a hand cut tag shape.

  1. These are just brilliant. I love the bright splashes of color and the Dots CutUps to emboss.

  2. These are all so fabulous! Fun cards and designs.

  3. Nancy, these are all just adorable and I am really loving the blue and green color combo. I would have to say that that is the blue I have been looking for to make a holiday wreath. I made one out of the traditional red, green and white, but I sooooo want to make a pretty blue, silver, green one that I can't wait until payday to pick some up from . Anyway, I think you have done a terrific job on all of these cards and I really love that on the edge ;Celebrate' die. It really brings a little extra to your cards. :o) Hope you have a great Monday.
