Gliding by twice


I received my new "Gliding by" stamp from Paper Pretties the other day. I belong to the Stamp of the Month club and I get a brand new lovely Sophia every month. I had a hard time deciding what color to make her. She looks good in just about any color but I wanted to use this new blue snowflake paper that I got on sale at Michaels so for my first card I went with a blue and grey Sophia. I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black on my new delicious paper from PTI. It is by far the best paper I have bought. LOVE IT!! Then I cut Sophia out with my circle nesties and with my scalloped circle cut out a piece of vellum. My border punch is a snowflake punch from fiskars. My ribbon is from Michaels and the little beads are so irridescent so I decided to add them for a little flare.

My second "Gliding By" was made in pink and burgandy and I used my Parisian Summer dsp from SU. I embossed my pink pirouette paper with my snowflakes folder and sponged some Bravo Burgandy on it for some added color. I used my SU pink pirouette ribbon, a heidi swapp ghost flower and a cute little pink button from stash.

It is absolutely bitter cold here on Long Island but thank goodness it is supposed to warm up alittle in the next few days. I hate when my nose is cold!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and let me know which color Sophia you like best.

Ohhh, I love these. And actually I think the blue one is my favorite despite my love of pink. It just looks so crisp and cool and pretty! But the other one is awesome too.
I won't tell you that it got above 70 here today and I had to put on shorts as I was too hot.
