Winter's Chalkboard

Happy Friday all!  I hope your day has begun being a good one.  My hubby’s on his way home from work today so I’m excited.  Let’s get started for today…

If you weren’t aware, Power Poppy revealed FIVE brand new holiday themed stamp sets in the last week, a collection called "Happiest Holiday 2016" and the Bloom Brigaders have been hard at work creating and sharing.  So today I thought I’d combine a few new sets and share them with you today.

My card today wasn’t quite what I had in my mind when I first began creating but it’s slowly grown on me.  What do you think…
I layered a few white embossed sprays on vellum from the “Glistening Paperwhites” stamp set over laid by some chalkboard style inking in the back ground.  I used the cute little bough & jingle bell and mistletoe images from the “Fully Stocked” collection plus a few small snowflakes from the “Action Santa” stamp set too!

I added some Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to all the berries in the spray…

I hope I’ve inspired you today.  I know the rest of the Bloom Brigade has some fabulous inspiration for you too!  Check them out…

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a creative weekend.

Your Vellum Paperwhites are glorious! Loving the frosty look and feel of your entire card! It's a beauty!

SO Beautiful! Using the vellum for the flowers is really striking against the blues and black ;)

Oh, Ally, this is gorgeous and is striking! I love the layered paperwhites on the vellum with the Nuvo drops (have them on my wishlist now that they are back in stock). And what a gorgeous blackboard card! I've seen a lot, but this is so striking with Marcy's artwork on it!! Makes all the difference! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
