Snow Cute

Hello Everyone,

Happy New Year. This is Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room. It is my turn for my monthly design.

I decided to make these adorable snow faces. They are made from a paper towel roll. I ran it through my cuttlebug to flatten it, then I cut three out of it.
















Aren't they snow cute? :) I used sticky tape on the bottom to seal it so I could either use them for a decoration or put wrapped candy in them to give away.

















So they went from this


















I painted them white with acrylic paint.


















I stamped that cute face with the bigger Peachy Keen Stamp - PKK-04, Open Eyes with Simple Smile. Don't you just love those faces.

I cut a piece of red snowflake cardstock and trimmed them to fit and adhered them on top and added a jute bow. I punched holes and added black wire. On the bottom, I added tulle and a gold bell with twine. If you notice, the tulle and twine match the nose. Who says snowmen/snowwomen have to have orange noses. LOL

So that is my project for this month. As always, Thank You for stopping by.

Hugs, Lisa

A better picture of the skate

I wanted to post a better picture of the skate. After looking at it several times, I wanted to really show the eyelets, so I just moved the bow. :)

Throwback Thursday Challenge

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I hope this New Year brings much Health and Happiness to us all.

Emma is back in the groove after her busy 12 days of Christmas. I'm so glad I had the time to participate in this challenge. This challenge is to create anything with a Sports Theme.

Here is my card. I am so proud of it.




















My son said it looked like a stilletto on a blade. LOL Well, it kind of does. :) I'll have to think of that when I need a high heel shoe.

I got the ice skate from the Christmas cartridge. I cut it at 5". I used my crop a dile and put holes and silver eyelets and laced it up with that beautiful rose colored curly ribbon from Sheila at She's a Sassy Lady :) I cut out the skate again with a patterned paper just for the top. The base of the card started out with a speckled white paper from Paper Trey Ink. I used the Iced Spruce Distress Ink from Tim Holtz and sponged it all over the front.

I used Silver stickles on the blade. I doodled with a fine tip black marker on the skate and the base of the card. I then used dimensionals to pop up the skate. The cute snowflakes and letters are from My Creative Times stamp set Anyday Bingo and Crossword.

I think it came out so cute.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you again real soon. Have a wonderful weekend.
