Gray Day Smiles with Blog Candy

Today is the 2nd Thursday of December. I can hardly believe it!! Time is just flying by. It could have something to do with the time of year it is I guess (grin) Anyway, Stamper's Dream has been issuing a challenge each month, and since the month of December can be filled with some pretty gray days, for today's Dreamy Challenge we're making Gray cards with a splash of color and a bit of bling. Here's my take on the challenge.

I stamped these Snow People (Artful Stamper) with Smokey Gray Versafine onto Neenah Solar White paper. I then colored them with my copics, and cut out the rectangular shape with my Nestabilities, along with the oval tag. I dipped my Stampin' Up white snowflake in my Essential Glue pad and coated it with Swimming Pool Sugar Coating glitter, and added a dew drop to the center. I added glitter to the scarves, mittens, and snow with my Quickie Glue Pen, and the Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter (Art Institute).

The little gems are Adornit gems on top of circles that I punched with a hole punch.
Each panel is mounted with dimensional tape, and the edges are ink distressed with Slate (Adirondack Dye Ink)

Check out what the rest of the Stamper's Dream Dream Team has come up with: Michelle, Cammie, Charmaine, Cindy, Denise, Kim, Laurie.

Michelle is having a Blog Candy give away too, so you'll want to check out her blog. All you have to do to be entered, is make a card with tones of gray, and add a splash of color and a bit of bling. Link that to the comment section of Michelle's Stamper's Dream blog, and you'll be entered. If you're posting your card on SCS, please use the keyword SDDC3. We'd love to see all of your creative ideas!! Here's what you can win....


Also....while you're thinking about what to get for your stamping friends and relatives, think about getting them GIFT CERTIFICATES from Stamper's Dream. Sometimes it's hard to know what supplies or images they already have, and what stamper doesn't love shopping for supplies!?!?!
