Fluffles Warm and Cozy Wishes

Hello, everyone!  I mentioned yesterday that I like to make at least two Christmas cards a month, and here is my second one, so I have achieved my goal for May! Yay! This card actually went together quickly because I found all the pieces in a box from a few years ago. I don't remember why this card was abandoned - maybe I was not happy with it, who knows. Since I wanted to make a card with non-traditional colours, this was perfect! All I had to do was assemble it.


I had the image already coloured and it looks like I watercoloured it with Tombow markers. It was heat-embossed in silver, and the sentiment is part of the stamp. I outlined the rectangle with a silver marker. The stamp is Fluffles Sweater from Stampendous. I did a Google search to see if it's still available, but I don't think so. It looks like one just sold on ebay last week for over $40, so I guess these Fluffles stamps are still in demand!  I am happy to have a small Fluffles collection even though I don't use them much any more.

The larger snowflake is from The Old Island Stamp Company, and the smaller one is from the dollar store. These were stamped in silver. I like the cool metal-ringed tag - haven't used these in ages. The silver ribbon is also from the dollar store.

I would like to support the following challenges: Aud Sentiments Cute Plus Sentiment 3/5; Come and Get It Tic Tac Toe (Design Paper, Sentiment, 2 or more Layers) 2/3; CRAFT Christmas but no Red or Green 2/5; Craft Stamper Take a Stamp 3/3; Craft Your Passion AG 1/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra May AG UE; Creative Corner AG 2/3; Creative Fingers AG 2/3; Creative Inspirations AG Option Sketch UE; DL.ART May AG UE 1/day; Crimbo Crackers Christmas AG UE; Fashionable Stamping Old Favourites (Fluffles and the snowflake) 3/3; HIMCR Any Holiday (Christmas) 1/3; Incy Wincy All or Nothing (Lots of Layers) 1/5; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Love to Scrap AG 3/3; Not Just Cards AG UE; One Crazy Stamper May AG 3/5; Penny's Paper-Crafty AG 3/3; Scrappy Moms Stamps Animals UE; Sister Act (Cards Only) AG UE; Sparkles Christmas Tag You're It (metal-ringed tag) 1/3; Squirrel's World Antiques Roadshow (every item on this card is well older than one year!) 3/3;Sweet Stampin' Christmas Cute 1/3; The 12 Months of Christmas Link-up Christmas with Optional Christmas Critters 2/3 FT; The Corrosive AG 2/3; The Outlawz Monday Greeting AG 1E; Tuesday Throwdown AG 1/3; Whimsy Stamps Anything but Square 2/3; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 3/5

I'm loving the image, what a cute card and love those hot pinks for christmas! I do the same thing, throw extra stuff in a box, including cards that never quite got finished. Sometimes you come back to it and can easily throw something new together using the pieces. Yay!

Those are some bright and fun non-traditional colors for sure. I love how this card came out with all the silver and then the colors. I downsized a lot (most? all?) of my Fluffles stamps over the years. I didn't use them much anymore but they still put a smile on my face.
