Make it Monday #231 - Motif Building

Hello friends.  Playing along with Betsy and Papertrey Ink for the Make it Monday challenge, where Betsy has a wonderful video on starting in the middle and building out with your stamps.  This was SO much fun, and after a few pencil marks to get me started, this whimsical card was created:


I started with the largest snowflake from Snowflake Sparkle, and then started lining up my penguins (from Warmest Wishes) with the points of the snowflake.  After dressing up the penguins in their hats and scarfs, I started adding more snowflakes in between the penguins.  My sentiment came from In The Meadow and I added a snowflake on either side to balance it out.  I used Aqua Mist, Tropical Teal, Pure Poppy, black, and silver inks, and then matted to a Tropical Teal card base.  An enamel dot, some rhinestones, and some black & white bakers twine finished off this fun card.  This came together really easily and I think I may have to make a few more!

Make sure you check out Betsy's great card and video, and then play along...you can find all the info right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)

  7. Maria, this is so cute! Your penguins look so cozy in their hats and scarves. Such a darling winter card. The rhinestones are great as they tie in with the "sparkle" sentiment.
