Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

Happy Monday Everyone!!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! We start school full time this morning so we are back to our early AM routine! (ugh)

This week Vicki is the host for our challenge. She wants us all to use the spotlight technique for our projects! Highlight part of your image by stamping it twice and layering it! Here's a great Tutorial to show you how!

For my card I used this adorable Hero Arts snowman image to try out my technique. I think he worked pretty well!! I used yummy K & Co. paper and an Inkadinkado stamp for the sentiment. I colored my image with copics and used Martha Stewart chunky glitter for my snow. I used the Sketch Saturday sketch #63 for my layout. I tried to keep it simple so that my image would really shine. I'm used to a lot of embellies, so I feel strange not adding a bunch of stuff to my card!!!

This was a fun challenge and I hope you like my card. Be sure to visit the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see what the other challenge divas have created. I also have them listed on my sidebar. It's time to get started on those cards!! We'd love for you to play along, just leave a comment and a link to your creation on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog or if you upload to SCS or PCP, use the keyword CSAYL. Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Be sure to come by tomorrow to see what I have to show you.

Hey Cathy! Oh, your card is such a cutie! I love that snowman and the spotlight you created! Such a fun technique, huh? Beautiful choice of colors too. . they're pretty! Love the glitter that you added. .the sparkles really stand out beautifully!

Sorry, I haven't been around much.. .life has gotten busy since I've been driving my daughter to school. It has really been taking up a huge chunck of my day. I'm hoping to establish a normal routine. . .I'm still trying to figure it out!

Hope you have a wonderful Monday!
