 You have all week to make your choice 
and I will announce the winner
next Sunday.

Today I share this card with you with the snowman stamp
and a sentiment from  from Mike's word & phrases stamp set.

Are you wondering how I did the blue/brown background?
Very simple: First I stamped the snowman ornament in
versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder.
Then  I used a few blue bistre grains on my craft
sheet,added a few drops of water and used the pannel
direct to the craft sheet to get the color on the paper.
Dried it with  my heatgun and that is all. This way
you can make afew cardsin a short amount of time.

On top I made a hole to add a piece of turquoise ribbon.

Behind the ornament pannel I used a piece of white paper,
that i ebossed with a embossing folder that looks like this:
It gives an extra touch to the card. Papers are from
Club Scraps November Lakes pizza box. Yummy colors!

Thanks for looking and don't forget to

you can always order them here  in  the webshop

I love your snowman card!! It's just adorable. As far as my favorite stamp it's a toss up between the snowman and the reindeer love them both!!

Barbara Ingerson said...

great card, Hetty - as usual! love Mike's new stamps, but my fav is the circle snowman. Barb I

CarlavdM said...

Wat een mooie kaart is dit geworden met die blauwe bistre.
Een Sneeuwpop/Sneeuwman of -vrouw zijn o.a. mijn favoriete stempels in de winter, dus ik ga voor de Kerstbal met de sneeuwpop erin ;o)

Dank je wel voor je blogcandy Hetty..super!!!

CarlavdM said...

Vergat te zeggen dat ze eigenlijk alle vier errug leuk zijn!!!

Gerrina said...

Wow, dat zijn weer mooie nieuwe stempels! Vind het moeilijk te zeggen welke ik het mooist vind, de duif of de sneeuwman, maar denk toch de sneeuwman..
Mooi hoe goed die uitkomt op de bisterachtergrond! Blijft mijn lievelings combo; blauw en bruin! Fijne zondag verder, Gerrina

April Puzzuoli said...

I love the nontraditional colors you picked for your snowman card. My favorite is the Dove. But it is tough to pick just one!

Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Confettiny said...

Mij bevallen het rendier en de duif het meest, waarbij het rendier mijn absolute favoriet is!
groetjes, Trix

Ina Good said...

gorgeous card love the snowman as my favorite! I miss snow!

Dottie said...

No doubt the Snowman is my favorite even though all of Mike's stamps are
wonderful and artsy. Hetty, your card is just lovely. Happy Holiday to you. Dottie

Jan Castle said...

Wonderful card Hetty....love that Bister look!!!! I like the deer ornament as my first choice, but they are all delightful.
Hugs,
Jan

CraftyJo said...

Great card Hetty, lucky you having these fab stamps to play with :) I like them all but my favourite would be the reindeer one, I like that shape of bauble.

Laura said...

Your card is a beauty, Hetty! The ornament appears as if it's dimensional and set on top of the bister layer! Reminds me of a clear glass ornament! Love how you "hung" it with the ribbon! Smart thinking!!! Looks terrific! ANd your bister layer is just gorgeous! Great color and love the way the bister "moved" on the paper to create a lovely design! I like how you added an embossed layer beneath the bister too! The paper ribbon is so pretty too!

As for my favorite, my first thought was the teardrop shaped one shown at the end, with the peace dove. But I love what you did with your snowman one...so I'm changing my mind to the snowman ornament!!! Thanks for sharing your techniques! Hugs, Laura

Deborah Bertolin said...

Love the look of the snowman ornament on your card Hetty! My favorite ornament, however, is the peace ornament because of its simple design.

Rosie Guiher said...

Very pretty card Hetty! Wow i love all his new stamps but i think i like the last one, it has a sweet looking bird in it, and reminds me of a dove.

Interesting backgrounds - really like the way you've made these cards. Although I like all Michael's Christmas designs my favourite, especially the way you've used it, is the Dove ornament.

What a great group of cards. I really love your distressed blue background. It's very intriguing. My favourite is the snowman stamp. I love them all, but that one has to be my favourite.

Gonny van der Ruijt said...

De alleralleraller mooiste? Het rendier. Ik zou hem graag in het echt ontmoeten, en tot die tijd er alleen van dromen. Hoe mooi zou het zijn als die stempel in mijn brievenbus zou liggen? Lieve groet, Gonny

Tineke said...

Leuk, die bister achtergrond! Doet een beetje aan marmer denken. Ga ik vast eens proberen!

Annemieke said...

Wat een prachtige kaarten weer Hetty, met weer originele stempels! Ik vind ze alle 4 mooi, maar mijn favoriet is toch wel die met de duif, daar gaat zoveel rust vanuit...

Jeannette v.D. said...

Hi Hetty, love your cards.
Without a douwt I love the rond one with the showman the best ! Would. Love to win one. :)

Fenny said...

Lieve Hetty,

Echt weer Hetty om dit met ons te delen..! En mijn favoriet is de ovale kerstbal, die met het duifje in het midden. Duifje staat voor vrede en ja zeker zou dat heel, heel mooi zijn. Vrede op de wereld is toch zeker een rijkdom

liefs van fenny
