I used Copic Markers to color my image. Papers are from Prima's North Country collection and a colorwash sheet from a My Mind's Eye collection which I embossed with a Crafts Too Snowflake Banner embossing folder and then sanded. Snowflakes are a mixture of Sizzix and Martha Stewart punches. Candi Dots are my only other embellishment.

I have something a bit different for you today for Prickley Pear...a Winter Décor post! We don't celebrate the holidays in the traditional manner, so I went more with Winter Décor...I find pops of red popping up this time of year!
My first photo is of a project I did for Prickley Pear a few years ago...I used the HH0082 Winter's Glow image which I did up with the glitter and acetate technique and then embellished with some paper embroidery. Hubby made up a frame for the card, it's very sparkly and the embroidery gives a homespun feel as well!
This is a peek at the decor by our front door. I went with a fun wire and twine snowflake which I embellished with a poinsettia, a few fun berries and some white snowball thingys. I change the decor on the frame out for each season...there is a snowman coming up for January!
I love this little wire and vine wrapped snowman, he's sitting outside our patio doors with his little shovel!
This is on top of a Pottery Barn inspired library cabinet hubby made for me...I found some white flowers that have lights in them and the red berries just seemed right with them. Can't say they are holiday decor though....they live there all year round! I did add the white artichoke though for the winter season...and I can't go wrong with old books....I love them!
And finally, here is one more project that lives out year round, but with the red berries it also reads winter. It is a stamped image that we painted....and no I can't paint, but it was in a workshop and I like it enough that it lives on my wall year round!
I hope you have enjoyed a peek into some of our winter decor!
I have a quick card for you today featuring Prickley Pear stamps and a fun Vellum Embossing Technique!
I stamped the FF0020 Eagle image in Stazon ink onto some ivory vellum and let it dry. Once dry, flip the image over on a foam pad. Rub and embossing stylus gently over the image *coloring* it. As you rub your stylus, the vellum will turn white as the fibers start to stretch. You are adding height to your image. When you have it the way you like it, then color the beak on the backside of the image with a Copic Marker. I then adhered the embossed vellum image to So Saffron cardstock with tiny glue dots hidden beneath my stamping.
Papers are from Teresa Collins' Everyday Moments Collection. C0007 Dreams Take Flight is stamped and popped up on foam over banner tails.
...was a jolly happy soul! The winter release from Prickley Pear rubber stamps is so adorable! GG0180 Frosty The Snowman is the perfect backdrop for so many winter cards! And what could be cuter than GG0184 Snowman With Lantern?! I colored the image up with Copic Markers: YG97, Y17, YR16, B97, B95, B93, B91, E44, RV10, BG000, R83, T2, R81, E43, T4, W7, W5, W3.
This image is the colored with Copic Markers and then is fussy cut and paired up with papers from Simple Stories collections. Check out the fun Antiqued Newsprint Candi embellishments.
This is another version featuring papers from another Simple Stories' collection.
Both my brother and I are thankful for all who have purchased his images this year...both through McMahon Five Designs as well as his line through The Stamp Shoppe in Schofield, WI!
