PDCC 105

Hello again to all my lovely crafty friends! LOL I love to watch Joy playing with her blanket, which she is doing right now.  It is in her crate but she likes to pull it out and drag it around. She is SO full of energy this time of day, and that is after a good long walk!  She is really growing fast now…. Just 6 weeks ago she was 4 pounds and now she is 10 pounds.  She is quickly becoming my crafting buddy.

Today, I have a card that was inspired by the Play Date Café Challenge PDCC 105 with this weeks colors being Kraft/Taupe...Flesh...Cadet Blue. First for my card:


and now their inspiration photo:

Aren’t those yummy colors?  I just love that combination and how it looks on my card.  The papers are ATD Jack Frost and MME Lost & Found Christmas.  The cute snowman is fussy cut from the Jack Frost paper. 


The sentiment is on a piece of flesh colored cardstock that is cut using the Spellbinders Labels Four.  I used Rubber Stamp Tapestry’s Small Oval Positioning Template  with their Winter Night Sky Set and metallic inks to decorate the label and then stamped it with RST’s Merry Christmas Peg Stamp – Mini.  The glossy finish comes from an embossed finish I applied to the label.

Complete instructions are listed below, so if you want all the details, please scroll down.

I hope you like my card and will leave comments before you leave! Thanks for stopping by….





  • MME Lost & Found Christmas 5 x 7”
  • ATD Jack Frost 4 x 6 and the snowman
  • Flesh cardstock for Spellbinders


  • Atlantic
  • Polar Blue
  • Umber
  • Other Inks: Pigment
    • Blue Ice
    • Pewter
    • Copper
    • Silver Starlight



  • Crinkle Ribbon – Blue
  • “Rhinestones” – Light blue
  • Bakers doily


  1. Cut all paper
  2. Fussy cut the snowman from the Jack Frost paper.
  3. Use Big Shot and Spellbinders Labels Four on flesh colored card stock
  4. Use Oval Positioning Template on die cut.  I like to use a Q-Tip to outline the template shape in the color ink I am going to use as the background (in this case Polar Blue).  I then use a makeup sponge to lightly blend the same color from the outside of the template to the edge, leaving the oval shape in the base cardstock color.
  5. Next use Atlantic around the edge of the die cut to give it a darker outline.
  6. Stamp the die cut with the Winter Night Sky stamp set. Go ahead and stamp a few in the center oval too. I used the metallic pigment inks for this. If you want them to show up more use Versacolor Inks.
  7. Stamp Merry Christmas with the Merry Christmas Peg in the oval. I stamped mine a little on the diagonal since I wanted to mount my die cut on the diagonal.
  8. Run Versacolor Umber over the bakers doily to give it a flesh color.
  9. Adhere the 4 x 6 to the 5 x 7.
  10. Add the denim blue crinkle ribbon.
  11. Position the bakers doily so it will be beneath the snowman and adhere.
  12. Cut a small piece of the ribbon and tie it around the snowman’s neck to make a scarf.
  13. Position the die cut and snowman and adhere.
  14. Place “rhinestones” as desired.
  15. Tie a bow and attach by snowman on the ribbon.
