There's Snow Place Like Home!

Happy Wednesday!  I have a card to share today using the new inspiration from 

This challenge is Winter Warmth  
Hope you can join us and play along.

I was inspired by the cup, snowflakes, and cocoa!  I created a vintage inspired card.

 I started with a panel of vintage cream card stockI ink blended the background using Ranger Distress Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs, and Walnut Stain inks. I added some water splashes as well as some ink splatters using the same distress inks.  To intensify the splatters, I used some black acrylic paint mixed with water.  I used PTI Border Tin Stitch die to create additional texture.  I die cut the panel using an Avery Elle pierced rectangle frame.

I stamped another vintage cream card stock panel with a MFT gingham background stamp(retired) using Schoolhouse Red Ink.  I added this panel to a top folding vintage cream card stock base.  I ink blended some antique linen distress ink around the edges of the card base.  I added the ink blended panel to the top slightly tilted using some foam tape. For the hot chocolate mug, I used PTI Cup of Love die.  I used pure poppy card stock and ink blended some pure poppy ink around the edges for added definition. 

I used SSS Eliza Snowflake Wafer die for the the cup. I added two additional snowflakes using Kaleidoscope Snowflake dies. I used Paper Rose Sentiment Strip die to create the cinnamon sticks.  For the sentiment, I used SSS Snowflake Season stamp set.  Once everything was assembled, I used some white acrylic paint to add even more splatters.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.

I am playing along with Simon Monday Challenge and Simon Wednesday Challenge to use something new.  I received my SSS January Card Kit.  The Eliza Snowflake Wafer die is new!

Here is a list of many of the products I generally
use every time I make a card.
