DL.ART Thankful Thursday #220 ~ Winter

Happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a wonderful start to 2018!! It's time for a new Thankful Thursday Challenge at DL.ART and the theme this week is Winter, or you could always substitute a Thank You card. If you use the code LF222, Diana will give you 10% off your purchase at the DL.ART Shop.


The inspiration for my cards are the upcoming Winter Olympic Games :) I used Elizabeth Craft dies for the mountains, covered with Finnabair Snowflake Paste.


A La La Land Icicle die...okay, it's actually a Seaweed die, but I thought it looked like icicles hanging down ;) Anyway, it was added just above the Memory Box Snowflake Swell die.


The circle is a Memory Box Stitched Circle Tree die, cut out with a Memory Box Stitched Circle die. The glittered ice skates are an Amy Designs die. The sentiment is from Altenew.


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is White as Snow from the Traditional Christmas Bundle.






I am entering this in the following challenges:

1) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge ~ Use Patterned Paper
2) Dies R Us Challenge ~ Anything Goes
3) Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
4) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday ~ Anything Goes


Now it's your turn!! Head over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters created for today's challenge. Then link up your Winter project. I can't wait to see what you create :)

Gorgeous winter cards Lisa! I love the papers, flowers and ribbon on your card it really gives off the cold winter ice feeling! The snow topped mountains is perfect!!

My Card Attic: Hazel said...

These are just stunning Lisa my friend! I LOVE the softness of the muted tones, it suits the subjects just perfectly! You have created magical, wintery scenes (they remind me of a TV program on here in the UK at the moment, called 'Dancing on Ice') and I can just see couples dancing on ice here in your stunning scenes! Have a wonderful day! Love & Hugs. Hazel xx

Oh my gosh Lisa, these are absolutely breathtaking!! I am loving the colours you used, and the monochromatic themes, so perfectly frosty! The skate die cuts are fantastic and the glittery fill is so festive for the theme! So many details to enjoy, I am really loving the design of these!!

I was just getting used to having a Canadian winter this year, when suddenly our temperatures have shot up through the roof. The snow is almost gone! Time to put away the fur lined boots and pull out the galoshes! HAHA!! Hope you are having a great week my friend. sending hugs and wishes :)

Chris said...

Hi Lisa, wishing you a very happy and healthy 2018 with plenty of time to enjoy your creativity. Thank you for all the wonderful comments you have left me...much appreciated!
Your stunning design looks beautiful in both colourways Lisa. The die cuts are gorgeous, love sparkling skates and I'd never have guessed that the icicles was a seaweed die...great thinking there!

These are beautiful.

MaryH said...

How pretty this composition looks with each of the colors. Also love how you've topped the trees circle with the ice skates to emphasize the winter theme. And yes, the icicles looked like icicles, so never would have guessed they were meant to be seaweed. Worked perfectly! Great colors, great layers, great embellies, as usual! TFS & Stay warm. Hugs

Amazing.) and I love that you turned seaweed into icicles. You are so clever! I love how your paper choices all reflect movement.. just like the sweet silver and gold skates. Lovely beyond words! Thank you for the inspiration! I have returned to the precious crafty world and have every hope that it is for good this time. Thank you for never giving up on me. :)
