I was not hoping to manifest this theme when i chose it for this weeks Created Byhand Challenge.
I did feature this card a few posts back, and I got a nice comment from T!m Holtz on it. He is very kind and supportive of all of us who use his products and benefit from his inspiration.
I love Tim"s new texture fades. They emboss so deeply it is easy to work on the raised area without messing up the background. and they print beautifully with all kinds of ink.
This background is the paper that came with the embossing folder. The snow quote was stamped in black and heat embossed clear.
I colored the trees with distress inks applied with cut and dry nibs- I love them too- so useful. the snow is versa magic cloud white applied really thick with a nib.
If it is snowing where you are I hope you are enjoying it and are safe, warm and dry. It can be beautiful if you have no where to go, nothing to do and no one to be.
I think I'll meditate on that for awhile

I wasn't going to post this-and i just decided if i ever need to plead -not guilty by reason of insanity- this will help. and it has glitter-stickles- on it(snow/glitter theme). I felt like I had won a prize when T!m sent me the kind words, so i made them into a tag to hang on my studio wall
My credentials.
It also shows how well these folders print- the trees on the right were printed by inking the folder and placing the card inside and brayering. You don't even need a die cut machine.
The flakes on the top were embossed by careful placement of the folder and the tan mat( I use a wizard).
I hope this inspires you to create and share and not worry too much what others thing about you.
You are beautiful to me. thanks for looking.Please leave a comment.


  1. well still as nice as the last time I saw it.
    The tag turned out really great.
    Savour it.

    Snow has stopped but still frigid.

  2. Robyn, these are gorgeous. My only regret is that they did not enlarge enough to see the details you mentioned. I love the layout and the way the trees look.


I love comments,constructive criticism, suggestions and RAK.
