FCCB #267 - Something New!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #267-Something New
Make a project about or with something new, and explain if it isn't clear!

This Weeks Sponsor

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images. If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

For my project this week I made a fun winter card using the Jolly Holiday Cricut cartridge for the sentiment and mittens and the PPPR (our sponsor!!) snowman cookie cut from the cute Christmas Cookies Cutting Files and snowflake cut from the Winter Wonderland Cutting Files. It was my birthday last week and my sister and I went out for lunch and then she gave my some fun gifts - one of which was this very cool Cracked Tim Holtz embossing folder! I just had to try it as a background on this wintery card. After I embossed on white paper I used a bit of light blue Distress Ink to add a bit of colour to it.

I've been trying to use up things in my stash and this hot cocoa brad is definitely cute! I cut off the prongs and used a foam dot to add it to my card. 

This cute snowman cookie makes me smile!

Inside, I used the outline of the snowman cookie diecut as a stencil and sponged on white ink. Then, I used a sentiment and snowflake stamps from the Pretty Cute Stamps Warm Fuzzies stamp set. They are the sister company to our sponsor, Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons!

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you had a lovely new year and are looking forward to positive things for 2016! Don't forget to stop by the Fantabulous Cricut blog to see what our other Design Team members have come up with for this challenge, and definitely check out the PPPR store and their fun blog too - they have a freebie every Friday available for the week!
