Retro Sketches meets Play Date Cafe!

Monday night I hosted my monthly Stamping Rules team meeting called Monday Motivations. I just love these team nights when my stamping peeps gather round! This is my card for our fun team swap, based on this week's sketch from Retro Sketches with color inspiration from Playdate Cafe.
I embossed the background with a snowflake cuttlebug folder, then swiped over the surface with CTMH's new Cashmere ink to bring out the snowy texture. The mittens are rolled in Blush and Baby Pink inks. This stamp set is the October Stamp of the Month (SOTM) and it coordinates with the new Artiste Cricut Cartridge. I found with the mittens that I actually preferred to cut the mittens 1/4" smaller than recommended for the image so I didn't have to even try to line it up. A bit of Stardust Glitz Gel finished off my toasty warm mittens! And yes, I did cut that sentiment in half very, very carefully with my microtip scissors.
And here's the line up of adorable swap cards from my fabulous team (plus some fun team friends!">): Theo, LeighAnne, Linnea, Elaine, Cathy, Carolyn, Kelly, and Amanda. Thanks for a  super fun night, ladies!

Only a couple more days to enter to win that fab set of our new Metallic Markers for Friday's Favorite Things! Check out how LeighAnne used them to outline her cute bat card above!
