Made of Snow

I finally got a chance to play with the stamp set I won from Papertrey Ink. Snowpeople are my favorite and this stamp set is the cutest thing! I really love the versatility of it. I decided to paper piece this first card, using the same paper as the background. I put a sparkle in his eyes with a glitter pen and a blush on his cheeks with chalk. His nose is colored with a yellow-orange Copic, I just couldn't see a real orange-y nose going on this guy, so I opted for something more subtle. I added a few snowflake rub-ons to the white cardstock to liven it up a bit and then gave him a light dusting of glitter.

Supplies-Paper,cardstock and snowflake rub-ons are DCWV. Stamp:Made of Snow(PTI). Ink:Black(CTMH). Bling(Heidi Swapp). Dazzling Diamonds(SU!). Color Media:Markers(Copic). Black At You Spica glitter pen(Copic). Ribbon from my stash.

Since Saturday is World Card Making Day, I plan on making a few more snowpeople cards. And I hope to get the girls involved as well. We are actually expecting RAIN! It is nippy out tonight, as I type this, my window is wide open and I am wrapped in a blanket, and the cool air is on my face. I love being cold! Weather like this puts me in a creative mood. Thing is...I am reading this book right now and I really want to finish it so I can move on to the next one... Oh well, we'll see how the weekend pans out.

I'm glad you stopped by today. Have a wonderful weekend. Blessings~

Love it~snow people are so fun. Love the glitter details. You may be getting rain there, here it's gonna be 81 degrees! Yowza! Although they are commenting we may be getting our first freeze next week.

I can't wait to see what else you come up with.

Thanks for the award/tag! You can check out my blog to see that I acknowledged them both in record time for me. Ü
