Let it Snow!

Well, I don't really want any more snow...we got enough two Saturdays ago to suit me just fine!  The snow lady on this card may be wishing for more snow, however:


Isn't this so cute?  The snow person is a cut file from My Scrap Chick, found here.     My version of this file is a snow lady, and her snow duds are cut from the MME "Merry" 6x6 pad.  Her body is cut from white shimmer cardstock.  I used Spun Sugar, and Tumbled Glass distress inks to add depth to  my snow lady.  The hearts, her nose, and the bells on her hat are coated in Glossy Accents.  The tree paper is from the "Whimsy Christmas" 12x12 Recollections pad.  The snowflake she's trying to catch is the Lindeman Snowflake from Memory Box.  I've had that die for a good while now, and this is the first I've used it!  *Tsk, tsk*  To dress it up, I covered it in Versamark, used Ranger sticky embossing powder, and after heating that, I dumped Deco Art Glamour Dust all over it.  Here's a close up:
 
 
It looks so much better IRL, I promise!  The sentiment is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink, and comes from Studio G.

  2. I personally like to think she's throwing all of the extra snow back up into the sky where it can most certainly stay for a while ... thanks again for BLING-ing with us at Jingle Belles.

  3. Thank you for your kind comment Marie. I loved the Stampfairy images and have quite a lot of them, it was such a shame when the digi shop closed down, then again it's prevented me from spending money!! Love your snowlady card, such pretty colours xx

  11. That snow lady is adorable and your paper choices are perfect. I haven't felt the need to transition to an electronic cutting machine (I have Cricut Expressions) but this image is making me change my mind! I love how you jazzed up the snowflake too.
