Snow Angel

Hi everyone! We are just rootin' and tootin' right along into December! We've had a little rain which we desperately needed so no complaints here. It's time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog - and it's our next to last challenge this year... can you believe it?! I'm absolutely thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #91 - Winter Wonderland! We are being sponsored this time by Karleigh Sue Digis, Little Blue Button Stamps and The Paper Shelter so come on over and play! We want to see your Winter-themed project!

I played with the oh-so-adorable 'Snow Angel' digital image and coordinating paper from The Paper Shelter. OMG, is this not just the cutest image ever?! I had the best time putting this card together - used some fun puffy alphabet letters and Tim Holtz Label Letters. And how about that 'phat' bow with loops of gold thread?!

You can't really see it well in the photos, but I splattered the background with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Amethyst marker, which looks really cool. I'm using my double-stitched oval dies again... just love those things! I stamped and fussy cut a pretty snowflake to use as an embellishment. And that image couldn't be any cuter, lol! I don't generally use pre-colored images but those wintery colors are perfect and I couldn't resist!

I kept the inside of this one pretty simple with just a stamped sentiment on a layered panel.

Proud to enter this awesome wintery card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock, Stampin' Up! Pacific Point cardstock
  • Stamps: The Paper Shelter 'Snow Angel' digital image, GKD Snow Frame duo, Stampin' Up! Cozy Christmas stamp set
  • Ink: Tsukineko Delicata Golden Glitz ink, Stampin' Up! Pacific Point ink, Spectrum Noir Sparkle Amethyst marker, Sakura white gel pen
  • Dies/Punches: Cottage Cutz Double-Stitched Oval dies
  • Accessories: Tim Holtz Idea-ology Label Letters, Freckled Fawn Puffy Alphabet Letters, Prairie Bird Boutique blue wrinkled ribbon, gold thread, Winter Blues rhinestones, large blue gemstone

I hope you've found a little inspiration to play in our Winter Wonderland challenge this time! And don't forget to visit Karleigh Sue DigisLittle Blue Button Stamps and The Paper Shelter - I know you'll find something you just can't live without!
Scrappy hugs,
