FM36 Baby It's Cold Outside

Today's challenge at the Friday Mashup focuses on snowmen. Hmmm... I don't really have a lot of snowmen. So I pulled out my one image that is larger than minute size.


So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project featuring "Snowmen".
  2. Or Make a project using the colors "Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze & Basic Grey".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Snowman project with the colors Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze & Basic Grey".
I turned to Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew for help with this one. Using the given color scheme, I followed their sketch challenge to create my card.

I kept adding more and more, and finally it started shaping up. And I can't make snow without a bit of glitter.

Stamps: A Cute Christmas; Paper: Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, Basic Gray, Whisper White; Ink: Basic Gray, Blushing Bride marker, Baja Breeze marker, Basic Gray marker; Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Button, White baker's twine, Coluzzle, Snowburst embossing folder, Circles #2 die, Snowflake #2 die, Northern Frost die, Perfect Pennants die, Big Shot, MDS for sentiment (Best Wishes & More), Two-way glue pen, Dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card Heidi. I just love the embossing. I am surprised to see that so many folks dont have snowmen stamps. I guess I just assumed that snowmen were popular, LOL :)

Heidi, this is adorable! Great take on that sketch! I love the way you embossed the snowflakes into the baja layer...one of my favorite techniques!

Cindy said...

wow, that was a challenging sketch, but you really made it rock! Love the color combo (never would have thought that one up!), and the subject matter is one of my faves. I love snowflakes and snow people!
