Simon Says........Let it Snow!!


It's time for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!


This week our theme is Let it Snow!  You can do anything that has to do with snow - snowmen, snowflakes, you get the picture.  I was in a pink mood this week:


SSS Dec 11 Let it Snow

I started with this old peachy pink snowflake design paper, not even sure where it comes from.  I colored this darling snowman from Hero Arts Snow Much Joy set in pink and brown, and added some pink pearl berries, then cut him out.  Next I tore a snowbank, and stamped my sentiment from Miracle of the Holidays in Soft Blossom ink.  And to finish I die-cut 3 of the Simon exclusive Eliza Snowflakes, glued them together for more bulk, and attached that to my card.  Really simple to make, but it makes me smile - hope it does you, too!

I used a hotter shade of pink for my next card: it was stencilled with picked raspberry distress ink:

SSS Dec 11 Let It Snow (2)

The stencil is Dyan Reaveley's Let It Snow, which I used last week with embossing paste and glitter.  I cut my panel in half and popped it above my card base, on which I'd stamped and silver embossed my sentiment.  Other supplies: Lawn Fawn Let It Snow (sentiment), Ranger Super Fine Detail silver embossing powder, Darice silver sparkle tape, pink and clear rhinestones.

Now it's your turn!  Generous Heidi has provided us with another $50.00 gift voucher
