Winter Cheer

Here's another Snowy card, paired with a Tim Holtz stencil.

Winter Cheer

supplies: white and Mint card stock, Tim Holtz Holiday Knit stencil, picked raspberry and cracked pistachio distress oxide inks, Penny Black Snowy, sentiment from a retired The Craft's Meow set, glue pen and prisma glitter, pink pearls, adhesive foam squares

I first embossed the stencil into the card stock, and then added my inks - I like the subtle difference embossing makes.  I smooshed some picked raspberry onto my kraft mat, spritzed it with water, and then colored in Snowy's hat and scarf this time, adding some glitter to his hat and some pink pearl buttons to his body.  I had first stamped the sentiment in pink, but it faded into the background, so it ended up black, tucked in behind the popped-up snowman.

The oxide inks blended like butta through the stencil, and cleaned up easily, too!  Love these colors together - like sherbet!  Thanks for stopping by......

  7. Ooh, Lin, I have not seen a snowman I didn't love...and this one is so darling! I LOVE the colors, and this stencil is fabulous! The colors are really fabulous too, and I have got to CASE this card. I have an older PB snowman with a little bird atop its hat that I may try. Thanks for your wonderful inspiration all the time! Happy and blessed Thanksgiving, sweet friend! Hugs!
