Simon Says.........Baby, It's COLD outside!

Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!


We have a fun theme for you this week - Baby, It's COLD Outside!  And my teamies and I are playing with Penny Black goodies.  

My mind went instantly to my Snowy snowman, and I decided to play with him this week.

supplies: white and silver and white glitter cardstock, various design papers in blues and grays, Penny Black Snowy woodblock stamp and Snowflake die, Birch Press Design Let it Snow die, light blue Zig marker and water, glue pen and Prisma glitter

As I've done before, I paper-pieced his scarf and hat - it's fun to add some pattern to him!  And just for fun, I CASEd a card by Nancy Thomas for my 2nd card, using my own elements. 

supplies: Schoolhouse Red, Slate Gray, and white cardstock, Sunny Studio Rainbow Bright dp, Snowy wood stamp, sentiment from a retired Kelly Purkey/Simon collaboration called Let It Snow, Paper Smooches Birch Tree die, cardinal from Impression Obsession Birch Tree die set, Simon Stitched Circle die, snowflake embossing folder, Nuvo Red marker, Signo white gel pen, glue pen and Prisma glitter

This time I colored his hat and scarf with a red marker, then added white dots with a gel pen.  And I tore a circle of white to make snow in the background circle.  

Now it's your turn!  We have a $50.00 gift certificate 


to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!  I can't wait to see what you all make this week!
