Having Fun in the Snow!

What kids don't have fun out in the snow!  I loved this stamp when I saw it. For one thing, I don't have many little boy stamps or images since I prefer to make girly type cards. But even I saw the cuteness in this little boy and snowman! The other reason I loved this stamp and had to have it was because it reminded me of the traditional song Frosty the Snowman, which I consider a 'happy' song. I love the bucket on his head instead of a top hat and I made his buttons, eyes and mouth black to represent coal. Blue Christmas cards remind me of winter and have a 'cool' feeling to them, which makes the blues my favorite winter color.

The stamp is from Crafty Sentiments Designs and the name of this stamp is Having Fun. The Design Team at Crafty Sentiments Challenge Blog have created some wonderful cards for this challenge topic of CHRISTMAS.


I used a snowflake border die across the top by Memory Box and the two separate snowflakes are a Whimsy die and that's a clear snowflake button with the back cut off glued in the middle of the snowflake. The snowman in the middle of my satin bow is a button from Dress It Up which I cut off the back and glued it on. I used chunky white embossing powder for the snowflakes falling and Cool Glitter Ritz all over my snowman using a glue pen. The snow at the base of the snowman was done with clear 3-D paint and then I sprinkled White Glitter Ritz over it. The fur and pom-pom on my image's hat is done with white 3-D paint. My sentiment is from CardZ TV and I used a Stampin' Up punch on it.



The prize this week at Crafty Sentiments Challenge Blog is this gift voucher from our sponsor, Crafty Sentiments Designs.


Please stop by the Challenge Blog and see the great creations made to inspire you to join this challenge. I'm sure we're going to have a lot of entries this week since the topic is CHRISTMAS!

                                                                                  Hugs,

  8. This is a beautiful card, Gail! I love all the texture you added for the snow - it looks amazing! I have not heard of Glitter Ritz except on your blog - it's really lovely and I've put it on my wish list! Cute sentiment too and I love the little snowman button on your gorgeous bow! Always such a pleasure to visit your blog and see what you have made!

  9. Another elegant "Gail creation", known for her fantastic coloring and detailing !! That bow is really scrumptious and the snowman button makes for an adorable center! And then beautiful blue papers, with of course "lacey" snowflakes. The glitz and glitter and texture just sets it off all that much more. Yes, also loving the bucket on the snowman for his hat -- what a novel idea of improvising.
