There's 'SNOW' One Like You

Lin is Hosting for our last Challenge of the year over at
Crafty Cardmakers
and she has chosen SNOW.
Now it is of course snowing in other parts of the world -
just not here but never fear a Crafty Friend sent me
the stamp set - There's Snow One Like You
by Gina K Designs (Thanks Verna)
It has come in sooooooooooo handy
and have used it lots.
For my background I inked blue card stock
with Memento Summer Sky/Paris Dusk.
I also masked a small circle for the moon
(a little hard to see behind the trees)
behind the stencil Garden Birch from Memory Box.
I then attached 2 snowy hills. The 3 trees are cut
and embossed from an old
Cuttlebug Christmas die set. I Kindy Glitzed them
as well as the lines of the snow.
My cute little snowman I fussy cut twice -
once for the main image and the second
with some scrap DP for paper piecing his
hat and scarf. Added a blue pearl for the pom pom.
 I made a frame for the sentiment pole
  which is popped.
Punched a small star for the top of the
 tall Christmas tree.

Please pop over to Our Blog to see the
lovely snowy creations the DT have made
and hope that you still have a little time
to create that last minute card for our challenge.

I am heading north to tropical surroundings
at the end of the week to spend time with Family
 - hoping it won't be too humid
but AC will come in handy if it is.
I will be back early in the New Year so
no crafting for quite some time.
 No doubt my finger will be itching to get
stamping again.

Till then I wish you all a
and as the Scots say
A Guid New Year!

Love this scene. The trees in the background really ad that sense of dimension. Totally cute card.

You have created a beautiful snow scene Ina. I love how you have stencilled with the dark blue ink onto the lighter blue card stock to create your background. A fabulous sentiment and your snowman is adorable. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Sally.x.

What an adorable card. I love the stenciled background, and then the white rolling hills and stylized trees. And of course your sweet little snowman. Speaking of snow, it is doing just that as we speak. it's been unseasonably warm here, so I kind of love seeing the snow. Really wonderful card!

Fabulous! I love how you've created a scene, and the sentiment's bound to get a smile!
