Winter Wonderland



This week's challenge at Our Creative Corner is to use snowflakes and/or snowmen on your card. Easy, right? So no excuses for not playing along ;) Be sure to hop on over to the Our Creative Corner blog for challenge details, plus a beautiful sample from special guest Janice Melton (catcrazy on SCS), as well as samples from the regular OCC designers. For more chitchat on the samples, visit the designers' blogs:

The layout is from Jen del Muro's awesome Sketch for You to Try this week. You can find the sketch, guest designer Becca Feeken's sample, and Jen's sample at i{heart}2stamp. I can't wait to see what the rest of the team put together with this sketch:

I was so excited to ink up this charming little snowman from Verve's new Snow Wonderful set. Isn't he adorable with that sweet, innocent face looking up? I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol, and a blending stump, then layered the three snowman parts using the Paper Tole method. I adhered the snowman to a Soft Sky panel that had been glittered with Icicle Stickles.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
