Papertrey Ink and Stamping Boutique Snowman card.

Hello everyone and a very warm welcome to Maarit from Violet's Corner, who is joining us as a new follower. Maarit works as a teacher in Sweden, is a member of a number of Design Teams, and her blog is full of inspirational projects. Do pop over to say hello.

It is time for another challenge over at Holly Jolly Christmas

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

and this time Julie is challenging us to use snowmen on a project. We are sponsored this time by 

The Stamping Boutique


I used an image from the Stamping Boutique called Chubby Snowman, and I decided to try a large format 8 inch by 8 inch card for a change.

 I started by colouring the image with Copic Markers and then added some chalk to enhance the snowbanks. Some glitter was put on the hat and birdhouse before I added some snow fall with a white gel pen. Some Glossy Accents on the buttons finished him off and I then matted him onto some black card. The blue card was embossed with a Cuttlebug E/F, and the Snow words were cut with a Papertrey Ink die and stamped with a snowflake background stamp. The words 'let it' were cut on mySilhouette Cameo.

 I must confess that after I challenged myself to use a larger format, I was tempted to change my mind when I had the blank card in front of me. I wondered how I would fill the space - but I'm glad I continued and might try this again!

Why not pop over to the Holly Jolly Christmas Blog and check out all the inspiration from my talented Teamies.
