I have used the new extra large oval, 1 3/8" and 1/8" circle, bauble, tab, word window, star, 2 step bird, small heart punches. I have added some Crystal Effects to the hat band & Dazzaling Daimonds to the heart & the snowman's body. I have used my stampin' pastels to add a little colour to his cheeks and give some definition to his body.
For the first card I have used some of the fabulous Celebration 12x12 papers as I thought this design reminded me of a string of Christmas lights!! I have added some of the crisp white organza ribbon, the sentiment is from the Delightful Decorations stamp set and layered up with circle punches.
I loved this red paper with hearts all over it from the Play Dates 12x12 papers, I have used the same ribbon & sentiment as before, but I have used some of the gorgeous Frost Whits shimmer Paint to stamp snowflakes from the Serene Snowflakes stamp set.
I have put this picture under my light to try and show just how shimmery they are in real life!! The sparkle on the smnowman is the Dazzling Diamonds I have added around his body.
This is Lucy's snowman she made yesterday, he is still out there but the snow is much more compact today. The school is open again but I'm not looking forward to going back out on the roads to pick them up as I have just got home from taking Darran to collect his car and had a nightmare drive!! The roads have turned into tracks of shinny black ice, the temperature dropped 4C in minutes and another car didn't manage to stop at the roundabout & went into the back of us!!! Thankfully my car looks OK, but I will have to get it checked at the garage later - I need my car to get Philip around it was difficult enough at the start of this year - please melt away soon!!!! If you have to go out on the roads take care!!
