Chillin in the Snow (again...)
When I called my BFF today she asked if I had checked Kristina's colour inspiration yet because I had to do it- naturally I looked while on the phone with her & holy it's my favourite colour PUMPKIN and I LOVE it with Rose Red! So as soon as we finished chatting I had to make a card from Kristina's inspiration!
I picked MFT's Baby It's Cold Outside because I had to shovel again really it can stop snowing here ANY time!
The image is stamped on Gina K's Pure Luxury CS because I planned to colour with my Lyra's and mineral spirits but somewhere along the line I thought it would be great to paper piece her jacket since I had some SU DS paper in Rose Red, then I discovered I had some DS paper in Pretty in Pink and of course
Pumpkin so why not paper piece the whole thing?! Yeah I have to
say this was one of those ideas that sounded really good until it came to cutting each piece of the scarf and gluing them down PLUS I am really not a huge fan of cutting things out; clearly I am getting better at it with all the paper piecing I have been doing lately! I added some bella liquid watercolour glitter to the snowman and snow on the ground.
I decided to have a white background and ran a piece of SU's whisper white cs through my big shot (LOVE THAT THING) with cuttlebugs Swiss Dots for a snowy effect (again it was snowing outside my window while I was making this) The card base is SU's Rose Red and the image is mounted on SU's Pretty in Pink and Pumpkin Pie cs. I added a little Pink ribbon and the sentiment is on Pumpkin pie cs cut with SU's word window punch. I added a stamping bella dot in Bubble gum
Hope you have a great Wednesday; they keep saying it's going to warm up here, but I have noticed it keeps getting put back a day - I am starting to not believe them!
