It's a White Out

Happy Friday - I hope all of you in the States had a wonderful Thanksgiving and survived the shopping!!  Some stores here are having Black Friday sales, but I don't think I will be hitting them, although my mother in law is in town so we will be shopping.

This weeks Bellariffic Fridays theme was an all white card (aside from the image) This challenge was really a challenge for me!  I love my colours, pattern paper & layers - I even tried to suggest allowing coloured base layers but the babes shut me down (I did notice they said you all could have more leeway then me!)

I inked up one of my Christmas images that hasn't been introduced to mementos ink - Snowman with a birdie on top and stamped on bella's bestest white paper.  In some ways it was fun not to have to think about the colours I chose for his hat & scarf - I went with purples and grey (you know grey in the new black). I made the birdie red for a cardinal since they seem to be a holiday bird.  For the snow I used liquid applique and glamour dust glitter.

I layered the image on white cs cut with nesties and layered that on white cs that I embossed with cuttlebug's snowflake embossing folder.  I stitched around this layer & added the white ribbon and layered it on my final piece of white cs, on the bottom of this piece I used my ek success snowflake border punch.   I must confess I made 10 in total, but the rest had a few black layers on them!

Next weeks Bellariffic Fridays theme is SNOW - somehow, somewhere on your card you need snow.  Email your card to Em by Thursday to be included next Friday and you could win some bella bucks

Em is running a BLACK FRIDAY SALE!!   for EVERY order OVER $50 you will receive 5 free stamps (we choose) included in your order!!  The retail value can be up to $50!  all for FREEEE!
The sale last until Monday night!!  Head on over to Stamping Bella to take advantage of this sale AND there won't be any line ups! 

Thanks so much for stopping by - have a fantastic day
