Little Frosty Catches a Snowflake


Happy Sunday evening!! I hope you have had a marvelous weekend are ready for a fun and exciting upcoming week. I tend to hide alot these days and take all roads around town. I am NOT a Christmas shopper unless you can buy it on-line...lol

Since we had some real live snow on Saturday, I just had to ink up this Frosty with Snowflake from Magnolia-licious. This cutie doesn't seem to be in stock at the moment but his two little brother snowmen are and they are precious too!!! This little cutie fits the challenge requirements over at Copic Creations too!!! I have to tell you that at one point Saturday looked like a blizzard but absolutely nothing remained on the ground after the sun popped out...thus, the end of the blizzard!!! yipppppppeeeeeeeee

I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the papers are BoBunny. Little Frosty was stamped twice on Cryogen White and one image was cut out...both were colored with Copics. For those of you who have asked, I use the cool grays, C00 and C0 to color Frosty before blending him completely with the blender. I used Diamond Stickles for the snowflake he is holding. After propping up one of the images I then outline the entire image with BG0000 and C00 on the ground. The corner snowflakes are punched MS Himalayan flakes covered with Twinklets and then adding Karen Foster red jewel centers. To finish the front I added several red Swarovski sparkles, some organza ribbon and silver cord, and a mitten charm.

The inside is just several chipboard glittery snowflakes with the same red sparkles, another red bow and a snowman charm for the jotting spot.

I would like to remind you that at Belles 'n Whistles we are starting the second week of our Advent Calendar and if you are not visiting everyday you are missing out on the opportunity to win some fantastic prizes...As a matter of fact there is a great prize EVERY day through the 25th!!! I will have a posting on Thursday, December 10 so I hope you can come by and see me as well as visiting the BnW blog...I might even have some sweet stuff too...wink!!!

Thank you so much for visiting Frosty and me today and I look forward to seeing you again real soon. Please let me know what you think of this little snowfolk. I love hearing from you!! Have a wonderful week and until we meet again...Bunches of Maggie Hugs!!!!

Another beautiful card. I borrowed your twinklets covered snowflakes idea. I love that look. I'm more a scrapbooker than a card maker but you are inspiring me to look for some cute stamps so I can start making some cute cards. =)
