Snow is falling …

 

 

Morning all, another week gone and I can’t quite believe it’s November already. If you came to the open day on Saturday I hope you enjoyed it  …we were very busy and had some lovely comments about the new stamps

 

Thanks to everyone who’s left comments on my posts, I will get around to visiting all your blogs and looking at your lovely cards eventually!

 

Time for another challenge over at Lili’s Little Fairies and I really enjoyed making this week’s card, the theme is

 

** snow is falling **

 

 

week 44 - snow is falling - 1st november

 

 

 

I love this stamp, it’s called My Little Tree and I made him into a little scene using again the Papermania Mistletoe Kisses papers which I’ve used a lot lately

The little guy is coloured in with Promarkers, I cut him out and then stuck him on with PinFlair to give a bit of dimension

The sentiment is from the very useful Lili of the Valley Simply Sophisticated set

I stamped the trees (Magnolia) and embossed them in silver. I cut around the bottom so I could tuck the hill ‘underneath’ and them I put some flower soft on them to make ‘snow’ The white card is embossed to look like snow falling and I added a bit if glitter which you can’t really see in the picture

The ribbon is from our showroom but I’m sure you can get similar from the fabulous Ribbon Girl   …finally I finished it off with a few gems

Hope you like it, I’m thrilled that my card is going to be the card that is used on the website to showcase this stamp!! 

 

Have a lovely day, and do stop by tomorrow when I’ll have a card to share that doesn’t use a Lili of the Valley image – yes I know, that’s a bit of a shocker!

  1. Heck yeah I like it, it's great! I love that embossing folder, it makes a nice subtle snowfall. And I like that you used dotty paper for the grass, 'cause it makes an excellent transition from the dotty texture of the white.
