Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?

Ugh, I can't even believe I used that title....as now that darn song is going to be stuck in my head for days. Not really a huge fan of the film, although it is beautiful, and I do like Olaf. Speaking of the little snowman, this week, the Stampendous team is sharing various projects made with snowmen. And I've got one to share with you today. I used the Build a Snowman set (no, really! That's what it's called!)

I built these 2 friends using several of the stamps in the set. 6 total, plus the sentiment. I also used 5 snowflakes from the set on my card base.

I colored the snowmen with Prismacolor markers, and 2 Spectrum Noir markers. I created the clouds (or crazy avalanche?) using the Picasso Stencil from Stampendous/Dreamweaver. I used Tumbled Glass ink for that. I used a Spellbinders die to cut that funky shape out.

I heat embossed my snowflake background with Sparkle Puff embossing powder. It has just enough dimension, coupled with just enough glitter. That's all for me today.  A couple of other gals are posting today, and the Stampendous Blog will have a list up tomorrow. But today, please visit the ladies below. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
