Hello on a pleasantly cool Sunday afternoon. Today is the bi-monthly Christmas Card Club Challenge, and today our challenge theme was to be something with "S"...selected by our own Hazel.
DeeDee's Digi-s had the cutest Caroling Snowman that was just waiting for an opportunity to be put to work. This "S" challenge seemed perfect, so here is - Ta-DA...Mr. Caroling Snowman and his Snowflakes.
- PRECOLORED image(oh I LOVE those!) shaded with some copics, WofLuna & WofStella, with a bit of red Smooch on his heart buttons. Stickles Stardust on the falling snowflakes as well as the snowbank Mr. Snowbank rests upon. Some Sparkle n Sprinkle Twinkling Clouds sprinkled over the wet Stickles to add some snow. This product does create a very realistic snow look. Mr. Snowman was die cut with a S/B die, embossed the edges and then while still in the die, sponged on some DI Stormy Skies.
- Die-Versions Snow Flurries - smallest of the dies - from a snippet of silver mirror paper. These 2 dies from a 5 die set were just the right size to fit in places of the snippet so that more of it could be used.
- Darice Sheet Music EF was covered with Memento Danube Blue ink, then a piece of white c/stock was embossed. This folder was not large enough to look well with the size of Mr. Snowman, so it was split in half, and a snowflake design paper from MME's 6x6 'Tis the Season was embossed with another Darice Holly EF (you can't really see the embossing- sorry!), then an MS border punch was used on each edge.
- Greeting is from the same set as the Caroling Snowman, die cut with a S/B die. Used some blue ink to stencil around the die before removing from the S/B. Sideways placement to avoid covering up Mr. S.
This little guy will be linked to the Snippets Playground Week 141 since the snowflakes & the sentiment were cut from Snippets.
Come to think of it, there's a NBUS challenge #2 going on over at Our Darnell's place and I've wanted to join in the fun. Since the Die-Version die is definitely a NBUS, as is the Sheet Music EF, I think I'm gonna jump in.
There's a new September Challenge going on over at DeeDee's that you might want to check out & perhaps enter. I'll be back later with the featured digi of the month over at DeeDee's.
In the meantime, sending Big Hugs and prayers that you are enjoying a marvelous afternoon, and getting ready to face whatever the coming week has awaiting you. As always, many thanks for joining me today.
EDIT: I'm trying to do too many things this afternoon! I forgot to say you can see the Christmas Club Member list over in the right sidebar, and if you've got a few moments, do check out the links and enjoy some delightful Christmas cards with something "S".
