Baby it's cold outside!

So, here in Seattle we are having some cold cold (at least for us) weather! So I thought it would be fitting to show you some of the snowy cards I made last week, with a blue theme! The first is this cute Penny Black Snowman:

I colored this cute guy using copic markers. The background paper is from the DCWV holiday collection winter matstack I picked up at Joann's (with a coupon of course!) The cute little sentiment is from Amuse. I added just a touch of sparkle with the plastic snowflakes attached with some glue dots. Can't you just feel the icy snow?

The second card uses Stamps Happen Festive Snowmen:

I love these guys gazing up at the falling snowflakes! I used copics again to color them, and this time punched out the Amuse sentiment using SU's modern label punch, attaching it to the card with dimensionals. The bling is added by using a silver reflecting snowflake that catches the light.

And last (but not least of course!) is this cute little chubby bird going for a snowflake ride:

This stamp is Amuse's Chubby Bird, and is included in their Peace and Cheer clear set. The sentiment is from the same set. The background paper is once again from the DCWV Christmas stack. I also used SU's Bashful Blue, Almost Amethyst and Lovely Lilac cardstock. There are lots of punches used on this card too! The snowflake is a Marvy mega punch, the sentiment is and mat is punched out using SU's oval punches, and the Border is SU's eyelet border punch. I wish there was a punch for the chubby birdie too, but unfortunately I just had to cut him out, color him with copics and attached to the center of the snowflake using a dimensional. Think he's enjoying his ride?

Stay tuned for more Christmas cards this week.... there just may be a few fluffles putting in an appearance!

Brrr! These cute snow cards are perfect for our cold weather in Washington right now. Joan and I had a great time stamping last week and made some fabulous cards (if I do say so myself). Looking forward to seeing Fluffles!
