What Do Snowmen Do In Summer?

Hello everyone! And a very happy Thursday to you all.

Today I am showing you a Christmas tag but with a little quirky humour thrown in too.

one

If you’ve watched Frozen you’ll get my title straight away. Grins.

And if you had our weather you would get my sentiment too.  Since August we have had strong winds and heavy rain.. And it feels like it has been almost every day too. 

I know it is a long time since we have seen a blue sky and some bright sunshine.

My husband works outside so he definitely gets this! Tee hee.

To create this rather funny Christmas Gift Tag I used one of Sandra Caldwell’s images, this one is called 89 Snow Stuffed and I loved him on sight!

To bring him to life I used my Copics in these shades:-

To finish I sprayed liberally with my Spray & Sparkle Irridescent Glitter Spray.

Kit & Clowder Advent Day 12

Hello Everyone and a very happy Saturday to you all.

Today is a great day over at both Scrapper’s Delights and Kit & Clowder on Facebook. There is a fabulous Christmas Advent going on, and for day 12 we have a great Nutcracker theme with awesome giveaways too!

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

I decided to go with a really non traditional colour scheme for my make.. Including using non Christmas papers.. I am really happy with how it turned out!

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

The image is called Nutcracker and he is available from Scapper’s Delights.

The paper is from my Echo Park Scoot paper pad, which is a boy’s paper pack and nothing to do with Christmas at all. But doesn’t this patter look like snowflakes? Smiles.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

And just look at what is on the reverse side too!! It was hard choosing to not use the back. Grins.

The paper clip is from a local stationery shop.  I’m always on the look out for new and different paperclips, so if you know of a good place to shop for them, be sure to let me know in the comments!

To bring my Nutcracker to life, I used my Copics in these shades:-

And the frames around the name are my Labels 29 from Spellbinders.

A Snow Blizzard..

Hello everyone!

And a very happy Thursday to you all.

Today’s card is another Kraft and White Pigment Pen creation.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m not sure about this one. I love the image.. I like the white on Kraft effect. I wanted her to look like she was muffled up against all that snow. But I’m just not sure.. Does she look a little lost with all the white to you?

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Either way, I know that my 13 year old daughter will love it. Smiles. And I love her hair.. (I think that that turned out awesome!) And those very fluffy looking boots! Smiles.

To bring her to life I used my Copics in these shades:-

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Hair.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Skin.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Cheek Blush.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Clothes & Lips.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Shoes.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Skirt.

The dies used for this card are my Cottage Cuts Picket Fence and my Stitched Rectangles from By DIEZyne Dies.

Also my Snowflake Die set from Sweet Dixie Designs.

 

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

I printed on to Desert Storm Neenah for this one. Specially designed Kraft card for makers.

I love the sparkle I get from these Dazzlers! (Papermania.)

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

I curled the snowflakes slightly before sticking down, and I used 3D glue for the fence, for added definition.

The image is called Jnr Hatter Jacie and she is one of the newest releases from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

I adore all of the new releases, they are just gorgeous! Smiles.

(Who am I kidding? I love Little Miss Muffet full stop.)
