My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

FSS - Tipping Hap Snowman



All of a sudden I really got in the mood for making Christmas Cards. No, I'm not rushing the season since I don't like winter. But, if I don't get started now, I'll never get done what I need.

I'm so grateful for the different Christmas card making blogs that run all year long. I just found one called Merry Monday and used this weeks sketch for my card. 

For this card, I used the FSS Hat Tipping Snowman, pre-colored Image. I printed it twice so I could fancy cut the hat, and scarf from the second image. I cut the other one out using a spelbinders ornament die. I then added white Liquid Applique to the snow under the snowman and added chunky glass glitter to it. The added the Liquid Applique to the snowflakes in the sky and added ultra fine clear glitter to them. After it dried a few hours, I heated it with a heat gun and just puffed it slightly.

The papers are retired papers from Close to my Heart. All stitching is done by hand with white embroidery floss in a design to resemble snow flakes.
