Share The Magic - Mojo Monday

Happy October 1st,

Can you believe it's October already. We're having some crazy weather here on the East Coast. It's been a long time since I've seen so much rain in one day. I guess we should be glad the temperature was 80° and not the middle of winter or we'd really be snowed in.

My card today was inspired by a sketch at Mojo Monday. I made this card for the Close to my Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop and I normally only post CTMH cards on my CTMH blog. However, since I used Mojo Monday sketch challenge, I put it here too.

My card today is made with the snowman and tree, two of the 12 stamps in this set.  I glued B&T from the Mistletoe Collection onto cardstock. Then I stamped the Tree in New England Ivy Ink and cut out. Then I applied Red Sparkles where the ornaments are stamped. Then I added white liquid appliqué to the bands on the tree. Since it's an outside scene, I wanted it to look l,ike snow. If you use the tree as an indoor scene, you can treat those bands as garland.

After coloring the snowman, I coated the white part with liquid glass then sprinkled on Diamond Dust. I attached three black pearls for his buttons.

For the snow under the snowman, I also coated with Liquid Glass then sprinkled on Faux Flower Soft that I made by rubbing two pieces of Styrofoam together and using the dust that was left behind. This makes wonderful snow.

The three snowflakes at the bottom were coated with Bonding Memories glue then Prisma Glitter. I attached a white pearl to the center of each.

I used white Embroidery Floss for the Hand stitching around the card. I wanted it to look like snow flakes!
