FCCB #293 - Snow!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #293-Snow
Make a project about Snow!

This Weeks Sponsor 

Pretty Cute Stamps

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

Any project that doesn't use a Cricut element will be deleted.

For this week's challenge I've chosen to use some cool snowflake cuts from the Gypsy Wanderings Cricut cartridge and cut the pretty snowflake border from the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. It has finally warmed up here a bit, but we still have snow on the ground and there are a few snowman to be seen around the neighborhood. I must say that my favourite snowman are these cute watercoloured ones that I can create in my jammies! 

I stamped the snowman and snowgirl from the Snowmies stamp set from Pretty Cute Stamps (our sponsor this week!) on watercolour paper and used Distress and Tombow Markers to watercolour in my images. I've been loving purple lately and decided to pull some pinks and purples from the Pink Paislee background paper for a pretty winter feeling. I used the snowy background stamp (see image below) included in the set to add white heat embossed snow as a resist in the background before adding some blue watercolour.

I used some snowflake and heart stamps from the Little Llama Pretty Cute Stamps set - there are two sizes of snowflakes in this set and I used Distress Inks to add them to my wintery scene. I added a sentiment stamp from the Snowmies set right below my snowmen.

Inside, I added the outside cut to the negative snowflake I put on the front, some matching paper and a couple more snowflake stamps.

I love the fun, wintery look of this card. These lovely sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps, including these NEW snowflake sequins (so pretty!) add some shiny glimmer as a finishing touch!

Here's a peek at the cute stamp sets I used above:
