Just Us Girls Challenge.... JUGS2 Snowman 23

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, October 11, 2009 @ 9:44 PM | , , , ,

Hi Everyone! Happy Columbus Day to my American friends & Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends :) If you have the day off from work, I hope you are enjoying yourself doing something fun! I would like to thank those of you who have visited the Just Us Girls Challenge site, signed up to be a girlfriend & have left a comment :) If you haven't already, I sure hope you do :) There are MANY fun things going on over there so I hope YOU join along! For those of you who are not aware, you DO NOT need a blog to play along in weekly challenges. All you need to do is establish a free account with a public gallery such as Splitcoast Stampers, SCS, take a picture of your photo, then upload it to your newly established gallery & post the link on the Just Us Girls blog using Mr. Linky!. If you need help with this process, by all means email me & I will be more than happy to help you :) My friend Julie, over at Julie's Open Window, sent me an email yesterday sharing her incredible news that the snow was flying in Illinois already! Yikes! Julie's news inspired me to make this snowman card! I had sooo much fun with this week's paper piecing technique for the Just Us Girls second challenge, JUGS2, & celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month with the use of PINK on my creation, I decided to make another card! For sketch inspiration, I used the CPS137 sketch & just flipped it sideways. For more inspiration, be sure to visit both the Just Us Girls & the Card Positioning Systems sites :) I'd love to know if you have given this paper piecing technique a try? Be Sweet!

Here is my paper pieced Snowman card:

The SU Kraft paper was embossed using the Cuttlebug snowflake EF. I inked up my snowflake image from PTI's Winter Swirls with VersaMark, then sprinkled on the embossing powder, heated with a small crafty heat tool!
With this Closeup pic, you can really see all the layers! I layered the hat,the 2 balls, the frosting & the cupcake wrapper! Soooo many pieces, sooo many textures.
Here are some of the supplies I used to make this card:
I wanted to show you how this lil' guy looks so cute, embossed & close up!

Thanks for making a cutie!

He is just gorgeous! I love the embossing on the snowmana and the border. That punch is fab. Your layers, layers, and more layers are what makes this card really stand out. The snowflakes are adorable too.
You rocked this one!
