Snow Boy Friend 35

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, December 15, 2009 @ 1:00 AM | , , , , , ,

Hi Everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful day :) I had some free time to play with my crafty toys so I made this card. Sarah a t Live, Love & Scrap shared this super cute card, Sparklie Snowgirl Card & that is where I fell in love with these Snow Friends! I combined several challenges to make this card. In no particular order: For Sketch Inspiration, Splitcoast Stampers #258, SC258, For Color Inspiration, Embellish Magazine Color Challenge with Snowflakes and at Crazy 4 Challenges, the girls are challenging us to use SNOW on our creation this week, C4C15. It doesn't snow enough here in Phoenix to build Snow Friends - Do you build Snow Friends with your kiddos? Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!


Here is my Snow Boy Friend card:


I inked up a PTI Snow Swirls Snowflake image with VersaMark, stamped on the SU Chocolate Chip cs, then heat embossed using White Filigree embossing powder. I ran the PTI Lemon Tart cs through the Sizzix Big Shot Express using the Cuttlebug Snowflake EF for a little texture.I made my Snow Boy Friend using the Cricut Snow Friends cartridge. I cut my little guy 3" tall. I stamped his mittens & hat with SU Chocolate Chip ink applied to a PTI Bitty Dots Basics polk a dot image & added a bit of Ranger Antique Photo ink. The rim around his hat has some Martha Stewart flock on it but I wish I knew how to make it thicker! If anyone has suggestions, I would love to know your secret!!!

Ingredients Used: Stamps: PTI Snow Swirls, Bitty Dots Paper: PTI Kraft, Lemon, Aqua Mist, SU Chocolate Chip, Whisper White Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, Ranger Antique Photo, VersaMark Sprinkles: Cricut Snow Friends, SU Curly Label Punch, silver ribbon, brads, Martha Stewart Snowflake punches, Offray ribbon, Making Memories hardware, Cricut Expression, Filigree white embossing powder, Cuttlebug Snowflake EF, buttons from stash, PTI Aqua Mist ribbon, EK Success border punch, Martha Stewart flock

Oh, Mona, this is just darling! I absolutely love your snow friend! All of the intricate details in the card relly make it wonderful! I love his polka dot hat (w/ flowers!) and mittens!

I've never used the MS flock, so I am no help there, but when I use Flower Soft I can usually get it pretty thick.

Mona, I am loving this little guy. He is soo cute. I want to play with the Embellish challenge too. I STILL don't have everything finished yet.

Too cute! I love the snowman but my favorite, believe it or not, is your cute little tag with bow. It's so perfect and it "finishes off" this card so well! You are so good with your little design touches!

Hey Mona! I absolutely adore this card! There is so much going on with it that I don't know what to concentrate on! I really love the snowman (duh!) but I am amazed by the intricate stitching and embossing that you've done! Girl, I'd so love to be a fly on the wall to watch you create or better yet just attend a class that you are teaching! Hint hint! Thanks so much for this very inspiring masterpiece!

Hi Mona--Love this card. Your little snowman is so whimsical and cute. Great colors. Never a dull moment. You continue to surprise. Sue M.

Julie Ranae said...

This is such a cute card, Mona....if you are still looking for suggestions on the flocking....If you use Dries White glue from Art Institute Glitter, you can really pile up the flock and as it dries white, it will really add to the dimension.

Shana said...

You've outdone yourself on this one - adorable! I'm a sucker for snowmen though. :)

Laura Davis said...
