Snow Flurries 61

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, July 21, 2010 @ 9:51 AM | , ,

Hi Everyone! Thanks so much for all the sweet comments on my Spellbinders Blog Frenzy projects :) What did you think about the Frenzy? Some amazing new die templates that will be hitting the shelves soon! Can't wait until after CHA next week when the entire line-up will be revealed! What was your fave - the die template that you MUST have & can't live without?

It's quite HOT here in the desert - temps over 100 degrees daily so I thought I would chill out, even if it is my mind & play with the new Spellbinders™ S4-286 Snowflake Pendants die templates. I love these new snowflakes - available in various sizes perfect for scrapbooking pages, cards & altered items - so versatile! Have you seen what Spellbinders Blog Team DT Member Becca Feeken shared? Be sure to check out her amazing projects - you will surely be inspired! Here is my warm winter wishes card:

For sketch inspiration, I joined in the fun & played along with this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #6, WMSC6


For a little shimmer & glimmer on the snowflakes, I sprinkled some glitter from Sprinkle & Sparkle all over them making them look like a girls best friend ;)

I inked up the lil' snowman image from the Waltzingmouse Stamps: Sewing Box - Christmas set & colored his top hat. For added dimension, I cut the lil' guy out & popped him up using 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives. If you are like me & LOVE to stitch on your projects OR if you like the stitched look but don't want to mess with your sewing machine, then you will surely appreciate the intricate faux stitching on the darling images in this set :)

That's all I have for today - Thanks for looking!
