 Warmer with You

Let me show you now what this winter set inspired me to make! 

#snelfie

How cute are these snowpeople?  I got kind of excited that they were all slightly different sizes and could totally work as the four people in my family, especially with these from all of us greetings! (Don't know about you, but I can't help seeing the little line art images representing each person that people put on their rear windows lol!) Although their arms aren't quite long enough, stamping them at angles instead of straight up and down along with a strategic crop and you have a snelfie on your hands! Cardstock is Pure Luxury White and Black Onyx.

These trees in this set are as elegant and as the snowmen are adorable! For this design, I masked off three sides of my GKD Pure Luxury Heavy White card base with sticky notes and a cut a gentle wave of snow banks from scratch paper for the bottom.  Then I sponged GKD Edible Eggplant, Navy and Blue Denim, removed the mask, stamped the trees in Versamark and then embossed with detail white powder.  I used a white gel pen to make stars/falling snow, and finished with the sentiment.

Finally with all these gorgeous snowflakes in the set, I had to get them inky on a clean and simple white single layer card.  the different flakes are stamped in GKD Turquoise Sea, Ocean Mist, Dusty Rose and Black Onyx.  From this angle they look darker, but I added some teal adhesive sequins to a few flakes for texture and shine.

Are you in love with this or what?  It will be a great holiday go to for sure, pick up your set today!

Ready for more inspiration? Let's go!

Beautiful cards. I like how you tilted your snow family slightly as if they were looking into a camera. They look so playful. The colorful snowflakes on the last card are quite lovely.
