Retro Rubber Challenge 174...
Mimosas For AYSI...

A Snowman In Winter...

I have not played along with any challenges in I don’t know how long but mojo struck so I thought I would give it a try!  I am playing along with the sketch from The Paper Players and the colors from The Card Concept.  It’s a clean and layered card and I am quite pleased with the results.

I started with stamping the fence in Sahara sand and soft suede directly on the card base.  I stamped the snowman in London fog and added the hat, arms, and face before die cutting it. pp cc 1

I stamped, cut and then added the bits of garland and a couple of birds to the fence before adding the snowdrift and snowman.  The sentiment is contrary to a snowman’s wishes – he would want cold blessings! pp cc 2

This card really came together for both challenges – the sketch showcases the colors and wintery inspiration for the card.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies:  CS:  PTI white.  SU! real red.  Inks:  Memento London fog and black.  SU! soft suede, Sahara sand, mossy meadow, real red and pumpkin pie.  Dies:  MFT stitched snowdrifts.  PTI linen plate and fence line – winter.  Memory Box resting birds.  Stamps:  PTI fence line – winter and just sentiments – warmth.

LOVE your little snowman scene...really such a sweet card! Thanks for playing along at The Paper Players!


So glad you came looking for some inspiration - I know exactly how you feel. When Im in a mojo funk, playing along with challenges really helps! I love your take on the sketch and your little scene is absolutely adorable. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week

This little scene is so cute. Often hard to find scenes in a CAS card, and you knocked this one out of the park. Beautiful work.

Jane, I thought I hadn't seen you in any galleries for a while - but thought that could have been because I haven't been playing much either! What a beauty to get back in the groove with. It's a well-deserved Cut Above!
