#154 Snow

Lin is hosting today and she has chosen Snow for her theme. I am sure there are still lots of snowy creations to be made for Christmas!

As it is the last challenge of the year Kim thought that it would be nice to add a prize.


I've used an image and paper set from My Craft Studio. Each layer was printed on Ryman Matte photo paper and layered using sticky pads. The sentiment was generated in Photoshop Elements.

I have used the stamp set (Snow One Like You from Gina K Designs)
given to me by a Crafty Friend to create my 'SNOW SCENE'. Background is a Memory Box Stencil and Trees an old Cuttlebug Christmas Set.
Snowman has his scarf and hat paper pieced.


I used some scraps of designer paper for my background and the LOTV stamp Penguin Pals for my central image which I coloured using Promarkers.

This is Barkley by Crafter's Companion.  He was colored with copics.  Fun flock added dimension and fun to his hat. Stardust Stickles for some glittery snow finished this snowy scene.
Merry Christmas to you!


Using Hunkydory Festive Birds of Britain


I have created a shaker card with no "snowflakes" inside.

I created a snowflake-wreath and paired it with this cute snowman from Paper Smooches.

I have used a lovely Woodware snowman stamp for my card. I created plenty of snow with some torn paper and glitter glue.

 Another inked background from me... I used a Sheena Douglass stamp, distress inks, glamour dust for ice and polar white flowersoft for the snow in my wintry scene.

For my Snow themed card I decided to try a new card shape which opens to reveal this scene. The cabin is a Hobby Art stamp and the rest has been created with die cuts and lots of 'Fluffy Stuff'.

#153 Depict The Poem 'Twas The Night Before Christmas, Winner and Top 5

I hosted our ‘Night Before Christmas’ challenge, and I am sad to say that a large percentage of people who entered clearly didn’t bother to read what was required of them, and just entered anyway. If you didn’t receive a comment it’s because you didn’t bother to tell us what part of the poem your creation depicted.
Anyhow of those that did follow the theme properly I have chosen my winner and top 5, as follows:-

Wow what can I say. A gorgeous piece that I can see gracing every Christmas in the future!
and my Top 5 are:

Such a gorgeous vintage/shabby chic feel. It just exudes Christmas
Another gorgeous card with amazing colouring
Love the colouring here too!
CAS at it's very best!
Just how I picture Santa flying over the city rooftops!

Congratulations to you all, please take our Winner's or Top 5 badge for your blogs.
We hope to see you back at 12 noon for our final challenge of 2015.
