Snow Family


 I made a little card with the adorable Snow Family from the Lee Holland collection.  Apart from the plain white and coloured cardstock, and the large shaped die to cut the card shape, everything on my card today is from Whimsy Stamps, so I've made a little list with links at the end of the post.

I coloured this sweet little family up with my distress ink markers:

Tumbled Glass (snow and snowmen), Carved Pumpkin, Broken China, Wilted Violet, Antique Linen, Hickory Smoke.

I have to admit that I had this image stamped up and partially coloured for a while now, but just couldn't decide what I wanted to do with it. I originally thought I'd make a shaker card, but then I thought there wouldn't actually be very much 'shaker' visible behind my snow family, so I didn't.

I used some papers from the Winter Wishes pad and used some of the matching enamel dots as centres for my snowflakes.
I do have to say that in the light the geometric snowflakes all matched my colouring, but as by the time I'm home from work it's really dark here, it doesn't look that way on the photograph, my lovely violet snowflakes look more burgundy!

The little sentiment is from the Penguin Adventure clear stamp set, I thought it was perfect for this little group.

You can buy all of these from Dies to Die for in the UK.

That's all from me today but you can find more inspiration here every day in the run up to Christmas!

  5. it is such an adorable little snowman family, Linda! Love your card.
    I know the problem with the darkness. It seems as if I leave the house in darkness and return from work in darkness. Oh the joy of sunny weekends ha ha!
