Sparkly Snowy Night

Good Wednesday morning.  I have a cute project to share with you today that I made for a challenge of at Splitcoaststampers to use black, white and a little pop of color.

I cut the frame, ran it through my wave crimper and mounted it over the black sky card base with mounting tape.  I love how the design of the frame appears like snow drifts.  I applied glossy accents and glitter to the tree and tucked it in behind the frame.  I popped up the branches with glue dots so it would stand out against the sky.

I assembled the snowman, added tiny sprigs of pine and red berries to his hat and scarf and added touches of glitter to make him sparkle.  For another element of sparkle I punched out several tiny snowflakes, applied touches of glossy accents and dipped them in glitter. This little night scene is so much more sparkly in person than you can see in the photo.

    I am very bad about leaving comments on blogs (something I am going to try to improve). However, I wanted to take a moment to tell you that you have taught me so much. I have been following your blog for sometime now. After seeing your projects made with the house and window dies, I made an impulse buy and bought several of the dies you regularly use. I can’t thank you enough for continuing to use the same dies in your projects. Many times, designers use a tool (die, punch, etc.) once or twice and move on. The inspiration you provide using many of the same items on a regular basis is AWESOME and very appreciated!! You also provide clear directions for recreating projects for those of us who are new to this. Just wanted to let you know that You ROCK, Kitty! Thank you!!

    What a beautiful card! I love the many ways you make that snowman look different. He is so cute! By the way, went back and ordered the twig wreath set and the tree die you used today! Couldn’t help myself, but as Judy said, I love that you show us so many ways to use the dies.
