White Snow, Pink Hearts

Hello blog friends,

A guest designer card in the cute style to share today. The card is for the My Sheri Crafts Challenge where the theme for the challenge is  “Got Snow?” – create a project with a snowman (or snow woman). The part of South Africa where we live is snow free and a snowman is something I only see on the television or in pictures. I decided to dress the little Penny Black snowman in pink and to give the card a Valentine feeling with pink hearts and roses.I added two strips washi tape to enhance the cute look. The past week we had a heat wave and I can tell you I would rather prefer to build a snowman than battling the sweltering heat! It started raining yesterday and everything looks so pretty today – clean, green outside and all dust washed away.

I entered the following challenges with this card:

Project details:

  • White cardstock
  • Pink designer paper
  • Penny Black clear stamp set “Jolly Friends”
  • Lili of the Valley clear stamp set “Love sentiments”
  • My Favorite Things Die-namics die “Notebook Edge”
  • Washi Tape
  • Paper roses
  • Twine for bow
  • Heart gemstones
  • Tim Holtz distress ink ” Victorian Velvet”
  • Lyra-Rembrandt Aquarelle pencils for colouring

Thank you for visiting today. Have a wonderful day and happy crafting.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

    Hi, Amelia, your little snow person is the sweetest ever! Love that darling rose in the middle of the “mistletoe”. But more than anything, I really like your choice of colors – so sweet, shaded to perfection, and the best adornos ever! Very pretty distressing along the edges of your panels!

    This gorgeous card makes me smile! So pretty and so cute. Marvelous attention to detail, as always. Your cards are just amazing dear friend. Glad you go some rain to cool off. Ours was short lived, in spite of the stormy weather forecast. Enjoy your Sunday and good luck with the challenges.
