Itty Bitty Snowman

Today is the beginning of a new challenge at The Crafter's Cafe.
We have an awesome sketch for you today and it was drawn by our very own Aletha!

I am so excited to show you my sample card for this sketch!
This is the first time I have been able to use my new "Roly Poly Warm Wishes" stamp from Itty Bitty by Unity and I think he turned out SO very cute!!

He was drawn by my very good friend and mentor, Tracey Malnofski and I just LOVE him!!
I colored him with some Copic markers and Spica Glitter pen(for the ornaments), then used some Stickles and Creative Inspirations Fairy Dust paint on the snow for a little sparkle.

The background paper is my own creation, from some Snowflake SVG's and some "homemade" Shimmer Mist (hair spray mixed with Pearl Ex)... I cut out the flakes from scrap card stock, laid them out on the paper, then spritzed away...

Here's a better shot of how shimmery it is:

The snowflake SVG's came from Jani, who runs her own blog: Paper Compulsions, her own Etsy Store and a challenge blog called "Cuttin' Up With Class". She also has a Group at The Crafter's Cafe! Talk about a busy lady... AND she makes (and gives away) LOTS of great cut files for die cutters!

This set of snowflakes, which isn't yet available in her Etsy store (but soon will be, I'm told), cuts BEAUTIFULLY!!!!! The top strip is 6 snowflakes welded together and cut at 1" tall and just LOOK at the detail!! 

When I cut out small, detailed, intricate patterns with  my Cricut, I always have one hand on the Pause button, prepared for it to start mangling the paper... with these snowflakes... zip, zip, zip... cut like a dream! 

I sure do hope you feel inspired to try out this terrific sketch and join us at
