Let It Snow Blog Hop

Welcome to the Let It Snow Blog Hop! If you popped over from Janet you are on the right path, but if you stumbled on this and want to begin at the start spot go to our blog hostess Shannon
Our theme was to create a project using snow, so LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW seemed like a good sentiment to start my project, or should I say projects, because when I made my original project, I decided I might as well make two, and then that snowballed into three...........
I started with a darling digi by Sherri Baldy and made a tiny wall hanging for my craft studio:
From the top I started out with some twine and a brad to make a loop to attach to a large snowflake I cut out using a Sizzix die (several die cuts and three different colors), then I adhered that onto some LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon which was then used to dangle my digi girl with the Snow theme. For her I used soft pinks (colored pencils) with accents using a gel pen and Stickles.

Well, just like a snow ball hurtling down the hill, I decided to use the same digi for a larger project - a double-sided stand-up card. So here's the Queen of Snow.........

Snow Diva was printed out at about 6" and again highlighted with gel-pens and lots of Stickles, plus she had to have a bow tie made from LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon. I cut her out and then adhered her to sturdy cardstock and cut her out once more. Of course since she's double-sided I had to do the whole process twice with a printed out reverse image and used double-sided tape at the top of her hat to keep the pieces together........yeah, I was a lot of fussy cutting but the result was pretty neat (in my opinion).

After I got those two finished, I received my Toodle digi of the month, which guessed it.......a snow fighting I made a triple stamp card using her image plus SU cardstock and stamps, plus my favorite ribbon yet again - LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon.

I'm going to enter the All That Stickles Challenge All That Stickles
