Snow Much Fun

Happy Saturday!!! I am sooooo glad to say that this week is over! It has been a pretty hectic one. For those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving, I'm wondering if your attire includes elastic waistbands today lol! I surely would be wearing some nice comfy sweat pants if I had any that were clean... but oh nooooo, I have on a pair of jeans that cut off proper digestion!!! That'll teach me to keep up with the laundry!

However, I am wearing a nice and warm sweatshirt since it's just above freezing in my kitchen where I have my work desk. Brrrrrrrrrrrr... I need my little heater (my puppy dog, Sammy!). I'm so glad that he's a cuddler - that is until Summertime.

So to go along with my frozen fingers and my c-c-c-cold theme, I've chosen to share this card with you which features Snow Fun by Victoria Case for SCACD mini Winter Hearts and Hugs Set.
I've used copics to color up this sweetie-pie: Clothing - R39 R37 R35; Boots - E18 E17 E15 E13; Hair - E49 E59 E25 E53; Skin - E11 E21 E00 R20. Lots of SCACD products on this card... Here's one that I haven't used for awhile: Liquid Applique for the snowballs. The pile of snowballs at her feet are not snow much defined (lol) as the actual balls in her hands, but it gives you the impression anyway. The rest of the snow is freshly fallen which was created using Polar White Flower Soft. I love to use this for realistic looking snow! Her fuzzy collar and top of boots got a sprinkling of Sugar Sparkly Fluff. Great texture all over the place!
In this close up, you can see the background which I created first using a stardust gel pen, then going over the dots with Diamond Stickles. I could have also used my atyou Spica pens, but they weren't as convenient to reach as the gel pen at the time... just saying... hee hee!

Do you like my snowflake? I covered a wooden snowflake with Inka-Gold and rubbed it a bit with my finger until it was bright and shiny (you can see the shine better in the first photo). Then I punched the smaller snowflake out of acetate and covered it with Viva Decor Transparent Gloss Gel. While it was still wet, I sprinkled Glamour Dust over the top and voila! I also attached a beautiful rhinestone in the center and dotted the ends of the large snowflake with Viva Decor Opal Paper Pen and you have yourself one very sparkly, shiny, oh so pretty snowflake!!!

I found it very interesting that although I covered the Prima Mini Roses with the same Diamond Stickles, the color changed between the white and red roses. It looks gold on the red, but it's not! Besides sewing the panels, they also got edged with Gold Stickles. I know what you're thinking... I got my stickles mixed up and really used the gold on the red roses, but honest... I did the roses at the same time and used the diamond!
