Basic Grey - Making Snowman Faces

I had a wonderful time at the NEC exhibition and chatted to many wonderful people. Lots of inspiration and a few purchases. I should have taken some pictures but it's just too busy and I'm not too good at that either!

Here's a card for the Basic Grey Challenge 11 - One for the boys...

I also used Lauren's Sketch, it's been a while since I had the chance to use one and it fitted my idea so well.

When I saw the made of snow set I knew that it would be great to incorporate a fun element. I wanted to try the view master technique and with the faces changing.

I'm so pleased how this card turned out! Mainly because I redesigned the working elements so that they work in the thickness of a foam pad!

I got to use my new long nestabilities too! (NEC buy) The hat and scarf have been stamped and embossed on patterned paper, cut then placed with 1mm foam.

These are all the cute snowman faces finished with copic markers! Dillon loved them! So he has his own mini version! Too Cute!

And doesn't this sentiment just make you smile?

Paper: BG - Figgy Pudding, white card,
Die's: Nestabilities - Long Rectangle, circle and squares,
Stamps: PTI -
Made of Snow, Merry & Bright
Ink: Versafine - Black, Tim's distress inks, Colourbox chalks, Copic markers, sakura stardust,
Other: Pretty pearl, 3D foam, Big Bite & eyelet,

Thanks for stopping by, will be catching up on all your blogs over the next week, BiG HuGs, have a good Sunday, Kim x

Hi dear! Another gorgeous gorgeous card! You should really come here so I can copy how you make them - in person!

When you consider having a holiday in Canada (my area), hotel is mine (only thing, can't keep it tidy :P)but it has lots of toys for the kiddos!
