Here in New England, the weather can change in an instant. Last week, we had to break back out the capri pants and the t-shirts, this week, its back to sweaters and jackets for the bus stops, and we're peeling layers off in the afternoon. Its totally not unheard of for snow in early November! I'm just not ready for that.
"Baby Its Cold Out" from My Favorite Things will be in the Paper Pretties class kits for people that subscribe to the MFT boxes. I think that it is totally spectacular that Paper Pretties members receive previously unreleased My Favorite Things stamps. They aren't even yet available from My Favorite Things! So swing on over and visit the Pretties site and sign on up! wink
The lady and snowman were stamped with Stazon on Whisper White. I colored them both in with a few Prismacolor pencils that Christie sent me. (Oh goodness, I love them and I'm coveting the full set!) I didn't have an orange yet, so the carrot nose is an SU marker Only Orange. I love that the little hat is a separate element so I was able to have that extend outside of the little bordered box the image is in.
The image is double matted, first in kraft cardstock, then a larger square of Bayou Blue that has been paper pierced and then stitches added with a white gel pen. That whole piece is popped up on a layer of dimensionals (I seriously go through a ton of those things... its crazy.)
The card base is a 5 1/4 square card that I stamped the small snowflake from the set randomly in Bayou Blue across the top.
The bottom half of the card is a piece of the Bayou Blue designer prints to me resembles snowflakes and of course, coordinates beautifully with the double stitched Bayou Blue ribbon from Stampin Up. Its matted on whisper white for a little "pop" off the coordinating card base.
Hope you like it, and look forward to seeing more of this little baby from me! I want to get myself some liquid applique so that I can make those boot tops nice and fluffy!
