Let it Snow

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built and this week it is a fan favorite: Anything Goes!! And here is the card I created for your inspiration:
 I used my mini MISTI for this so I could stamp the scarf in red while keeping the rest of the image stamped in black.  I used a red marker to stamp the scarf and then made a mask by stamping it again on scrap paper.  I placed the mask over the stamped scarf and then inked up the entire image with black.  On all the dots of snow, I used my clear Wink of Stella to add a bit of winter feel.  You can see the sparkle better in the photo below.
I created my own corner embellishment by stamping and fussy cutting the holly berries and leaves image.
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the House blog to see the rest of the DT's creations and then get inky and play along with us.  And if you need any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your ENTIRE order coupon code over in my left sidebar.

How beautiful, like the background paper that goes so perfectly with this darling snowman and the sprig of holly is a perfect embellishment along with the die cut Merry Christmas and of course the sparkly snow!

So cute - and love the background paper - goes so well with the snowman. I can see the sparkle you put in the snowflakes, just the right touch. Great job.

What a fun snowman - and nice to see him surrounded by red for a change rather than the usual blues. Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week.
