Whimsical Wednesdays "Winter Fun" and A Winner!



Hello everyone! It's time for a new Whimsical Wednesdays Challenge at Whimsical Designs. This time the challenge is to create a Christmas/Winter themed project and it must include "Sparkles". This can be by adding stickles, glimmer mist, glitter, etc, or you can include a premade glittery embellishment. Our very own Nanne is sponsoring this challenge with Websters Scrapbook supplies. And our own Cindy is giving 3 digital stamps. You can see her beautiful digi's HERE.
For my project I made this card. I cut the snowman from Jolly Holidays and stamped the face with a Peachy Keen Winter Wonderland Face stamp. I used a black and white pen for the highlights and a silver marker to color in the bottom of the skates. I punched some snowflakes and "glittered" them up. I did this by putting them through my Xron Sticker Maker and covered the sticky side with glitter. I did the same thing for the ice at the bottom. I added a gem to the center of the big snowflake and stamped the sentiment which is from Whimsical Designs Snow Much Fun stamp set. This set is for sale now in the Whimsical Designs Shop. Don't you just love that saying!?! To finish I tied a bow and pop dotted the snowman to the card.
I hope you all will play along this week and please don't forget to check out what the rest of the Whimsical Designers have created! Have a great day!

Congratulations, Pat! :o) And Gigi, teehee.. this card makes me smile so monstrously. How cute is that snowman with his fabulous PK face?! I love how the Jolly Holidays one always makes me think of a peanut. Hehe. I love how you did his skates! And all the gorgeous glitter... love! Stephanie's sentiment is so perfect for this and I love how you nestled it beneath the shimmery flakes. :o) (Could I have used 'love' any more than I just did?) Marvelous work, my friend!
