Paper Smooches Guest Designer: ❅❅there's snow one like you❅❅





I really can't believe that I'm the 




After the sheer excitement slowly subsided, I started to mildly panic.  Um, have you seen the designers and guest designers for Paper Smooches?!!!!  Gah, talk about talent...thinking outside the box and a whole load of clever ideas....

So here we go, I channeled...well, me.

cardstock:  strathmore  stamps:  paper smooches/cool dudes & fresh snow  ink:  zing/black & white, watercolors  other:  paper smooches/large snowflake & gift tags 2 dies, italian wool felt, mme enamel dot

I really enjoy working with Strathmore watercolor paper.  On this card I colored that SWEET Snow Couple from the new Cool Dudes with a basic watercolor tray.  I add some very subtle color  as shadowing on their bodies and even did a smidge of blush on the lovely snowgirl.

The tag is from the new Gift Tags 2 Dies.  The snowflake is from the new Large Snowflake Dies.

If you tilt your head and squint your eyes, you'll see that I embossed snowflakes in white on the base.  Those are from the Fresh Snow set.



































Thanks for making it down here....I'd love for you to pop over to the Paper Smooches Blog.  I have another card that I wanted to share with you and would super duper love it if you left me some bloggie love over there♡
