CCC – December Blog Hop

Hello! It’s time for our last Collected Crafty Collabs hop. Theme for the month is Snowman/Snowpeople and the bonus theme is Sparkle.

You should have came from the fabulous Anna’s blog and I’ll tell you a little bit later about your next stop.

It has been so much fun finding all those ‘forgotten’ supplies and making something with them 🙂 I decided to use a stamp set that I haven’t used for a whole year! Avery Elle’s Snow Fun. I love this snowman so much that I had to use him. Just look at his face 🙂 I stamped him on watercolor paper and first I created the background. Kinda just playing with the watercolors and watching the water doing the magic. Once I was happy with the wintery scene, I colored the snowman. And once all was dry, I added white texture paste through falling snow stencil.

For the bonus sparkle theme I applied Nuvo Glacier paste in Frostbite around the edges of a white cardstock piece (same size as my card base). Once that was dry, I adhered the watercolored panel and then all onto my cardbase. I also added 3 glitter snowflakes and clear Wink of Stella to the white part of the snowman’s hat. Lastly, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the nose and the gift’s bow.

I managed to film my process:

So this is all from me. I hope your holidays are merry and bright and the next year better, healthier and happier!

And now please head over to see what lovely Val has created 🙂 After her is the sweet Marie!
