Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let it Snow….

It’s time for a new challenge at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog and this week it’s….

Anything Goes.

Our sponsors for this challenge are Shape EZ and Scrapper’s Delight.

I’m using a template from Shape EZ today called Snowflake Card and have created a Christmas ornament. This gorgeous image I am using is from Scrapper’s Delight and is called Winter Elf.


My image was printed onto X-Press It Blending card and coloured with my Copic Markers. I have then cut the image out on my Silhouette Cameo which allows me to have a nice even edge to my image. 

The colours I’ve used are: Skin –  E00, E000, E0000, R20; Hair - E49, E57, E55, E53, E51; Eyes - BG01, BG000; Clothes - BG18, BG15, BG13, BG11, RV14, RV13, RV11.

Here’s a close up of the image.


How gorgeous is this image!

The beautiful papers I’ve used are from the Candy Cane Lane Collection by Bo Bunny. Just love the colours in these.

I’ve added lots of Liquid Applique for all the ‘fluffy’ bits on this image and some Silver Dazzling Details for the ‘gem’ on the hat and dress.

I found some little glittered snowflakes in my stash which fit perfectly for some added bling and a little embellishing.

Here’s the back of the ornament.


The words were made on my computer. The original template has a hole in this section but I didn’t want that for my ornament so I filled the back with the sentiment and the front with a piece of coordinating paper.

One last photo.
