Most Adorable Snowmen


It’s time for a new challenge over at ABC Challenges.

Our challenge for you today is ‘Y is for Yuletide’ so we want to see lots of those fabulous Christmas projects I’m sure we are all working on.

Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter.


I’m using one of the new Christmas images from The Paper Shelter today and this one is called The Most Adorable Snowmen.


I’ve printed my image onto X-Press It Blending card and coloured with Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: BG000. BG0000, BG11, BG10, R02, R01, R000, YR14, YR12, YR000, YR0000, E25, E23, E21.

Here’s a closer look at the image.


I’ve added some Liquid Applique to the hats and some True Snow to the ground.

The gorgeous papers are from the Candy Cane Lane Collection from Bo Bunny. I’m so loving these colours.

My base card and layers are XXL Square Frames Filly #6 dies from Go Kreate. The pretty snowflakes are all Joy Craft dies from Noor Design. I’ve added lots of sparkle to my snowflakes and also the the buttons on the larger snowman.


Here’s one last photo.
