Hello crafty friends!

Today I’m sharing a card focusing on cold days and warm hearts, but first I have a confession to make. No worries, it’s not like I robbed a bank or something like that… even if I wanted to, I’d probably be arrested before the crime take place :). Let’s stick to cards. I’ve never purchased a snowman die because I thought it is something we can easily make using basic shape dies… until recently. I found this new to me Spanish brand – La Pareja Creativa – and there was this versatile die set with two adorable snowmen and respective caps, scarves and coats, very easy to transform and personalize… just fell in love right away.

Aren’t they the cutest thing? The snowflakes are from the same brand and the cute cup of tea is from another Spanish brand – Yoy. The sentiment is HA Coffee Cup Tags, and maybe you’ll be able to spot a bit of the Vintage Christmas Background from Waltzing Mouse.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

I’m also entering these challenges:

La Pareja Creativa January Challenge – using tags or colors.

    AHHHmazing, my friend. I just parked next to you at THD. Those little guys are seriously cute – with personality. And you BG is a dream. I cannot even begin to figure out what you’ve done here. But it is a perfect representation of both inspiration photos. Hope your 2017 is off to a good start.

    Well, since some of you are curious about the bg, I’ll leave you with a short step by step description… and I say short because it may look intricate, but is in fact a very simple bg.
    Step 1 – White heat emboss a bg stamp partially. Drop some black and blue Brushos until you’re happy with the result.
    Step 2 – Be unhappy with the result :).
    Step 3 – Go crazy splattering watercolors, acrylic paints and white gesso to cover up the areas you are not pleased with. Leave a bit of the embossed bg visible for extra texture and depth.
    That’s it! Hope you aren’t disappointed with the lack of fancy techniques.
