Holiday hugs...


Yesterday I had fun mixing and matching stamps from the new Snowman Hugs and Snowman Competition sets from Hello Bluebird. When I saw the little bird in both sets I knew that I wanted to pair them together to create this happy winter scene. Cardinals are supposed to bring good luck in the new year so I colored these two in shades of red and black. I really like the idea that they are adding another frosty friend to keep their snowman company and they've been busy collecting all the odds and ends to make that happen. I even inked up the tree stamp from the new Autumn Days set and stamped it a few times in the background to make it look like they are in a meadow. To finish off the card I used the Gallery Frame #4 die on a piece of white card stock that I then airbrushed the edges to match the blue of the snow that I colored in the scene. I also die cut some snowflakes in various sizes using the Frosty Flakes and Paper Snowflakes die sets to jazz up the frame a bit, especially once I made them sparkle using a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen. :)
