Winter Wonderland

Good morning!

We have some new stamps at DRS Designs!!
The sentiment and mittens are actually one stanp but I cut it apart so that I could do this shaker snowglobe. 
It is the new release Raised Mittens Skip Winter Greeting 1141G .  I stamped the mittens in white and embossed them on a white 4 X 5 1/4" white base, then sponged color on top.  I made the shaker by cutting circles out of two pieces of Fun Foam, stacked them and glued them to the white base leaving my stamped mittens in the cut out to show, added "snow" then covered with acetate. 
The top was made by stamping the Snow Globe 368M first, masking it then used the Open Plaid 631P to make my cute pink plaid design.  I cut a circle a bit smaller than my Snow Globe and inside circles to allow the inside design to show and when I glued it to the base the circle cut out was over the acetate. I cut a Snowflake border (Martha Stewart) from a scrap of white and added some Baker's Twine for my border.
Next I stamped the sentiment part of the Mittens Raised stamp in black then matted with blue and put it on my card top.

I stamped the snowman and masked him then stamped snowflakes in white and heat embossed.  I sponged color on and colored my snowman then added a torn white card stock snowy ground at the bottom. I then added some glitter to the ground and snowman.  Next I stamped the greeting in black and colored in the swirls, added glitter and die cut with a stitched circle die (My Favorite Things).  I added a scalloped circle mat (Spellbinders) from blue/turquoise and popped up the greeting on the card with foam tape.  Wrapped a sheer ribbon on the left side and made a bow to place on top of the ribbon.  I glued my card to a folded white card and that's it.

I did get to spend Christmas in the snow since we went to my sister's house who lives a bit higher up than we do but we still have not had snow at our house this year and I'm sure hoping for some.  We usually get snow 2 or 3 times during the winter.  My hubby is a wonderful snowman builder and I know he's itching to make a new creation for this year!
Here he is (on top of a ladder) creating the hat and face of this snowman.  The one button you can see is a cookie, heehee!

Thanks for visiting today!

What fun cards, Robin. Love the shaker card with your pink plaid and fun way to use the new image. Your second card is adorable with that super snowman and fun details and colors. The picture of your husband making a snowman with a pink cookie is the best! Super fun post. Hugz
