Little Snowy Scene

I hope all my friends who celebrate Thanksgiving had a wonderful time!  We don't here in the uk but I know many of my blog friends do!

My Christmas card today is a little snowy scene.



I absolutely love this little snowy scene.  Its from a clear stamp set from HobbyArt called Woodland Glade.  The set is an absolute favourite of mine.  Its so useful as it has gorgeous trees, a fence, a steam and all sorts in it.  Just fabulous!  The stamping is done with Black Versafine and embossed with clear powder. I then cut it out with a Spellbinders label die along with a black one to mount it on. I used lots of 'dries white' glue sprinked with glitter for the snow - it is quite thick and really sparkles in real life and there is some on the roof of the little house too.  I inked round the top of the die to look like sky.  The sentiment is from Christmas Post clear set again from HobbyArt - another fabulous set, I coloured it with a Promarker and added a few stones for a bit of extra bling and it was done.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

HobbyArt - All Time Favourite (can be a stamp or set)  I love the versatility of this set.
RudolphDays Challenge - Anything goes as long as its Christmas.
That's Crafty - Black and white with a hint of colour.

It would be lovely if you could visit these blogs, they are all awesome!

Thank you so very much for visiting me, I am so grateful that you do!  Have a fabulous weekend. Christine xxx

Oh how beautiful Chris! I love how the house is nestled in the snow, it looks like it might be so warm and cozy in there. I also love the font of the sentiment, it is beautiful in the blue too. I can see why you love that stamp so much! Hugs, Anne xx

Wow, such a beautiful winter scene. I love the contrast of the black with the white, Chris, and all that lovely snow, particularly the snow on the roof of the house. A lovely card. I so admire your meticulousness and attention to detail. Jx
