 Hello everyone,

Sunday morning here and just had a wee play with the Steampunk splashback design, Ooo... quite nervous but it's coming together, 

So now we are up to Christmas # 11..

Another background I made with Distress sprays, using the new Lost Shadow, 
speckled egg, and Iced Spruce..

die cut the snowman, and last time I used him I said I added his arms,
 but no, his arms are already there..

Die cut the big tree again, Marianne Designs.

And iced it..

Glue and dip..

And ended up with an iced tree and a colourful and happy snowman..

This glitter cardstock was in my stash and the dies hate it, 
so, I hand cut a snow bank, definitely not hard..

added that..
and then slipped it inside of a cellophane bag and sealed the edges,
 three of them at least..

and filled it with glass bubbles, snowflakes and anything else I got my hands on that looks like snow.


All spread out like a blizzard..

Mmmm...this is the messiest clean up EVER!!
This stuff sticks to anything, static I think, so hard to get off..

Moving on, I'll get over it, 
I stamped and white embossed these sentiments onto forest green card stock
for a change, and backed them with some more of the glitter card..

Starting to glue down and lots of foam tape with this one..
gluing down on the shiny surface takes a wee while
to dry..

dimensional but not too thick..

Sentiments on and done!!..

Not many more to come, but you never know,
 once I started I find it hard to stop..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

I just love that happy snowman, brings a smile to my face, great goodies to go inside the shaker and like your snow on the tree!
I don't know if you all have Swiffer brand over there but I use that to clean up my glitter, embossing powders and such, it just cleans it all up nicely right into the bin!

I think you had some magic from Frostyʻs hat when you were making this gorgeous card.
