♥ Vintage Frosty ♥

Hi there my lovely friends! Are you ready for the Holidays yet? They will be here before we know it!! This week at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog we are getting a head start on those Christmas and Holiday Cards!!


As soon as I saw this cute Frosty the Snowman Cling Stamp by Prickley Pear, I knew I wanted to use it! Love the vintage Ad image. I simply stamped it in Black Ink and then colored in some of the image with some Tim Holtz Distress Markers. I added some white glitter to Frosty and I ran my paper distresser and some brown ink on the edges to make it look aged.


The papers I used are from the Merry Little Christmas 6x6 Paper Pad by Fancy Pants. I finished up the card with some Punched Snowflakes by Martha Stewart, satin ribbon, more glitter and some White Opal Liquid Pearls.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!






A BIG thank you again for all of your love and support during our trying time! All of your sweet comments, thoughts and prayers meant everything!! :)

hugs...

This is SO FABULOUS Melissa! The touch of light blue really gives it that wintery 'brrrr' feeling! Awesome creation (as always!). Hope you're feeling a bit better these days and are surrounded by such love and support!
