Happy Little Stampers August Christmas Challenge

It is the beginning of the month and a new Christmas challenge at Happy Little Stampers.

The challenge is "anything goes" with an option of sequins.

This stamp set is from My Favorite Things.  I think it is a wonderful set for making Christmas cards for all the friends you have who have added sparkle and glitter to it.

I used a very light coating of distress oxide inks to color the background.  I cut the snowman out with my Scan n Cut.  It is glued directly to the card front.  The sentiment was stamped directly on the card front.  I got out my clear glitter embossing paste and a stencil and added little dots all around the card front.  I glued a snowflake sequin onto his hat.  Other sequins were glued on to the front of the card.

Glossy accents were added to the ornament and gift.

Here is a close up of our cute snowman.  He was colored with distress oxide inks.  (did I tell you I am obsessed with my distress oxide inks?)

Please join us at Happy Little Stampers for our August Christmas challenge.  Did I tell you one lucky recipient will receive a prize.

He is a cutie, Barb, and he looks wonderful standing there in the glittery snow.
