Winter Wonderland

Hello, Alicia  creating for you today.  I had so much fun with my latest delivery from Dies R Us!  I was so excited to play with the Avery Elle Pierced Cloud dies and the Poppystamps' Stitched Hills dies in particular.  At first I had the mind set that clouds were for spring cards, but then I started to broaden my horizons.  I think the crisp clouds with a touch of glitter pen are perfect "snow" clouds.



I popped up the individual clouds on top of the border of clouds keeping the pattern in place for a clean effect.  I gave most of the elements at least a spot of Wink of Stella clear.  It was perfect to replicate glistening snow.  I colored the remainder of my image with various alcohol markers.  I fussy cut the snowman with his feathered friend and popped them up as well.  He looks perfect sitting on the stitched hill.  I  just loved pierced and stitched details on dies!! There's plenty to be found at Dies R Us.
