Let It Snow!

Hello Dies R Us Friends!
Darlene with you today, standing in for DT Member Deanna who is under the weather.
I don't know what the weather is in your neck of the woods, but here in Ohio it is SNOWING and I'm afraid this is just the beginning of it.  So with that in mind here's a card I created to share with you today!

 The dies from the Dies R Us Store that I used on today's creation are:

Penny Black  'In the Winter' - #51-173 
Die Versions 'Let It Snow' - DV-011

It is so much fun and so easy to create a little scene like this with all the amazing dies available in the Store.  Here's a quick overview of how I created the background to go with my fun 'scene' making dies.

First I started with a plain white card stock panel about 1/4" small than my card front.  Using a lighter and a darker shade of blue distress ink and large sponge daubers, I created the 'sky'.  Next I used a small paint brush and white paint to created the falling snow.

I then die cut TWO of the 'In The Winter' panels from scraps of white card stock.  I actually CUT the trees off the second die cut panel to create a snowy roadway for my truck.  A touch of glue & glamour dust gave me the winter sparkle I was looking for and the cardinals came from the Impression Obsession 'Birch Tree' die set.  

If it is snowing in your area ... please be safe on the highways!
Better yet just stay inside and play with your die cuts like I have today!  LOL

 Remember, each an every day of the month there's a new inspiration sample shared on the blog by this fabulous design team.  Please be sure to pop in regularly.
