Paper Sweeties January 2017 Inspiration Challenge


Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and I hope all of you have a blessed 2017!

Welcome to the January 2017 Inspiration Challenge
 here at PAPER SWEETIES!
We hope you will continue to play with us each month! 
It is so much fun seeing all of your wonderful creations!



Here is our adorable Inspiration Board:



I was inspired by the snowmen's cute little beanies and scarves!



So I pulled out my PS HOLLY DAYS stamp set and matching Sweet Cuts to make my snowman. I colored him with Copic Markers and then added sone accents with Glossy Accents and Nuvo Crystal Drops.

 I was also inspired by the snow covered trees. I made my tree with the PS MERRY & BRIGHT Sweet Cuts. I die cut the tree with white card stock, which I colored with Twisted Citron Distress ink. Next I took a spatula and smeared some white embossing paste to make the snow. I just love the way this turned out. 



Hope you have been inspired by my snowman shaker card!
