Let it snow * Let it snow * Let it snow

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

LOL! You thought I meant winter didn't you! Nope! It's time for a new release from Taylored Expressions! I am SO excited about this release, not just because they are so adorable, but because I LOVE to make holiday cards and the ideas are endless with the stamps in these sets.

I created this card using the Home Sweet Home set along with the Key Ingredient kit that Taylor has available in her store. What could possibly be easier than having everything you need to make adorable holiday cards all in one kit!?!



I stamped and embossed the Let it Snow sentiment 3 times with white embossing powder. I did the same with the snowflakes and then added a drop of Crystal Stickles in the center of each one.

The snowman cuppie is sitting on a pile of *glitter snow*. His scarf and the band of his hat are paper pieced and the rest is colored with Copic markers.

The cool ribbon is also from the Key Ingredient kit. Don't you just love the swirls in it?

My pics have a little bit of blue tint to them. That's what happens when you live in two places and do the best you can with what you have. LOL! Maybe we can all just think it looks frosty cold! :o)

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Baker's Dozen Design Team has created! OMGOSH they are all FABULOUS!!! You'll find the links to their blogs over on the side =>

Supplies
Stamps: Home Sweet Home (Taylored Expressions)
Paper, cardstock, ribbon (Key Ingredients by Taylored Expressions)
Ink: Memento, Copic markers
