Snowy Fun Christmas {Scrapy Land}

Hi, Blogging Friends! 
And a special welcome to new follower Barb Burgess.
It is time for a new ANYTHING GOES Scrapy Land Challenge!

The Challenge is open until November 16. 
The theme is ANYTHING GOES using any die manufacturer which Scrapy Land sells (electronic die cuts do not qualify)Scrapy Land sells over 40 brands of dies, including overseas products, and most are at a great discount
  plus free shipping over $45!

Since it never snows in Florida (well, except for that time 2 years ago and in 1977), I created this snowy wintry scene on paper using 3 Sue Wilson's beautiful dies and 1 Spellbinders die.

My card uses the following die cuts:

All the dies are from Scrapy Land:
  1. Creative Expressions Sue Wilson Basic Frames Set A California Collection CED1103
  2. Creative Expressions Sue Wilson Seville Spanish Collection CED1203
  3. Creative Expressions Sue Wilson Holly Accessory Kit - Festive Collection CED3014
  4. Spellbinders Elegant Labels Four (outside frame)

The Sue Wilson Die (in white) has been inked with Lavender Pearl just to show you the embossed detail. This die set comes with 4 gorgeously shaped dies.

The background colors are navy blue, but they appear black (for some reason) in the photos. The snowy background is a Cuttlebug EF colored with Brilliance Moonlight White ink.

The Sue Wilson Festive Collection with Holly Accessory Kit contains several sizes of leaves and berries:
The glitter is from Tulip Treasures and Sparkle N Sprinkle. The mica flakes are from Stampin' Up! The two frilly white layers are the same shade of white, but the camera must have picked up the reflection or dry glue color, yellowing the top layer slightly. In real life, they look the same, but one is sparkly.

Please join us at Scrapy Land Challenge this month! 
The prize is great, and badges are awarded as well! 
You may enter as many times as you like.

Donna, this blue beauty is just awesome. I LOVE snowmen and birds and this has both. You framed it so pretty and always have the most wonderful sparkle on your cards. Love the snowy background.
Winter is coming and so is Christmas and this puts one in the mood quickly. No snow since 1977??? That is quite a while. I can imagine the excitement down there if some happened to come to Florida. :-)

Lady E said...

Absoltely stunning card Donna! I like the dark colors :)

Sue said...

LOVE IT - Beautiful dies, snow, an adorable snowman colored in the most wonderful shade of blue, all my favorite things. The white dies and snow look awesome against that dark blue background. Awesome card.

Be still, my heart. I love Sue Wilson dies. How cool to find Scrappy Land sells them.

The card looks great.I love the glitter and mica you used. The scalloped base card is very cool and it does look navy blue on my screen. The die cut frame looks great and I love the snowy effect you created with the embossing folder.

Gigantic hug!

Leslie Miller said...

Those dies are beautiful! I love the way you've layered them and added all the luscious sparkle. You've created a very cool snowy scene with all the blue, and the movement in the scene makes it so alive and wonderful. You continue to amaze me, Donna!

Patricia St Martin said...

Just stunning!!!! Love the scene and all the sparkle, over lapping the frames looks great and adding the image in the center really makes it stand out.
Hugs, Pat

MaryH said...

Perfect for a winter or Christmas card...this little snowy is having too much fun. Of course I am loving all these fab dies, and especially the way you have layered them to highlight the focal that die as well. I'm collecting the SWilson dies as I can, but you've really showed this one to perfection. I also love that night sky and all the sparklies you've added. Makes me want to go find a snowy Christmas tree. TFS & Big hugs.
