Flurries of Happiness

Hi Crafty Friends,
Are you ready for a new challenge at Your Next Stamp? Challenge #132 theme is Make Your Own Background! I decided to make a snowy scene using three techniques to create my background. First, I used Distress Oxides and Copic Opaque Splatters, then I added white embossing paste with a stencil for texture and lastly, I cut up the YNS Snowflake Border Die and placed them on my card with red gems in the middle. I used the CUTEST little snowman set from Your Next Stamp called Flurry of Happiness. Details on how to enter below!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What brings you Flurries of Happiness?

  13. Awww, those little snowkids are so cute! One of them looks kind of like a jelly bean..and made me giggle. My little 1 year old grandson brings me flurries of happiness. He's one of the most engaging and happiest kids I've ever known and you can't help but smile around him.

  14. What a cute Winter scene and I love the background and the snowman family. The snowflakes are a nice decorative touch. What bring me flurries of happiness is when animals and people in distress get rescued.
