Allsorts Challenge 549: Snowflakes and/or Snowmen

This post includes affiliate links, meaning I may earn a small commission if you purchase something through the links, at no cost to you! Thank you so much for your support!

It's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge, Kath is hosting this week she picked the fun theme of Snowmen and/or Snowflakes. Hope you'll join us for a chance to win. This week our prize is comes from Clever Cut Stamps and you can win a beautiful stamp set.

Of course Penny Black's Snowy had to come out for this occasion, he's been stamped and  heat embossed on Bristol Vellum paper, then fussy cut. By the way, there is matching die set available for this stamp, I don't have it as I don't mind fussy cutting. 

I added some color to his scarf with Fired Brick Distress ink and used the mini tile stencil from TCW to add design to the scarf, using the same ink. The snowy sky was done the same way I've done this recent card and this recent card using Winsor & Newton Masking Fluid  along with Tumbled GlassBlueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks. The hills were die cut with a retired die, this die set would be a similar option. 

Sentiment is from the Penny Black set Holiday Snippets. This set comes with a bunch of tiny sentiments but does include two larger sentiments and some snowflakes. The snowflakes were die cut using a die set I won from Dare 2 B Artzy. It's no longer on their site but I'm sure most of you  have a snowflake die or punch, if not, then there are plenty of options available
