Tulles-day… #37 Sassy Challenge

Nov9 First Big Snow blk

Our Sassy Cheryl’s Challenge today is to use Tulle or Ribbon…
get it..? Confused smile
Tulles-day… Winking smile

Last week, my Sassy Sistah Cathy, used this May Stamp girl for our “Fall Color” challenge. I liked her so much for Fall that I decided to use her for Winter!

This is the first BIG snow and she’s out enjoying the beauty of it! (like me! I LOVE snow!!)

Nov9 First Big Snow

I used this tutorial for a Simple Frame to construct this really simple (yet looks like you spent hours) card!

I started by stamping the trees from A Walk In The Woods on a 3x3 piece of cardstock, then sponged them and the sky with Distress inks. I added snowflakes with an Elmers Painty Pen. I tore pieces of scrap cs for the snow and just adhered the bottom edges so I could “fluff” up the tops of the drifts.

May Stamp is colored with Copics. Before plopping her in a snowdrift, I gave her some dimension by running my thumbnail on the backside of her dress then popped her up on dimensionals.

Thanks to my favorite daughter-in-law for letting me have some tulle to finish out the challenge! (actually she’s my only DIL…but still my favorite!)

I used an Epoxy sticker from Studio 8 and a Martha Stewart punch for the foliage. The base is a snowflake Cuttlebug folder. It’s also spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist.

Now, for more sassy fun

Fantastic colouring on your card. I love the way that you framed the image. The little cardinal in the corner is the perfect touch!
