Anything Goes at All Dressed Up...


Hello Lovely Blogging Buddies...

Hope all is good in your world... and that you're all on the run up to the big man coming down the chimney...  No decs up in our house yet I'm afraid tho, as we have about 7 boxes of decs to get out of the loft, it has to be on a day when nothing else is planned!  It'll be soon.. I promise.  I'm afraid we do go a bit over the top when it comes to Christmas ornaments etc..  even though there are no kiddies about!  I think it's just me that's the big kid!!

Right..  onto my card... Today it's the turn of All Dressed Up for my DT card.. we have a lovely new challenge commencing today, and as always it's an Anything Goes.  

I chose to use one of my favourite snowman images - 'It's Snowing'. 
No matter how I photographed it straight on, I couldn't get the camera to pick up the glitter properly or the glossy accents, so eventually I decided to lay it down and take another pic... and it worked!



Card Recipe:
Image - It's Snowing from All Dressed Up
Colouring: Copics
Blues - B000, BG72, BG10
Shading in Snowman - N0, N2, N4
Nose: YR24, YR14
Shading around image: C0, C1, B000
Robin: W3, W5, R35, R46
Die: Spellbinders Nestie Square
Punch: Stampin Up Scalloped Border
Glitter, Ribbon and Glossy Accents


Before I printed the image out, I opened it up in Paint.Net to remove the wording so I had a smaller image to diecut.

Don't forget that to join in our challenge, you must use an All Dressed Up image... but as there are so many gorgeous ones available and even freebies too, it's not that difficult!  You have two weeks to enter - and we're looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..

  18. It's been a while since you posted this. Your card is adorable. You color very well. Actually I envy it. I can't color at all. Anyway I really love the pattern paper you used. Im making a christmas scrapbook
    and that paper would be perfect for a layout i'm working on Do you remember who made it. I'm hoping it's digital and still available. I hope you will get this comment. And would appreciate your reply.

    1. Hi Carol. Unfortunately it's not digital. . Its a 12 x 12 paper by Craft Creations called Snowmen on Ice Blue. It's a few years old now so possibly you won't be able to get it.
