Simon Says - Party Time

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too. This week's challenge will run for two weeks, so you have plenty of time to join in the fun.


and the theme for this week is...
PARTY TIME
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a White Christmas so I decided to go with a snowman/snowflake theme for my Boxing Day party invitations using Simon Says Snowflake Frame and Luxe Glitter Cardstock, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Twig and Stump and Alphanumeric Bold Thinlits.

I die-cut Simon Says Snowflake Frame from Distress Watercolor card and coloured with Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide ink using a mini round blending tool.
I die-cut the individual snowflakes from Simon Says Silver Luxe Glitter cardstock.
I fixed the snowflake frame to an A2 panel of Distress Watercolor card and fixed the die-cut snowflakes on top matched up with the  snowflakes around the frame. I added water splatters, dried and dabbed with a cloth to create the illusion of snow on the background.
I die-cut Stump from Distress Watercolor card and black cardstock and his arms from brown card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Twig and Stump Thinlits, assembled and added shading around him using Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide ink. I fixed silver twine across the snowflake frame and added letters die-cut from red cardstock using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Bold Thinlits.
I thought that the letters were too plain so I drew lines on red cardstock using a Sakura White Jelly Roll Pen, die-cut the letters again from this card and Distress Watercolor card edged with Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide ink and fixed on top of the original letters. I die-cut Stump's hat from the same card and his scarf from card coloured with Prize Ribbon and added his nose, die-cut from orange card.
I added extra snowflakes die-cut from Distress Watercolor card, masked off the sentiment from Simon's Says Let's Celebrate stamp set and stamped on the frame, inked with Simon Says Intense Black ink.
To finish, I trimmed the panel to 4" x 5.1/4", added shading to the edges with Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide ink using a mini round blending tool and matted on to an A2 white card blank.
