Snowman Challenge at DoubleClick Skittles

 Welcome to Week 2 of the newest challenge at DoubleClick Skittles!

Challenge #37 - Use a Snowman

Dec. 9 - Dec. 22

For this project, I'm using the new Holiday Traditions bubble embellishments. You can purchase both of the new releases, Holiday Traditions and Frosty Kisses, right here:

I like to upcycle, particularly since I seem to hold on to EVERYTHING!  So, I grabbed this medium size kraft bag that I had received in a craft order awhile back and embossed with my Cuttlebug and Tim Holtz Merry Christmas embossing folder.  I inked the raised sentiment with my Hero Arts Green ombre ink, then used a sponge dabber for white chalk ink snowballs.

This cute snowman is a sticker from K&Company and I adhered it to white cardstock and fussy cut it, so I could pop it out with foam squares and it would hold it's shape better.  I placed my Rudolph Red Skittles bubble embellishment on old Frosty's scarf.

I added an olive green faux burlap ribbon border using my May Arts Ribbon, then added a strip of DCWV cardstock which coordinated nicely with my Holiday Traditions Skittles.  Did you know that all the new newest Skittles have sparkle?  Yup.  They're kind of awesome, that way.  I usually use clear glue to adhere my Skittles but you can always use adhesive dots as well.  Sometimes, I add a touch of Stickles glitter glue with my drop of clear glue, for that extra wow factor. 

 The new Holiday colors for the 2015 year!!
