Snowman - New release

This is a scheduled post to show you one of the new images you can find in the Bugaboo store today.

I colored the image with Promarkers in shades of grey.

I wanted to use some of my more neglected dies, here are two shapes which I combined together to make a frame. I always admire Donna's (Creative Smiles) ability to use her dies in so many creative ways. I know I didn't do a revolutionary thing here with my dies, but I was inspired by Donna's work when making this silver frame and wanted to share that with you.

I added a doily underneath it and attached it all to a fully covered card front with a DP from Bo Bunny.

A piece of ribbon and string for the metal charm with the Christmas sentiment and a die cut snowflake in the opposite corner.

The doily peeping out from under the frame is a lovely idea the ribbon and string a great finishing touch beautiful colourway too.

A lovely card Pia, love the blue and silver combo. Must admit I've got this die and haven't used it for a while, makes a great frame too.

A fabulous Christmas card Pia, such a fun snowman and beautiful frame - your dies combine perfectly.

Donna Ellis said...

Whoa! I love that amazing sparkly, silvery, winter-festival-feel in your delightful card, Pia! The BoBunny background is amazing, and the use of your die cuts is gorgeous! The background colors remind me of a snowy dark night in the northern countries during winter - silvery, yet darkest blue! Love your little ribbon doo-dad in the corner. What a surprise to see my name in your post! Thank you, Pia, for the "shout out" - I appreciate it! An unexpected blessing today, especially since I'm always smitten by your artwork! Thank you! hugs, de

I love Donna's work at Creative Smiles also. I'm one of her biggest fans. Your layering of the frame looks remarkable, as does your card.

This is gorgeous Pia! I love the image and it is framed beautifully by that lovely silver frame :-) The background paper and embellishments all co-ordinate brilliantly together. Super card!

I think I recognise this Bo Bunny PP- I have very little of the 6 x 6 pad left ( I think it is the one with wooden ski's...?) Anyway, this is fabulously frosty.

Hope you are enjoying your blog free holiday. I think we all need to have a little 'blog & card free time' - I've enjoyed mine. Even though some of it was due to health issues, it still is good to not have it become a 'chore', but rather something I enjoy. Only problem is Mo-Jo goes on holiday too! I love this cute Snowy, and the silver scroll frame adds to the iciness of the scene. Also like the navy & silver design pattern behind his frosty self. It's a lovely Christmas card, with the silver snowflake embellie. Enjoy the rest of your holiday. TFS & have a great upcoming week. Hugs

Donna said...

Stunning card, like how you framed this adorable snowman!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Oh, cute, Pia! I love the adorable new Bugaboo snowman! Your monochrome colouring is beautiful! Hope you had a fantastic break and I look forward to seeing your creations when you start regular blogging again!

Kim Heggins said...

Just so your sweet snowman hanging out with that adorable little bird sitting on his head, simply fabulous!

Mervi said...

Fabulous card, elegant and beautiful.
Hope you enjoyed your holiday and sun;-))m

Way to go, using the dies to create a frame... I have never thought to do that! Talk about doubling your stash! This is very "Pia" to me... I'd be able to spot it in a large group! Such a well-balanced card with just the right accents (twine + ribbon, bold purple background, great image!)
