Addicted to CAS - Challenge #1!!!

Hello!

Today I am super-excited... we have the first challenge over at Addicted to CAS!!!

So, the challenge will be a fornightly challenge. Each fortnight there will be a new code word based on which we will be inspired to make a CAS card.

For this first challenge, the code word is snow.


It can be whatever you can think of... falling snow, landscapes with snow, snowflakes, snowmen, christmas... whatever snow means to you! Let your imagination run wild but keep it CAS!

This week our fantastic sponsor and Guest Designer is Joanna Munster from Inspired by Stamping...

Joanna is offering a $20 GIFT VOUCHER to the winner of this challenge -






And finally, the card that I made...

I wanted to make a snowman and realised that I didn't have any snowman stamp. At first I thought of buying one, but who can wait for a new stamp to arrive when the inspiration has already come? So I decided to make my own snowman - and also make him in the funny way that I wanted:

So the snowman came up from a combination of different Paper Smooches stamp sets:

The silhouette is from a Matryoshka doll stamp you can see below with the masking technique, to keep only the outline of the stamp.

For the hands I used the trunk of the tree... the moustache, xmas hat and the eyes are from two different stamp sets:


 


So look at your stamps in a different way and you will realise there are so many different things you can do with them!

As for the snow elements...
- Obviously the snowman... and of course I used my favourite white flock
- For the background I used a snowflake embossing folder
- The snow on which the snowman is standing is from white felt...




I hope you like it!

So why don't you come over at Addicted to CAS for more inspiration by the new design team, to celebrate with us the start of the new challenge blog and play along with us... We'll be waiting!

Oh, and don't forget the huge giveaway!!!!

Hugs,
Anastasia - Natasha

How clever of you to combine several stamp sets to come up with your little snowman. He's super cute Natasha. Love that you made him in felt also.
