Chillin' With My Friends...Day Two of the October Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peeks!!

Good morning everybody! Welcome to another round of sneak peeks for the upcoming Kraftin' Kimmie release this Sunday. Today the Krafty Girls are sharing projects featuring the October stamps by Krafty Artist Emilie Goulet!

For my card today, I inked up the adorable "Chillin' With My Friends". I mentioned  yesterday that I love snowmen, so I've just been tickled pink to have the opportunity to ink up another snowy gent! I used some fun papers from My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas. And yes, I gave in to my latest obsession again by using that fantastic MFT Fancy Flourish Die. :)  I also tucked in a Stickle-coated punched snowflake and added a pearl coloured with my R59 Copic marker.


I love how the little birds have perched themselves all over this friendly snowman...and how much fun is that long scarf?! After colouring him with Copic markers, I highlighted areas of the snow with a thin coat of Stardust Stickles. The image was cut out  and matted with my circle Spellbinders.


Snow: BG70, B60, B91, C00, blender Scarf and Hat: B32, B34, B37, R22, R27, R46, R59, G05, G07, G28, C5, C7  Buttons: YG00, YG03, YG63, G99  Branches: E50, E25, E97, E99  Carrot: YR04, YR07, YR16, E08
