{Little Paper Shop}

Good morning everyone! Well it's a balmy -17 here in Wisconsin right now, how about where you are?? A little warmer I hope!

I have a HUGE announcement to make, one I've been waiting to share for a couple of weeks now -- so I'm unbelieveably excited that TODAY is the day! I was asked to join the Design Team for {Little Paper Shop} and I am now "official"!! I have been a fan of Julia's designs since she opened shop so I was honored to accept.

Today is also release day for the January sets over at LPS, so check out this blog post to see all the new goodies. I need my package to be here right NOW so I can get started!! *g*

Well in the meantime I thought I would share a card I made a couple of weeks ago. I won the Global set from Julia on the LPS blog back when it released and I used it on this card. I had SO much fun adding the snow and the Shimmerz -- all the little details. What a great set! Seriously, when she drew my name, I sold my old Stampin' Up! Snowglobe set that I had been hanging on to for YEARS because I knew I wouldn't need it anymore! This is a clear set - perfect placement every time; it's fabulous. Here's a close up of the main image detail:

I colored the image with Copic markers, then painted the sky with Sky Blue Shimmerz. Once that dried I used a Quickie Glue Pen to add chunky "snow" glitter on the house and ground. I took an edge distressor to all of the layers including the Swiss Dots panel. Put it all together with some Ski Slope DP & rope and called it done. The colors are Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip.

Thanks for stopping by today! Stay warm!

6 people made my day!:
