Wednesday TAWS Be Inspired #43

Hey Everyone,
 The new TAWS Be Inspired challenge was announced last week and it is an awesome one.  Here is the inspiration photo.
I fell in love with the colors. At first I was a bit stumped because I didn't have any stamps with snowflakes on them but then I remembered about the FREEBIES section from TAWS.  There are free digi stamps available so I checked them out and found the cutest mitten and a sentiment and I knew I had to use them.  I wanted to do something a but different with them soooo my mind was racing with ideas and then it came to me--- my Silhouette.  I turned the mitten into mittens with the print and cut feature.  I brought up the mitten in my Silhouette and then made a mirror image of it to have a pair of mittens.  I then printed them and cut them out.  I colored them with my spectrum noir markers using the colors in the photo.  

Next, I took my sentiment Joy and turned it into a digi cut file-- I know I just LOVED this idea.  The script was so pretty and now I could cut it and add it to my project.  So here is how my card turned out using the digi stamps turned into print and cuts and digi cut files.


For my base of my card I started with my Core'dinations and embossed it with my Spellbinders embossing folder.  Next I took the same color cardstock and cut out a tag in my Silhouette.  I added the red topper to match my sentiment.  I pop dotted my mittens and added a touch of twine.  Next, I added my sentiment and to finish the tag off I added some natural twine and a cute clothespin.  I then pop dotted it onto my card and called it a day!  I love how it turned out.

Adorable, love how the red at the top of the tag looks like velvet! I *just* did something very similar with a mitten stamp I got! Great minds! :)
