My Favorite Things...MFTWSC368 & CTD476 - Thanks Snow Much

Hello stampin' friends! I can't believe this is the my first post of 2018...one of my new year's resolutions was to do a little more stamping, card-making and blogging, than I did last year. I'm going to have to step it up! Well, I'm glad I carved out a little crafty time today to play with this NEW Pure Innocence Stamp set Blowing Kisses. I love this little girl and really enjoyed making a PI card again...missed her.

I made my card with the fun sketch, MFTWSC368, that they have on MFT Challenge blog. I flipped the sketch to better accommodate by image.  

I also used the pretty color combo from the Color Throwdown 476 and was inspired by the inspirational photo to make a "snowy" card.

I used MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Chocolate Brown, Natural and Reverse Confetti Heavyweight Cardstock in Mist and Cloud White

I colored up the sweet NEW Pure Innocence girl, Blowing Kisses, with my Copics and paper pieced her dress with patterned paper. I thought instead of blowing kisses she could be blowing some snowflakes....perfect for my snowflake themed card. I used some chunky glass glitter adhered to the palms of her hands. I don't have the MFT Stitched Mod Rectangle STAX so I swapped it out for the MFT Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I made a frame with the set and layered it over the pretty snowflake patterned paper from the Simple Stories Winter Wonderland 6X6 paper pad.   
I stamped a sentiment from the retired MFT Pure Innocence stamp set, Thanks Snow Much, from my stash and heat embossed it with AC Zing White Embossing powder and layered the sentiment strip over the circle element cut with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and the Circle STAX Die-namics. Surprisingly, I kept this card rather clean and simple...I wasn't trying, it just kind of happened but I did add a few YNS white sparkly Gumdrops.

I finished off the inside of my card too...I stamped a shadow image with MFT Chocolate Brown Premium Dye Ink and I added another white embossed sentiment from the Pure Innocence Stamp set Warm Wishes.
Thanks SO much for stopping by and having a little look at my Pure Innocence Blowing Kisses Card for the MFTWSC268 and the Color Throwdown # 476.
