Paper Sweeties Challenge - January 2017 Anything Goes!

Happy New Year and welcome to the January Inspiration Challenge!  Use this photo as inspiration and create any type of project.  You can enter in the Paper Sweeties Inspiration Facebook Group  or link up from the Paper Sweeties Blog!  Easy Peasy and you could win a $25 gift certificate to spend in the Paper Sweeties Shop!

Here is how I was inspired:

I just love this inspiration photo... it's sooo sweet and the colors are soooo yummy!  So I started with some ink blending.  Then I splattered some water and when that was dry, I stamped the large and small snowflakes from the Holly Days stamp set in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.

Just LOVE this adorable snowman from the Holly Days stamp set.  I stamped him, colored him and used the matching Sweet Cuts to cut him out.  Then I die cut a couple trees using the Stitched Tags #2 and layered on all of my pieces.  Isn't that rainbow cute!?  Or is it a snowbow?... hmmmmmm.

Love this sweet sentiment from the Holly Jolly Holiday set.... it's perfect for my wintery card.  I stamped one more snowflake and cut it out with the matching Sweet Cuts and sprinkled around a few Winter Mix Sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you'll play along with us this month!  But for now, get some more inspiration... visit all of the Design Team blogs and see what they have for you today:
