Holiday Lineup


I decided to play with The Paper Players this week with their oh so fun Snowman theme challenge #23. And I thought there was another challenge out there All That Glitters, but maybe I just dreamt that one?! But anywho, I decided to combine it with my snowmen, dream or no dream! I was lucky enough to have just borrowed the Holiday Lineup set from my SIL (thanks Lizzie) and decided to put it to use with those cute snowmen. If you follow my blog, you know that I enjoy line images to color, so I couldn't wait to play with this set. Having so much fun with the snowmen, I decided to use each image, so make sure to scroll down to see :)

* Standard Whisper White cardbase

* Snowmen, from Holiday Lineup, inked in Basic Gray and stamped onto Whisper White.

* Colored in my images with various SU Markers TIP: Kreate darker hues of the same color by coloring over the same area multiple times. If you like matchy matchy, no need to stress over finding coordinating colors - use the same color, just make it darker!!

* Lightly penciled in a frame around the image. Followed my line with Crystal Effects and added White Chucky Glitter to 'frame' my cute little snowmen.

* A little more sparkle was added to the hat pom pom with Dazzling Diamonds.

* Finished it off with a Baja Breeze sentiment from Many Merry Messages.


And here are Santas Elves and Reindeer using the same design













Simple colored in images with lots of white space and a 'frame' with pizazz ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by for a little dose of me! So what did you think of my Holiday Lineup? I'd love to know what ya think, so please leave me a comment and let me know, K? Any questions, I am always just a click away!
