Stamps and Smiles - Preview Day 3

Hi Friends~

Welcome to Day 3 of the Stamps and Smiles Fall/Winter Release! Today we are showing you the Tis' the Season to be Jolly set! I adore Jolly the snowman; however Jolly is missing today! Can you help us find him? Please check the other DT members blogs, and when you find Jolly, head to the Stamps and Smiles blog, leave a comment with the answer and sign in with Mr. Linky! You can win this AMAZING set for helping us find our new friend!

No, he's not hiding here! Keep looking!

Now, on to my card for today. I decided to use Jolly and added a scarf and hat to keep her warm in the snow. The sentiment is also from the set! I wanted to make a winter card that didn't use the traditional winter/christmas colors and I love how this came out!

Jolly was colored with my Copics. Dp is the K & Company Peppermint Twist. I used my Spellbinders curved rectangles to make a tag for Jolly be popped up on. Border punch in the background is the Apron Lace Fiskars punch. Snowflakes are punched with MS punch and Marvy small snowflake. The bow was tied with my Bow Easy...this tool is a must have, so easy to use and you get a perfect bow everytime!

Here's a close up of Jolly. I used liquid applique on her hat for the fluffy look, and use the new polar white flower soft. Oh my word is the polar white flower soft beautiful IRL! It's the perfect look for snow!

On top of the Copic coloring, I have also used Twinkling H2O in oyster to add a soft shimmer to Jolly. Here's a close up to see the shimmer:
