Frosty Stampscape

For once all my Christmas stuff is done, so I can truly enjoy my time off. I do still have to wrap a few things and we will not be putting up the tree until the 22nd because I just don't want to fight with the dogs to stay away from it.
Recently I've been watching how to videos on the Stampscape site. They have been a great help. For this one I used the following Sedge Filler 251C, Pines and Rocks sm. 267E, Cabin 140E, Pine Tree196F, Meadow Lg 057G and the snowman and little girl is from Flourishes Joy Is In the Air.
I found a new to me tool for coloring with my ink pads on glossy paper by Tsukineko called the Fantastix. It has the smallest point on the brush tip so I can get in to the tiniest  places.  I used my TH inks to color the girl and part of the snowman then my stylus and Marvy inks to do the rest. My cardstock is from Amuse, purchased at the show in November. My tree and corner are EK Sucess punches and the banner is spellbinders.
Hope you enjoyed this one. I'm working on a few more but this week is really busy for me at work then I'm off for 10 days. Plenty of time to play and maybe finish more projects in my craft room if my hubby is home as well. We still have shelves to put up and more organizational things to build.
I hope all your holiday prep is going well.

What a lovely scene. I am so glad you shared it with us at Craft A Scene this month. Hope your dogs leave the tree alone - it is paper we have to worry about with our two dogs. xx Maggie
