Belles 'n Whistles Snowbaby Collection Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Belles 'n Whistles "Snowbaby Collection" Release Blog Hop. If you came from Andrea's blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can go to the Belles 'n Whistles Blog and start the hop there. Remember to leave comments along the way, each of the design team members will pick a random winner to receive the stamps they featured on their blogs today!


Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the fact that two of the BnW DT members has been diagnosed with breast cancer this past year, the sweet and caring Summer (owner) decided to make this Snowbaby collection a collection for a cause. She will be donating 10% of the proceeds from this collection to Breast Cancer Research in Jacque and Elise's honor. You can see this beautiful collection here. Pre-order of this new collection starts today and the shipping starts October 29th.


I am featuring the lovely Snowball Snowbaby for the release. Isn't she darling? It looks like she is thinking about who is her next "victim." =) She grows on me!


After coloring her, I cut her out using a oval die then inked the image with tumbled glass while the paper was still in the die. I then masked her and stamped the snowflakes around her using the same ink.


I paired her with the pretty paper from Cosmo Cricket's Mitten Weather collection. I also stamped the Music Background with VersaMark on the card base. The sentiment is from this set and the frame was inked with tumbled glass when the paper was still in the die.

It's time to send you to Yenni's blog! Don't forget to leave a comment here for a chance to win this cutie! Remember to leave comments on each of the blogs on the hop then go back to the Belles 'n Whistles Blog and leave a comment told them that you have done so. One randomly chosen winner from the Belles 'n Whistles Blog will receive this brand new set of stamps! You have until October 29th at 11:59 PM PST for the chance to win.

Have fun hopping and good luck! =)

A beautiful card. She sure looks concentrated doesn´t she.
My favourite in this card is the combination of her making the snowball and the seniment "Sending warm wishes" - that, my friend is a true sense of humor. =)
