Whimsical Wednesday's "Winter Wonderland" Challenge...

Hello my fellow crafters!
I'm back for another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge!
This Wednesday, our theme is "Winter Wonderland"! You can create anything you want as long as there is at least one snowflake and some glittery goodness added! :D

Here's a looksy at what I created for some inspiration!

It's a pincushion! I made the bottom part out of chipboard using the Sizzix Candy Cups die.  It was painted using a Ranger acrylic dabber in Denim and then coated once with Denim Dimensional Pearls for a bit of shimmery goodness. The sides are all decorated with a layered snowflake I went absolutely CRAZY for this past holiday season. I made TONS... seriously. :D The very front is decorated with a sentiment from Whimsical Designs "Snow Much Fun" stamp set. I thought I wouldn't get an opportunity to use this set anytime soon, and so I'm just sooo happy I did get to use it! :D For the trims, I just used some twisted white cord and chain from my holiday ribbon stash and some thin white satin ribbon on the bottom. I used a necklace I had gotten in a RAK from my friend Donna as a chain swag and added a charm and pearl to the end where the clasp is.

Here's a video I did on this project...

Anyways, that about wraps up my quick little project! I hope you can come check out what the other designs came up with for some more inspiration over at the Whimsical Designs blog, and join us in this * cool *, fun challenge! ;)

Oh! And before I forget... I just wanted to remind you all to stop by the Whimsical Designs blog Friday evening for our "Love is in the Air" February blog hop! Hope to see you there as well! ;)

Have a great day! And thanks for stopping by!
