Todays TTSTV Challenge is brought to us by Thrifty Stamper!
It is make your own snow. It is made by shredding styrofoam. I used 
the type of styrofoam that is compressed beads and trust me you will
 make lots of beads but most of them will be stuck on you instead 
of the card. I did try the dryer sheets to help cut down on the
 stickiness but honestly it didnt seems to be to effective.
I shredded mine in a large plastic bag and it did help to keep 
it contained.Once you get them on the card they do make some cool 
snow.I was determined to use the beautiful cardinal but the snow
 doesnt show very well. I should have used the image so the snow 
would shown on the ground cutting my image out with the
Spellbinder Scalloped circle I colored it and then applied the 
"snow" with glue, and matted on the plaid.
The little tabs were cut out of a SU Christmas print and stitched on.
The little red strip was the negative left from a Spellbinder
border die.The sentiment was cut with a SU punch and
foam dotted on. You will find my
 Christmas Cardinal  image at MFP a Heinrich Co.


  1. Oh my this is so stunning Davi!! I love the colors and the snow effect on your cardinal!! WOW!
