PKS Let's Face it Fridays Challenge #2

Challenge #2 for the Peachy Keen "Let's Face it Fridays" was to create a project with our muse in mind.  I'm sure many of you consider your children as your creative muse, as I do.  My beautiful daughter posed for these pictures last winter and I was happy to finally get around to getting these pictures on a scrapbook page. Below are the step by step instructions to make the little snow angel girl.  Want to win some Peachy Keen stamps?  Hop on over to the challenge site and play along with the challenge.  The prize for the winner of the challenge is "Winter Faces" PK-521 and the new "Snow Cuties" PK-501 stamp sets!  Be sure to also check out the other awesome projects by the DT members.



The sweet little snow angel girl was created using the build-a-bear die and some Stampin' Up! punches.  For the basics on creating a jointed figure, see my instructions HERE. For the face, I used the 1 1/4" Circle (pink pirouette) and stamped the PKS Everyday Character Faces (1" size).  I added white to the eyes with a uniball white gel pen and some blush to the cheeks with one of my new favorite tools, the cheek chalk brush. For the rest of the body, punch/die cut the following pieces:

Die cut 2 Build-a-Bear in baja breeze. (follow assembly instructions for jointed girl).
2 each of 3/4" Circle & 1/2" Circle for the arm and leg joints in baja breeze
Die cut feet only on the Build a Bear in black
Die cut hands only on the Build a Bear in real red
1 3/4" Circle in wild wasabi - HOOD
2 Tags (small) in wild wasabi - JACKET
Large Tag in wild wasabi (cut in half) - SLEEVES
25 small flowers from Itty Bitty Punch Pack - FUR TRIM

For jacket, cut the large tag in half and round out sharp corners to create jacket sleeves.  Glue sleeves onto arms.  Glue mittens onto hands. Attach arms to body with mini brads.  Attach boots to legs with dimensionals.   Attach legs to body with mini brads.

Glue small tags together to create jacket (lay on top of body to determine width).  Round out sharp corners at top. Cut a 1/4" wide strip for the bottom of the jacket.  Sponge edges of all wild wasabi pieces with garden green ink.  Attach jacket to body with dimensionals (position dimensionals so that it doesn't prevent the jointed arms from moving).

Glue 1 3/4" circle onto head.  Glue face onto hood.  Glue fur trim pieces onto hood and cuffs.  Punch small circles with crop-a-dile for buttons on jacket.
