Warm Heart, Cold…Snowmen?

I know it’s not ‘snowman’ time, but I couldn’t resist playing with the new stamp set called “Spirited Snowmen.”  Prior to this, I didn’t own a snowman set, so it was a delight to finally see one in the new catalog!  Here’s my first ever card!

Spirited Snowmen - Wood Textures Designer Series Paper - Under the Mistletoe - Linen Thread - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

Is that snowman not the CUTEST thing you’ve ever seen?  Here’s the stamp set:

Spirited Snowmen Stamp Set

To create this card, I started with a card base of Whisper White Thick card stock.  I cut a panel from the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Papers cut to 2 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ inches, and adhered that to the base.

I stamped the snowman image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap of Whisper White Thick cardstock and colored it with Old Olive, Crumb Cake, and Real Red Stampin’ Blends.  Fun, fun!  From there, I used my Big Shot to cut Mr. Snowman out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies.  I used my Aqua Painter and dipped the brush into the cap of my Winter White Shimmer Paint and painted a little glimmery shadow on the snowman and topped it off with three Basic Rhinestones.

Finally, I stamped the little holly stamp on a scratch piece of Whisper White cardstock, colored it and cut it out with my snips.  I attached it with a glue dot and then tied three strands of Linen Thread together to adorn the greenery, attached with a glue dot as well.

That was it!  It was pure joy to make this card, and I have another one to show you tomorrow!  Shop with me below to get the supplies to make this darling card — you’ll have endless hours of fun creating your snowmen projects.
