A Snowman Obsession?

I may very well be under the spell of the snowmen from the new “Spirited Snowmen” stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Spirited Snowman Tranquil Tide 1 - Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper - Up North Stampin' - Mary Hanson

Thank you to fellow stamper Tina Wandell for the inspiration!  This card starts with a base of Tranquil Tide card stock.  Upon that, I built a layer using a panel of Whisper White cardstock embossed using the Softly Falling Textured Embossing Folder, 4 1/8″ X 2 1/2′.  I also used a panel measuring 4 1/8″ X 3 3/8″.  Overlap them a little in the middle and adhere.  I wrapped a piece of Tranquil Tide ribbon around to the back and adhered with SNAIL.  I tied a small bow and attached it with a glue dot.

From there, I stamped the cute little skater guy with Memento Ink onto Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I used an Aqua Painter to shade in the snowman with Tranquil Tide, Cherry Cobbler, and Gray Granite.  You can do whatever you’d like — that’s the fun of coloring with the Aqua Painters — no right or wrong, just fun!

I used the Stitched Shape Framelits Dies and my Big Shot to cut out the snowman.  I adhered with a few Dimensionals.  I stamped a sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set onto a scrap of Whisper White and cut out using the Banner Triple Punch to finish off the two ends.  I adhered that with Dimensionals as well.  All done!  Click on any of the products below to shop online with me!
