Every Monday a new card or project with a new idea.

Can you say cold!  I can't remember when I have stayed in for such long periods of
time, but it has been good for creating!  So, because it has been so cold and snowy, I
thought I would share a snowman stamp I bought and didn't get inked up yet.
I wanted to mix a couple of unusual colors and change up the design a little.  Hope you like it.

Today I am sharing a snowman set from Stampendous and a
little different layout.

This is a snowman set from Stampendous (details below)
that comes with a tree, a word stamp and the little snowflake I used on the front of the card.

A double row of snowflakes

The finished card front.
I combined lime green with Navy blue and white.

The inside of the card.

Card Recipe
Stamp Set - Stampendous-Jumbo Top Hat Snowman (CRS5056)
Inside Sentiment - Whipper Snapper Designs (IW 860)
Designer Paper - Bazzill Basics Huckleberry Pie 6x6 Pad
White embossing powder for inside sentiment and snowflakes
on the front of the card.
Circle punch for snowflakes.
Cuttlebug embossing folder swiss dots
WOW Embossing Powder - Neutral Ultra Shimmer (WS02R)
Snowflake punch along inside
Marvey circle punches for inside
Stampendous - Frantage Chunky White Embossing Enamel (FREG021)
Colored with Copic Markers

The squares on the front were cut at 1 1/2x1 1/2 inches.  The polka dot designer paper
was trimmed on each edge with decorative scissors (postage stamp). A lime green mat
and the embossed white piece were cut to fit the remaining space on the 5x7 inch card.
Snowflakes were stamped with Versamark, then embossed with white embossing powder
and using a small circle punch punched out and popped up on the squares.
After coloring the snowman, I used a small sponge applicator to apply Versamark to
his face and body and embossed with the WOW embossing powder for sparkle.
I cut him out, and sprinkled some Frantage Chunky White embossing enamel on
him and heated from underneath, so that it doesn't just blow off when you use the heat gun.
Glued a small piece of fluffy feather to the birds tail on his hat.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.

OMG Sue, I LOVE this card. He is one of the cutest snowmen I've ever seen with that birds nest on his hat. The Fran-tage is perfectly distributed on him. Love the other stamps you added. That is one of my favorite color combos, lime and blue. I have a coat in those colors and get a lot of compliments on the colors. The sentiment is precious. A total winner here. Please pass along kisses to my friend. Enjoy the week, stay warm if you can. It's going to be bitter here again this week too. Brrr!

Man oh Man I love those blues and greens. Snowmen melt my heart. Add a little birdie and I turn to mush. Love it, Sue.
