Inspired By Stamping Sneak Peeks - Build A Snowman

Sneak Peek parties are always fun, and the party continues for the September releases at Inspired By Stamping.  Today we highlight Build A Snowman.  He's so stinkin' cute!


On a white card base, I sponged on a blue sky, and created snowy hills from more white cardstock and glitter, of course.  A sentiment from Festive Frames was stamped on the snow.


On a scrap of white cardstock, I stamped the snow man's body, used a Copic marker to create shadows, and trimmed it out.  On the card base, I stamped his twig arms with brown ink.  The hat was stamped in pear green, trimmed, and a slit made in the cuff so I could fit it onto his head.  There's glitter on the hat and the snow guy, too.  I created the face and added a sweet heart to his torso.


Squeak!  I felt pretty darned creative about this branch, which is actually snowman arms joined together.  The "berries" are created with a stamp that could also be used as a snowman nose, or buttons.  The little sign is part of the set, too.


See what kind of snowmen the rest of the team created, too:

Joanna - Grace - Leah - Pam - Rose - Shea - Vicki - Rebecca

Total süß, Colleen,
ich mache ja auch schon seit Tagen Weihnachts-Karten.
Und im Sommer macht es mir am meisten Spaß, wenn es heiß ist.
Leider haben wir heute Monsun :-(

Liebe Grüße xx
