Happy Snowman Tutorial and Video

 Hello! I have another Let It Snow card to share with you today. I think I showed this at that release party a few weeks ago, but I want to show you the step out photos and I made a quick video.


Here is the video. 

To begin, cut white cardstock to 2 3/4 by 4 1/4 inches and sponge around the edges with Memento Danube Blue ink.

Stamp the branch, from Let It Snow, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Stamp the berries using Gina K Cherry Red ink.

Stamp the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

On another piece of white cardstock, stamp the snowman with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Begin coloring with E53 Copic marker.

Blend into the lighter areas with E51.

Use N7 on the darkest parts of the hat.

Add N5 to the hat and on the darker parts of the buttons.

Use N3 to fill in the hat and buttons.

For the tie and hat band, use BV13 and BV00.

For the carrot nose, use YR07 and YR02.

Use E31 to fill in the broom.

Use E37 on the broom handle and to shade the top. After coloring, cut out the image.

Layer a piece of In The Navy cardstock behind the sponged background and adhere to a Powder Blue card base (4 ¼ by 5 ½ inches). Use 3D Foam Squares to adhere the snowman.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is wonderful!

Hi Theresa. This is a gorgeous card. Thank you for your fabulous colouring pics and tutorials, thay are so helpful. I love the snowman, he is the best stamp I have seen (and I do look as I have a love of snowmen in any shape or form, my family swear I am addicted to them :)) and he will be added to the top of my "must have" list. Thanks again. Take care.

Great snowman, beautifully coloured. I love how stamping him separately and popping him up makes the scene come alive.
