Holiday Snowman

Hi there! Here is a card using Cammie's Warm Winter Wishes stamp set, along with a tree from Life Is Good.

To start, I cut a mask from a sticky note. I cut a wavy line and place the mask on the bottom of my cardstock. Then I sponged Memento Summer Sky ink.

Sponged Memento Danube Blue.

Sponged Vivid Inky Blue.

I moved the mask and sponged Memento Summer Sky to start making my snow drifts.

Then sponged Memento Danube Blue.

Moved the mask and sponged the same two colors again.

Cut another mask and sponged again.

Then I sponged a little Danube Blue around the bottom edges.

I used the mask again to stamp the tree with Versa Mark ink, then I heat embossed the tree with fine white embossing powder.

I stamped and embossed a second tree on the left and lower.

I stamped the snowman on another piece of cardstock and colored with Copics, starting with C1.

Added C3.

Added C5.

On the hat, I started with N7.

Added N5.

Added N3.

Filled in most of the way with N1, leaving just a small highlight.

Used G07 on the holly leaves and scarf stripes.

Used B26 in the segments of the scarf.

Filled in the segments with B21.

Started with R29 on the heart.

Added R27.

Added R24.

Filled in with R22.

Used YG07 on the carrot nose.

Stamped the sentiment on the heart.

I cut ou the image, cutting off the arms, and adhered it using Pop Dots. I drew back in the arms after adhering.

Layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and used a white card base.

My friend Sue and I drove over to Burney Falls yesterday and I snapped this photo with my phone. Aren't the falls beautiful?

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you have a great day!

Theresa, this is a beautiful snowman and love the layers you created in your bg...thanks for sharing how you do this. Loving the pics of your adventures, these are beautiful falls. Glad you are able to get out and enjoy nature and then share the beautiful sights with us on the other side of the country (as for me) or wherever they may be.
