SSDS12 - Snowman + One




Today's cards use a cute little snowman from Carolyn King's set 'Warm Winter Wishes' for GKD. Carolyn donates 100% of her proceeds for this set to the Alzheimer's Association, in memory of her Grandmother.

I started with a plain white card base and layered with some American Crafts Caramel with inked edges.
Three strips of Basic Grey dp came next - Figgy Pudding shiver and red ryder which is a double sided card, so I used both. I inked around two of these and sanded around the plain red.
The Snowman image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto white card and coloured with Copics. I used one of the word tiles to stamp Joy inside the heart using VersaMark followed by Martha Stewart glitter (not sure if you can see that in this photo).
After inking around the edge of a small piece of the caramel card I used foam tape to attach the image.
Some ribbon threaded behind the snowman and secured under the caramel card was next. To finish I added a punched snowflake and three clear gems.
This card is my entry for the Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays week 12 sketch challenge.

Here's the second card made with the same stamp set.
This time I used American Crafts rouge for the base card and to sit the stamped image on.
A piece of plain white card was embossed through the Cuttlebug and a piece of ribbon knotted at one end. The other end had a strip of the same dp from Basic Grey, shiver added.
The Snowman was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics before I stamped Joy in the centre of the heart (using a SU stamp-a-ma-jig!). I used foam tape to attach the image to the rouge card and using double sided tape added this to the card background.


It's been another horrible wet day in Sydney today, fingers crossed tomorrow will be better!
Thanks for dropping by, till next time.......
