My project today was made with the new Chillin’ snowman and Tall Snowy Pine Tree


Chillin' Tall Snowy Pine Tree

I love making snowman cards and I couldn’t resist this little guy.  I thought he would be perfect on a card front with the Charlie Brown like Christmas tree in the background.  I stamped the tree on white cardstock with black versafine.  I sponged in a cloudy blue sky background and then applied green ink to the branches using a mini applicator.  I used a brown marker to color in the trunk. I applied Liquid Applique to the snowy spots on the tree, lightly tapped it  around with my finger to smooth out and heat embossed.

I stamped the snowman on white cardstock, colored his hat and scarf with markers and lightly watercolored on a light blue wash on his body.  I cut him so I could pop him up in front of the tree

I thought the red and green double matted frame was perfect to finish of this simple fun card. I hand cut a snowy layer and attached to the back of the frame.  I attached the frame over the scene with mounting tape and tucked the little snowman in behind the snow and popped him up on mounting tape for dimension.  I added the tiny star and bow for the finishing touch.  I think this would be a perfect card for a child’s winter birthday or Christmas card.

I sure hope you have enjoyed this week of design team projects.  We have all had such a wonderful time playing with all the new stamps.  We couldn’t even come close to showing off all of the new images as there are so many to chose from.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Another perfectly adorable scene Kittie … Love the framed look & the adorable little snowman. Don’t know why but they always make me smile. Also love how you colored the tree it almost looks alluminated. Thanks for making my day with this little cutie.
