I picked up this darling snow man set from Paper Smooches called Cool Dudes this week and created a simple little scene for him with the sketch.


I cut out the snowman using the Cool Dudes Icons dies and then stamped him in black hybrid ink, then colored him with Copic markers.  It's been a while since I've used my Copics!  It felt good to color again, even though I feel a bit rusty with them now.

I added the trees in the background using Fog card stock and stamped the snowflakes in white pigment ink.  Easy peasy!


Please stop by and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have created for you this week:

I'm mixing up some new and old today - I absolutely love this Jumbo Snowflake Die-namics from My Favorite Things, but alas... it's retired.  So sad - I know! I'm sorry to tease, I really am.


The patterned paper I used is from the Merry & Bright 6x6 paper pack from Carta Bella.  I used a solid sheet from the pack for the tilted background and then cut out a fishtail banner from a scrap of patterned paper.  I used silver glitter paper for the big snowflake and then stamped the sentiment in black ink.  Instead of cutting out teeny tiny foam dots to pop up the ampersand, I cut it out 5 times in white card stock and layered them together to make a chipboard look.


That's it for me today.  I do hope you will hop on over and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have for you today:



Thanks so much for stopping by!

A Jolly Hello {MFTWSC199}


Well, hello! Happy Monday - right? I had some time in the studio over the weekend - soccer is coming to an end, and then the Broncos played on Thursday night, so on Sunday I used the rest of the NFL as background noise while I stamped. I've been itching to play along in this week's sketch challenge from My Favorite Things.  You can see the sketch here.

I cut out the images from Christmas Cuteness with the matching Die-namics and then lightly colored the snowman with a few Copic markers, then paper pieced the little Christmas tree.  I added an assortment of rhinestones for the ornaments and colored the star up top.  I stamped the sentiment on a Sentiment Strips 2 Die-namics and then layered the images over the top.  Such a fun sketch!  I hope you'll play along too.


Here are the products I used on my card today:
