Snowman Love - Stampin' Up! Snowman Season

  I'm starting to get rolling on my Christmas cards and the Snowman Season stamp set continues to offer a lot of inspiration.

  I used the current (for a few more hours) Freshly Made Sketches challenge for the layout.  It's not quite as tight as the sketch but I was definitely inspired by it.  I was set on having these snowflakes so I had to stretch the cluster of the sketch a bit.

  The card base is Whisper White thick, then a layer of Let it Snow Specialty DSP backed by a layer of Basic Black.

  The snow man and hat are stamped in Memento Black and then I added a little bit of color with Stampin' Blends.

  The snowflakes are cut with the the Seasonal Layers dies.  This set has been around for a while and might be overlooked for newer products but it has a wonderful mix of dies for all seasons.  The snowflakes are especially pretty and work well with other winter themed stamp sets.  I used the retired white flocked paper that I still had quite a bit leftover.  I think it sold out so fast I didn't get to use it in class.   Might want to bring that one back Stampin' Up!!

  The sentiment is stamped and embossed on Shaded Spruce with the Shimmer White embossing powder.  My pup Aggie snuffled it right before I took the photo so the smudge on the sentiment banner is from that.  I guess it's some extra love for whomever receives this card!

  I'm off to get my to do list checked off so I can stamp some more!  Have a great Monday!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
