CCMC179 – Snowman

Time for another Thursday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!  We invite you to play along!  This time it is a FUN Color Combination…very Christmasy colors of Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade and Basic Gray.



My card was inspired by a card that my daughter-in-law saw that she wanted to recreate for her Christmas cards this year.  I had one of these snowman laying out that I used as a prototype for her card.  Her colors are totally different…more tradtional snowman colors!  But, I thought he would be fun combined with these challenge colors!



I started with the base of Lucky Limeade and added a layer of Poppy Parade.  I made a template of the snowman from lightweight chipboard (the backing of our designer paper), then tore my Whisper White around the edges of the chipboard template.  I wrapped some Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon around his neck for a scarf and held it in place with a silver Mini Brad.  I added 1/8" Black Eyes and drew small circles for his mouth.  Yes, I deviated from the color by adding a Pumpkin Pie nose…just didn't look right in Poppy Parade…sorry!   I punched the small heart from Heart to Heart punch from Red Glimmer Paper and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.  I added him on to the Basic Gray background and stamped Whisper White Craft snowflakes in the background from the Serene Snowflakes stamp set.  I added M alphabet greeting from Occasions Alphabet set on Poppy Parade and punched with the Large Oval and layered on the Scallop Oval of Lucky Limeade.  It is popped up on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals!


So…there is my whimsical snowman for this year!  Hope you like him!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Thursday Challenge Team did over on Create with Connie and Mary.  Then take a break from your Christmas shopping and play along!  We love to see your creations.  AND…you will be entered in a drawing to win a FREE subscription to the Occasions 2012 Eition of Create with Connie and Mary!

Hi, My name is Joyce and I live in Delaware, Oh. I saw your snowman card made with the torn edges-so cute! Could you please let me know about your current class schedule? I’ve been stamping and card making for 11 years. I used to belong to a SU group, but our demo is no longer doing it, but our group still meets every month. Joyce Hall
