Time for another great sketch challenge from the Operators of Stamping 411. AND, I have a sad announcement to make. I've come to a hard decision to give up my Stamping 411 Design Operator position. I've really enjoyed working with the other operators on Stamping 411…a truly class act of women with enormous talent! Don't worry, I'll still be playing along with the challenges as much as I can, but just not as a designer. I know I'll miss it, but also know that it is the best thing for me right now! I wish the team the BEST!
But…on to my last card as a Stamping 411 Operator! I LOVE this new set from Stampin' Up!, Snow Much Fun! I flipped the direction of the sketch only because my snowman was facing the other way.
Last year my Christmas cards were done in these colors, so I thought I'd recreate them for this card! I started with a base of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, then layered on Whisper White. I added another layer of Crumb Cake that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder. I stamped the snowman on Crumb Cake cardstock with Black Stazon. Then I used some White Craft Ink Refill and my AquaPainter to color him a whitewash color. I added Basic Gray and Cherry Cobbler to his scarf, hat and boots. That was layered onto more Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler Cardstocks.
I used the Tasteful Trim XL Die to make the "snow" along the bottom and stamped the greeting in Black Stazon. It is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals on the front of the card. I added Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon tied across the front. And I also added a trio of White Naturals Designer Buttons with Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine tied inside for my "snowballs". lol!
I had SO much fun making this card for Stamping 411! I hope you enjoy it, too! Make sure to check out what the rest of the Design Operators did this week!
