Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set bundle to create a Christmas card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  We’ve got a color challenge this week and here is what I created for it.

Here are the colors that we’re using this week:

My card design was inspired by The Paper Players PP465.  I saw as I was typing this up and linking to the challenge blog that I pretty much CASE’d the card Joanne Jones made without even realizing it. 🙂  Here is a link to her project.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Snowman Season photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink on a panel from the Let It Snow Specialty DSP pack.  I adhered the DSP panel to a Coastal Cabana card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered a wide band of Let It Snow DSP to a wide band of Real Red card stock and then the the card front with SNAIL.

I cut another panel of the Let It Snow DSP with the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to a panel of Shaded Spruce card stock with SNAIL and then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the snowman, arms and hat images from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and colored them with Dark Pool Party, Light and Dark Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I punched the snowman pieces out with the Snowman Builder Punch and adhered them together with Glue Dots and then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added one of the Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots and two of the Shaded Spruce Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels pack to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the  Snowman Season stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then adhered a strip of the Let It Snow DSP to finish the inside of the card.

  1. Adorable, Amy! The snowman paper is just too cute. Your card is so spot on with the sketch. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Thank you for playing in my challenge at The Paper Players this week!

  2. Fabulous take on the sketch, Amy. I love the papers and the little glimmer dots are the perfect finishing touch. So glad you joined us at the Players this week

  3. I was commenting on your card this week I remembered that I had seen your card in the gallery and clean forgot to comment – oops! I love that you and I were similarly inspired by Ann’s sketch – it’s not just me that happens to then! Of course, it goes without saying I love everything about your fun snowman card and we appreciate your continued support for the Paper Players challenge!
