Snowman Season Colour Challenge Card

Day 18 of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge is a Colour Challenge using Cherry Cobbler, Mint Macaron and Sahara Sand. A scarf and beanie in these colours seemed festive so I chose the Snowman Season stamp set for my card.

This snowman is such a happy chap and even with minimal colouring, he really creates a cheerful card. I added some Shimmery Crystal Effects for the snow. Once applied, this needs to be left to dry so this is best done at the end. The Sahara Sand matte label has been cut in half for layering.

The Gold detailed Mint Macaron paper is from the Ornate Garden DSP and it adds a lovely festive touch to this card. Some elements from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack in Cherry Cobbler bring this colour palette together. The Poppy Parade buttons were coloured with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to coordinate with the card.

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop – Winter Wonderland

Hi friends,

Thank you for visiting me today. I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Blind Bight, which is in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve been busy creating Christmas cards for classes and orders over the past few weeks and we have quite a few stamp sets that would fit the Winter Wonderland theme.

I chose the Let it Snow suite. The specialty Designer Series Paper in this suite is so much fun and I love the unusual colour combination. One side of the papers have glitter and really make for fun projects. 


Let it Snow suite, Snowman handmade card

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the gingham background. This allowed me to re-stamp if any of the checks hadn’t stamped well. Then I die cut the label shape. The snowman has been stamped in Tuxedo Black ink with the hat being punched directly from the Designer Series Paper. Some images on the DSP can be punched out, making it really easy to make a quick batch of cards.

The scarf is from the Playful Penguins stamp set which I fussy cut. I coloured the carrot and buttons with Pumpkin Pie and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Markers, adding Shimmery Crystal Effects on the buttons to give them a bit of gloss.

Joy of Sets October Blog Hop – Same Stamp 3 Ways

Hi Friends,

I’m very excited to be taking part for the first time in The Joy of Sets Blog Hop and it’s a big one to start off with! We are featuring one stamp set 3 ways. I had to put my thinking cap on for this as I wanted to coordinate my projects yet have them different. 

The Joy of Sets - One Stamp 3 Ways

I couldn’t go past the very cute Snowman Season stamp set with it’s 3 very cute snowmen, making it ideal for 3 cute projects.

Snowman Season Stamp Sets

All 3 projects coordinate with a common colour of Balmy Blue and a distessed look. My first card has been embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

Snowman Stamp set used 3 ways to create vintage Christmas projects

Then I added Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Early Espresso using sponged and sponge daubers over the embossing leaving sections of white. Balmy Blue ink was sponged on next. I have also added Embossing Paste for added texture. The Snowfall Accents Puff Paint is so much fun to work with. It’s runny when you apply it and then heat it up with a heat gun and it puffs up – magic! The sentiment is from the Wrapped in Plaid stamp set and has also been embossed and had the edges distressed with Sahara Sand ink.

Coordinated Christmas Products using Snowman Season Stamp set

I’ve incorporated the snowman punch to create this fun tag and used various elements from the Let it Snow Embellishment Kit to dress him up.

My next card uses the fun snow globe shaker domes. These create such interactive projects and are so much fun for the receiver as well. The little snowman has been stamped and fussy cut and set on a scene created with the Still Scenes Dies.
