Sandy Snowman in Winter

Hello friends,

I learned a really cool trick this month.  Snowman stamps have been limited.  Snowman are white and the paper is white....therefore stamps usually consist of outlines to create the snowman shape.  Recently, Stampin Up created a semi-solid image of a snowman.  It picks up the colored ink.  How cool?  This adds a whole new dimension to snowman.    At first my mind jumped to inking up the snowman in white and stamping it on Navy blue card stock.   I almost went that route, but was inspired to try something new.    A fellow stamper suggested to ink the snowman up in Sahara Sand ink ( light brown).  Then stamp it on scrap paper, then on white card stock.  This creates a soft brown.  I love the look it gave this card.

The cut the dove tails with my scissors out of the patterned paper.   Another fast, cute card for the holidays.

Copics:  None used.  Surprising I know!!
