Merry Monday #91 - Snowman or Snowpeople

Good morning friends.  Another snowy day here in West Michigan, so I think my card for today is VERY appropriate!  The latest Merry Monday challenge is to use a snowman (or snowpeople) on your card, and that was certainly no problem for me as a snowman lover! :0)  Last week when I was searching for a certain stamp (which I never did find!!) and found "Riley", I also found the stamp that I'm using on todays card.  It was one of the first stamps I ever bought and hasn't seen ink in ages and ages!  It's by Inky Antics and I'd forgotten how cute it is!  Take a look:


One of my favorite color combinations is red, white, & blue, and although I will definitely be using this card for Christmas, it doesn't scream Christmas with this color combo and would work great for a winter birthday or hello card.  I used SU!'s "Northern Flurry" ef for my background and added a few diamond dots to the centers of the snowflakes.  The stamp itself I inked using Night of Navy and then used a Copic (R29) to color in a little on the 2 scarves and hat.  I also added a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the snowflakes above the top & bottom snowmen (if you click to enlarge the picture you can see it better!).  I used Real Red cs to layer with both the background and the stamped image.  I finished with a piece of ribbon that says "Let it Snow".  This would be a quick and easy card to mass produce if needed, and is also pretty flat, so easy to mail! :0)  And yes, my inside of the card is finished also! :0)


Well, 2 cards done for Christmas now, so my "stash" is officially started!  Good feeling!! :0)  And if you love snowmen like I do, make sure you check out all the other entries over at the Merry Monday site here ... LOTS of great inspiration and cute, cute cards!!  Have a great weekend everyone, and thanks so much for stopping by...I love it when you do! :0)

  1. Those snowmen are adorable! I love their noses. The touch of red coloring is the perfect touch. Those diamonds make sure you don't forget to admire the background, too.
