Up To Snow Good..

I don't personally love snow. In fact, I kinda hate it. It's pretty to look at, and makes the world look like a magical fairy land...then you step out in it and it's cold, wet, sticky, and gross. Bah Humbug, right?! LOL! With that said, I do LOVE snowmen, so the new Snowbuddies set from There She Goes is PERFECT for me, and for all you other snowman lovers out there. With over FIFTY stamps, you can create your own snowmen, or use the pre-made ones, but that's entirely up to you!! I decided to pair this super cute set with not only this week's There She Goes challenge(an Inspiration challenge), but with this week's I Spy SketchThis week we are featuring  Christine Okken ChristineCreations at SCS) and is inspired by this card.

I started by stamping my snowman on X-Press It blending card. It was just the body of the snowman, so I added the eyes and nose, and then did the hat on a separate piece of blending card, and cut it out. I colored it all with Copics, then cut it out with my Oval Stax Die-namics. My Fossil layer was cut out with the Oval Open Scalloped Doily Duo Die-namics. I used the Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather paper pad for my card, along with Grapesicle card stock from MFT, and Gummybear from Bazzil. To finish my card, I used several, different embellishments. I used Michael's brads, White Twill ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel(May Arts), some hemp cord from MFT, the Let It Snowflake Die-namics in Sweet Tooth cardstock from MFT, and a Grapesicle button from MFT. Under my ribbon, I used another piece of the Cosmo Cricket paper, which was cut out with the Small Scalloped Border Die-namics from MFT. My sentiment is from the Snowman Sentiments stamp set, also from There She Goes.

Well, that is it for me for now  Be sure to check out the creations from my fellow I Spy Secret Agents, and the Trendsetters from There She Goes.
