Roll, roll, roll a ball Right across the snow. Pile them up and make a man. Make him grow and grow.
I love snowmen, so when I saw the Snow Place Stamp Set and the matching Snow Friends Framelits Dies in the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog, I knew they would be in my first order! I have to be careful when making my Christmas cards and other projects because everything will have snowmen on it if I don’t. The stamp set has 22 stamps, including the snowman, a baby snowman, and the cutest little penguin. The remainder of the stamps are things that you would add to decorate the snowmen and/or penguin, plus greetings. The Snow Place Stamp Set is so versatile. The 15-piece Snow Friends Framelits Dies Set contains matching dies to cut out the stamped images. They make it so easy to create whimsical winter friends in the colors you want and they come in a bundle with the stamp set for 15% off the cost if you bought them separately!
Here is one of the cards we made at my card making class on Monday. We made our own background paper by stamping the tiny snowman from the White Christmas Stamp Set in the new Basic Black Archival Ink and coloring the scarf and hat with a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker, and the carrot nose with a Pumpkin Pie Marker. It was then adhered to the Cucumber Crush Card Stock base. The greeting was stamped in Basic Black Ink.
The banners were made out of 2 of the Cucumber Crush designs from the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Pack and the ends were cut with the Banner Triple Punch.
The snowman image, the coal buttons, and the hat were stamped with the Basic Black Ink on Whisper White Card Stock. The scarf was stamped in Real Red Ink. If you leave enough space between the stamped images, you can cut them all out at the same time with one pass through the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine. All of the dies in the Snow Friends Framelits Set have an open design so that you can see where to place them for precise cutting.
I cut out a piece of Cucumber Crush Card Stock with one of the dies from the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies Set, made little squigglies all around it with my Basic Black Marker, and adhered the die-cut snowman to it. Then I placed the hat and scarf on it. The snowman’s arms were stamped right on the card stock with Early Espresso Ink, but there is also a die for them, too. I finished him off with a Pumpkin Pie nose. Don’t you just love it!
