Paper Players #124

Ahh… Monday… back again I see! I think I say it every Monday but the weekend goes way too fast! I did have a good weekend and I hope that you did too. I had a nice day yesterday with lots of crafting, always my favorite way to spend a Sunday.

Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. This week the talented Ann has a snowmen challenge for us…

Paper Players #124

I was going to use either Snow Much Fun or Warmest Winter Wishes but as I was perusing my stamps I was happy to discover that I had purchased (and totally forgot about) Stylin’ Snowfolk. I love snowmen and at one time I had a Christmas tree full of them. My card starts off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. I stamped the greeting from the Curly Cute Stamp Set in Raspberry Ripple along the bottom of the card base. The images are all from the Stylin’ Snowfolk Stamp Set. The body of the snowman is stamped in Basic Gray. I stamped his hat and bow-tie in Basic Black. The bird is markered in Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit and Raspberry Ripple. I stamped the tree in Lucky Limeade and all of those elements are cut out with my Paper Snips. The snowflakes are stamped in Island Indigo and punched out with the 1/2″ Circle Punch, I added some Basic Jewels Rhinestones for a little sparkle. The Labels Collection Framelits Dies are used to cut out a piece of Whisper White and a piece of Island Indigo. Before I adhered all of the elements to the white label I stamped his arms in Soft Suede. The Island Indigo label is pierced around the edge with the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool. A piece of Silver Glimmer paper is partially cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits and adhered to the bottom of the white label. I really like my little snowman and hope that you enjoy him too. Thank you for coming by to see my Paper Players Challenge card for this week. I hope you have a very nice day!
