A big congrats to Debby, the newest Featured Stamper (FS391) on Splitcoast! She has wonderful gallery and I found quite a few I wanted to case, but I was really drawn to THIS card with its cute little snowman and wonderful colors. I kept the snowman theme and colors, but I used different images, different die cuts and made my own patterned paper instead of using designer paper.
I stamped the three snowmen, colored them and cut them out. I didn’t have the cute little die cut hillside Debby used, so I die cut a similar one a couple of times then added it some white hills for my snowy background. On the blue bg, I used some white pigment ink to stamp a snowflake background & I used a polka dot border & the same ink on blue frame. For the white frame, I used some soft pool ink and a chevron border image to stamp it. The greeting is part of a larger one & I used a SAMJ to position just the 3 words then die cut it w/ a diamond shaped die. The trees die cuts actually started out much fuller & w/ leaves, but I cut them off to resemble winter trees. I added a little stickles to the snowflake bg and buttons on the snowmen. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
