Snowmen in June


You may not want to be reminded of snow this early in June, but I got another Christmas card done to add to my self- challenge of doing one Christmas card a month. I'm still behind, but thanks to this adorable craft stamp by Janlynn, I'm catching up. This one is called "Cheerful Snowmen", and I'm sure you would agree they look cheerful. I colored them all with Copic markers and cut them out. They are mounted on a SU Top Note die cut in Not Quite Navy and then brayered with white craft ink. I had to add a bit more white with my gel pen to try to create the idea of a snowy night. All of that is mounted on Night of Navy with a Sentiment from PTI's "Made of Snow". The main CS is white. The stars are punched from a SU punch, and the trees are from SU's "Lovely as a Tree". I am just loving these little guys and plan to make more because they really are cheerful little fellas. Janlynn is having a SUPER SALE until the 14th of June, so be sure to check it out. They carry a big variety of items and their craft stamps are beautiful! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a wonderful start to the week.

Karen, this card is incredibly cute! You did a wonderful job and as hot as it is in Texas right now, it's really nice to see some snowmen! :)

Wow Karen - what patience you have to cut out all the snowmen! :) As the designer of the stamp I love seeing what others do with my line art - and I am regularly in awe, as now. Thank you for sharing.
