The Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions) card front was embossed using using the Snow Flurries Embossing Folder. The snowman was embossed on Sugar Cube cardstock, then I fussy cut it out so I could pop it up with Scotch Foam Tape on the front of the card. After cutting it out, I used a Clear Wink of Stella Brush to give the snowman some sparkle. Unfortunately, the brush sprang a leak and you can see that in the middle part of the snowman it looks darker. In real life, it doesn't look bad but the photo makes it look different. For the hat and his arms, I used a Black Wink of Stella Brush and for the carrot nose I used an Orange Wink of Stella Brush.
The scarf was stamped on Sugar Cube cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with R27 (Cadimum Red) and YG17 (Grass Green) Copic Markers. It's from the Penguins Stamp & Die Set by Hampton Art. I fussy cut it out then, added it to the snowman using Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
The sentiment is from Compliments of the Season stamp set by Waltzing Mouse and stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I used an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies from Stampin' Up! and popped it up with foam tape. The finishing touch was adding a coal black eye using the Black Wink of Stella Brush.

Thanks, Diane! We have not gotten as much snow as usual this winter. I find I rather miss it. lolDelete
Your snowman is so cute and I too love the sparkle! Our 6" of snow has melted over the past few days but we got a light coating of snow over night and I'm sure more is yet to come. After all, it is only January in Ohio! LOL Great theme and wonderful inspiration Marsha! HugsReplyDelete
Thanks, Darlene! Our winter here in Iowa has been interesting. This week it's to be sunny and in the 50s. We really need the rain or snow.Delete
Oh, this is just so cute! I love all the texture and sparkle!ReplyDelete
