Frosty the Snowman

Happy Saturday, all!  Phew, it's getting hot and I cooled off today by stamping another Christmas card, LOL!  This one uses the colors from ColourQ as well as the "Frosty" challenge from Jingle Belles:

I love this snowman image from Artistic Outpost (Frosty & Friends) but sometimes I struggle with what to do with it!  I tried really hard to use white on my card, but in the end, I had to go with Vanilla, because with that rustic very cool DSP (SU's Serene Scenery), I just needed Vanilla!  So here we go:

I stamped the image in Soft Suede, then used Bordering Blue and Taken with Teal inks to color his scarf and the bird.  I stamped the hat in Basic Gray and cut it out, sponging it a bit for some dimension.  Finally, I stamped the mitten in Soft Suede on Bordering Blue cardstock and cut it out too, adding some dimension with some BB ink and a blender pen:

I added a diecut Christmas sentiment from Simon Says Stamp (Deco Tree) and a liberal sprinkling of Dazzling Diamonds!  It all went on a Soft Suede card base!

'Tis the season....for carnivals, that is:

Lots of fun but a long night for a little girl!

Thanks for popping in!
