GDP066 Little Snowman


Happy Wednesday, peeps!  I am winding down my Christmas cards, but still making a few!  My printer ran out of ink, so my plan to get these out today went out the window.....a trip to Staples and I'll be set!  Anyway, the Global Design Project had a cute little sketch and I had been kicking this idea around in my head, so I tried to make it work:

This little snowman punch is an old, old SU one....I used a scrap of white cardstock on which to punch him, then cut him out with the Stitched Shapes framelits:

He is backed with some Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper and topped with a black hat!  I mounted it all on a piece of DSP from a couple of Holiday Catalogs back and a Soft Sky card base.  

It's a challenge to see, but there are stars stamped behind him in Silver Encore ink (CTMH Swirling Stars Essentials) and the sentiment is from Stamplorations (Oh Christmas Tree), tied with some black and white twine.  Easy and cute!

Cassidy got another note in her Advent Calendar box from Mister Elf:

He told her to look behind the reindeer pillow on the couch (if you look closely, you can see a little something peeking out...she didn't notice it though!):

Oh boy!  Smelly markers!

Check out these scents:

For real?  CHIMNEY?????  With my cold, I cannot smell (or taste) a thing, so I still don't know what "chimney" smells like....but I am thinking it's not too appealing, LOL!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

This is "snow" sweet, LeAnne! The shaker is precious and the stars are perfect behind it. Love the touch of b/w Baker's Twine to tie it all together. You'll have to fill us in on those smells when you cold clears up!

Such a cute card with that little snowman shaker.
Hope your cold is better real soon.
Love the photos of Cassidy.

What a pretty card, LeAnne! Just love that little snowman punch (and yes, I remember him!) and the stitched panel! Pretty paper and that sentiment is perfect! Cassidy's picture today made me giggle when I read what the gift of today was! Never heard of smelly markers but I can imagine too that the chimney doesn't smell good! LOL TFS and I hope your cold soon gets better! Have a good day! :)

Smelly markers are right up there with those tricky Jelly Belly tricky flavors I think: Skunk flavored- can you even imagine it?! One out of six good smells isn't too bad though, LeAnne! Your card is just adorable! LOve the black and white twine that gives it such a pop!

That snowman with his teeny top hat speaks volumes!! What a cute card!! Chimney...that sounds interesting!

Gorgeous card LeAnne! I love, love, love that sentiment. The bold black against the Soft Sky really packs a punch. Thanks so much for sharing your creations and for joining in with this week's Global Design Project <3

Is is bad that I still love smelly markers?! These look so fun.
A fun card LeAnne. A beautiful take on this weeks sketch, I adore that sentiment and the black and white twine is fabulous on this card. Thanks so much for playing along again this week to the Global Design Project. xo
