PP470 Fluffy Little Frosty Snowman

Happy Sunday, peeps!  AND Happy December!  Woohoo!  Laurie is our Paper Players hostess with a sweet, fun theme challenge:

How cute is this little snowman?  He reminded me of a Penny Black snowman image I had, so I dusted it off, inked it up in some Weathered Wood Distress Ink and did a wee bit of watercoloring to give him some life:

For my layout, I used the Paper Craft Crew Card sketch:

Vertical Sketch Challenge with square in bottom left corner with designer series paper background on bottom one-third of the card.

I stamped my little snowman on a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, trimmed out the top of his hat and then ran it through the Big Shot with the hat placed OVER the top of the die.  I then colored him with Balmy Blue, Garden Green, Flirty Flamingo and Pumpkin Pie inks and an aquapainter:

I found a couple of background papers in my stash that I thought would look good together; the blue paper even had some foil-printed snowflakes already on it!  Perfect!  I added some Silver Foil swirls and snowflakes and adhered a few silver sequins as well.  The sentiment is from an old Whippersnapper set, and believe it or not, this is NOT a Christmas's a birthday card for a special someone who has a December birthday!  So I stamped this on this inside:

along with another little snowman in the corner, from the same Whippersnapper set!  I love snowmen!

I know there are lots of you out there that just love snowmen, so show us what you create at the Paper Players!  And meanwhile, check out what the DT has created over at the PP blog!  Thanks for popping in today!

Cassidy hasn't worked on her loopy-yarn blanket for a while, so I was happy when Dana sent me these pictures!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

That's such an adorable snowman and I know I've seen this image many times , but it's still as cute as can be whenever I see it used on a card! Loving all the silver accents and snowflakes too! Cute pics of Cassidy too - looks like a snuggly blanket she's working on for the cold weather to come!

Love this adorable snowman, LeAnne! He looks very pretty with his sparkle and shine! It's a good weekend to work on a blanket! It looks so soft and warm.

Love that snowman LeAnne - he looks like he's stepped straight off the challenge badge! Those soft colours behind compliment him beautifully too and the silver accents are perfect. Great job!

Such a sweet little snowman image! The patterned paper compliments him perfectly, too. The little pops of sparkle are such a fun detail.
