Sweet Stamps- Snowy Day card

For my Sweet Stamps project this week, I continued on my mission to find ways to use up some of my Designer Paper.

  On this card, I punched 1" circles and layered them on the background. I added the snowman which is colored with Copics and highlighted with Sakura Jelly Roll pen. The snowflake is Globecraft and Piccolo using Siam Silver Enamel EP.
  I finished off using my DP paper strips by making an 'extra' card creating a Herringbone pattern.

  My daughter likes one, and hubby likes the other.......
We had a little dusting ~ 2 inches of snow here and we are expecting more tomorrow and Friday- to total about 10 inches.  I bet we will be seeing some new snowmen pop up around the neighborhood.

They are both gorgeous cards Shelly, but I think the herringbone one is the one I like the most.

Love snowmen!! Both cards are beautiful. I need to make some more winter cards for next year! You inspired me to go to the craft room and get busy!

BOTH are wonderful and as cute as can be. Love the background on these too.
Ten inches of snow down this way would be a blizzard and shut the entire town down for days. LOL!

Such fun DP backgrounds for these adorable snowmen, Shelly! I, too, have mounds of DP scraps overtaking me!

I especially like the one with the strips of paper; makes me think of a quilt. Warm and toasty

Really LOVE the way you've put these papers to use Shelly!! I so need to do this!! I would really like to get going on a couple of Christmas designs myself! :)

Terry said...

I need to follow your lead and start using some of that DP! Your snowman is such fun and so appropriate for the new dusting of snow! Lovely card!

Great cards. I love the herringbone technique, and I just did a card using the circles. Great minds think alike.

You are Queen of Techniques!
Another wonderful technique is on display.
Shelly, I have to say that I doubt if there is a jollier snowman than the one on the first card. He is making me :)

Cute cards Shelly! would you believe I thought about getting rid of my snowmen stamps because I hate winter? in the end I kept them, but they still sit in the drawer.

Margaret said...

Both cards are fabulous. It would be hard to pick one over the other. Great idea to use up dp scraps. I have mine sorted, but somehow I never go to that box to pull out something that I could use. Hope the snow doesn't keep you from getting out and about.

Donna K said...

You did a fantastic job using up those DP's Shelly! I have been on that same kick recently. I just need to do that with the rest of my crafting supplies....there are so many untouched items in my "collection" love these sweet winter wishes cards!!

Diane said...

I adore snowmen and would use them year round if I could find a reason. Of course, I don't live where it actually snows so... Both of these cards are just so adorable, my friend! Great paper choices.

Oh, so cute, both of them! I especially love the pop of red on the second one. You are too clever! :^)
Hugs, Penny
