I Love Playing Paper Snowmen Dolls!

Well, I can't get enough of these cute little snowmen from Lawn Fawn's Making Frosty Friends!
Today's SCS Featured Stamper Challenge inspired me to make this. For Featured Stamper Challenge 355....Congratulations to Julie! What a FUN gallery to browse! I finally settled on this adorable tag but turned mine into a card.

I kept her basic layout and theme, but subbed in a few different elements: designer paper instead of icicle die, chipboard snowflake/twine instead of ribbon and twine bow, snowmen instead of a girl, glitter paper instead of spray for glistening snow, and a banner cut from DP instead of a stamped greeting.

Although only two are really visible in the photo, there are three layers of snow cut from the glitter paper. The snowmen are in front of the back two. I LOVE this stamp set and the matching dies. It is so much fun to decide what elements to use (hats, gloves, scarves, arms, muffs, buttons, etc.)! Stamps are dies are available at i {heart} papers!

I stamped on Ultrasmooth White CS with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Clear Detail embossing powder. I colored in their noses with a YR68 Copic marker. I used a variety of some of my favorite 6x6 pads for the background and clothes. Two are out of print now, but the RSVP pad, for the ear muffs, is available at IHP. I tied some Blueberry Baker's Twine at the top and finished it off with a chipboard glittery snowflake.

I used Zva Dimensionals and 1/4" Scor-Tape to hold everything together. Linked supplies available at i {heart} papers
