Waking Up to Snow~!

It's a snowy scene outside my windows -- our first "real" snow of this season. Pretty late for Nebraska, considering it's December 8. But I am happy with that. I really need to live in a HOT climate! And although I am a 80-95 degree girl, I do love creating snow cards.

So, out come my favorite snowmen from Lawn Fawn's Making Frosty Friends!

Today's SCS  Featured Stamper Challenge 357 inspired me to make this. Congratulations to Anita! What a FUN gallery to browse! Anita has some mad coloring skills! I finally settled on this fun snowman card.
I kept her theme, layout (but made mine square), and used the same designer paper, but changed images, added a fence and doily, and some bling (Silver Rhinestones). I also changed the background shape from circle to hexagon to match the paper. I used the pointillism technique to shade and color the shadows on the snowmen (Ultra Smooth White CS). I used Zva Dimensionals and 1/4" Scor-Tape to hold everything together.

I LOVE this stamp set and the matching dies. It is so much fun to decide what elements to use (hats, gloves, scarves, arms, smiles, muffs, buttons, etc.)! Linked supplies are available at i {heart} papers!
