IBS New Release - Build A Snowman


Today is Day Four of Inspired By Stamping's September Release!

Our stamp set is called Build A Snowman, and I have to say that playing with it reminded me of when I used to play with paper dolls as a little girl.  You have your basic snowman shape, then lots of "clothes" and accessories to add to him.

Isn't he a hoot?  EVERYTHING on him is a separate stamp including the eyes, carrot nose, mouth, patchwork heart, and patches.  And of course his branch arms. 

The scarf and hat were zip files that Joanna includes FREE with many of her stamp sets and which I cut on my Silhouette Cameo.  Look close, they're both made with leftovers of the fun new digital paper that she has created, too, which I've used on the past couple of cards.  Waste not, want not.  I love that the facial elements (and there are more stamps than just these) are all separate because that means you can give your snowman various expressions.

The cute little banner is also part of the set.  I popped the stars up on dimensionals for added dimension.

Some glittery snowflakes from the Winter Wonderland set adorn the sponged sky, and glitter "drifts" decorate the masked snow banks.

The tree was a personal file cut on my Cameo and decorated with custom colored rhinestones.  (HOW is it that I don't have red rhinestones?  I have every other color!)

Great, great job with the Snowman! I like how you stamped his hat on the digi chevron paper. Cute effect. I also like your custom colored gems. ;)
