A little Snowman Love

Good Morning!! Are you ready for a little Snowman Love???? This is the set we are featuring on the 2RedBananas blog today. I know you're saying what do Snowmen and Love have to do with each other especially in February right??? Well, in Iowa, we still have about 8 to 10" of snow on the ground and will have much more before winter is over, plus snowmen are just fun! I love to look outside at them while sitting inside drinking my coffee :) So, I decided that a stamp set that has elements of Snowmen and Valentine's Day would be FUN! And so, here it is :)

My first card uses Imaginisce paper from the Loves Me line. I rounded all the corners, something I don't often do, but always like!
I stamped the snowman images in Memento black ink and colored with Copics. The arms I stamped on brown cardstock and the heart on red and then cut them out. The "Be Mine" sentiment is separate from the heart, there are other sentiments you can use to put inside the heart. I pop-dotted the heart and wrapped the arms around the snowman, you can see this better in the close-up picture.


You can see in this picture what I did to the blue background much better. I used the glue pad and stamped the trio of hearts and then glittered them with blue water colored glitter. ( I didn't clean the extra glitter off as well as I thought, sorry about that). I also glittered the outside of the snowman with a quickie glue pen and regular colored glitter.
Then I tied the heart ribbon onto the card. My favorite thing about this set is how the snowman can hold the little heart with sentiments in it. You could also have him hold other things, like punched out stars etc.


For this card, I made the snowman the same way except I left his arms out and put mittens on them. I also painted him with Angel Wings Shimmerz (you can see that better in the close up picture).







Here you can also see the sparkle of the ink that I used for the background snowflakes. It's Pearlescent Sky Blue Brilliance and it's my favorite ink for snowflakes.
No glitter needed :) Oh and I also added dew drops to this one, did you notice the card above doesn't have dew drops on it.......gasp!!!!





The dt has rocked this set as well, so be sure to visit their blogs and leave a comment.


Then go to the 2RedBananas blog and we have a question for you there. Have fun hopping!

I love your cards! These snowmen are so cute. I love the little accents you put on them. I never think of that kind of stuff, so mine look kind of flat, and yours seem to pop more. I love the way the one snowman is holding the heart. Very cute. And all the glitter is cool, too.

Love that second card - the Shimmerz on the snowballs is the perfect touch; like that delicate stamping on the background too.
