Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season and Night Before Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we have a sketch challenge for our hop.  I recently opened up a box from Mr Brown, my trusty UPS driver and low and behold, there was the Snowman Season Bundle just waiting for me to ink up.  I decided to ink up that darling snowman and then I used the Night Before Christmas DSP for my background.  Don’t you think the paper was a perfect backdrop for the little frosty guy?

The sketch:

Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season and Night Before Christmas:

The recipe:

Card base: Night of Navy 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Snow: Very Vanilla 4-7/8 x 1-1/8 cut in a curve and embossed the the Hammered Metal EF

the parts

  • Stamp the snowman image from the Snowman Season Stamp Set onto Very Vanilla card stock
  • Out line the inside of his body with your Light Gray Granite Stampin Blend and soften with the Color Lifter
  • Color the snowman nose with the Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin Blend
  • Stamp his arms with Early Espresso Ink
