Challenge 36: Snowmen

Hi Crafters! Thanks for joining us this week - the theme we have chosen this week is a festive one! We would like to see your 'Snowmen' or women if you want to be politically correct!

The Design Team have been busy and have some examples for you below, but first things first we have the results of last week's prize draw!

Congratulations to Claire - Claire's Crafty Corner on being drawn for the fantastic prize of the stamps from Crafty Individuals.

Please EMail your details to and we will get your prize to you. Please note that it may be a couple of weeks because the team member in charge of this is currently away.

Now onto this weeks example cards!

Jo, Fifi, Lesley, Becky, Kate & Wendy

For my card I stamped my Snowman and coloured him with Pro Markers. I matted the image onto gold mirri card and placed this onto embossed card. I added a ribbon, sentiment and decorative corners.

I stamped Linda Luckin's scenery stamp in dark walnut Marvey heritage ink. Then on some Acetate I stamped Linda' snowman in black Stazon - he was then coloured in with dazzling diamond glitter and turquoise glitter. I then stamped the snowman onto the card with the brown ink pad and cut and stuck the glittered snowman. Dazzling diamonds were then added as snow to the background.

I covered a six inch square card with co-ordinating papers. I stamped the snow lady in black and water coloured it, then applied clear gloss over the top. I cut around the image and mounted onto silver card, attached three faux brads and placed on the base card. I die cut a swirl in silver, highlighted it in blue and attached this to the card as a finishing touch.

I stamped my Snuggle Up Snowman stamp by Lindsay Mason twice, water coloured them and cut them out. I embossed some white card with a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the snow and used some star paper for the sky, mounting the snowmen to the card with 3D foam pads. Finally I stamped a message and mounted the whole thing on some blue foiled paper and added glitter glue for that sparkly look.

For my card I have added some Anita's Classic Christmas paper to a six inch square card. I cut two circles out in red and white card and embossed the white card with the Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder. I thread some red satin ribbon through the circles and around the back of the layers, tying in a bow at the side. My stamped image is one from High Hopes and I have coloured him with water colours mounting with 3D foam pads. Embellished with some brads and a gold peel-off snowflake.
