The simple snowman

Here is the card that I swapped last night for the Split Coast Stampers Swap/Dinner. Oh what a fun night it was. There were games, which my team didn’t win…bummer. There were door prizes which everyone won something…yeah! I won a jar of SU Heat and Stick Powder, so I will have to play with that. There were some really great ideas shared, plus the food was yummy too.

I made a very similar card like this last year, just stamped the trees from Lovely As A Tree, masked the white ground and brayered color (this card is Soft Sky) on the top half of the card for the sky. Then I stamped the sentiment. When I saw this snowman from Simple Snowman, I knew where he belonged…here infront of the trees. I added some dazzling diamonds and there you have it. It does take a little time to do this with masking both the snowman and the ground. When you make 50 of these you have to cut 3 or 4 new masks, because the ink starts to seep through the mask and onto the card.

Hoping to play a little more today. I have to go to work though and really need to clean the house. My house looks like Mommy has been on vacation for the last week. Tomorrow is Corbin’s 8th b’day (he is my middle child), so need to get ready for his special day as well as the family parties this weekend. Busy busy girl here! Gotta run…..
