Merry Snowman

Good Monday Morning Peeps!!

Today's card share is for the LateNightStampers, Challenge 99 - Blue-White and Silver – use only these colors on your card.

I choose Baja Breeze for my blue on this card. I used Baja for the base which is a 4-1/2 inch square. I followed that with a layer or whisper white that was embossed with the Stampin Up Northern Flurries EF. The snowman image comes from the Stampin Up Jolly Old Saint Nick stamp set. I stamped the snowman onto whisper white card stock with black stazon ink. I colored his mittens, scarf and hat band with baja breeze ink and my aqua painter. His hat is colored with Basic gray ink and the aqua painter as well. I masked off the snowman with a post it not and stamped some 2nd generation baja breeze snow flakes. I added some Diamond Dust Twinklets glitter to the ground around the snowman.

The silver comes into my card in the form of the silver tinsel from the Stampin Up winter mini. I added two strips of silver tinsel across the card. I added a Baja Button from the Candy Cane Big Buttons Pack. I threaded more silver tinsel through the button and added two mini tags to the button. One tag is Baja punched with the jewelry tag and the second is "merry" from the Tiny Tags stamp set.

Well, that is all from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
