Quick Tip
When using Alcohol Markers use a waterbase dye ink so the lines do not smudge.

Project: Snowy Snowman

Snowy Snowman is so cute, and he looks good in any colour scarf and on any background. Love that there is a die to match that makes cutting out so simple.
I used:

  • Penny Black Snowy Snowman
  • Penny Black Frosty's Snow dies
  • Die'sire Edgeables Only Words 'Let it Snow'
  • Apple Blossom Ornate border #2
  • Tim Holtz Bigz Texture Fades Snowflake duo
  • Darice snowflakes background embossing folder
  • Ink: Memento, Tuxedo Black; Distress, Stormy Sky; Distress Oxide, Faded Jeans
  • Card stock: white, blue, silver glitter
  • Spectrum Noir alcohol markers: TB2, CR1, PP1, IG1,True black
  • Iridescent Medium
  • Sticky pads
  • Big Shoy Die cutting machine

Stamp Snowy onto some white card and colour in with alcohol markers. The colours listed are a suggestion - you can make the scarf any colour you like!
Cut out Snowy using the die shape from Frosty's snow. This does leave a narrow border of white, which looks ok, but if you really don't like it, fussy cut Snowy instead.

Cut a piece of card 13 cm2 and die cut the edge with the Die'sire edgeble words.
Swipe the snowflake embossing folder with Stormy Sky ink and emboss.
Cut a piece of blue card 13.5 cm2 and distress the edges with a distressing tool or with the back of your thumb nail to give it torn look.
Layer these two together.

Die cut and emboss the snowflake duo from white card. Colour with Distress Oxide Faded Jeans and spritz with water.
When dry, brush on a little iridescent medium to give them a silver sheen.
Stick one of the snowflakes in the bottom left corner.

Make a smaller layered panel from embossed white card 7 cm2 and blue 8 cm2.
Again distress the edges to make them look torn.

Add the small panel, overlapping the snowflake.

Add more snowflakes! Cut the smaller ones from silver card with the dies from the Frosty's Snow set.

Position and stick Snowy onto the smaller panel with sticky pads.
Die cut Apple Blossom Ornate border #2 from silver card and adhere along the bottom.
Mount onto a white 15 cm2 base card
