The weather is getting cooler, it's almost time to bundle up in warm jammies and drink hot cocoa!  But, until then, I'll make do with some cute Winter-themed stamps and cards. :)

This adorable snowman is part of the "Freezy Fellas" stamp set by Paper Smooches and it's one of my favorite sets.  I stamped him onto heavyweight cardstock and lightly watercolored him with Distress Ink markers, water, and a paintbrush.

I die cut the "Tag Scallop Die", also by Paper Smooches, out of white cardstock and heat embossed the bottom section with gold embossing powder.  I cut another tag from designer paper from PTI and adhered it to the original tag and finished it off with a plain band of coral-colored cardstock in the middle.

The sentiment is also from a Paper Smooches stamp set called "First Aid Kit" and I love using it with my snowmen.  The "Let It Snowflake Die-Namics" dies are from My Favorite Things and I also heat embossed them with gold powder.

I inked the background panel with Distress Ink and flicked on some white gesso paint for a snowy look.  I went back in and added some darker white dots of gesso with a stylus to make it stand out a bit more.  I sparkled up the snowman with a Wink Of Stella glitter pen.

I'm linking up this little fella to the following challenges:


Thanks for visiting!

What a cutie! I love the non-traditional pink!
Over here in Belgium, in stead of getting coulder, it's getting hotter!
This weekend we should get temperatures around 20 C.
But i'm not complaining!
