Merry Snowman

Who doesn’t love a snowman??  This cute little guy is from the set Snow Day in the Holiday Catalog.  I stamped his body using Smoky Slate.  I inked the stamp up, stamped it on my grid paper and then stamped it on my Whisper White paper.  I did this because I felt that the color was just a bit too dark going immediately onto the paper.  An extra added bonus was that I could practice placing his eyes, mouth, etc. on my grid paper first!  I also used the Expressions Thinlits Die to make the word Merry (yesterday I used the set for the word Thankful).  I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock and paper from the Season of Style DSP Paper Stack.  I cut my snowman out and used dimensionals to mount him on a piece of Whisper White that I ran through my Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  Another option, if you don’t want to cut the snowman out, is to stamp him directly onto a piece of paper that has not been embossed.  I will post one tomorrow so you can see the difference.

I hope this inspires you to get into your stamping space today and make something!
