Stampin’ Up Spirited Snowmen for Global Designs and Sunday Stamps

Good Thursday Morning everyone and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!.  I’m very thankful for all of you, my followers.  I can’t express how much it means to me.  Hope you are all getting ready for your Thanksgiving dinner, if you have one.  By the time you are reading this, I am probably getting my turkey on the grill and starting all the other trimmings. Hope you all enjoy a wonderful day with family and friends.

For my card today I played along with 2 challenges.  I really like doing the challenges because it gives me a starting point.  Have you ever gotten that crafters block.  The challenges really help.  The 1st one I played along with is Global Designs Projects 165. Please be sure to stop by the Global Designs Projects to see all the beautiful projects everyone has made.  Theirs is a color challenge, here are the colors I worked with

The next one I played along with is Sunday Stamps 192.  Be sure to stop by Sunday Stamps to see all the amazing projects that have been made.  Theirs is a sketch challenge, here is the sketch I worked with

Here is what I came up with for the 2 challenges.  Take a look.

I started with a Merry Merlot card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered a piece of Neutrals Designer Paper in Crumb Cake in the center of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the skating snowman from the Stampin’ Up Spirited Snowmen stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the snowman in using my Crumb Cake, Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Markers.  Using my Big Shot and Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies I cut the image out with the largest Square.  I adhered it to a Whisper White mat, cut from the Layering Squared Framelits Dies, using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added Tranquil Tide pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls as the snowman’s buttons.

On a narrow strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Spirited Snowmen stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink in the center.  I made a banner out of the strip using my Paper Snips and using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker I edged it.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut 3 of the smallest snowflakes from Snowfall Thinlits Dies, (only available until November 30, 2018), out of Shimmery White cardstock  and adhered them to the sentiment banner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside on Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the ice skating snowman from the Spirited Snowmen stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the panel.  I stamped the holly and berries, from the same set, in the corners in Tranquil Tide Ink and colored the berries in using my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up So Santa stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink over the snowman.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the skating snowman on the bottom left of the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Neutrals DSP in Crumb Cake to the envelope flap.

Thank you for taking the time and stopping by my blog.  I hope you enjoyed the card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!
