Happy post Thanksgiving AND Black Friday! I hope you had a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving. We laid low and stayed home and relaxed. I did make our Thanksgiving favorites. A turkey breast cooked using our Ronco Rotisserie (it is the best way to cook a turkey), red potatoes and semi-homemade gravy, stovetop stuffing (Derek won’t eat anything else. Lol!), fruit salad, twice baked stuffed candied yams (OMG! these were delish and not a lot of mess) and of course my yummy “better then pumpkin pie cups”. I have so much to be thankful for that I put it all into my meal cooking this year. The good and the sad make us stronger, so I wish you and yours and wonderful holiday season.
Today’s card is the second project we created in my November Class. It features the adorable snowman from the Sparkly Seasons stamp set. This card came about by me having leftover square of Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party from October Class projects. Yeah, baby, make use of what you have lying around!
BASE: The card base is 4-1/4″ square in Mossy Meadow. The leftover Pear Pizzazz square was cut in half diagonally the layered beneath the leftover Pool Party square. A square of Cardstock Vellum was embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder (it gives the look of falling snow). [TIP: Put adhesive the length of the snowman and across the bottom.] The square is popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
FOCAL POINT: The adorable snowman, from the Sparkly Seasons stamp set, it having fun in the falling snow. The snow drifts are two Extra-Large Ovals. I stamped the snowman onto the Vellum with Momento Tuxedo Black then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder to set. [TIP: Using StaZon Ink gums up the Photopolymer stamp and will actually tear the paper because it gets super sticky.] Then adhere the two Extra-Large Ovals. Next, stamp the snowman onto Whisper White, color with Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party and Pumpkin Pie markers. Then fussy cut the snowman minus his arms (yeah!) and pop him with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a wee bit of Dazzling Details glitter glue to his hat band and tassel.
SENTIMENT: The “Let It” is also from the Sparkly Seasons stamp set. It was stamped onto Whisper White with Momento Tuxedo Black, fussy cut into a rectangle and popped with a half Stampin’ Dimensional. [TIP: place a small glue dot behind this to hold the top of the Vellum down.] The “snow” is the from Seasonal Frame Thinlits Dies. It was cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and glued with the fine-tip liquid glue. [TIP: Make sure to peel off the plastic backing before die cutting. The glue will stick better and faster to the paper backing.]
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a good Black Friday and weekend!
