Spirited Snowmen - Fun and Festive

Good Morning and TGIF! Wow, is it me or did November just fly by? It's been a bit of a whirl wind that's for sure. My trip to sunny Orlando just a few short weeks ago, on one hand seems like a life time ago, but on the other seems like it was just a couple of days ago. I know with this current non-stop snow we're getting here in the Northeast, I'm REALLY wishing I was back in sunny Orlando that's for sure!

Anyhoo, with the end of November here, so is the end of the gorgeous Snowflake Showcase suite of product! The gorgeous White Velveteen Sheets are already sold out, but at this movement everything else is still available, but it all goes away forever after midnight MT tonight! So, if you've been wanting it and holding off, now is NOT the time to hold off. Just sayin'.

Well today I have a cute card to share with you that I did for my tutorial co-op that I belong to with a group of other demonstrators. It's great, we each create one project and write up a tutorial then we have access to all of the tutorials to share with our customers and readers. It's a great time saver that's for sure. But anyhoo, this is the one I shared with the group and it's using the adorable, Spirited Snowmen stamp set. And recently, someone very observant pointed out that this stamp set is NOT Christmas specific and can be used ALL winter season! And that is SO true. None of the sentiments are specific to Christmas! And just by changing up the colors you could easily make this a Birthday card or any other winter occasions card....I'm even thinking Anniversary with the snow couple in this set! Yes, my 25th wedding anniversary is coming up December 18th, soooooo, we'll see! If I do choose this set, I will be sure to share the results with you. But anyway, I veered off topic here, so let's get to today's card.
Now isn't this little skater adorable? I just love him. Anyhoo, to recreate this card, you do need a few things, I started with a card base of Old Olive measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4". I layered a piece of DSP from the Mistletoe collection found in the Annual catalog that measures 4" x 5 1/4". I then cut a piece of Whisper White 3" x 4" and stamped the snowman and the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him in with my Stampin' Blends Markers The colors that I used are the Dark Crumbcake, Dark Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive Light and Dark, Real Red Light and Dark and Dark Smokey Slate. I then added a 1 1/2" x 4" piece of Real Red cardstock and tore the left edge off and attached to the left side of the Whisper White and added it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I hope today's card warmed you up. And remember, today is the last day to grab those beautiful snowflakes.

Happy Stamping,
