Snowman Seasons Heartwarming Memories Cards

I couldn't wait to use the adorable Snowman Punch with the Let It Snow suite of products!  I paired it with several other items from that suite to design one of the card styles for my Snowman Season Class-To-Go Kit. Stampers will create four cards with this basic design, and I'm sharing four variations on today's post.

Background Basics—This card starts with a vertically-folded Coastal Cabana card base: 11" x 4-1/4" and scored at the 5-1/2" mark. Next, I texture embossed the 4" x 5-1/4" Coastal Cabana background layer with the new Winter Knit Embossing Folder and mounted it to the card front with a combination of Tear & Tape and SNAIL adhesives.  I added a 4" x 2-1/4" piece of Let It Snow Designer Series Paper on the bottom half of the card front.

Curly Ribbon—I tied some of the new Real Red 1/8" Curly Ribbon around the card front into a double-knot and frayed out the ends. This ribbon reminds me of the old ponytail ribbon I used to wear as a child and I can see it being excellent for tying around holiday treats and packages!

Smiling Snowman—I stamped the Snowman Season plain snowman in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, along with a hat and two stick arms.  I colored in the image with Stampin' Blends Markers in Pumpkin Pie Light (nose), Basic Black Light, Bermuda Bay Light, Shaded Spruce Light, Real Red Light an Smoky Slate Light. I used a tiny bit of Pool Party Light Blends to add some soft color to the snowman, too. Then, I used the Snowman Builder Punch to punch all of the pieces.

I stamped some Pool Party snowflakes from the Snowman Season stamp set onto a Stitched Nested Labels Whisper White die-cut.  I popped up the snowman body and hat onto the label with Dimensionals, then added the arms with SNAIL. The label was popped up onto the card front, too. I topped off the snowman with a Real Red Rhinestone on his hat. So sweet!

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Snowman Season sentiment in Memento Black onto Pool Party cardstock, then die-cut it with the Ornate Frames dies (from the Halloween Monster Bash suite!).  It's popped up with more Dimensionals.

Two Cool—For my second version, I changed up the DSP and the placement of the elements

I stamped the juggling snowman on this label this time and filled in the empty space at the bottom of the label with the overlapping sentiment label.  I added the Red Rhinestones under that.

More Cool—For the third and forth cards in the kit, I changed the background layer to the coordinating Shaded Spruce just to mix it up!  Other than that, the cards are very similar as the first two cards.

Inspired By—I CASEd this adorable swap card created by Amy Storrie for this class. I love the Real Red and Pool Party color combination on her card.

Snowman Details—I love how Amy added some Pool Party ink with a Stampin' Blends Marker behind the snowman to really make him pop off of the background.  She also stamped with a different image above the snowman and added some textured Puff Paint that looks like teeny little snowballs!  
Simply dab a bit of Puff Paint onto the image, then heat until it puffs up into a fuzzy texture. The Puff Paint has been a VERY popular item from the Holiday Catalog so far!
