Building the Snowman Card

On yesterday’s Live Streams here on Facebook and here on YouTube, Ann shared some tips about shading when you color and about mixing different media like

  • Markers
  • Stampin’ Blends
  • Watercolor Pencils
  • Blender Pens

We didn’t cover it all, but I think we gave everyone something to think about.  From the emails we’ve gotten since yesterday, I think that we helped a few people.

And that’s what we’re here for.  Even though this wasn’t Ann’s version of the Mona Lisa, I think that you all got some golden nuggets to use when you get out your coloring tools.

And here’s how we finished him!

Snowman Christmas CardThe hardest part was figuring out how to do that greeting!  Here’s what we tested before putting it together as it is now, but all of it was using the Christmas Traditions Punch Box which is on sale for 40% off while supplies last.

  1. Stamped greeting in Real Red on  Shimmery White
  2. Stamped greeting in Basic Black on Whisper White
  3. Repeat steps 1 & 2 with different stamp from the punch box.
  4. Stamp 3rd greeting in Basic Black on Pool Party.
  5. Stamp 3rd greeting in Real Red on Pool Party.


We were originally going to use an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, but instead decided to dress up our little snowman with the Stitched Labels Framelits.  That fancy Real Red piece behind the greeting is from that set too.  It’s a good one to have in your stamping arsenal.
