Skating Snowman

It's official!  Today, January 2nd, is the last day to order this cool dude!!  I just love snowmen, and the snowmen in the Spirited Snowman set it no exception!!

Isn't he so joyful?!  That's how I choose to live my life ... joyfully.  That's a New Year's resolution for me -- to find the joy in many if not all situations!  

So, back to my snow-skating dude.  I used the new Buffalo Check stamp to stamp my background (yay, carrying over!), but the Spirited Snowman stamp set is retiring at MN tonight, January 2nd, 2019.  Check out the recipe below, but hurry and get your Holiday 
Occasions stamp sets now before they go away!!  

Use the hostess code, YAFEAX9D, to get a special gift from me (if your order is over $50).  

Card Recipe: 

Whisper White thick c/s: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Balmy Blue c/s: 4" x 5 1/4", stamped with Buffalo Check stamp set using Balmy Blue ink 
Poppy Parade c/s: 3" x 4 1/4"
Balmy Blue c/s: 2 3/4" x 4"
Whisper White c/s: 2 1/2" x 3 3/4", stamped with Spirited Snowman skating snowman image (toward top of WW c/s piece, and "Winter Cheer" sentiment in center bottom of c/s piece.

Color your snowman with Stamping Blends: alternate light and dark Balmy Blend marker on hat, Poppy Parade blend on stripes of scarf and hat as well as skates. Color twig arms and legs using Bronze blend, plus light Smoky Slate blend on skate blades.  

Layer all pieces together and add small snowflake from Seasonal Layers frame lit dies (cut with Big Shot using magnetic platform), attaching with a glue dot.  

Happy New Year friends!!  Happy stamping!
