Snowman Charm

Make sweet little charms for your tree or gift bags using your favorite Brutus Monroe Stamp set and shrink paper.
To make this charm I first started with the Stars Foundation Die set and a piece of festive pattern paper. I punched a hole in the top and set aside. Next, I stamped a snow man from the Snow Friends stamp set and colored it in with Stylefile markers on a piece of shrink paper. I carefully cut the snowman out making sure to leave room for a hole on the top. I punched a hole and shrunk it with my heat gun.Once it was cool enough to touch I threaded it on a string of hemp and topped it off with a glass bead from my stash.

Let It Snow!

I know it is not even Halloween yet, but I am trying to get a head start on my Christmas cards. I just can’t resist the snowy fun things out right now — probably because I don’t live in the snow! 

 I used a fun build your own snowman as the base for this card! I added some stickles to look like a pile of snow and some bottle cap sequins. One of my favorite things to do is not only emboss the sentiment, but also the edges. To create the background I applied white pigment ink on a snowflake stencil and embossed it with icicle embossing powder.

Snowman Card

This snowman card came together pretty fast! I used the Mandalay Die from Brutus Monroe on Rinea Foiled Paper to create the beautiful sparkle around the snowman. I stamped the snowman and a few snowflakes on a circle I had die cut from the foundation circle dies by Brutus Monroe . I used Stylefile alcohol markers to color in the scarf, hat and present and added a few bottle cap sequence. I layered it on a strip of vellum and pattern paper.

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!
