A Stamp. a Stencil and a Snowman.

Do you want to build a snowman?  Although it seems a little early to me, that is the theme this week for the Stampendous Team.  Of course, as a Dreamweaver ambassador of sorts, I had to add in a little stencil work.  (Very EASY stencil work).  This is what I came up with:

Here is what I used:

Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Scotch® 1/2" Adhesive Tape by 3M®
Scotch® Removable Tape by 3M®
Chameleon™ Markers (Purple Grape, Crimson Red, Grass Green, Spring Meadow, Sunshine Yellow,  Seville Orange, Black, Bark)
Craft Knife
Sharp Scissors
Ribbon by May Arts
Foam Tape
Heat Embossing Tool
Paper Towel


  1. Cut the base card stock to 6 3/4" x 9" and fold on the side.
  2. Stamp the Whispered Wishes image on Multi Media Paper with Memento Ink.
  3. Cut out the wishes sentiment with sharp scissors or a punch (if you have one).
  4. Adhere the wishes sentiment onto burgundy card stock and cut the mat with scissors or a punch.
  5. Color the rest of the image with Chameleon Pens.
  6. Use the Versa Marker to mark areas that you would like to add more white to.
  7. Sprinkle the White Pearls Embossing Powder over the marked areas and shake off the excess.
  8. Use your Heat Tool to emboss the powder.
  9. Cut around the snowman image with sharp scissors and a craft knife. 
  10. Place the stencil face up on the dark blue card stock and tape down the edges with the removable tape.
  11. Tap your stencil brush in the Versa Mark Ink and tap off the excess on a paper towel.
  12. Rub the ink into the wells of the stencil in a circular motion.
  13. Remove the stencil.
  14. Cover the stencilled card stock with the 3D Embossing Powder and tap off the excess.
  15. Use your Heat Tool to emboss the powder.
  16. Mount the snowman to the blue snowflake paper with the 3D Foam Tape.
  17. Tie the May Arts ribbons around the bottom of the card.
  18. Adhere the card to the background.
Thanks for stopping by.  Now that you have seen what I have to offer, check out the other posts for today:
