Today starts a new challenge at Christmas Cards all year Round. The theme for June is snowmen or women. For my card I used a Deep Red Stamp snowman that you can find at
I wanted the outline of the snowman to be black because the white would, well not would it did get lost in the white cardstock. (I tried heat embossing the stamp in white first and decided that was no good.) So I stamped the image with Versa Color black pigment ink and heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder. Then I colored the image in with powdered chalk mixed with paint both by Stamp N Plus. I then matted the image onto a scrap of yellow cardstock and then pulled out this red piece of patterned paper by Bazzill Basics. The red yarn like fibers at the bottom come from a place called Orchard Yarn and Thread Co Inc.
Thanks for looking.
