Same background 5 ways

Hello and happy December!

For todays cards, I used Catherine Pooler’s Build A Snowman stamp set.  Living in Minnesota, Snowman cards are greatly enjoyed.  This set has two different sized snowmen as well as all of the accessories.  They also pair beautifully with dies that you may have from other companies to create charming winter scenes.

I did not create scenes today.  I created backgrounds that were stamped exactly the same using my MISTI and then colored the snowman using my Copic B02, B00 and blender. I outlined all of the snowmen with my C3. After these steps, I changed up how I created the backgrounds.

For my first card, I kept the background white and outlined the snowman using my Copic C3. I used my R20 Copic marker to add some rosy cheeks. I stamped the nose in Orange Peel and then used Copic YR07 to add a little shading on all of the noses.  I fussy cut out all of the noses.

I then used Catherine Poolers “Jolly” die.  I cut the die out 4 times and stacked them together.  I then glued it to some vellum and cut around the word.  I glued that to the card panel.  I then used my Wink of Stella clear pen on the Jolly stack and some Glossy Accents on the nose and that completed this first card.

For my next card. I went without the rosy cheeks and added a red mitten and dots to the background. I used one of the eyes to make the dots.  I used Samba on the mittens It’s A Boy for the dots. I stamped buttons using Midnight ink. I used Wink of Stella on the snowmen and on the mittens and Glossy Accents on the carrot nose.  I used a sentiment from the Making Spirits Bright sentiment stamp set.

The next background, I colored with Copic B24 marker. I stamped some snowflakes using the smaller snowflake in the stamp set.  I heat embossed using WOW! White embossing powder. I stamped a single button using Midnight ink. For my sentiment, I heat embossed using my hodge lodge mix of black embossing powders I have.  I put Glossy Accents on the nose.

For a similar look, I colored this background with Copic B28 for the blue and then drew all of the little flakes on with my Signo Uniball white gel pen. It took about 15 minutes.  It probably would have gone faster if I wasn’t watching TV.  I stamped my sentiment using Midnight Ink. The stamp is from the Making Spirits Bright stamp set. I again did a single button on the snowman.  I colored over the sentiment with Wink of Stella.  It’s making the sentiment look gray in the photo, but it’s sparkly in real life.

Finally, I created a similar background but colored it with my C3 Copic marker and then used my Copic Blender to make the snow flakes. I put two buttons on the snowmen this time and painted the snowmen with Wink of Stella.  The sentiment is from the Making Spirits Bright stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed these backgrounds!  They were fun and very relaxing to create.  % more cards done for Christmas!
