JoFY Snowman

Good morning, Kirsten here, happy chilly Monday. I hope you had a nice weekend. I've got two quick Christmas cards to show you today, both made with the very cute snowman from stamp set JOFY58 from PaperArtsy...................

This one has a background of Victorian Velvet Distress ink, with Picked Raspberry DI sponged lightly through a snowflake stencil and splatters of Silver Starlights Metallic Paint.

I stamped the snowman on to the background with Jet Black Archival and again onto white card with Onyx Black Versafine, heat setting with WOW! Clear Gloss embossing powder. I coloured his hat and the baubles with pens before cutting him out and fixing him to the background with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear glue.

I finished the card with a little bit of scribbling with black pen and matting and layering onto a 6x6 card blank..............

Card no. 2 was another very quick background. This time Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade Distress inks on white card, with Royal Blood Infusions from PaperArtsy sprinkled on top and spritzed with water. When that was dry I added splatters of Rich Gold Starlights

I made sure the background was thoroughly dry before applying Imagination Craft's Structure Paste through the same snowflake stencil as above, otherwise the inks would have tinted the paste. I added glitter to the wet paste, but it's not showing up in the photo. 

I repeated the steps with the snowman as above, placing him at the bottom of the card this time and adding the sentiment from JOFY56....................

  1. Two fabulous cards with the JOFY snowman - I'm particularly drawn to the first - which is unusual for me and pink!
