Slimline Snowman Season

It’s time for another slimline card!  My favorite part of winter is snow….and if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, then you will know that where I live in Virginia, I do not get much….if any….snow.  Every few years we have a big snowfall….and I think we are about due this year! 2EC9C103-097B-4780-9D1D-12B8CFBB3340 The stamp set I used is called Snowman Season and I used the coordinating Snowman Builder Punch for the two snowmen wearing the top hats!  I love punches as it makes everything fast and easy! All the snowmen are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Three of the snowmen are stamped directly onto a piece of 7 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock.  I started by stamping the two snowmen that look like they are juggling snowballs.  I then tried to center the Snowman with the scarf in the middle.  The other two snowmen are stamped on scrap pieces of Whisper White Cardstock and then punched out by using the Snowman Builder Punch.  I  traced the stamped lines with the Pool Party Light  Stampin’ Blends marker.  It helps to define the snowmen from the white background. D7DD7243-3C86-4005-9AF1-06EF7014A149 I used Dimensionals to add the two punched snowmen to the card front so it would look like they were standing in front of the three snowmen that are stamped directly on the cardstock. AD49D52B-240E-428E-AFCA-0ABFD8F0A95E If you would like a HUGE hint about how to stamp and punch the snowmen then check out this picture tutorial below.  You will need a Stamparatus.
  1. Use the punch to make a “stencil”.
  2. Place the stencil on the Stamparatus and place the stamps in the holes.
  3. Close the clear plate and it will “pick up” the stamps.
  4. Ink the stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then place a piece of whisper white in the same position as the stencil.
  5. Close the plate to stamp the image.
  6. Use the punch and you will have all the pieces to assemble your snowman!
If you would like to try this card, these are the supplies that you need:
    • Snowman Season Stamp Set
    • Snowman Builder Punch
    • Night of Navy Cardstock – Cut 8″ x 7 1/2″ – Score on the SHORT side at 3 3/4″
    • Balmy Blue Cardstock – Cut 7 3/4″ x 3 1/2″
    • Whisper White Cardstock – Cut 1 piece 7 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ and Cut 1 piece 7 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ , Plus scraps for 2 snowmen
    • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Night of Navy
    • Stampin’ Blends: Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party, Basic Black, Real Red, and Shaded Spruce
    • Adhesive: Stampin’ Seal and Dimensionals
I also did some stamping on the inside of the card.  Because this is a slimline card there is lots of space inside….plenty of room for a little bit of snow across the top. 7C2F8C5F-E431-4CF4-AFD9-B53562CC1890 Happy Stamping! Patricia
