Snowmen Fall From Heaven UNassembled...

Good Morning!

I have fallen in love with this stamp from
it is fun and great for those of us that like to color. i had so much fun with this

card! the coloring is done with prismacolor pencils and
gamsol. i used small black brads for his coat buttons and some glitter(ultra fine) for the snow on his hat.

the cardstock is from stampin up, and the designer paper is from Michaels. (so is my ribbon). his coat looks a
little more rosy than it is ! it matches the cardstock very nicely.

if you are in the market for some fun snowmen and winter scene stamps, this is a great site. Easy shopping, quick and i was very pleased.
thanks so much for stopping by!

I love Halloween in my neighborhood, literally over 1200 -1500 kids come thru and everyone in the area goes all out with decorations and haunted fun! i found these delightful little take out boxes on the SCS gallery by the wonderfully talented Carolina:

mine are a little less decorated, but i loved doing them and they were a nice treat for my daughters.
i used the VOILA set by Stampin up, stamped and then stamped again to create the patterned chef coat and
pants. A fun technique we call Paper Piecing. On some i used brads to make the coat buttons, and on the oval with words i used little beads from Michaels, i shaded the edges with sponging.
it was a fun treat. the little boxes were $1.29 from michaels and came in all colors and i chose the
frosted ones.
thanks for taking a peek.
Have a great day!
