Warm Wishes Snowman

Hello Friends! I am so happy it's Christmas Time! I have been creating Christmas cards since late Summer and I am so excited to be able to share them with you now. I have scheduled a Christmas card parade over the next few days, I hope you enjoy it! Since this is a busy time of year for all of us, I will keep my posts short. Be sure to leave me a comment, I would love to know what you think.

Okay, today's card is one I made with my dear friend Caryl. In fact, many of the cards I will be sharing were made at one of Caryl's card parties.

Isn't this the cutest snowman? I am really starting to enjoy the two-step stamps. I stamped the body first and then added on the 'button's, heart and face, etc, which results in a more colorful image. I just LOVE it! The body was stamped with white pigment ink and then I sprinkled on glitter and heat set it. It's so sparkly!

That's all for today. Thank you so much for stopping by! See you tomorrow.

Oh goody, goody gumpdrops! A parade of cards by Barb! This is gonna be gooooood! Fabulous card here, my friend. LOVE the idea to stamp and emboss the snowman. It looks fabulous all sparkly like that. I agree that being able to stamp on the extra parts makes for a colorful card and one that might be easier to mass produce. Thanks for the inspiration and smiles!
