On The Last Day Of Christmas.....Snowman Cards and LayOut

Today is my last post as a Guest Designer with Flamingo Scraps. I have had a blast and I thank Suzanne so much for the invite and privilege to create along with her Design Team for the "Flamingo Scrap Christmas In July." Once I got started creating, I could not stop! Here are my three last projects.

For my first project I used the "Winter Fun" collection from Carta Bella. I love the unexpected cranberry being used along with the pretty blues and creams. Really pretty winter colors.

 These papers reminded me of frost and snow and I knew when I received my kit that I wanted to do something with a snowman. I started off by stamping the three snowmen
. Using an aqua pen and ink I lightly colored in the head ware, scarf's, and stick arms. Using the Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament Dies. If you need these or any other dies contact Suzanne and she'll do her best to get them for you !!

 I cut each snowman using the 4th largest die. Before removing it from the die, I lightly shadow inked all the area around the snowman leaving a pretty white framed border.

 I then used a liquid glue and marble glitter to fill in the snowman's head and body and let it dry.

From there I cut three small rectangles of the coordinating papers and attempted to have a slightly different template using the same sized papers for each card.

 I also placed the solid blue paper in an embossing folder for extra texture and interest

 To finish the outside of each card I added three different sweet winter verses and matted them using a punch and more of the coordinating designer papers.

To finish the card I used a stamp called "Snow Friends" and stamped both a verse and another snowman to complete the card. This was "snow" much fun! lol

 I hope you enjoyed my cards!

 Don't forget the most important part. Always sign and date the back of your creations.
Well, this closes out Flamingo Scraps "Christmas in July."
Suzanne, the Designer Team, and guest Designer Team all hope
you have found some needed inspiration to get you started on your Holiday projects.
Don't forget to look for our monthly challenge, F4, where four of our designers make their takes on four like products they are given, and feature them in a post on the fourth Friday of every month, and it's awesome ! Also brighten up your Monday evenings with LIVE USTREAM with TONYA GIBBS,the first Monday of every month at 8:30 p.m. EDT. Guaranteed to be the most fun Monday you've had in awhile. Unless you've recently been out with Tatum Channing or Brad Pitt !
Happy Scrappin'
