Merry Monday #54 & A Blog Named Hero: Freestyle



Happy Monday, welcome for another fun week at Merry Monday.
I am having a great time playing along with the Design Team girls and my Christmas card stash for next year is loving it too.

This week's challenge is to create a Christmas card that uses a snowman.



I started with a blue card base and I stamped and embossed in white with the Tiny Flakes cling stamp from Hero Arts.  I added two snow drifts iced with Frosted Lace Stickles then stamped my older Hero Arts woodblock snowman with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and fussy cut and coloured with Copics.  The final touch was a sentiment in black, I like the way the sentiment looks like the snow in falling in front of it because the embossing resisted the stamping.  I am also entering this card into this week's A Blog Named Hero: Freestyle challenge!




I hope you come and play along with us at Merry Monday this week.  I am so happy my stash of Christmas cards is growing and I know you will be too come next December!  Please visit the rest of the team and see there amazing creations:






Cardstock:  White, Spring Rain (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: Tiny Flakes, Snowman (Hero Arts) Think Big Favorites #8
Ink:  Fresh Snow (Papertrey Ink) Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
other: assorted Copics, Frosted lace Stickles, foam tape
