Stampers, I have for you a Happy Scenes Happy Winter Snowman! I wanted to create a snow scene using the Stampin’ Up! Happy Scenes Stamp Set along with a snowman (or snow-girl). The snow-girl is the primary element on my card. She is a whimsical and delightful snow-girl and is appearing to be shrugging her shoulders. Maybe she is just trying to keep warm. What do you think?
To create the “happy scene” for this card, I wanted to use a technique that I’ve not used in a long time. That technique is coloring with Colored Pencils. I used Prismacolor Colored Pencils to create the sky and snow. As for the snow-girl, the snowman stamp that I used is from the Outlines Rubber Stamps Co. I loved the Outlines Rubber Stamp Co. stamps and was heartbroken when the Co. went out of business. 🙁
For the trees in the scene, I used Stampin’ Up! Mossy Meadow ink. I wanted the trees covered with snow, so I used VersaMark Ink on the tree stamp and stamped it over the Mossy Meadow trees slightly off center. I then added Stampin’ Up! White Embossing Powder.
My “Happy Winter” sentiment from the Happy Scenes Stamp Set is slightly hidden. I intentionally adhered the sentiment just under the Mossy Meadow twigs at the bottom right corner. In the upper left corner, I added some Mossy Meadow pine needles and a brown pine cone. I created all three of these elements with the Our Daily Bread Designs Lovely Leaves Dies.
