SUO137 Snowman Fun

Hello Friends!   

It’s time for the new SUO137 “Cards or Gifts for Children” Challenge – create a card or project for children for the Christmas holiday or any other holiday of your choice.

I have to admit, this was a tough one for me...since we no longer have young children in our family, I do not have many current “cutesy” Stampin’ Up! sets... so I decided to go with punch art (I used Pinterest for inspiration and there are so many great ideas out there :-))

I hope you will have a chance to check out my sister Design Team member samples at the SU-Only Challenge site, pull out your Stampin’ Up! supplies and create your own “Stampin’ Up! Only” project for our challenge gallery. 

I am also linking to the Dragonfly Journeys #34 "Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?" Challenge (thanks, Jeannie for letting me know about your challenge) :-)  

This is a very easy card to make:

Punch two circles from Whisper White cardstock for the snowman’s body, the arms are from Early Espresso cardstock using the Tree Builder Punch, the hat is created from the 1 ⅜” Square Punch and a few scraps of cardstock, the holly is from the Bird and Owl Builder Punches and the carrot nose was cut free-hand.

The sentiment banner is from the White Christmas stamp set (stamped using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with the Delightful Dijon Stampin’ Write Marker).

Quick and fun- do you think a child would enjoy this card? Or maybe even an adult who likes snowmen?  I know I giggled as I made this card so hopefully someone would like to receive it :-)

Stamp Sets:  White Christmas

Ink:  Memento™ Tuxedo Black, Smoky Slate (sponging around the body); Stampin’ Write Markers-  Delightful Dijon and Sahara Sand; White Gel Pen
Paper/Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Delightful Dijon, Cucumber Crush, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Big Shot™, Decorative Dots Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Sponge Dauber, Punches- 1 ¾” and 2 ½” Circle, Bird Builder, Owl Builder, Tree Builder, 1 ⅜” Square

Thanks again for stopping by and we hope to see your Stampin’ Up! Only project in our “Cards orGifts for Children” Challenge gallery!  Hugs and have a blessed week, my friends!
