Garden Snowmen- Two Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers!        
I am still creating Christmas cards and decided to create one for this week’s PP124 Paper Player’s Theme Challengeusing the Splitcoaststampers CC404 Color Challenge (Early Espresso, Marina Mist and Cherry Cobbler).  

If you have not visited either site yet, check out the Design Team Samples and the other entries- such inspiration!

To create this Clean and Simple (CAS) card:

Use Early Espresso Classic Ink to stamp the snowman image onto Whisper White cardstock and color with Stampin’ Write markers.  Use an Aqua Painter to soften the colors and create the watercolor effect.  Cut the image using the Big Shot™ with a Circle Originals™ Die and cut another circle from Cherry Cobbler cardstock (to frame behind the circle die cut).

 Emboss a piece of Early Espresso Core’dinations cardstock using the Big Shot™ with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and lightly sand the cardstock to expose the lighter core. 

Mount the embossed Core’dinations cardstock onto Cherry Cobbler, add the Marina Mist DSP layer to the lower half.  Add the satin ribbon band , mount the focal image with SU! Dimensionals™, add the satin ribbon bow and sentiment banner to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Garden Snowmen,  MDS- Heard from the Heart

 Ink: Early Espresso, Printer Ink- Black, Stampin’ Write markers- Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Riding Hood Red, Soft Suede, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Certainly Celery

Paper:  Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso Core’dinations, Marina Mist DSP
Accessories:  Big Shot™, Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Originals™ 3½” Circle Die, Aqua Painter, Sanding Block, 5/8” Satin Ribbon (from my stash)

Thanks again for visiting!!  I hope all of you are having a great week!
