winter trimmings

Baby it’s cold outside.

I don’t know about you but I’m looking for a little snow. If it’s cold, might as well have snow. It’s so pretty and we can build a snowman.

I’ve had to be satisfied with building little paper snowmen. They are so cute and the plus side is that they don’t melt away and my hands don’t get  cold.

These little snowmen are so cute I just had to make an ornament with them to display. The stamps are from the new Avocado Arts Brrr! and the Snow Peeps stamp set and they are just darling to work with!

Here’s a closeup. I’ve used a Maya road Super Mega Bottlecap and filled it with the stamped images and goodies and then trimmed the outside with some fun pom pom trim. Punching a hole it the bottlecap to hang it is super easy with the Crop-a-dile.

I thought you might also like to see how I stamped the sentiment. One thing I love about clear stamps is their flexibility.  You can bend long thing sentiments slightly when placing them on the acrylic block to add a curve. I wanted the curve to fit into the curved banner shaped of the chipboard. I checked it by lining it up through my clear acrylic block before stamping.

Some of the Avocado Arts design team is sharing great projects using this set. Check it…
















Stay warm!
