Inspired Stamps Let It Snow


Hello blog friends!  I have a Christmas card to share with you today using the "Let It Snow" stamp set from Inspired Stamps.  Inspired Stamps is sponsoring the Fussy & Fancy challenge and I have the privilege of being one of their guest designers for their challenge. 

For my card I colored this cute snowman with Copic markers YG17, YG13, YG11, B23, B21, B12, G0000, T5, T3. Since I've been obsessed with circle frames lately I tried a Spellbinders Octagon and embossed my frame with a Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder and added the Spellbinders Scalloped Octagon for a little pop of color under it.  Noel is one of the sentiments from the versatile Inspired Stamps Perfect Christmas Sentiments stamp set.  I added a layered snowflake that I made with a Die-namics snowflake die.  It's super dimensional so I thought what the heck, I'm going to add a button to it :)  

My cardstock colors are Via Vellum Leaf Green, Neenah Haviland Blue Linen & Solar White, Discount Cardstock's Royal Blue.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Jan-love your snowman card. I think the snowman set is my favorite from Inspired Stamps right now. That may just be because I am in Christmas card mode though! Great job!
