This is Snowball, ice-skating across a Christmas card. I will be mailing it to a friend (in December) who said that snowmen are her favorite.

Snowball Ice-skating


I began with Snowballs’ background on Shimmery White cardstock, cut with the largest Stitched Shapes square die. The Shimmery White cardstock withstands water coloring, which I did with my Aqua Painter and Pool Party ink pad.


After drying and flattening the square of background under the weight of a heavy book, I stamped Snowball in Basic Black ink, and colored “her” (a female snowman) with a variety of Stampin’ Blends. The colors are listed in my Products List below.


The Spirited Snowmen stamp set has a great stamp with snowflakes that I stamped in Basic Black ink three times across a 1″ strip of Shimmery White cardstock.


I needed the snowflake strip for my layered card I was building for this week’s Paper Players challenge.


Beneath Snowball and the strip is a rectangle of Pool Party cardstock embossed by the Swirls & Curls folder.

Snowball, the strip, and the Swirls & Curls layer, were bordered with Basic Black cardstock for additional layering.


The sentiment, “your friendship warms my heart” (Spirited Snowmen stamp set) is perfect for this card, and my friend. I used a Bunch of Banners die for cutting, and added a little Enamel Shapes heart.

Snowball and the sentiment are boosted on dimensionals, and all was adhered to a Bermuda Bay card base. The three sparkly snowflakes were the final detail, cut with a Seasonal Layers die from Sparkle Glimmer Paper


Thank you for visiting, and I hope you have a fabulous day!
