Build A Snowman

Welcome back to this month's Inspired By Stamping release. I hope you've enjoyed all the new sets this month and we've got one more for you, Build a Snowman. Such a sweet set! For my first project I thought an embroidered ornament was just the thing. I stamped the snowman and her hat and scarf in a light color ink and then did some simple stitching to embroider it. I used some Spellbinder dies to cut out my fabric and stitched it up adding some poly fill before closing it all the way. I then added some sequins using Glossy Accents. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out and it will make for a sweet addition to my tree this year.

Next up I made a card that uses some of the new digital paper, the chevron pattern. I love the little JOY garland in this set as well as the little patchwork heart. It gives the set the perfect touch of homespun sweetness. I also used Holiday Tags for my tag and sentiment. The little garland was stamped with the snowflake washi from Holiday Washi tape.

My last card uses my very favorite colors and that sweet patchwork heart and garland again. This time though I wanted no mistaking that this is a girl snowman so I added a little holly bunch found in the Holiday Tags set. I love that I can now cut out these fabulous pieces with my Cameo...let me tell you I did not miss fussy cutting at all! :)
