Sammie Snowman


Sammie Snowman from Fairy Dust Crafts (FDC) is one of my  favourite snowmen and I make at least one card every year with this image.. This year it is an easel card and I have used a few new die cuts and some liquid pearls. The background is paper made with shaving cream and re-inkers;see here for tutorial!





My stamping buddy and I sat down a while ago and spent some time making background paper with  shaving cream and re-inkers. Had been quite a while since we had used the technique. We had so much fun making them and the paper smelled so nice! The  dies's are Memory Box's 'Gabriella Border' and for the fence  Impression Obsession Die 034-U. I used Prismacolor markers to colour the image and   pasted an old snowflake found in my stash to provide the means to keep the easel card upright!
