Hey there! I've played with the Spirited Snowmen A LOT. This set is a MUST HAVE! I had fun making this little guy:
He shimmies with just a flick of your finger, thanks to a tiny custom-made spring!
I stamped Very Vanilla with the Buffalo Check background and Pool Party ink, then used a Sponge Brayer to roll Pool Party ink over a snowflake stencil created with the Blizzard Thinlet. I cut it with a Layering Oval Framelit to create the background for the springy snowman.
After stamping the snowman with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloring with Stampin' Blends, I cut him out with Paper Snips.
Paper-cutting Tip: Cut slightly outside the lines of the image, leaving a narrow edge of white all around. This gives your eye the impression that the cutting is smoother than it might not really be. As you cut on the curves, move the PAPER more than you move the scissors. This also helps you to cut more smoothly!
I adhered him to the card front with the custom-made spring.
I added a greeting from Beautiful Blizzard and embellishments cut with the Blizzard Thinlets Die. I added rhinestones for extra sparkle, of course!
Inside I used another Beautiful Blizzard sentiment and more brayering with the snowflake stencil.
Wondering about that spring? I have another Spirited Snowman card to share tomorrow, AND a mini-spring tutorial!
