Christmas in July - Snowman Card set

Hello!  I am working on some Christmas cards, trying to get ahead for Christmas in July.  I recently bought some Heidi Swapp Texture paste and created some backgrounds with stencils.  I really love the way it looks on the light blue cardstock.


I colored all my snowmen with alcohol markers and then added Wink of Stella glitter to the snowy parts.  I mixed several stamp companies to create these cards. I do want to mention that the one Stampendous set has multiple bodies that you can mix and match with the heads, and that is a fun way to create “same, but different” cards!




Supplies:  Stampendous SSC1249 Winter Stack stamp set, Purple Onion designs Yule stamp (snowman with lantern), Elizabeth Crafts Holiday Cheer sentiment set, Lawn Fawn Bannerifci stamp set, Memento and Versafine black inks, Heidi Swapp White Metallic texture paste, stencils from The Crafters Workshop and Memory Box, EK Success large snowflake stamp and snowflake border (for little snowflakes), other items from my stash.

I would like to enter ModSquad Challenge’s Christmas in July challenge.

I always appreciate your visits and comments! Please consider following my blog using the Blogger tool on the side bar, or on facebook or pinterest, too.
