Simon Says Stamp Snowman Set

SERIOUSLY!!! So many S's! I made these cards for the Simon Says Stamp Store using the Build A Snowman Set .

This first card was made by stamping the snowman in light blue ink and painting BLINGZ around his face and tummy to add dimension. I paper pieced his hat and scarf with the red paper... but first, I stamped them with Versamark and embossed them with red glitter EP. I added the swirls to the back and here he is!

For this card, I made the snowman look so happy by
making his carrot nose point in the air. I love that you can add the facial features wherever you want and whichever ones you want...totally versatile! I sponged clouds in the background and added the rhinestone snowflakes...He really DOES look happy!

This guy... maybe NOT so happy! I am Sending Sunshine (another Simon Says Stamp exclusive set) and my little snowman dude is MELTING!!! I tore pieces of white cardstock and sponged them with the blue.. I used BLINGZ on the snowman and the snow drifts because I LOVE that stuff... and I made the sun with my nesties... Well even if HE isn't happy... hopefully whoever gets this card will be!

Ya gotta love GOOGLY eyes! I added some to this guy and he makes me smile every time I look at that crazy, GOOGLY face! I cut out the boa that is also part of this fun set and painted it with SHIMMERZ and did the same for the crown. I added rhinestones to the crown as well. The snowflakes are adorned with dots and dabs of my gel and glitter pens... overall... an easy card... but surely a FUNNY one!

And... FINALLY... My snowman went to the mall and snuck into the photo booth and here are the pictures that he took! This was a really fun card to make because of the different angles of the snowman and the funny way the images came out! I added the film to the cardstock and where the swirl is... I used BLINGZ once again! This sentiment is also from the Sending Sunshine set from Simon Says Stamp! I hope that you have all enjoyed my fun cards for Simon Says Stamp day... and please go and check them out, The stamps are really nice, affordable and there are like 41 exclusive sets... what more could you ask for? Have a great day!!! and here is a little challenge! I made this set of 5 cards from one stamp set...
