Snowman Season and Wednesday Sketch Challenge

My little stamp space in the corner of our family room has been a happy, busy place recently.  Good thing I stamp mostly when everyone is at work and school because I talk to myself!  I'll try something and love it so much that I'll burst out, "That is SO pretty!" or "Ooooh, I can't stand the cuteness!"  Lily my pup, who snoozes on a giant pink beanbag next to me, will even get startled occasionally.  Stamping is not a quiet hobby here.

Here's this week's sketch on which my card is based.

Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge 774

My mind immediately went to LAYERS.  The more the better!  And since I had Snowman Season on my desk, that's what I used, along with some other super fun products.

These colors of Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana, and Real Red are so fresh.  I'm not so great with combining colors, so when I use Designer Series Paper, I pull my colors from that.  This paper is called Let It Snow and did you know that Stampin' Up! prints the colors used right on the chipboard backing that comes with the paper?  So handy!  The colors are also listed in the catalog in each DSP pack's description.  Each time I order a DSP pack, I check my cardstock in the listed colors to make sure I have enough.  If not, I add a few packs and it ensures NO disappointment!

This snowman is SO happy!  I had to make him even happier by adding Snowfall Accents Puff Paint to the snowballs in the image.  This stuff is magic in a bottle.  Just shake it up, squeeze a bit out, then aim your heat tool at it and watch it puff.  It's addictive.  I have a stack of cards to share using this stuff, because I could not stop playing with it.  Watch the video here to see it in action and to see another card that uses the puff paint on a cloud image.
