March of the Snowmen Blog Hop

You've heard about the March of the Penguins - BUT have you heard of the March of the Snowmen???  Well, you've just entered a fun March of the Snowmen Blog Hop!  Be prepared for fun snowmen ideas galore!

I created two cards for this blog hop.  This pastel creation is first up. 





I love the border I cut with the cricut on blue cardstock (from PTI).  I stamped a light pink snowflake design on the Kraft cardstock and then used the same Pixie Dust VersaMagic ink to outline the edge of the Kraft card as well.  Kind of gives it a wintry feel to me. 

Supplies for Snowman Joy:

Stamps: TAC Holiday Cheer, TAC October Stamp of the Month
Ink: Claret Palette, Turquoise Gem & Pixie Dust VersaMagic & VersaMark
Paper: TAC Kraft & Ivory, PTI Aqua Mist, Spring Moss
Other: Ribbon (Hobby Lobby), Rhinestones, Eyelet, Pop Dots, Grey Tombow Marker




For this next card I went with a totally different color scheme...a little more traditional Christmas colors. The background is stamped with VersaMark Champagne so it has a shimmer to it. I also took my VersaMark Champagne ink pad and dabbed the little snowman circles/images with it.  This created a little bit of a shimmer on those pieces as well.  The little snowmen circles are popped up on pop dots.



Supplies for Mini Occassions Snowmen:
Stamps:  TAC Mini Occassions, TAC Level A Hostess Set Tiny Tidbits, TAC October Stamp of the Month
Ink:  Champagne VersaMark, Landscape & Moulin Rouge Palette
Paper:  TAC Ivory, PTI Scarlet Jewel, PTI Spring Moss & PTI Ripe Avocado
Other:  PTI Ripe Avocado Button, Scor-pal, Cricut (for scalloped circles), 1" Circle Punch, pop dots

I hope you enjoyed these snowmen cards!  Be sure to check out all of the other participants' blogs to see lots more snowmen creations!
