We Love Stamping Nov Reminder

It's time for a mid month reminder over at We Love Stamping where the theme is:

** Christmas**
Everyone is making Christmas cards at the moment so there is no excuse not to join us.


I think this little snowman stamp is one of the first stamps I ever bought, so it is a bit of a shame that I haven't used him much. He is designed to be doodled on, so I stamped him in black and took a black fineliner and doodles. His hat, scarf and buttons are coloured with gelly roll sparkle pens and the background is done with alcohol markers.


I diecut the image, found some glitter effect card (a recent find in Hobbycraft), diecut that and added some shiny foiled washi tape to add a bit of extra interest. This was mounted on a piece of black linen effect card and then onto a white cardbase. The sentiment is from Uniko.


What a happy looking snowman he is. 

I hope I have inspired you to join us this month, all you have to do is follow the prompt and ensure stamping is the main focus on your card. I am also happy to say that there are some fabulous prizes prizes to be won. The challenge will close on the 1st December.

Supplies:
Cardstock: White 300gsm card; Glitter effect card
Ink: versafine, onyx black; Fine liner pen; Gelly Roll sparkle pens
Stamps: Leane Creativ doodle stamps
Dies: Claina Palmer double stitched A6 nesting dies

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate it.

I am coming to learn that if it is a little bit different, a little bit quirky and a little bit CAS it is one of yours. That doodle snowman is fab and as a lover of cool colours of course your colour choices really do it for me, great make xx

It's a lovely snowman stamp. The doodling in it, is a very nice detail.
I recognize your shame of not using some (or many) stamps. We collect so much. So I think we are more collectors than crafters, whahaha...
