March of the Snowmen Blog Hop


Are you feeling a chill in the air?  If you do, it is probably because you have just landed on a blog hop full of snowmen!!   Even here is FL we have a snowman for you!! LOL!!

Welcome to the March of the Snowmen!

A while back I was invited to participate in a March of the Snowmen blog hop by Melissa Waldorf!  I was very honored to have been asked, and am thrilled to be participating!

We hope that you will hop along with us, by visiting the blogs listed below.  You will see lots of creations including Snowmen. Don't you just love images of snowmen?  Well you are about to see a wide variety of snowmen stamps!  And as a bonus, many will be offering blog candy too, so make sure you stop in to all of them for a visit!

To find out about the BLOG CANDY contest that I have already had going on, please click HERE!

Here is the contribution that I have to share with you for the March of the Snowmen...


I am proud to show you this incredible snowman stamp that comes from the new stamp company on the block called {Ippity} by Unity.  The snowman and the sentiment both come from the Kissmas & Mistletoe set that can be purchased HERE.




From this angle you can see that I used red glittered embossing powder to make my snowmen in red and pop him right off the page!  Coupled with the DP from SEI and MME that also included embossing and glitter, this card just sparkles in the right light!


This creation was finished with an icicle border created with a MS punch, the sentiment framed with two nesties and a cute gingham ribbon from an unknown source.


The sentiment was embossed first using black embossing powder, and then again in red.  The red heart was paperpieced over the black one to add some additional color.

So now you can don your snow boots and march over to the rest of the blogs who are participating in today's March of the Snowmen...

Kelly,
I really like the trees in the card and the icicle border. Are the trees part of the background paper. I read through a couple of times, but I didn't see the tree treatment. It's such a great card.
