Chilly Snowman for Two Paper Divas

Here in the South, we rarely get snow.  By now, you've heard of the Blizzard of 2016.  I have family in Baltimore and New York that have really been hit hard.  As a child growing up in upstate New York, I used to love sledding, making snowmen and snow angels..... I have wonderful memories of snowy winters.  The adults who have to deal with it?  Not so much!   So when the Blizzard of 2016 touched our little corner of the South, and we didn't get much, I had to break in this new stamp from Two Paper Divas, called "Chill of Winter".



As you can see, I paper pieced my snowman.  I achieved this by stamping him 3 times; once on white textured cardstock, once on my background of choice and once on patterned paper for the scarf.

I trimmed the white cardstock so I could just lay it on top of my stamped background, then trimmed my scarf and ran both items through my Xyron sticker machine which gives full edge to edge coverage and also made my scarf super sticky so I could add some "fringe" to my scarf.


Here are some close-ups, including the silver bell included in the stamp set.   There are 7 stamps included in this set and one sentiment.
Got to have this stamp set for yourself?  Of course you do!  Visit the link below and check out other project ideas for this stamp.  There are some amazing creations.



Lastly, I added a snowy landscape which is hand-pierced and stamped with the accompanying sentiment.
