Penny Black Snowman


I just realized it has been about 6 days since my last blog post....yikes!  But I've been busy getting ready for Christmas, and now I think I'm ready.  :)  

Today's card is for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where we are to be inspired by winter and showcasing Penny Black products.   I just love this cute snowman from Penny Black, and he was fun to color!  I also die cut out the image and a backing with 2 sizes of a Sizzix regal die.

The background I used a Hero Arts stamp and versamark ink. 

Here's a closeup of the snowman:

I added some glossy accents to his pom pom and trim on the hat.  

Finally, I should have stamped the sentiment and embossed with white, but I had an accident with my white embossing powder.   I DROPPED IT AND IT SPILLED.  Disaster!!  LOL  So I had to vaccuum it up and I'll buy new.  An excuse to go shopping, right??  So here's what I did instead:

We all make mistakes, right??  LOL

Thanks for visiting and be sure to follow me for more card ideas in the new year!  :)
