Snowman Hugs

Hello sweet friends...hope you are having a wonderful week!  SNSS has so many adorable snowmen sets that just make me smile!  Here are a couple of them on two Christmas cards created for today's post.

This smiling snowman is part of the new Christmas Blocks stamp set.  The background was created with the snowflakes from the Holiday Hugs set and Distress Oxide Inks.  Perfect Pearls mixed with water and sprayed onto the background add just the right amount of shimmer behind the embossed vellum frame.

The galaxy sky on this charming Christmas card was also created with Distress Oxide Inks.  Several colors of ink were sponged onto a mixed media panel.  Black Soot Oxide Ink was then added on top of the colors, spritzed with water and again sprayed with Perfect Pearls.  Several Sequins were added to add to the shimmer.  I found this Galaxy Sky Technique on Jennifer McGuire's Blog and had to give it a try.  The cute snowman and sentiment are from the Welcome Jesus stamp set.

Here are the adorable snowmen stamp sets available at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store that were used to make these cards:
Love the new look!

I'm snow glad you stopped sure to stop again for more SNSS inspiration!
