March of the Snowmen Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the 2nd Annual March of the Snowmen Blog Hop!!! We are a group of crafters who love snowmen and wanted to show them a little love during this cold, Winter season!!! There will be lots of blog candy along the way so be sure to check out all the blogs as you stroll through the hop!!! If you came from JenMarie's blog, you are on the right track!!!
This Alesa Baker Snowman Stamp is one of my favorites...the little baby snowman is just tooo cute!!! The image was colored with Copics, Barely Banana was sponged over the star, and glitter was added to the hats, snowflake, and star. I used Taylored Expressions snowflake dies to cut the felt snowflakes and MFT's Die-namics were used to cut the scallops at the botton and the felt Rick Rack. The sentiment is from Verve's Winter Wishes set and the button and bakers twine finish it off.
The glitter shows up better in the close up.
Recipe:
Stamps: Alesa Baker Snowmen pair and sentiment from Verve's Winter Wishes set
Paper: Pure Luxury White, Wild Wasabi, Three Bugs in a Rug Let it Snow dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Barely Banana

This adorable snowman stamp from Penny Black was colored with Copics and glitter was added to their caps for a little glam!! Sponging was done around the background while the image was still in the Nesties die. The sentiment from Verve's Winter Wishes set was stamped with Versamark and embossed with white ep. Sewing was done around the background Echo Park Winter Time dp and the wrinkled seam binding, stacked buttons, and baker's twine are the finishing touches!!
