Hi,it's the weekend.Welcome to My Craft Spot Winter Release Stamp Set Blog Hop. You should have come here from my talented friend Kate but if you just happened to be visiting and would like to start from the beginning go to the fabulous Kimberly of My Craft Spot. I have had so much fun playing with these amazing stamp sets this week.
I am so excited to share my special project with you as this is my favourite item I have made this week. It will have pride of place on my dining table at Christmas.
As a child we had a snowman that was filled with small treats which were opened on Boxing Day tea.
This was my inspiration as each box section including the hat opens to hide a small gift.
Regular friends to my blog will know I have a passion for boxes and 3D items!
Boxes cut at 8.75",8",7" and 6.5" on Blackout feature on P 119 of Tags,Bags,Boxes and More
All white boxes embossed,inked with tumbled glass distress ink and then decorated with Snowtex mixed with white acrylic paint and water and drizzled with Glamour Dust.
I cut a circle again using the blackout feature at 3.5" as my hat base.
Strong glue to attach them to each other.
I chalked the edges of the hat with white ink. I added Scarlet Red and Olive Green Crinkle ribbon topped with a wooden button and vintage twine all (except the button) from My Craft Spot.
I quilled a carrot nose from orange card and added black gems for eyes and mouth.
His scarf is made by plaiting Vintage Vanilla,Olive Green and Scarlet Red Crinkle ribbon together and I think it turned out so pretty.
I added buttons tied with twine and stamped the fabulous sentiment from Winter Wonderland on to some brown cardstock which I embossed and inked. I was originally going to hang this from his arms but decided against it.
Mr Snowman's twiggy arms are made from grungeboard(for strength) from Tim Holtz twig die.
Inked with vintage photo and walnut stain distress ink and then given the snow treatment.
