Let it Snow!

I'm in a punch art swap later in the month, and I have 21 of these ready to go in the mail. I had so much fun making these snowmen! Here's what I used.

Snowman body: 1 3/8", 1 3/4" and 2 1/2" circles, all sponged with Pool Party
Scarf: Modern Label punch and Letters to Santa DSP
Arms: Snowflake punch and Soft Suede CS
Hat: 1" circle, small oval for hat, word window (cut down) for hatband
Eyes: Neutrals brads
Sign: Word Window, Frostwood Lodge DSP, Punch Pals for "Let it Snow"

To make his carrot nose, I used an craft knife to trim a pencil eraser into a carrot shape. I've used this technique before when I have something small I need to add. I guess in a way it's like carving your own rubber stamp! I leave it right on the tip of the pencil so it is easy to hold on to. Once it was done, I just had to ink it up with Pumpkin Pie ink and I was ready to go!

The background is Pool Party, and I used a sponge dauber to add Frost White Shimmer Paint to the embossed snowflakes (Northern Flurry embossing folder).

If I have time I will make a sheet of directions and pieces to post so you can see how I put this together.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
