Thursday in 3D - 03-2018

Hi! I'm back with another card that follows this month's theme of Winter Birthdays. Today's prompt is "cards or projects that are 3D". 

I made this card

I started by die cutting three circles - approximately 1" , 2" and 3" in diameter. I inked the edges with some brown chalking ink. For the eyes, mouth and buttons, I used Simon Says STAMP Lots of Dots stamp set and black ink. I cut a small triangle from a scrap of orange cardstock for the carrot nose. For the arms, I cut out "branches" from dark gray cardstock. For the background, I started with light blue cardstock and stamped snowflakes from Simon Says STAMP Hand Lettered Winter Wishes and clear embossed them. The sentiment is from Sunny Studio's Heartfelt Wishes stamp set. When I assembled the snowman, I used dimensionals between the circles and popped the finished snowman using an Action Wobbler. 

Here's a closeup

This was the first time I've used an action wobbler. It sure makes the snowman "dance". i think that I'll be using them more often.

Technique Tuesday - 03-2018

Hi! It's Sue again here with another card following this month's theme of Winter Birthdays and for today, also following today's technique prompt of using colored pencil on dark/kraft cardstock.

Here's my card

I started with a dark blue cardstock and used Unity Stamp's Snow Way stamp set. I chose the snowman with the hat and tie. I added the balloon from Technique Tuesday's Let's Party stamp set. I colored the image with Prismacolor colored pencils. For the sentiment, I used clear embossing powder and Sunny Studio's Heartfelt Wishes stamp set.

This card is a bit difficult to photograph. Here is a close-up of the cute snowman.
