Merry Monday....Holiday Cheer


Merry Monday Peeps!!!

Today Lesley at Always Playing with Paper has a fun Tic Tac Toe Challenge for us:


I went with Ribbon, Paper Piecing and Red.
I had also just picked up this cute Penny Black snowman stamp and wanted to use him this week.
I stamped the snowman onto some rustic white card stock and also onto some DSP from the Stampin Up "Be of Good Cheer" paper pack. I then cut out and "pieced" the scarf and hat on the snowman.
I then stamped his hat again onto more card stock and pieced the hat brim again. I covered the hat brim with a bunch of stardust stickles.


My card turned out a bit bigger than a standard card, the base is 5-1/2 inches by 4-3/4 inches. 
Then a layer of black and then Crumb Cake and then some Cherry Cobbler, my red. I embossed the Cherry Cobbler with my swirl EF.
 The snowman is cut out with a circle nestie and then I cut a black scallop circle to mat with. 
I used some of the Stampin Up Natural Trim Ribbon across the bottom and tied a bow. 
The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is stamped with black and cut with my nesties.
I added some black brads and some black rhinestones on the sentiment piece.
I love this cute little snowman!!!
Now be sure and hop on over to Lesley's Blog to see what the rest of the Merry makers did with this fun challenge!
Thanks for stopping by today and 
HAPPY STAMPING!!!
