Hello Crafty Friends!
For those of you attending or following the events at this year's CHA in Anaheim, you will know that today is the last day of the show. I have been following my favorite companies and designers throughout and drooling at all of the crafty goodness. Last year I was lucky enough to attend the conference and had the most fabulous time. This year I planned on attending the event but ended up unable to attend. It was a little disappointing but the good news is that next year I will attend and my sweet hubby will be in tow. I look forward to it!
Yesterday morning I remembered moments from the show. One specific memory was being introduced to Brett Weldele's stamps. I was blown away by the Zombie Casanova stamp set and have been hooked on Brett Weldele's stamps and stencils since. The memory of last year's CHA and visiting the Stampers Anonymous booth inspired me to make a card using Brett Weldele's stamp set, Blizzy the Happy Snowman.
The images were stamped using Jet Black Archival ink onto watercolor paper and then colored using Distress Markers and a water brush. I drew a heart on the snowman and added Stickles.
The fir trees had Stickles applied and glossy accents applied to the carrot nose. The seam binding bow was dyed using Distress Stain. The patterned paper is from Tim Holtz' French Industrial pad.
The inside contains the stamped sentiment from the same set. It was stamped using Distress Markers.
Isn't the snowman just the cutest guy? He definitely warms my heart. There are six stamps in the set and below is the complete set. Such a happy snowman...he makes me smile. :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the card and thank you for sharing in the reminiscence of last year's CHA.
Have a happy crafty day!
