Snowflakes and A Cheery Snowman!

Not your traditional Christmas colors, but fun and bright! Isn't this snowman the cutest? You can color him any way you want to! I used tuxedo black Memento ink for the snowman image and Papertreyink Fresh Snow ink for the snowflakes. Simple card construction, utilizing a cardstock frame left from cutting a circle for another project. I am really trying this year to be more conscious of using leftovers, re purposing, and being more economical minded! That leaves me more funds to buy stamp supplies!
A peek of the JustRite stamps I used. Both sets are from JustRite's Christmas release! The snowflake image can be found in A Merry Little Christmas Set and the snowman image is from the Old Fashioned Christmas Set. Using my round 1 5/8" and 3 1/4" wooden stampers. If you did not get a chance to view the Christmas blog hop, you are in for a special treat! So much inspiration to get you started on those holiday creations. I do trim my JustRite stamps before I use them, and Sharon Johnson has a great post on conditioning them as well, to get a clear stamped image.
A closeup of this adorable image! I used copic markers to color. I did not get the colors written down or photographed before I put the markers away, ugh. I have to remember to photo them before putting them away! Look at that gorgeous ribbon from Sharon Johnson's ribbon store. Click on her ribbon store tabs located on the top of her blog.
Hope you are having a marvelous Monday so far! I will be posting pictures of my new studio this week! I have decided if I wait until the room is all organized and decorated I will never take pictures! Thanks so much for stopping by and
take good care!
