Do you wanna build a snowman

Ok, now that I've got that song going round and around in your brain...this is our weekly theme for the Stampendous Design Team. We released a darling Build a Snowman set a while back that fits this theme to a tee!
Build A Snowman Perfectly Clear Stamps Set - SSC1184
SSC1184 Build a Snowman
As you can see, it's a great set that lets you choose shapes, sizes, and arms. It even has a cute saying and five snowflakes.  Here's how I used it today:

"Yes, I want to build a snowman..."
This set is very easy to use and get everything lined up perfectly. The snowflakes were all put on an acrylic handle, inked with Memento Summer Sky and stamped all over the three smaller panels. The snowmen were stamped on another panel with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Sketch Markers. The "snow" across the bottom of the snowmen and on the pompoms,  is Stampendous Spoonful of Snow, sprinkled on and heated from below. Then it's just a matter of layering everything and assembling. The gems are Kaisercraft Silver Rhinestones (SB700).

This close up shows the texture and dimension the Spoonful of Snow adds!

Here are the measurements and supplies:
Blue base card 7" x 10", score at 5", fold to create an A7 card
White layer 4 3/4" x 6 3/4"
Blue mat  2 1/8" x 5 5/8" (x2)

Darling little snow buddies and those delicate blue snowflakes make a great background for them. Thank you for wanting to build a snowman this week, they are such a sweet combo!
