This year, I decided to go with a snowman theme. I have worked the two snowmen from Snow Much Fun to the bone (uh, do snowmen have bones??), so decided to give them a little break, and veer towards some of the smaller of Stampin' Up!'s recent snowmen (most of which are, alas, retired).
I stamped 20 of the snowman in Black StazOn on white card stock. I then used a variety of Stampin' Write Markers to give them a little color. My next step was to cut each one of these cuties out. Once that was done, I placed them on the outer edges of a six-inch chipboard circle just to make sure they all fit nicely. I glued a piece of retired Designer Series Paper to cover the chipboard. A snowflake came into being using the old retired four-inch die in my Big Shot, and was affixed to the center of the DSP-covered circle. I then adhered all the snowmen around the edge of the circle, a few of them overlapping bits of the snowflake here and there. Hmmm. A little drab. So I added Dazzling Diamonds to the snowflake along with a few turquoise rhinestones to add that necessary bling for a five-year-old. I tied a silky turquoise ribbon at the top for a hanger.
Here are a few close-ups of the little snow buddies:
Doesn't Stampin' Up! make just the cutest snowmen?? I love 'em!
I hope Stella likes her ornament for 2012.
