I'm SNOW Stuck on You


It's time for another fun challenge at My Craft Spot and this week's challenge is all about PopDots/dimensionals.  We are encouraging you to use PopDots on your projects.

I made a fun little card to give to my husband.  I really AM stuck on him!  


Before Christmas, I'd seen some layered circle snowmen and thought they were so cute.  I finally had a chance to make one!  I cut three circles of different sizes using George and Basic Shapes, layering them with PopDots.  The arms are actually exclamation points from George and Basic Shapes and the little mitts are from Winter Frolic.  I used a snowflake stamp from My Craft Spot's Think Snow set to add some interest to the mitts, stamping white on the red cardstock.  The eyes and "coal" mouth were created with black Enamel Accents and I finished off the face with an orange carrot nose cut from Doodlecharms. 


My snowman also has a Cranberry crinkle ribbon (from My Craft Spot) scarf, knotted at the ends and tucked between the top two layers.


The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Think Snow set, as is the little snowflake (which is actually the same stamp I used on the mitts).  I added a little gem in the middle of the snowflake and used a square punch on the diagonal to create a pennant look.  Finally, the faux stitching on my card was done using a roller stamp from We R Memory Keepers.

Please head over to My Craft Spot and check out the fabulous projects by the rest of the design team - and then link up your own popped creation!
