The first day of the release has reserved us super adorable Snowman Greetings stamp set.

On my stop of this hop you’ll find a fully copic colored sweet winter scene. To start, as always, I die cut from Copic X-Press paper the snowman shape using the coordinating Snowman Greetings Die Set and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. I saved and used the negative part of the die in the MISTI tool to help me with the alignment while I was making the stamping using Snowman Greetings stamp set and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Before switching to coloring, I die cut a few more elements for my scene: three birches from Forest Scene Builder Die Set, a fence from Fence Die Set and a snow hill from Land Borders Die Set.
And here’s the complete list of all the colors used on this project: COPIC MARKERS T0-T1-T3-T5; R30-R32-R35-R37-R39; BG000-BG01-BG02-BG05-BG07; YG01-YG17-YG67; YR12-YR15-YR18; sign E30-E31-E33-E35; E40-E41-E42-E43-E44.
The sky background was inked directly on an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White paper. I used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks along with my blending brushes to achieve a smooth ombré effect. Next I flicked some super tiny droplets of a pearlescent solution and finished the sky with the falling snow that was added through Petite Snow stencil with a plain white embossing paste. I let the backgroung airdry and then assembled all the elements together with a bit of dimension. As a finish touch I used a clear glitter pen to add a bit of shine to the snowman’s accessories along with Glossy Accents and a white gel pen.
