Half Priced Snowman..all inked up and ready to go

The best part about the holidays?  The SALES!  Ok, so it isn't the best part...but I do love a sale.  I purchased a new Recollections Holiday set from Michael's the other day that was half off!  It's the little things that makes me smile.  And, though, the holiday's are over that snowman was just calling to me...wanting to be inked up.

So, I had to get him out and get inky.  

First I cut a card base of off white Recollections Paper to make a top folding card.  I cut out a background piece using a Papertrey Ink die out of a 6x6 pad by Prima called North Country Collection.  I also added some polk a dotted washi tape for interest.  I then used my Spell Binder's Labels Eight to cut out another piece of off white cardstock.  This is where I stamped my cute new snowman with Staz On Ink.  I colored his hat and scarf with some sharpies and then used some distress inks to color the background.  (This technique I need to continue to play around with.  I don't feel I am there with it yet.)  

I added stickles and some Ranger Glossy Accents for added interest.  I popped up my snowman and added a sentiment on the inside of the card.  (Does anyone do that anymore?)

Hope you get some time to get inky yourself this week.  Maybe break in  new set of stamps yourself, or even a stamp set you haven't used in a while.

I am entering this in the Creative Card Crew: 77 Anything goes.
