Snowman Sneaky Peek

Sneaky Peek Week for the November release at The Cat's Pajamas continues today with a first look at the Build a Snowman stamp set.. This set is one of six brand new stamp sets and four new CutUps die sets that will be available for purchase on Tuesday, November 17.  You're going to love all of the mix and match options in this set for creating unique snowmen.

I made a wintery scene using the set's two different sized snowman images.  Each snowman is unique thanks to the addition of some of the set's accessories!  I added a bit of color with Copic markers, then assembled the pair.  To make a background for the duo, I covered a red card base with a piece of pale aqua grid patterned paper.  My shimmery white snowdrift is made from one of the CutUps He Said She Said dies.  I love when I can come up with other ways to use my dies! The snowmen were arranged to cover the extra little "bump" in the speech bubble style die cut.

I stamped the set's friendship sentiment at the top of the panel in red pigment ink. To fill in the scene, I scattered a few snowflakes cut with the CutUps Snowflake Lace Paper die around the panel.  The center of each flake was dotted with a blue crystal for an extra bit of sparkle.

Want to win one of the new releases before they're even available to purchase?  Of course you do!  For a chance to win the new Build a Snowman set, just hop along and comment on all of the participating Cat Pack member blogs and the TCP blog today.  One randomly selected winner will be posted on the TCP Facebook page tomorrow.

  1. Love the aqua and red color scheme and the snowmen are just as cute as they can be.

  2. I have admired your designs for quite some time. You always have the perfect backgrounds
    and this card is no exception. Oh, I just gotta have these snowmen!
