Snowman Trio Winter Cards with Blockheads

Hello Everyone!
How about some chilly snowman cards!  Today, I have a trio of snowman cards to share with you.  I used the Snowman image from the Illustrated Christmas set by Blockheads Stamps.


The Illustrated Christmas set is such a versatile set.  I have used it many times this Holiday season.  See my Framed Santa Picture too.  Here is the first card.



Materials List for all three cards:
Stamps: An Illustrated Christmas Set
Ink: Onyx black -VersaFine; Stream -Adirondack Ranger 
Cardstock: Gray, Teal, White
Glitter
Silver Pearls
Paper punched snowflakes


Stamp the snowman with Onyx Black ink on gray CS.  Using the Stream Adirondack ink, water color the scarf using a wet brush.  Layer with white CS and add to card base made from teal CS.  


Card number two features the snowman stamped on white CS.  I added some layers and a few silver pearls....keeping it clean and simple.



Here is a close up.



This image is great for CAS cards and would be great for all those last minutes Christmas cars.  And, the last cards has a bit more bling.  The snowflake image from the Illustrated Christmas set was stamped with Stream Adirondack ink on the gray CS.



The scarf was watercolored and glitter was added to the snowflakes.  



Well, friends, I hope you have found some inspiration here for your own Christmas/Winter cards.  I think I would use one of these cards for a winter Birthday too.
Have a great day!  Love ya.
