Snowman Season - Build a Snowman

This is a adorable card that I cased it from Cindy Brumbaugh.  I love snowmen, but not so much the snow.  The paper snowman is so much for fun to make.  The stamp set is called Snowman Season in the 2019 Holiday Catalog on page 20.  It also bundles up with a snowman punch.  

Here are my instructions:


Stamp Sets:  Snowman Season, Snow Front

Cardstock:  Pool Party, Basic Black, Whisper White

Ink:  Memento Black

Stampin’ Blends:  Pool Party Combo, Pumpkin Pie Dark

Other:  Snowman Builder Punch, Paper Snips, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Dimensionals, Rhinestone Basic Jewels



1.     The base of the card is Pool Party cardstock cut at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and scored at 4-1/4” in the middle.  (Tip:  If making more than one card, use a whole sheet of 8-1/2” x 11” and first score at 4-1/4” and then cut in half at 5-1/2” to save time)

2.    The next layer is Basic Black cardstock cut at 4” x 5-1/4” and adhered to the front of the base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

3.    The third layer is Whisper White cardstock cut at 3-3/4” x 5”.  Use the Snow Front landscape stamp in Pool Party ink and stamp at the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock on the left and then on the right, and then in the middle.

4.    Ink up the sentiment “Let it Snow” with Memento Black ink and stamp in the very top left corner.

5.    Ink up the snowman with Memento Black ink and stamp three snowmen on Whisper White scrap cardstock.  Remember to leave space in between each one.  Punch each one out.  (Trick for Builder Punches:  Punch out on a scrap to use the scrap cardstock for a negative piece to align your stamps right where the holes are to pick all the stamps up with one block.  This is so that you can punch out all your pieces at once after stamping instead of individually).

6.    Punch out all pieces, but we won’t be using the hats.  On the first snowman, use the Paper Snips to cut out the bottom of the snowball but leave the black at the top.  Lay it on the left of the card.  On the second snowman, cut off the two bottom snowballs leaving the black at the top.  For the third snowman, leave him whole but color his nose with the Pumpkin Pie Blend.  Use the Pool Party Stampin’ Blend on the left side of the snowman and the snow balls to give dimension.  Lay them on the Pool Party landscape for placement.

7.    Ink up the snowflake stamp with Pool Party and stamp above each snowball and snowman.

8.    Attach snowball/snowman with Dimensionals.

9.    Add Rhinestones to the Pool Party snowflakes.

10.  Add the sticks for the arms on the final snowman with Multipurpose Glue and leave two others on the ground.
