A Honey Pop Snowman

Hello to all of you.  Hope you're having nice weather wherever you are.  We've had some cold & rainy weather come through.  Woke up this morning and it's verrry cold outside :-(  OK, enough complaining about the weather since there's nothing I can do about it anyway lol!



I have another Inky Antics card to share today.  I was asked to be their guest designer for September and the so-sweet Jackie let me select some fabulous stamps to work with.  Today I have used the Decorating Snowman Honeypop Clear Set  to make my card.  I colored this chubby snowgirl with copics and colored pencils and added lots of Glamour Dust for sparkle.  The snowflakes are from the My Favorite Things Die-namic Let It Snowflake die, and I also added Glamour Dust and a little pearl.  Once again, the sentiment is part of the set, which is just one of the many things I love about their clear sets - lots of cute sentiments are included!



And here's a picture of the inside of the card.  Again, I've used copics, pencils, and Glamour Dust on the snowman.  The honeypop ornament is really simple - just stamp the ornament image on the honeypop, cut it out, and apply it to your card.  If you look closely you will see that my ornament topper is crooked :-(  I made the mistake of stamping my topper after I had applied the honeypop so I had a hard time trying to line it up properly.  I should have stamped the topper before applying the honeypop paper (lesson learned).  If you want to know the proper way to use honeypop on your cards, be sure to stop by the Inky Antics Blog where Jackie shares a little tutorial.  This was the first time I've used the honeypop but it certainly won't be the last.  Inky Antics offers lots of honeypop clear sets and you can find them all here

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita
