Paper Sweeties Inspiration #15:
I found my inspiration in the theme of this month’s board … the sweet little girl dressed to look like a fluffy little snowgirl … so adorable!
I created a puffy 3-D snowman ornament using the Homespun Holidays and Thanks Snow Much stamp sets along with the Homespun Holidays and Thanks Snow Much Sweet Cuts dies!
I stamped and die cut sweet snowflake and heart shapes – using some of the larger shapes to create a snow theme banner for the little snowman to hold and the smaller snowflake shapes to create ear muffs and a pom-pom for the snowman’s hat! Using the coordinating Sweet Cuts dies for these stamps makes it quick and easy to assemble this little cutie pie!
To finish off this little guy, I added some teeny tiny silver jingle bells and silver ribbon strung through the top of his hat, bright red & white stripped ribbon, a pink satin flower and holly shaped leaves die cut from sage cardstock. The use of fun polka dot and stripped pattern papers make this little fella whimsical and fun! I hung him on a little table top snowman theme tree in my kitchen that I leave up during the winter months, but he would make a cute gift or package topper too!
We are very excited here at Paper Sweeties because we are debuting our shiny and brand new Design Team today! I know you will find so much inspiration in these talented ladies’ creations … we are so blessed to have such an amazing team this year to spark your creativity!!
