Hello crafty friends! It’s Tuesday and that means time for a brand new challenge over at CASology. Here is this week’s cue card:
Screen Shot 2014-12-14 at 10.51.39 AMAs always, you can interpret the word literally or go for something a bit more outside the box. Here is my take on SNOW:


I created a snowman card inspired by my Christmas card that I made last week using lots of small images from a variety of stamps sets. This time I decided to use heat embossing instead of stamping. I started by drawing a snowman on a black card base using a pencil. Then I stamped small images using versamark ink and heat embossed them using white embossing powder. Next, I filled in the gap with same images by heat embossing them using gold embossing powder.


I created another card using same theme, but I used different sentiment and added some border strips next to the snowman this time. Which one do you like? With borders or without? By the way, you won’t believe how many stamp set that I pulled out to create one single card. Guess what? I used 10 stamp sets from my recent favorite stamp company, Mama Elephant. Do you want to know what they are? Rustic Spring, Alpine Carolers, Arctic Penguins, Carnival Cupcakes, Purrfect Pair, Make a Wish, Cross My Heart, On Point Borders, Jolly and Merry, Carnival Toppers.

Yes, I totally went crazy using all of the stamps to shape my snowman. Filling in the shape is a great way to stretch your small stamps. And the good thing is that the list of shapes is endless. Hope you love my cards and get some inspiration to make your own.

  1. Fabulous cards! I think I really like those borders. This is such a wonderful idea. May have to give it a try. I think using a star image would be great, too.

  2. Oh May! These two cards are gorgeous. Your stamping/embossing…superb!….and I am amazed that you managed to fill these snowman shapes so beautifully…and twice! Wow-LOVE

  3. What a striking card, and your execution is absolutely perfect. I cannot image doing that much embossing without making even one mistake. Fabulous craftsmanship on this card.

  4. What a very clever idea May, fabulous one layer creation!

  6. This design is so clever! I love it. Thank you so much for playing along with us in the Winter Inspiration Challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog this week 🙂

  7. May, I would never even attempt that much embossing in white on a dark card base…unless I wanted to make it look like it was snowing! Perfect, just perfect!

  8. wooww May I am the comentator number 31 you are like a rock star…much ladies are love your card..this is soooo clever why…I love how you combine all the stamp from all the company to be this cute snow man and great using the dark card base…Funtastic DT card…I wish you have 2-3 minutes time to see my Snow card and would be so happy if you can leave me some love too..hugs, Monika

  9. Well I am very late to the party here, but I came over from Ardyth’s blog and had to see your card … SO IMPRESSED that you used 10 different sets of stamps to make this snowman, and not a stray piece of embossing powder to be found! At first I was confused wondering what company made this collage-y snowman, because there’s no way you assembled it yourself. Hahaha, I guess I was completely wrong! Great job, May!
