Swanky Snowdude, PP318

Hi everyone! It's Sunday (my favorite day of the week) and that means it is time for a new challenge at The Paper Players. This week the awesome Jaydee is our hostess, and she has a great sketch for us to play along with. Love this layout, so many options! 

I decided to try out a new stamp set for the first time, Swanky Snowdudes by Paper Smooches. I love these fun images and they are super fast to color. After all, a snowman is white! I just used a little hint of blue around the edges for a shadow. These stamps have matching dies, but as I planted a little bird on the hat, I cut the whole thing out by hand. I don't mind, I kind of miss all the fussy cutting I used to do before (almost) every set had matching dies.

I am also playing along with the Christmas Inspiration Challenge at The Challenge. I was inspired by the colors.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Swanky Snowdudes (Paper Smooches)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Soft Sky, Real Red (Stampin' Up)
Patterned Paper: Let's Bokeh In The Snow (Lawn Fawn)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Bis Shot, Mini Snowflake Dies (Lawn Fawn)

That's it, just a quick post today! Please pay a visit to the rest of our wonderful Design Team at The Paper Players, and we hope you'll find time to play along with us this week, too! 

Inky hugs :)

Squeeeal! How cute is this little snowdude? He's adorable! I read an article about blogger said she has stopped buying the dies because usually she can fussy cut just about anything! Well, there are some that are easier than others, IMO! I sure wouldn't want to be cutting out a pine branch, LOL! His little birdie friend is pretty cute, too!
