Happiest of Holidays with Snow Front

Today’s card plays off the “snowy silence” of yesterday’s card. I love the stillness of a snowy winter – probably because I don’t have to live through it. 🙂 We get snow in Atlanta every once in a while, but we don’t spend weeks holed up in the house during winter. I reached for the Snow Front stamp set to build a simple scene. Here’s my 4-1/4″ square card:

  • Snow Front. Stampin’ Up!’s Waterfront stamp set introduced us to a builder stamp set with a watercolored look –  Waterfront is still featured in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog. The 2019 Holiday Catalog introduces us to Snow Front, which gives us some great Holiday-themed images that are perfect for building great landscapes. Here’s a look at the Snow Front photopolymer stamp set:Snow Front, Stampin' Up! 150483Stampin’ Up! has given some great inspiration for this stamp set with samples in the Holiday Catalog. Here’s a look at how versatile and fun this set can be (in combination with some other great sets): Snow Front, Stampin' Up! samples
  • Oval Frame. Instead of building a large scene with this stamp set, I made a small scene and cropped it with a small die from the Layering Ovals Dies. Instead of leaving it there, I cropped an oval from a larger die and cropped the inside out with a smaller die to create a thin frame. I glued the frame down and then popped up the Whisper White oval, letting the patterned Designer Series Paper show through. Here’s a closer look: Snow Front, Merry Moose, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, Christmas Card
  • Color Combination. Say this five times fast – “Soft Suede, Seaside Spray, Shaded Spruce.” You couldn’t do it, could you? I wouldn’t have thought to pair Seaside Spray with Shaded Spruce until they ended up together by accident on my stamp table. I love the contract of the two – such a gorgeous clash. And of course both look great with the warm Soft Suede. If you like this combination of Soft Suede, Seaside Spray and Shaded Spruce, please save this: Stampin' Up!
