Jumbo Snowman

Well, I guess I have to accept that Christmas is on its way and make some sort of a start on it!
I have just added this jumbo snowman to the website, it was originally on our Snowy Christmas sheet but we decided to make him an individual design. He is approx. 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" and costs £2.99.

For the card... I painted a wash for the background with the blue/gold from the Icicle Creek Starburst Stain set, then Cuttlebug'd it with the Swiss dots folder when dry. The main background is fusible film, 3 sheets with some shreads inside that I ironed and fused together first then stamped on with brown Stazon ink. He is coloured in with Sakura Souffle pens which dry raised and have a lovely pastel soft matt finish.


  1. He is soooo sweet, almost too relaxed. You know!! L G Life's Good. Colours just the job for xmas.. :)

  2. What a perfect snowman! He's gorgeous :)

  3. Thanks for your comments Jill, I forget which colour startburst stains I use as I mix them a lot. I do have a colour chart I made on the wall so I can usually take a guess if asked lol!
    I know the yellow rose of texas mixed with a pink make a gorgeous orangy colour though which I used for the sand and probably the sky too but switching round which one was the base coat :)


Your comments are always really appreciated!
