Old Snow Patches

Hi everyone.  Today's card is for a wonderful on-line friend and stamp illustrator, Lisa.  I met Lisa through Splitcoast Stampers quite a few months ago.  I had seen quite a few of her cards on SCS that I loved and finally looked at her blog.  Wow ... not only does she have a fun, whimsical and CAS style for making cards ... but she also illustrates many wonderful digital images and sells them through Clear Dollar Stamps (Lisa's Doodley Doos).  I just love her style!

Paper piecing is one of my favorite techniques and is so perfect for fun images like the one above from Bugaboo.  Hope you like.

Stamps:  Old Snow Patches Digi stamp (Bugaboo); Snowman Sayings (Amy R)
Paper:  White (Neenah); Be of Good Cheer DP (SU!); Silver glitter  (Best Creations)
Ink:  Black, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Crystal Effects, Clear Stickles, glue, Gumball Green stitched ribbon, adhesives, and sticky strips

I added Crystal Effects to the snowman's nose ... and clear stickles to the "fur" trim on his hat and pompom.

Here's a close-up of the snowman:


  1. Another gorgeous card, Loll! That's a fab snowman - I like the paper-piecing and the added bling. And congratulations on the double-whammy showcase at Less is More!

  2. He is the coolest, Lolly! You've pieced him together brilliantly!! And congratulations for TWO well-deserved shoutouts from LIM! Happy, Happy Dance!!

  3. What a fabulous image Loll. I just love his glittery hat and shiney nose! Wish he'd had a turned up nose cause he'd have looked happier! Congrats on the LIM two-fold - brilliant!
