Marker Stippled Smiling Snowman Hat

There’s something about a happy, smiling face… it just makes you want to smile right back!  Our DD has a smile that will stop a baby’s cry… it’s a gift she’s had for years, beginning when she was quite young and would ask why the baby was crying… as she gazed at the crying infant, it would immediately stop crying and smile back at her.  OL, hope that gift persist when she has children of her own! 1.snowmanfaceandletitsnowstampwithdsp

This smiling snowman made me smile too… what a bright happy face he has, don’t you think?  The stamped image is paired with pretty comfort cafe designer series paper, gumball green, whisper white and pool party card stock for a fresh and fun Christmas card.2.stippledsnowmanandprettypapersfieldAfter drawing stripes with the gold stampin’ dazzle marker, the stripes in the snowman’s hat was colored using a raspberry ripple stampin’ write marker.  The cap itself was stippled using certainly celery and old olive markers.3.stippledsnowmancapandcarrotnosesfield

Two little happy cheeks were drawn using a pretty in pink marker, and his nose was colored and shaded using pumpkin pie and tangerine tango stampin’ write markers and blender pen. 4.letitsnowandstippledsnowmancardsfield

Let it snow was stamped with midnight muse ink, punched and layered onto a circle of cherry cobbler punched card stock before attaching to the card base using a stampin’ dimensional.  Just one more detail… a tiny basic rhinestones jewel was added to the center just for fun!

I hope you enjoyed today’s card share… now I’ve run out of cards and will have to spend a whole day crafting and stamping… darn!  LOL.. that’s a good thing!
