For today’s release, the design team is showcasing the Frosty Folks stamp set and coordinating dies.



To begin, I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my alcohol markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.


I ink-blended an A2-size piece of some Bristol smooth white card stock with some distress oxide inks.  I also used the Hills and Grass stencil to create my snowbanks.


I sprayed some water on the colored background and dabbed it with some paper towel to dry and used my guillotine to cut about a 1/4 inch of this background.  I used a border die to partially die cut the snow so I can tuck my image to the foreground.


I adhered some black & white patterned paper on an A-2 size side-fold card base and also adhered the colored panel.    I foam-mounted my focal image on the card.  I also stamped the sentiment on a red banner die-cut and adhered this piece with some foam adhesive.



To finish my design, I stamped the snowflakes with Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder.  I heat-set the snowflakes using my Wagner heating tool.  Here’s a closer look:
