Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all! We’re sitting watching the impending arrival of Florence on the east coast. Seems that every time they show the potential track – they move it.
Which means that only Flo knows where Flo is going to go.
About the only thing all the models and weather peeps can agree on is that it’s going to be very bad.
If you’re in her sights – I hope you made tracks and are somewhere safe!
My card for today is just a fun little number that uses the new Spirited Snowmen stamp set and some Festive Farmhouse DSP. Take a look-see:
The layout was inspired by this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.
I started with a piece of the pretty Festive Farmhouse DSP and matted it on Cherry Cobbler for the card front. Then I used a few Glue Dots to adhere a length of 5/8″ Striped Burlap Trim.
I matted another piece of Festive Farmhouse on Cherry Cobbler and popped it over the burlap trim with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sweet little Spirited Snowmen image in Crumb Cake on some Very Vanilla card stock and colored it with my Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend, as well as my Light and Dark Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate Blends. I also used the Color Lifter to add some highlighting.
Then I cut the image out with my largest circle Stitched Shapes Framelit die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I cut a Blizzard Thinlits die from Very Vanilla card stock and used Liquid Glue to adhered them on the top of the circle.
For the Spirited Snowmen sentiment, I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler on a strip of Very Vanilla – then I punched the end with my Everyday Label punch. I stuck the strip in thru the BACK of the punch to create the cute little end! I used my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker to add some faux stitches and adhered it to the card front with Glue.
To the end of the sentiment, I added another Blizzard Thinlit snowflake, a Linen Thread double-loop Billie-bow and a double-length bow of Cherry Cobbler Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine. I colored a few Pearl Basic Jewels with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Blend and adhered them to the snowflakes – and the card was done!
On the inside, I stamped some Spirited Snowmen snowflakes and holly in Crumb Cake on a Very Vanilla panel. I colored the holly with my Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Blends. Then I “stitched” around the holly with the Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Spirited Snowmen snowflakes and holly on the front…
…and the envelope flap got some more of the Festive Farmhouse DSP.
Et Voila! Not Christmas, per se – but certainly a lovely card for the approaching festive season. I love these little Spirited Snowmen – and putting them atop Festive Farmhouse DSP just seemed like the right thing to do! Hope you like!

We’ve had a bit of a problem with respect this week.
Or – lack thereof.
I think the picture will speak for itself.
Are you kidding me, squirrel?!? I. AM. DOG!
