Printworks Collection 2016 LE Snowman, Little Rascals…


Could this pair be any cuter?  The ‘snow play‘ sentiment fits the image to a ‘t’!  This is the NEW 2016 Limited Edition Snowman from Printworks Collection.  Part of their latest release which includes more snowmen and wonderful Winter/Snow sentiments. You just can’t get any cuter than Annette’s super cute snowmen!

I stamped the snowflake stamp in the background on Strathmore 140# Mixed Media Card-stock with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.

Distress ink pads and the ink blending tools blend wonderfully on this Mixed Media card-stock. I blended over the embossed snowflakes with a couple different blues and spattered some blue ink and then white with a paintbrush.

I painted/colored the snowman and pup with a combination of Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and Distress Inks. Stamped on watercolor paper with Ranger Archival Black ink and cut out by hand.

The snow border is a new poppystamps die, Dotted Curve.

Wow, the last few weeks…where did they go?!  I’ve been making cards, just can’t show them! waaahhh   In the meantime, my camera just up and quit one morning!  Did you hear me scream? A new camera was not on my radar! If you know me, you know I like to research and develop so to speak. lol

Yes, I lost sleep! Thanks to a generous husband, a very knowledgeable friend and a great salesman at the camera store I have a new camera and now if the sun would just shine…. hehe   I’ll figure it out!  I have to! lol

Tomorrow is our area stamp club so I’m going to escape from home for a few hours.  I am probably the only person that still hasn’t taken their Christmas tree down.  I knew it wasn’t a good idea to get a fake tree!  Quit laughing at me!  haha  I’ve been very busy! lol

I’ve missed coming here and chatting through comments.  I always appreciate hearing from you and thank you so much to those that sent me Christmas cards!  I LOVED them all!

I’ll be back!

  1. Pam you are so right about this snowman … he IS the cutest! LOve how you’ve loosely water colored, a wonderful way to go … there isn’t one thing that could make this one any cuter!
    Ahem … I have a fake – it didn’t even come out!!!! xx

  2. Hi Pam! Happy 2017! Sorry to hear about your camera but glad you found a new one. I’m with ya on the tree still being up! It HAS to come down this weekend! Can’t take it anymore. Heehee. Love the card!! I’d add a snowball of sorts to the snowman’s stick hand. He’d be ready to bean the dog which fits the look on his face. Ha! Ha! My brain works in weird ways. Love the coloring, as always! Have a great week!

  3. Love that dog, too. What a cutie!! The whole card is so happy. Thanks for sharing. Glad you got the new camera. Don’t feel bad about the tree. At least you don’t have to worry about dropping needles and having it to water every day.

  4. OH that is so adorable!!! That little dog is precious!! He looks familiar to me?? I love the background and your coloring is wonderful! So glad you got a new camera! Yay!! You’re going to love it!

  5. He is just adorable and the expression on that dog is so funny 🙂
    So sorry to hear about your camera dying on you, that happened at my daughters wedding, I was sooooo upset! I actually finally got my tree down, the house dusted and swept and all my snowman collection up for the winter, that is amazing for me 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Now there’s a couple of cuties! Love the snowman and that precious pup, and your wonderful coloring! Tree? Mine’s long gone but LONG LIVE the tree you don’t have to rush out of your house before it becomes instant flames – lol

  7. You’re so right about how cute that snowman is, but double cute because of his furry friend! Love the colors, the background, and your super awesome watercoloring. Every year I tape all my received Christmas cards around the dining room door frame and just took them down yesterday. They were the one remaining tribute to Christmas. I can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to, and you’ll have to share what kind of camera you got. Your photos always look fabulous!

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
