March of the Snowmen

Wow I can't believe it's been a year already and it's time for the 2nd (annual!) March of the Snowmen blog hop. There is blog candy involved so be sure you read all the way down and leave comments :-) I'm showcasing a couple of ideas for you - one is a new post and one is a project I did earlier but I think you'll enjoy the snowmen anyhow.


I wanted to make some glass ornaments with the acetate images inside but didn't get around to it in time for Christmas so I used this opportunity to make a cute little snowman ornament. I MAY use these for the girls in the office next Christmas but at least I got to try out the technique. I think it turned out really cute :-) and it was easy to do!


The image is from JustRite - it's part of the set called Old Fashioned Christmas 3-1/4. I colored the image with Sharpies on acetate - cut out the circle with a Nestie and then it gets popped into a glass ornament that I filled with some fake snow.


In the close up you might be able to see that some of the "snow" sticks to the glass making for a softer effect.

Next up---

Here's my snowman gift card set. I used non-traditional Christmas colors for these groovy little guys.


This little gift box is made from an empty Laughing Cow cheese box. I decorated the top to coordinate with the contents and added some PTI ribbon to the edge of the top and bottom.

The inside bottom of the box is decorated, too, for fun! Once you lift all the cards out there's a sweet sentiment in the bottom from JustRite's All Occasion Nested Sentiements set.


I also added a nestie circle to the bottom to cover up the nutritional label ;-).

Here are the cards I made using JustRite's Groovy Snowmen set. I LOVE this set and used it a lot this year.



That's all for now - thanks for for stopping by - hope you like my GROOVY snowmen! I love these images. I foresee lots of snowmen in my stamping future!! :-)

NOW "march" along to the next blog - don't forget there's some great candy up for grabs as well so be sure to leave comments as you march. Look for specifics on each site.

Have a great week girls.
Hugs n smiles,

Love your snowman ornament, I'd like to file this one away for next season. I know you stamped on acetate, but how large was the circle punch and how do you get it to stand upright? (I'm assuming after the stamps are dry you kinda roll it up to get it into the opening and does it just stand up by itself)?
Many thanks, it's adorable
