A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

Snowman in a Snowstorm

The Double D challenge is Let It Snow, and it's definitely snowing on this card.  The snowman looks like he's raising his arms and saying "it's still snowing and has been snowing forever".

I stamped the snowman and coloured him and the ground beneath him with Tombow Markers. I used the Falling Snow stencil and Snowflake paste to add the snowstorm around him. And put a bit of glitter on the ground.

No snow here in Vancouver where I live.  A decent dry day today after a horrid damp drizzly one yesterday.  Those of you with sunshine and sparkly snow, get outside and enjoy it for me!

Stamps - Old Island Stamp Co. snowman, Northwoods sentiment
