HSS Inspiration Challenge #94 WINTER WONDERLAND

GOOD MORNING STAMPERS!!!  I CAN’T wait to share my project for this weeks HSS challenge, the inspiration for this challenge is WINTER WONDERLAND– and I squealed when I figured out what I was going to make.  Me LOVE the 3-D tings!!!  I know when I think about a WINTER WONDERLAND I think snow, hot coco, and fuzzy socks!  So what it made me think of is SNOWMAN SOUP.  This is SO STINKIN’ CUTE!!!

You have to pop over to HSS to see what the other Design Team members were inspired to do for this challenge, man are they talented. :-)
I made these holly leaves and berries with a large oval punch and the 3/4″ circle punch.  Then I used the 1/2″ circle punch to make the holly berries.  SUPER CUTE!!

I used the 3/4″ circles for his eyes, and gave some life to them with my white gel pen.  I use that thing SO much that I usually have 6-8 on hand at all times!!  The nose is hand cut from Pumpkin Pie Card Stock and popped up with demensionals.
Look what I stuck inside- I have a pouch of Hot Coco mix, and a small baggie of Marshmallows, and there was a candy cane BUT I think I dropped it somewhere between my desk and my photo table… Mmmmm
And what Snowman Soup is complete without a sweet little poem for your recipient.  I printed these and created them using My Digital Studio- I love that thing!!!! I attached it to the back of his head- wouldn’t you?!
His hat is made from a few different pieces of black card stock and don’t fret I am making a tutorial on this little man to help you all create it for yourself.  I have to give props to Tammy White, she made this with a 3×3 envelope instead (I used a standard A2 envelope) and she made hers into a ornament hanger.  I just wanted mine to be BIGGER- I am from TX so it’s more appropriate, right?!
So give me a day (maybe 2) to get the tutorial finished… I have my kids home and my goal was to complete it to post with this today, yeah- that didn’t happen.  I will have it for you though BEFORE Thanksgiving- swear!!  I hope you all have a VERY HAPPY & SAFE THANKSGIVING. I am so grateful and thankful for all of you that share in the love of this passion of mine, I am so grateful for ya’ll!  See you back in just a few days, take care and until then~
