Tombow USA & Stampendous BLOG HOP!

WELCOME to the Stampendous and Tombow BLOG HOP!.  Each of the designers were sent some wonderful products from Stampendous to create with!  I received this cute snowman stamp along with a matching die cutting and stencil/masking set, glitter and bling - and, of course, my markers and adhesives from Tombow!!  YUMMY!
I decided to get an early start on my Christmas ornaments this year with this cute and flaky Snowman in a Snowflake!  Living in Florida makes me miss all things snow, but I can build a snowman anytime of the year with Stampendous and Tombow!

Here's what you will need:
Maya Road 6" x 6" Sheer Snowflake Coaster Album; Archival Black Ink; White and Black Cardstock; Sizzix Big Shot; Scissors
Here's how to make it:
1.) Stamp the Snowman head, face and snowflakes with archival ink on white cardstock four times from the Stampendous Create Winter Stamp Set .
2.) Draw outlines and details on sheer snowflake coasters with Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue.  TIP: I used a piece of black cardstock, so I could see my snowflake more clearly.  Sprinkle with  Stampendous Winter Micro Glitter over black cardstock.  Tap off excess and place snowflake to the side to dry.  Fold cardstock in half and funnel remaining glitter back into container.  Repeat with all snowflakes.  Once first color is dry, add a second color of glitter to each snowflake.
3.) Add color to Snowman faces and snowflakes with Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  Shade the face and snowflakes with Sky Blue #451; carrot nose with Orange #933; coal eyes and mouth with Cool Grey 5 #N65.
4.) Die cut Snowman heads and snowflakes with Sizzix Big Shot using Stampendous Create Winter Die Cut Set.  These Stamp and Die Sets are amazing because they match up perfectly and make cutting out your images a piece of cake!  Apply Tombow 3D Foam Tabs to back of Snowman heads and snowflakes and attach to sheer snowflake coaster.  Repeat with all snowflakes.
5.) Embellish with Stampendous Dot Sparklers Turquoise.  Thread silver ribbon through hole in top of completed Snowflake Ornament and tie a bow.
These Snowman in a Snowflake ornaments were quick and easy to make, so create a blizzard for your family and friends this Holiday Season!
