I built my snowman with hexagons, hexagons, and a few more...hexagons!!
I used a Basic Grey Sizzix die called "Snowman and Stocking" that I got on Black Friday last year...at 75% off! He's just been sitting in my closet waiting for a day like today (and he didn't even melt yet :)!) I must admit that I have never die cut so many pieces in my life...and just for one card? But it was a runaway train that I could not stop, eek!
I placed a frame cut with Papertrey Ink's Hexagon Cover Plate over the top of the snowman piece, then stamped the little hexagon die cuts with the coordinating Happy Hexagons stamp set in neutral colors.
I made a little felt rose with My Favorite Things Mini Rolled Rose Die-Namics die and added a gingham scarf (is there any other pattern??) and some pearls for his eyes and buttons. The hat looked plain so I thought some glittery snow was in order!
We would love for you to play along, too! Upload your creations to Splitcoaststampers using the keyword CHXJAN13. Or you could post a project to your blog and link it to our Facebook page HERE!
Join us next month on Sunday, February 3rd for a challenge hosted by Kelli Hull...but until then, visit these chicks' blogs for some more snowman FUN!
