{TSG Peeks} SnowBuddies




Snowbuddies, the new set from Melyssa, has SO many possible ways to be used; we can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are about it! With a whopping 57 stamps, you can build your own snowman, use one provided, or a little of both. It’s the easiest way to build a snowman, and you don’t even have to get cold to do it. ;)


I used a $1 frame from Michaels and Snow buddies to create a little snowman scene depicting my family :) I masked the three lil ones in the front, and added mom and dad behind. I added some handcut snowdrifts, trees and fence (using YNS dies) and snowflakes (MFT die). The little red bird is a button from Dress It Up. I topped the snowflakes with SU rhinestones.
 After staining the frame, I added snowflake diecuts (again, MFT), buttons and brown jute twine (Ribbon Carousel). The letters were cut with a Stampin' Up! alphabet die ... Oops! I see now that I must have forgot to add the dot to the 'i'! I'll have to go down to the stamping room and look for it!

I didn't use the Snowman Sentiments on my project today, but there are so many sweet sayings...I can't wait to make up some cards with them!



Snow buddies  is a 6x8 set that includes a total of 57 stamps and will sell for $24.00.

What’s a snowman, without a SUPER cute and TOTALLY clever sentiment to go with it…well, we don’t want to know! The Snowman Sentiments set has 9 fabulous sentiments to coordinate with your Snowbuddies set, or any holiday set you want!

Snowman Sentiment is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 9 stamps and will sell for $9.00.

Would you like to win the new Snowbuddies or Snowman Sentiments stamp sets? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go.
