"Try It Different" Tuesday: Ukulele Snowman

Snowmen have been one of our customers' favorite themes from the very beginning. It's easy to see why...just take a look at this frosty friend and his owl pal:


Super cute, huh? And check out all the other adorable images in 11137MC Snowy's Woodland Pals Clear Set (drawn by artist Tammy DeYoung):


Inky's October Guest Designer Anna Wight created this lovely card using Ukulele Snowman (0487F in wood mounted):


Fortunately, it's a lot simpler to make than spelling "ukulele." Anna colored the image with ShinHan Touch Twin markers, added her signature tracing wheel dots, and adhered it to a panel wrapped with striped ribbon and topped with a threaded bow.

Then she used foam tape to attach it to a card base layered with more brown cardstock and patterned paper from Memory Box. The finished card really sings!

Inky DT member Michelle Pearson also used the same main image along with other stamps from this set to make a card. How many differences can you spot:


Right away, you'll see the orientation has changed to horizontal. The green and red accents are repeated on a light blue background, but with patterned cardstock from our sister company Darcie's.

Michelle used colored pencils and Gamsol, and she popped up the snowman panel onto a Nestabilities die-cut frame. The little fox was fussy cut and added to the side.

The tracing wheel dots were connected with fine-tipped marker lines to mimic stitching, and the saying was adeed to the front of the card. Finally, this glitzy version contains metallic ribbon and silver nailheads.

I hope that both cards make you want to sing a happy tune today, Inky friends. Thanks for reading!
