Stamping, inking, cutting, layering . . . we all have our favorite techniques! But have you ever thought about combining techniques—and maybe even going a little crazy with them?
Try this. First, moisten a piece of Watercolor Paper with your Aqua Painter and water—no ink. Then, apply a color glaze using the Aqua Painter and Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills. When you add the ink—depending on how long you allow it to dry—you’ll create fun effects!
Then adhere All Is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper strips. (Tip: set your Paper Trimmer aside and use your Paper Snips, instead—for a less "perfect" look.) Then use a Sponge Dauber to cover everything with a little Whisper White Craft ink.
Our card background is ready! Let's add the finishing touches!
Using images from the Letterpress Winter Stamp Set, stamp the snowflake in Marina Mist ink. If you stamp the image multiple times without reinking, it will give depth to your project. A few spots and popped-out accents round out the look.
Repeat these steps to get varying results—depending on the shapes you feel like exploring. Check out these watercolor circles and their little bit of silver embossing.
I hope you'll try this out—and that you’ll make beautiful discoveries while you mix techniques!

You could also put these snowmen to work as cute package toppers or place card holders for table settings. Or gather together your kids or grand kids together for a fun little party making snowmen families to decorate your home.
Create the hat using a 2-1/4" circle, a 1-1/2" circle, and 1-1/2" x 5" strip of cardstock or Designer Series Paper. Make the snowman’s body using 2-3/4", 2-1/4", and 1-7/8" circles (or whatever size you wish)! Use the Owl Punch for eyes and the Bird Punch to make the nose and mouth. Easy!
