Is it snowing?

Hello, my friends.  We've had a few days with some cooler temperatures, but no - not snowing.  I did, however, make a snowman today.

The technique challenge on SCS today was telescoping cards.  When I taught this technique last month, I knew I was going to have to make a snowman and today's challenge was the perfect opportunity.

I started by die cutting three circles of different sizes from white card stock.  I sponged the edges with cool caribbean and bashful blue ink.  (The photo makes it look a lot brighter than it actually is.)

I cut the hat, nose, and scarf freehand.  I decided to leave off any stick arms, so there would not be a problem with them catching as the card was opened or closed.  I used several small punches for the accents

The circles are connected togther with brads.  I really liked how it turned out and it was fun to make. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you all have a wonderful weeks.

That's a neat tricK! When I first looked at the top photo I had no idea what I was seeing.

Very cute! I don't know if I've ever seen this technique. I'll have to go check it out!
