Build A Snowman


Good morning all and welcome to day number five of the Festive die blog launch.  We are starting out with this cute guy from our Build A Snowman die set.  I love snowmen, there are just so many fun ways to decorate them.  This set comes with a bunch of accessory dies such as a top hat, a woollen cap, scarf, signpost, shovel, broom, bow tie, buttons, and mittens to name just a few!  There are eighteen dies in all in this set!  The snowman himself has a cute stitched detail around him to add such nice interest.  I think this snowman appeals to young and old, I know I would love a card made with this set!  If this sort of whimsy appeals to you, just leave your comment on this post.  You might be a winner!  The next post will be along at noon today.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue and all
Such a cute card today and a really fun die set. Your snowman feels right here today, it is 11 deg (at 3 pm), very windy and wet as well, winter has definitely arrived. Great crafting weather though. Now I can't wait to get my hands on the new dies. Your border looks fabulous too Sue

Hugs

Happy Monday Sue. This is the little guy I was waiting to see, the cutie I mentioned yesterday. My window shopping is almost complete just the Finishing Touches to add but I'm looking forward to the rest of the launch and inspiration you give us. It's so heart warming to see each post reach the 100+ mark just a pitty it falls well below after the dies have been won !!!
Looking forward to the next post and what you have in store for us. Have a lovely day xxx ☺

I love the thought of building a snowman too and Winter Wonderland is one of my favourite festive songs and the ideal place to be in Winter, love the fun aspect of the die and a way to get children involved with crafting too! x This is definitely on my wish list must haves list that keeps growing every day. Gorgeous card Sue yet again. x

He's great. I'd like to see more of this little chappie please!- did I just see a teacup?

Donita Naylor said...

He's a cutie all right. Look at those twig arms, his little mittens, buttons, carrot nose, the cocoa mug and the bird for perching on the lamppost or the sign. You even gave him a broom and a shovel!

Of the last two frames, plus the snowman and apparently the snowball frame that seems to be imminent, I like the Believe in the Magic frame, for the bits you can use separately, such as Santa and the reindeer, the clouds, the snow-covered evergreens and that skinny swirly tree, and that one flourish. We get a lot for one price.

Somebody should do a count of all the birds in all your releases. I bet there's a lot.

Hard to shake the idea that it's winter in my imagination, but it's supposed to get up to 100 on Monday.

Best to everyone,

Your only Donita,
In Rhode Island.

Lovely card. There is no other Company out there that would put 18 dies together to build a snowman, you might get 4 or 5 and the price would be huge. That's why you are so special Sue. Fantastic designs, very versatile and fantastic value for money. This is such fun. Thank You.
