Snowmen x 3

I got myself some new goodies this weekend and here are some examples of cards using my new stamp set from Hero Arts. I used black, silver and blue inks, white card stock and glitter silver paper. Quick makes with no coloring required, and the cards are light weighted and very practical for postage.
I'm sure I'll use this stamp set plenty more times in the future, I'm thinking of making some pink versions as well...

1) My first card was inspired by sketch #192 over at CAS Colours & Sketches 

2) For my second card I focused on masking the snowman and my card is for  52 Christmas Card Throwdown. For this card I also used a snowflake circle stamp from Magnolia.

3) With my third card I'd like to participate in The Challenge #79


And here's a photo of all three cards together - which is your favorite?

What a gorgeous set of cards! I love snowmen! Looks like you had lots of fun with your new stamps! This is a great set with lots of options! It was a toss-up between #1 and #2 but I finally decided my favourite is #2!

meg said...

the masking and different placement of the trees and sentiment makes each card subtly different, they are wonderfully designed and would look great in pink too

Chrissy said...

What a fab trio of Christmas cards! I really like them all so it would be difficult to choose a favourite - but, at a push I think the 3rd one might just sneak in as the winner for me! These are all beautiful though Pia :-)

All three your CAs look so pretty, and the snowman stamp you bought seems really useful and versatile. Love the idea to see these cards in pink! :)
My favourite is the first one card, but love also the second one with that delightful snowflake circle stamp!

I've just sent for a Christmas stamp, going to use it on all of mine that have to be posted. x

scrappymo! said...

My face is the first one...don't know why! Just like the balance of it, I guess.
I always hate to announce a fave, as if it means the others aren't pretty too!

So pia, they are all pretty and I am loving the way you did the colour on the trees only. Perfect for batch baking!

Why don't you pop over and link these up at Rudolph Days. You have just over 24 hours till we close.

Thanks for popping over too, Shaz in Oz.x

What a super trio of cards. I love the clean, crisp layouts. Mr Snowman looks very jolly! Thanks so much for playing long with 52CCT this week! Deborah, DT.

Paper Profusion said...

These look terrific Pia. I've posted set with same colour scheme today. Love your new stamps. I can't decide if I like the left or the centre one best - my eye seems to be drawn to prefer smaller layered areas on cards. Have a super weekend. Nicola x

Gill Prescott said...

A great set if cards Pia. Thanks for joining us at 52CCT. Gill, DT.

Marina said...

I love the subtle collage effects- these are classy but fun.

Imke said...

Great bunch of cards, Pia !!

Liz Bailey said...

What a great collection of cards Pia. Thanks for making one of them fit with CAS Colours & Sketches. Liz x

Asha said...

CAS cards are the bane of my life. And you've made these look so simple... they would have taken me ages and couple of glasses of wine!

Mimi said...

Far right is my fave. I think the bottom left white resembles a snowy foreground... but if you asked me a different day, I might say a different card! Awesome... you sure are getting your use out of these stamps!
