PenPattern Snowman

Stampendous has celebrated PenPattern images all week long and for my card today, I've used PenPattern Snowman, one of my favs!  I'm in love with snowmen of all sorts but Stampendous has THE best selection I've ever seen and I love every single one of them!  Here's my card for today:

I love the new Stampendous Spoonfuls!  The one I used here is the Spoonful of Snow.  I like that it's not just white and has other little bits of color in the mix.  The handy container you keep it in is pretty darn nifty, too!  I saw somewhere a cool way to store a spoon for a different type of container; now I can't find the blog where I got the idea.  Anyway, I'm going to pass along my slightly different version.  I bought some Command mini clips and put them on the side of my containers.  I had already gone to an ice cream parlor and begged for some sample spoons.  They were kind enough to give me quite a few and I thanked them profusely.  Here's pictures to show you exactly what I'm doing.

Here's what I used to create this card:

Nordic Holiday Patterned Paper by Basic Grey®
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives®
Cardstock by Bazill Basics Paper®
Classic Crest™ Solar White Cover Stock by Neenah®
Copic Markers

Here's what I did to create this card:

  1. Stamp image and color, trim to desired size
  2. Create standard A-2 card base with a tent fold
  3. Trim patterned papers as shown
  4. Adhere all layers
  5. Add snow mix and heat emboss from below

So today, you got a two-for-one!  LOL!  Hopefully you were a little inspired and you received a fun and easy tip for attaching and always having a spoon for your Spoonfuls!  Thanks for stopping by, I'll see you again real soon!  Have a wonderful day!



  1. Wow! How clever the background is to complement the snowman!

  2. I am in love with this colorway too! Everyone went different than traditional today and I just love that. I remember seeing the spoon clipped inside the container too but I don't remember where, but I like your idea too.

  3. So cute!!! Love the spoonfuls and am awaiting the spoons and clips so I can do this! I ordered them the other day so am anxious to get them!! TFS!

  4. Oh fun! I like the bits of color in the Spoonful of snow too! Jennifer McGuire also does the mini spoons & clips for all of her embossing powders, that's where I've seen this. I like how you adapted it for your container!
