The Snowman

I absolutely love The Snowman by Raymond Briggs, and the darling movie adaptation. It's one of my childhood favs! When I discovered last year that Crafter's Companion UK had a whole line of The Snowman papercrafty products (stamps, CD-ROMs, papercrafting kits), I was SO excited! Well, it turns out that last year was also the thirtieth anniversary, and to celebrate a brand new movie was released, featuring The Snowman and a few new friends! Today Crafter's Companion UK is launching these fabulous brand new products on Create & Craft TV!

I couldn't resist making a couple of samples, combining the newly released stamps with some of the older papercrafting kits. On the card above, I colored the Snowman with my Spectrum Noir pens (HB1, HB2, IB1, IG1, DG2, CG2, GG2), added paper from this fabulous Foiled Paper Block, and new Die'sire Christmas dies (the Lamp Post and Sign and the Icicles).  The card base and die cuts all use Core'dinations

This Father Christmas stamp makes me chuckle SO much!  I colored him with my Spectrum Noir pens as usual (DR7, DR5, CR8, IG1, IG2, FS9, FS3, FS2, CR3, BG2, BG4, BG6, TN4, TB3, TB5, BGR2) and added a Snowflake die and a small Spruce Tree die. The paper is another sheet from the Foiled Paper Block.

If you're in the UK, don't miss out on the newest products! You can see shows on Create & Craft for the next week - check the Facebook page for showtimes and more fabulous inspiration!
