Christmas Kickstart: Snowman Magic

My first set out of the new Stampin' Up catalog was Snowman Magic so how could I not play along with the current challenge at Christmas Kickstart: Show Us Your Snowfolk!!

I love this guy especially in combination with that cute bunny.  It's right out of Frosty the Snowman so with his top hat - he is definitely magical!!  And I LOVE the snowflake frame that comes with the die set. I see so many more uses for that.  

I'm not sure I'm loving the way I added the holly.  I stamped it in black because I liked the simple color scheme of just the purplish/blue and red - so didn't want any green.  I added drops of Liquid Pearls to the berries.  I was just going to stick it around the bunny but there was an empty spot below the sentiment so I decided I wanted something in the snowman's hand to fill it in.  I played with a number of options (including his top hat!) and didn't love any of them.  I finally just stuck some holly in his hand and called it good.  I don't hate it - I'm just sure there's something better than my mind wasn't seeing.

I actually had a lot of false starts on this one but it's left me with two other snowmen, two more bunnies, extra ski caps and a number of trees.  I'm thinking there's more snowfolk in my future!

Thanks to Christmas Kickstart for the inspiration.
