KIS #7 - Schneemaenner/Snowmen and Hello to a new member



I am very happy you joined my little blog. And as is customary on my blog I greet  my new members usually with a special picture of artwork that I have discovered on one of my museums trips. This time I choose glass artist Toots Zynsky. One of his pieces is in the Newark Art Museum. I found it stunning and very different from other glass artists. He fuses colored glass threads to create his pieces. Very unique. I hope you like it. I linked his name to his website, where you can see many more pieces better photographed than mine.....


Now here is a real challenge - to pull out those winter stamps when we almost have spring temperatures outside. I seriously thought about skipping this challenge, but then I got over it and made this card. And to keep in line with the KIS challenge - its snowing on my blog. 

I actually had so much fun, I made two cards. This is the first one. The second card, I showed yesterday. I stamped the snowman three times, first on the aqua cardstock and then on white paper and cut it out, mounted it on foam cushions and cut out the "carrot" nose.

Here is a close up:

Materials: stamps - Rubber soul, border punch Martha Stewart

Oh man, is this ever cool ... and aerial view of a snowman! The dimension is great. He's even got a flat hat on his head : )

Thanks for your wonderful welcome! And I have to say this is the coolest snowman card ever!:)

Diese Version in Luftaufnahme ist auch sehr original! Tolle Idee!

Würdest du mir bitte den html code deiner Schneeflocken verraten? Ich finde sie so schön, weil sie so klein sind und so Federleicht runterschweben.

Cornelia, Cornelia...
Ich bin platt. Den Schneemann finde ich noch viel cooler als den ersten, so einen Schneemann hab ich überhaupt noch nie gesehen! Großartig!
Vielen Dank für's Mitmachen bei KEEP IT SIMPLE!,
viele Grüße, Mia

Einfach mal die Perspektive wechseln! Was für eine coole Idee, einen Schneemann in Draufsicht zu zeigen!
Vielen Dank für eine zweite Karte für KEEP IT SIMPLE!
