Here is Mr. Silly Tree pretending to be a snowman... in my mind he is totally animated and even dances and bounces around. Hehehe!

Supplies Used For Mr. Silly Tree:

- We R Memory Keepers Word Punch Board
- COPIC Alcohol Markers In: 100, G05, G17, G28, G29, YR04, YR07, YR18
- Distress Ink in Salty Ocean kit #2
- Momento Tuxedo Black Ink
- Versafine Black Onyx Ink
- Foam Tape
- Vellum
- Red, Black And White Cardstock
- Art Glitter Glue
- Stitched Circle Dies
- White Gelly Roll Gel Pen
- Black Fine Tip Sharpie Marker
- Ink Blending Tools



First I stamped out all of my images using Momento Tuxedo Black Ink and my Stamp Platform. I colored the tree and hand drew and colored the carrot nose in using the above mentioned colors of COPIC markers, then fussy cut them out. Using vellum, folded in half, I die cut a stitched circle leaving the top just inside the circle so it wouldn’t cut. Then I cut a slit in the top where the tip of the tree fit in and glued the back of the tree tree down in place leaving the circle to flip open on the front. Oh, I cut out the circle eyes before gluing it onto the tree 😀
For the carrot nose I simply sketched a silly shaped triangle with my sharpie fine tip marker and colored them in and cut them out.

The paper strips measure 5/8 inch by 5-1/2 inches. To get the letters closer together I simply flipped the punch upside down and looked at how far each letter was being punched apart from the other. I used the negatives to spell out the words below the snow man tree.

For the background I used Salty Ocean Distress Ink and an ink blending tool. Then my white gel pen to add dots of snow and the little snow flakes from the MMI stamp set, “Ornamental Greetings.” The snow man tree got stuck down using foam tape then the strip was glued down to the card panel.

That was a pretty quick summary of the process. I hope it got your crafty wheels turning. And thanks for stopping by the Maymay Made It blog! Happy crafting crafty friends!

Inky hugs,
Candace Gillespie

This is so darn cute. It makes me want to use it as a paper doll and make it dance. Great idea. Permission to case?
