Happy Friday !! It is soon the start of the weekend, and even though I have to work tomorrow, I am excited because I am going to St John's tomorrow evening !! We are leaving when I get off work at 5 pm and then doing some shopping and running around on Sunday and Monday morning before we come home !! Yay !! That means I get to go to Costco, which is my fav store ever. LOL We have been looking at the weather for driving and all that, and it seems like its going to be nice ... sunny or just clear but still -2. So yes, it is STILL officially winter ! Since it is, I made a cute card yesterday using a brand new stamp set (to me anyways) Stylin' Snowfolk !! As soon as I saw this cute set in the Annual Catalogue last June, I knew I HAD to have it !! You know me and my love affair with snowmen. But for some reason, I only just got it in February !! For shame. And yesterday was the first time I inked it up ! Its such a fun set ... take a look at what I came up with !!
Isn't she the cutest snow lady ever !?!? I also used the brand new Sent With Love DSP (available until April 30th), so thats where I got my color combo of Island Indigo, Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Real Red. There is also a matching stamp set for this fun DSP, and you will see me use that soon as well. The most fun thing about this Stylin' Snowfolk set is that there are so many different parts to build your own custom snow person !! Its so fun. So I inked up the snowman body in Island Indigo ink, along with the little stick arms, the cute eyes and the smile. Then I added the Calypso Coral carrot nose and fussy cut it out. Then I stamped the rest of my pieces on some scrap Whisper White and fussy cut them as well: the scarf in Real Red, the mittens in Pool Party, and the cute hat in both Pool Party and Real Red for the flower. They were all added to my lady with Glue Dots. Cute !! I then took a piece of Whisper White measuring 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" and stamped the "thinking of you" from the Sweet Essentials stamp set in Real Red ink and the cute snowflake (also from Stylin' Snowfolk) in Pool Party ink. This got layered onto a piece of Island Indigo cardstock only 1/8" larger and then the snow lady was adhered with some Dimensionals. Cute !!
My card base is a piece of Calypso Coral and I wanted to go for a bunch of different sized pieces of Sent With Love DSP to fill around my stamped image. I picked these 4 fun patterns from that fun DSP, and I think they look so cute together !! The pieces on the top and bottom of the snow lady are 7/8" wide by 3-5/8" long, the long piece on the left is 1-1/4" wide by 4" long and the small square is 1-1/4" square. I just adhered them down with Snail, but popped the stamped panel up with Dimensionals. I then added some Calypso Coral Bakers Twine wrapped around a few times and a little bow. Cuteness !!
Well thats my fun card for today ! Bright and cheerful but also a bit wintery. I really love this stamp set and can't wait to make some more fun things with it !! I hope you liked it too !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
