The Spirited Snowmen stamp set has been a Christmas card favorite, and will continue to be used throughout the winter months.
My husband and I were married in Pittsburgh on February 1st, nearly 33 years ago. There was snow on the ground, and even though we live in San Diego, I think this will be a perfect Anniversary card for him. Isn’t this couple adorable?
Stamping and coloring the couple is the first thing I did. I stamped the couple in Smoky Slate ink on Watercolor Paper, and used an Aqua Painter with Smoky Slate to fill in their bodies. I continued watercoloring, using six other ink pads: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz, Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, and Soft Suede.
Once colored, I used a Rectangle Stitched die for cutting around my snow couple. The sentiment, “love never melts,” is so cute, and a must for this Anniversary card. I stamped it in Crumb Cake ink on Watercolor Paper, and used a Rectangle Stitched die for cutting.
The layer of hearts is from a Be Mine Stitched die, and fits in perfectly with the current Global Design Project, sketch challenge.
The background was made with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder on a piece of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper. I chose a Smoky Slate card base, so it would all blend together.
I’m so glad this is the stamp set that was chosen for this week’s What Will You Stamp? challenge. As a member of the design team, I am asking you to join us, and I’m looking forward to seeing your contributions in our gallery. Clicking on this picture will take you there.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, the last day in 2018. Happy New Year!
