Snowman with Skates- Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps New Digi Release
Hi Again Friends!
Woohoo! Today, Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps is releasing several new digital (“digi”) stamps and this is the second card that I created with a few of the new release digis as well as a traditional clear stamp set (please see this post for my first card using Snowman's Gift).
This Clean and Simple (CAS) card showcases the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (SNSS) Snowman with Skates Digital Stamp along with the sentiment from the Snowman Soup Sentiments Digital Set and actual ink stamping with the Winter Blessings Clear Stamp Set. I think this snowman is so cute with his skates and cocoa mug, don’t you?
I also incorporated the CAS356 “Some People Are Worth Melting For”Challenge along with the SC574 Sketch Challenge – both at Splitcoaststampers’ (SCS) for the layout.
If you have not visited the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps (SNSS) site or the SCS galleries yet, I hope you will find time to do so- fabulous samples from all!
Open a Word Document and insert the Snowman with Skates Digital Stamp image along with the sentiment image from Snowman Soup Digital Sentiments and re-size as needed (click herefor a fabulous video tutorial from Korin Sutherland, owner of SNSS on how to re-size and crop digital images in Word).
Print the images out onto Whisper White cardstock and color with a water brush and markers.
Mask the snowman and sponge Pool Party Classic Ink around the “sky” and stamp the Winter Blessings snowflakes with Pool Party Classic Ink as well.
Use a Black Marker to draw the horizon line, punch out the image with a 2 ½” Circle Punch and mount onto a circle punched from Island Indigo cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Darice® Snowflake Swirl Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Island Indigo cardstock.
Add the two strips of ¼” Stitched Island Indigo Satin Ribbon and mount onto the Pool Party card base.
Stamp a few snowflakes from Winter Blessings with Pool Party Classic Ink over the sentiment, trim and create the banner points by hand or with a punch. Create banner points into a scrap piece of Island Indigo cardstock and mount behind the sentiment.
Mount the Snowman with Skates digi image along with the Snowman Soup Digital Sentiment onto the card front to the card front using dimensional foam.
Paint the wooden snowflake with Titanium White Acrylic Paint and mount onto the snowflake image, add the Pearl to the center of the snowflake to finish off the card.
