Spirited Snowmen meet Freshly Made Sketches

Freshly Made Sketches had a very unusual sketch this week. It got me inspired to ink up my new Spirited Snowmen stamp set.

Here is the sketch #358:

Here is my Loving Snowmen card:

These dancing, skating, dreaming snowmen are darling. This set is a good winter set that does not have to be Christmas. I think this one would be perfect for a winter wedding anniversary. What do you think?

Tips for creating the Spirited Snowmen card:

  • Stamp wording and die cut your circle before you run the card stock through the embossing folder. Then you can use the circle for part of your inside sentiment.
  • Color with Stampin’ Up! Blends or Stampin’ Write Markers.
  • Use a very light coating of Tombow glue to fill in the snowmen and sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds.
  • Once you get the image positioned you can glue it down.
  • Layer top piece using dimensionals to give it some dimension.

Do you see the new product I used on this card? Velveteen Cardstock!! It is so soft and smooth. You will be able to order is in November.  Put it on your Shopping List!

Farmhouse Christmas Goes Spooky

Combining Farmhouse Christmas with Spooky Sweet  created this fun & spooky scene. Not sure how spooky it is, but it sure came out cute.

The fence and tree are part of Farmhouse Christmas stamp & dies. The bats, stars and moon are from Spooky Sweets. Do you ever combine several sets to create a card? Combining sets is one of my favorite ways to stretch my stamps and dies.

 Facebook Holiday

I took a Facebook holiday this week. Sometimes FB gets overwhelming and it seems to get me out of sorts. Being off FB freed up extra time to create and cook.

Now that fall is almost here I start thinking about soup. I like to have soup on hand for dinner. After a long day of work (or stamping) is feels great to have dinner already prepared.

Here is a new soup I tried today. Adapted from several I have seen online.
