The next few weeks our design team for Create with Connie and Mary will be taking a tour of the new July-December Mini Catalog! This week’s blog hop theme is our Favorite July-Dec Mini Catalog Stamp Set!
Well…don’t know if it is FAVORITE because there are SO many that I really LOVE, but Stampin’ Up!’s Snowbuddy Better stamp set was one of the first on my list of HAD to have! I never pass up a snowman stamp!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Fresh Freesia cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- A 3-1/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Penguin Playmates Designer Paper (FREE SAB) was added towards the top.
- The 2 x 5-1/4 piece of Basic White was cut with the Basic Borders Die and added along the bottom (trimmed to fit).
- The snowbuddies were stamped with Memento Black Ink on scrap Basic White and colored with Fresh Freesia, Pool Party, Balmy Blue, Pale Papaya and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. It was hand-cut and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some Light Pool Party Blends was added to the bottom for shadows.
- The greeting from Snowbuddy Better was stamped on 1-3/4 x 1-3/4 piece of Pool Party cardstock with Memento Black Ink and cut with the 1-1/2 Layering Scallop Circle.
- It was added to a Wonderful Snowflake, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some Wink of Stella was added to the Snowbuddy bodies.
