I absolutely LOVE this stamp set, Snow Buddies. It is a Stampin' Up! Level 2 Hostess set only available in the Holiday Mini Catalog. It just says FUN!
Selene gave us a really cute sketch this week! The minute I saw it, I thought Snow Globe! And what is more perfect than Snowmen in the Snow Globe!
I started with a base of Old Olive card stock, then layered on Real Red. I added a piece of the tiny snowflake pattern in Merry Moments Designer Paper behind the snow globe. At the bottom is a stripe pattern from Merry Moments Designer paper. Above that I wrapped the Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon from Mistletoe Bundle and above that a strip of Chocolate Chip.
I cut the 3 3/4 sized circle on my Circle Scissors Plus out of Very Vanilla card stock. I stamped some small blue snowflakes from Snow Buddies in the background. I also stamped the two snowmen on Whisper White with Basic Brown and cut them out. They were colored with Old Olive, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue Stampin' Write markers. I the bottom of the globe, I tore a random piece of Whisper White card stock and then cut it to the same size circle. I stamped Very Merry from Warm Words stamp set on Chocolate Chip card stock with Very Vanilla Craft Ink, free hand cut the angled sides and used it as the base of the snow globe.
As a last touch, I added some Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds for some sparkly fun!
I hope you check out the rest of the Stamping 411 Operators this week! I'm anxious to see what they did with this sketch! Have a great weekend!
