Happy Holidays … a little early!


Seems to be a bit early for Christmas cardz, but I just couldn’t resist this adorable face!    He’s one of many awesome snowmen stamps from I Brake For Stamps.    

This is my third holiday season making cardz and I’ve unintentionally gotten quite a collection of snowmen stamps!   I really love using these guys for my holiday cardz.    Soooo, I thought it would be fun share a new one with you each Tuesday for the next few weeks . . . hope you will be able to stop back!



This cutie is called Large Snowman Post  (he actually comes in a smaller size too).   I’ve stamped him onto watercolor paper and colored him with Copics – they say this is not the best idea with Copics since the watercolor paper seems to suck up lots of ink.   I like to do it occasionally, since it really seems to add some nice texture to your image.  I’ve also added some Diamond Glaze to his coal eyes & mouth and the berries on his hat for a little extra dimension and shine.   The gorgeous papers are new this year from Bo Bunny ~ and I do love em!!   

The sentiment is from an older Gina K. Designs set, illustrated by my friend the amazingly talented, Asela Hopkins Christmas Blessings.
