Joy, Peace, Love
I love snowmen, so couldn't miss the Merry Monday challenge this week. As soon as I saw the sketch at FMS, I knew which snowman stamp I was going to use. It's an old one by Hero Arts that I bought many years ago to make bookmarks, but think I only ended up making one. Decided to try paper piecing it with my favorite pad by MME (should have bought 2). I use every bit of each sheet & discovered the best way to line up a scrap:
1)Lay the inked stamp face up
2)Lay the scrap over the area you want
3)Cover with scrap paper
4)Use an acrylic block to apply even pressure.
I added Stardust Stickles to the birdie & Frosted Lace to the snowman and spread Glossy Accents with a toothpick on the carrot nose. I used my stamp positioner to be sure the Amuse Artstamps sentiment would look right & to get it in the right spot as this is my last sheet of those dots.
Tim Holtz snowflakes were embossed in opposite corners on the card front. I'm adding it to Pixies Snippets Playground. This is one of those cards
that was just plain fun to put together & I hope it will bring a smile to the recipient & maybe to you! Enjoy your weekend.
