The Snowmen Cometh!!

Hello Peeps,

I designed a range of Stitchel Snowmen & Ladies and now have them made into rubber. They are available to buy from The Stamp Connection and also there are a couple of Holly images to go with the snowpeople.

I have made up a few cards using the new stamps.....and here they are!

Bobby Card

I started by stamping Bobby onto plain cardstock using StazOn ink. I then used Prismacolor Premium pencils to colour him in in colours that co-ordinated with the lovely Be Good range from Cosmo Cricket. I added a few sprigs of Stitchels holly, also coloured in with the Prisma's and then popped on a greeting which is also from The Stamp Connection. I added a few dabs of Glossy Accents to accentuate the holly and the buttons on his coat.

Marty Card

For something slightly different, I stamped Marty directly onto those lush papers from the Figgy Pudding range by Basic Grey. I then "paper pieced" the coat, hat, scarf and mittens so Marty is wearing a snazzy jacket and I added 3D foam under the hat, scarf and mittens to add a little depth to the card. The greeting, as before, is from The Stamp Connection and the holly is also the other version of the Holly Stitchel. I used Glossy Accents to highlight parts of the scarf and the holly too.

Gladys Card

Gladys is a lot smaller in size, so she is fab for a small card or ATC or using, like I have, along with larger embellishments. She was stamped and coloured as before and then matted onto more Figgy Pudding papers and then I added a few Prima's in co-ordinating colours to finish the card off. I added Glossy Accents to emphasize parts of her coat and hat and the flower too.

I hope that you all like my new designs, I think they are all so cute!! There are another couple of images that I haven't got around to using this space!! LOL

Thanks for looking
