Let it Snow

Hello friends. So about this time every year we seem to be melting from the awful heat. Although we haven't been in the triple digits to many days just down the road in the big city they have seen them for many many days. The only real places to be in this heat is inside with the AC blowing or in the swimming pool. Sometimes even that is too hot. 
So we all start dreaming of winter, what little of a winter we get anyway. We start wishing for snow that we never see and building snowman. 

So today I pulled out Snowman Love Clear Stamp Set
I stamped the images on a piece of Kraft cardstock and colored the images using my Prismacolor Pencils.

I adhered the card front on to a white card base using my ATG.



I have to say this is going to be one of my favorite stamps for the winter months.

Hope you enjoyed my post today.
Have a wonderful day friends.

A Sparkly Tiara

Hello friends. I am so excited to have this stamp set in my hands right now. It has been on my list for awhile and I finally got it. :) It is called With Some Sparkle

I started off with a piece of watercolor paper and did my favorite smooshing technique with some Peerless Watercolors. I then heat embossed the sentiment using Ultra Fine Antique Gold embossing powder from Simon Says Stamps.


To finish it off I matted the piece of watercolor paper onto a piece of Stampin Up Melon Mambo Cardstock and then added a few hot pink sequins to finish it off. I adhered the card front to a white card base. 


I think this has to be my favorite sentiment and I think I will be stamping it in my planner a few times. 

Hope you enjoyed my post today.
Have a wonderful day friends.
