RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour: Best of Snow

Hello from the snowy mid-Atlantic!  It is flurrying here again, so our blog tour featuring the "Best of Snow" stamp set is perfect timing!

Best of Snow
#134387  $14.95
I just love all of the images in this set and I had fun creating these projects!  My first card is for my hubby for Christmas:

I think this little hedgehog and snowman are adorable, don't you?  I colored them with Stampin' Write Markers and Blender Pens then added a little Dazzling Diamonds to make the snow sparkle.  The greeting is from the Christmas Messages stamp set (#131790 $28.95 Wood Mount or #131793 $20.95 Clear Mount).

My second card features the brand-new stamp that comes with this set:  the "Let It Snow" stamp.

I stamped the snowflake in Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, and Crumb Cake ink onto a piece of Very Vanilla then sponged the edges to give it a vintage look.  I stamped the "Let It Snow" stamp in Always Artichoke onto Very Vanilla then punched it out with the new Bracket Label Punch (#132153, $15.95).  A little sponging and pearls give it the perfect vintage look!

My final project is a gift tag.  I used the image of Frosty (one of my all-time favorites from years ago!) and the "To:  From:" stamp from the Tags 4 You stamp set.  I stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White then cut with the Deco Labels Framelits.  I added a larger layer cut from Cherry Cobbler, then another larger layer cut from our Season of Style Designer Series Paper.  I wrapped some Season of Style Designer Washi Tape around the sides of our Kraft Gift Box, then added some of our Cherry Cobbler 3/4" Chevron Ribbon to complete the look.  Easy-peasy gift wrapping for this busy time of year!

I hope you enjoyed these projects and now it is time to see what Melissa Bolinger has created

Stay warm!

RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour: Spread the Joy

Hello, and welcome to another RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour!  This month, I decided to use the "Spread the Joy" stamp set. 

Spread the Joy
#134781  Wood Mount  $25.95
#134784  Clear Mount  $18.95 
Spread the Joy, by Emily M. from the Stampin' Up! home office, is the first winning stamp set from In With You, our new stamp set design challenge beta program.
In April, Stampin' Up! employees were given the challenge to create a "bucket list" stamp set. Emily "wanted to make a set that could be versatile and usable for lots of different things." Employees fell in love with her design and voted the set to victory!
Stampin' Up! will be running ongoing contests and would love your participation! Join the fun at
Here is the card I made with this fun stamp set:

I stamped the image in Elegant Eggplant ink, then used a Blender Pen to add inks of several colors to highlight the cute lettering.  A layer of Elegant Eggplant card stock helps it pop off of the Whisper White panel that was embossed with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I added some Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon, White Baker's Twine, and a small Vintage Faceted Designer Button for more texture. 

I hope you enjoyed this card!  Now, it is time to see what Melissa Bolinger has created with this fun stamp set!  Just click on the link

Have a great Sunday!  We are expecting some winter weather today here on the east coast, so I will be enjoying the blog tour with a hot cup of cocoa.  Yummy!
