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!
