Heavenly Snowmen and Blog Candy!!!

Here is another card showcasing the one of the new stamps from Treehouse Stamps!! The site is now officially open for business (that is what the blog candy is for). More about the blog candy in a minute, but first the card.

On this card I used the snowman from Winter Memories, including the sentiment. All of these stamps are so cute and very easy for coloring with any type of medium.

On here I used my Watercolor Wonder Crayons from SU! and a blender pen. I didn't start out for a masculine feel to this card, but the colors I chose were going that way!!! So I softened it up with the large circle flower copper brad, organdy and satin white ribbon and small piece of blue embroidery floss.

My colors came from the medium size blue panel as I wanted to try out the Faux Denim technique in the newest Technique Junkie newsletter. So easy to do and I like how this came out!!

My base card is PaperTrey Ink's white, then Creamy Caramel which I ran through my Cuttlebug with the snowflake folder, followed by the Faux Denim piece mounted on Choc. Chip text. and Night of Navy under the main image. The second and third panels are distressed around the edges and I did light sponging around the base card, snowman and the sentiment in Creamy Caramel.

I really like doing the sentiment layers as I feel this really makes the sentiment pop! I did revers paper piercing on the round tab layer and faux stitching on the Brocade Blue circle. Both the second and third panels are up on different size dimensionals for depth.

I used small pom-poms for the hat and his buttons!

Please let me know what you think about this little guy!! He will be off in the morning mail to my vets office for Christmas!! We have had some animal emergencies this year and they have taken great care of them, and us, during those times!!

The sketch I used here is this week's SC on SCS!

I would like the snowman set and I have been to most of the design teams blogs and left comments. The handdrawn look would lend itself to a great doodling stamp set. I like the sayings and the site is easy to get around on. Good work!

Lindsay said...

I think they are really cute. They are different from what is out there. They don't look manufactured like a lot of stamps that are out right now. They have that hand drawn personal touch.

JenMarie said...

Ooooh, CUTE!!! Snowball fight is my fav!!! Love the style of the stamps!

Cindy Vernon said...

Elaine said...

Ann, I've always loved your cards!! You are so great at inspiring and making such CUTE stuff!!

My choice is either set (I love them both). I would like to see a bee set for the future...I posted some friendship sayings like,
"Thanks for BEE-ing my friend",
"I'm glad to BEE your buddy",
and "BEE my Valentine", HapBEE Day to you! hahahaha...I'm corny, I know.
