Hello everyone! It’s been a bit since I’ve been on here. Today I’m over on the Pink & Main blog switching gears from Christmas to more of a Valentine feel using one of the new stamps from the December release – Hello Winter. It’s got another round of those adorable s’mores snowmen doing adorable things with punny and cute sentiments to go with them all.
As soon as I saw the adorable “couldn’t love you s’more” sentiment I just had to pair it with this guy reaching out for a hug. It also led me directly to my awesome heart cover dies from last year that I’m obsessed with. I decided it would be fun to make a glitter shaker card so let’s do it!
I started by ink blending a white panel with distress oxide ink in spun sugar and festive berries. I spritzed it with water and let it dry. Then I die cut the Heart Spotlight cover die from white cardstock. I lined it with EZ Tear Tape and added acetate to the back. Then I carefully lined the edges and some of the rays with foam strips. Adding strips to the rays adds stability but also makes it like a maze for the glitter to move around so it doesn’t all stay in the same place when it’s shaking.
I used my Magic Anti-static brush to reduce static on the inked panel and also the acetate before sprinkling some raspberry super fine glitter on the acetate side. This way I know the glitter is between the foam strips and doesn’t impede them adhering to the cardstock. I removed the backing paper and added the inked panel to seal it all up.
I stamped and colored my s’more guy with copic markers before die cutting him with the coordinating die, along with those cute hearts floating up. I added foam squares to the back of everything and popped it in place over the large heart.
Next, I inked a scrap of cardstock with more festive berries distress oxide ink and heat embossed the sentiment in white. I used a layered circle die to cut it out and popped it up too.
For finishing touches, I added white gel pen dots to the scarf for texture and Touch of Gloss to the buttons, nose, cheeks are hearts. This way we have shimmer from the glitter shaker and shine from the cute snowman s’more! Best of both worlds together.
I love that this fun stamp set gets you through so many winter holidays and occasions, and them some! It’s so good!
