Sparkle Snowman Shadow Box

Hi everyone! I’m back today with another project I created using my Sparkles Snowman Happy Holidays Stamp Set. So let’s get started!

I had purchased a small shadow box at Micheal’s that I thought would be a great way to create a home decor piece with. I dug into my scraps of Christmas paper scraps and adhered the patterned cardstock to both the outside and inside of the box.

I cut a piece of patterned cardstock to fit inside the shadow box. Then I placed the snowman image onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Black Ink and before I stamped the image onto the cardstock I placed washi tape over the “boxed area” of the stamp.

I stamped the carrot, eyebrows and eyes onto appropriate scraps of cardstocks and fussy cut each out.

I adhered the eyes, eyebrows and nose to the stamped snowman face. I applied Glitter Glue to the eyes, added a little color to the nose and cheeks before adhering the face in the shadow box. I finished off by cutting out holly leaves from the Funky Festive Thinlits, shaping those and adding a poinsettia and loops of thread to the box.

Sparkles Sparkly Snowflake Slimline Card

Hi everyone! I’m back this month with another card using my Sparkles Snowman Happy Holidays Clear Stamp Set! I would have had this blog post out sooner but came down with a nasty cold that took forever to get over and a wedding album to finish while not feeling my best. UGH! But anyway, I’m back and getting better each day.

I started by placing the snowman face stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inking with Black Ink (waterproof) and stamping an assortment of images onto Cardstock and Watercolor Paper so I could work on projects as I found time. Also some of the images didn’t stamp clean but, no problem, I made them work for each project I created (more projects to come later). A side note I forgot to use the magnet to hold the paper down and that is how I didn’t get a clear image…totally my fault.

This image was one that it didn’t stamp clean so I decided to to use pastels to add “smudges” around the eyes, nose and mouth so the image wasn’t a complete loss. I hate wasting the watercolor and cardstock! I filled in eyes, nose and mouth with chalk pastels and Colored Pencils.

I used the Journal Diecut to cut the card base for a regular slimline card. I folded a piece of cardstock in half and used Washi tape to hold in place on the diecut. I made sure the card was 3 1/2″ across when I placed on the diecut before running through the Diecut Machine. A regular slimline card measures 3 1/2″x 8 1/2″ and will fit into a #10 size envelope. I added a snowflake patterned piece of cardstock, a stripe of patterned cardstock to the card base, matted the snowman image, added Foam Pop Dots to the back before adding to one end of the base.

I stamped the sentiment and matted to a piece of cardstock before gluing both, sentiment and snowflake ornament, to the base. I have a box of these snowflake ornaments that I got for dirt cheap so I use them regularly in various projects. All I do is cut off the “hanger” if I’m going to use it in a project like this.

I forgot to add that I applied glitter glue to the eyes of the snowman and there you have it! Also if you aren’t following Blank Page Muse on their social medias you can find them on:

Sparkles Snowman Happy Holidays Stamp Set Release

Hi everyone! Guess what?!?! I now have a set of stamps I’ve designed with Blank Page Muse!!!Can you tell I’m so excited? The stamp set is called Sparkles Snowman Happy Holidays Slimline Stamp Set.

I designed this in mind with making mini slimline cards but you can do so much more with this stamp set. I used a sheet of patterned cardstock from a 6″x6″ paper pad, folded in half, to create this card but a standard mini slimline measures 3 1/2″x6″. I figured what is half an inch? Plus its a great way to use up some of those 6″x6″ pads that are laying around.

I placed the snowman face and sentiment stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with waterproof Black Ink and stamped onto a piece of Cream Cardstock. I dug out my chalk pastels, Colored Pencils to color in the face and I filled in the eyes with clear glitter glue.

I adhered two strips of patterned cardstock to the base of the card and placed the snowman face off center of the card. Next I cut a snowflake from Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits out of vellum placed and glued slightly off the card…I cut the excess off and decorated with light blue gems. The final step I matted the sentiment and placed Foam Pop Dots to the back before adding to the lower corner of the card. I also inked around the base of the card with chalk ink.

I’ll be sharing more projects with this stamp set later on so be sure to stop back by! Also use code BPMTonya to get 15% off this stamp set along other purchases too. So be sure to head to Blank Page Muse’s website and purchase Sparkles Snowman Happy Holidays Stamp Set.

Blank Page Muse and Cat Lovers Hop

Hi everyone! Blank Page Muse and Her Peaceful Garden are teaming up to do a blog hop and it’s all about cats! This hop is to celebrate cats of all sizes and shapes during the last full week of October because National Cat Day is October 29th. Also the best part Blank Page Muse is one of the sponsors…lots of cat stamps to choose from…wink, wink!

When you have a chance check out all the cat stamps on the websites: Blank Page Muse and I Brake for Stamps.

Since I’m a lover of all things cats I couldn’t wait to create a little card using the close up cat face from the Cats Full Sheet from I Brake for Stamps Site.

My inspiration for this card is my cat Omega. A little info on her…I actually seen her born (runt of the litter) over eleven years ago and she was half the size of her litter mates. She can be a little diva at times but I wouldn’t have it any other way. She LOVES chin scratches, sleeping next to my pillow at night and can be very chatty if she’s hungry. But most important of all she’s even converted my husband into a cat lover. I told my husband when he proposed that she was part of the package deal. Anyways lets get started on how I created my card.

First I placed the cat stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Black Ink onto a piece of Watercolor Paper.

I gathered up an assortment of inks and watercolors and painted the cat image.

I folded a 6″x6″ piece of patterned cardstock in half to create a card base. I cut another piece of patterned cardstock slightly smaller than the base and two strips of cardstock and adhered all to the card front. I added a mat to the cat image before gluing to the card and I finished off by adding flatback pearls down the side of the card. Be sure to stop by Her Peaceful Garden’s blog for details on the hop. You can find the post HERE.

An Aspen Christmas Tag

Hi everyone! You know Christmas is only a few months away right? And since it is my favorite holiday I had to created a little pastel Christmas tag for Blank Page Muse using the Aspen Creepy Cute Kid Rubber Stamp.

I placed the girl stamp onto MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with waterproof Black Ink and stamped the image onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I used an assortment of watercolors and colored pencil to fill in the girl before fussy cutting the image out.

I cut out two, one of each designs, pink and white striped and polka dots tags from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits. I inked the edges and dug out scraps of patterned cardstock to make banners before adhering to the tag along with the girl image.

I dug into my stash of diecuts and added a holly diecut, thread bows and pearl sprays to the corner of the tag. To finish I adhered Pom Pom Trim to the bottom and Hot Pink Ribbon to the top of the tag.
