Snowman With Heart


I just purchased some new Grand Spellbinders and decided to use them to make a shaped card.  I used the dies for the white card base and the blue layer. 


The Snowman With Heart image is one of Sparkle N Sprinkle’s digital stamps by Michelle Perkett.  I printed it in black but formatted the image to separate the sentiment.  I colored him with alcohol markers and added some of the new Gypsy Red Velvet Glitter, using a glue pen (see Accenting with Glitter in Tips and Techniques).  Before adding the three little brads, I added some Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter (see Bling Your Brads, also in the TNT section).  When they were dry I sponged the edges lightly with blue ink.  I used more of the Gypsy Red Velvet Glitter around the sentiment and the cute little snowflakes are actually Tear-ific tape on cardstock, die cut with this cute little flower center die.  After cutting them out, I removed the protective layer and add the Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter. 

I am really enjoying these new Velvet Glitters from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  They feel so awesome and have an amazing sparkle. 

Thank you for visiting my blog!!

Adorable card! And my wish list is now getting bigger. Love how you added glitter to the edge of the sentiment.

love how you turned the sentiment around and framed it with a touch of the glitter - genious!

Cute image to boot. Hope he'll become a real stamp one day!
