Well a few of you will know that I am good friends with David and Brenda Rose from Craft Obsessions and whilst there a couple of months ago, David took a call from the Editor of the Craft Stamper Magazine. It was relating to the set of stamps I have used in my cards. She asked if David and Brenda would sponsor one of the prizes in the draw and David offered this set of stamps. While he was on the phone he asked if she would like any sample cards to go with the stamps and she said YES....so guess who got to take a set of Inky Antics Stamps and a whole pile of goodies home and play !!! You can now see the article in January's Copy of Craft Stamper which is out now.
Here are the cards I made...
He is just the cutest little bloke, I have raised the top part of him on foam pads and the part that touches the ice-block I have stuck down so he looks like his arms and legs are off the ice !
The next card I made was bit more ambitious...I have used the paper piecing technique and hung my little snowman in his stocking in an aperture for maximum effect...
Colorful Christmas Papers from My Minds Eye which I think go beautifully with the quirkiness of the stamps.. another couple of close ups for you -
The next card was made using a technique I found on Split Coast Stampers for a pop up card....
and is made using a folding technique which can be found Here I think it's really effective and simple to make.
Here is a side view and a rear view.
It's always nice to have a nice rear end.....!!!!!
The snowman is actually a single man, but because they are clear I have managed to join them up and make them look like they are holding a string of snowballs. The rosette is made using the new Blossoms Two set of nesties. with a smattering of crystals and glitter.
