Spirited Snowmen Stamp Set

The Spirited Snowmen Stamp Set meets Buffalo Check!  I really like creating my own background here using the Buffalo Check Background Stamp Set, Merry Merlot Classic Ink, Basic Black, and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Markers.  As I mentioned before the possibilities are quite endless.  

I inked up the Spirited Snowmen image with Memento Black Ink, then colored him in with my Pools Party, Shaded Spruce, Pumpkin Pie, and Basic Black (for the buttons).  I only color in around the outside of the snowman with my Pool Party, then obviously colored in his hat, scarf, and ice skates.  Isn’t he the cutest?

I have card details for you at the bottom of this post.

I decided not to add any Window Sheet to my project, and simply let the snowman hold my two 2″ strip pieces together at the top and bottom with Dimensionals.  I really like how he turned out.  I don’t know why sometimes my photos don’t do my projects any justice, but this is one time it sure does not.

When I saw the Spirited Snowmen Stamp Set in the 2018 Holiday Catalog I knew my daughter Monica J. was going to love it, and of course, she did.

I added some Clear Wink of Stella to his pom poms, nose and skates.  It really is super duper cute in person.

  2. How did you put the other colours on the Buffalo Check background?

    • Hey Linda, I used a straight edge ruler and my Stampin’ Markers to create the additional lines on the Buffalo Check stamped image.
