Loves Rubberstamps- Sensational Sunday Inspiration 2/17

Good Sunday Morning,

I hope your weekend is going well and that you enjoyed Valentine’s Day with your loved ones.  Today I am back with a creation for Loves Rubberstamps.  I have done way more Valentines cards this year than I ever have.  I am ready to start using some colors other than pink and red.  So here is one with still a little bit of red, but also some green and browns.

I just love snowmen and what a better time to get some more Christmas cards done. I am determined not to be rushed next year at the last minute.  So you will likely see some Christmas cards all year.  For this one, I have used Kraftin Kimmie Stamp, A Cup of Cozy Wishes.  I just love his little skirt and skinny legs.  I have colored him with copics.  The image was stamped with memento ink in tuxedo black and the sentiment with rich cocoa memento ink.  I had printed off the directions to a center step cards some time ago, but when I tried to make one, it did not work for some reason.  I set it aside.  But today, I can say I accomplished the center step card.  I like the way the image looks on this style of fold.  The image was finished off with some sparkle tinsel by American Crafts.  The background papers are Simple Stories Handmade Holiday. I also added part of a crocheted doily and a button to finish it off.

Copics used:
Sweater/Boots:  E21, E25, E27, E39
Scarf:  E50, E53, E55
Skirt:  YG93, YG95, YG97
Snowman:  W00, W1
Cup:  E50, E53, Y97, R89, R27

The inside sentiment is by Brother Sister Designs.
