For my sample today I used the new Sparky the Snowman Cling stamp set. I love how the new cling stamps stamp. I stamped the snowman in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on X-Press It! Blending card and colored it with Copic Markers (hat/broom stick: E57, E59, E49, broom top: Y23, Y26, Y28, E33, Cardinal: R08, R27, R29, R39, YR24, C7, Scarf, Mitten: Rv10, RV13, RV14, Jacket: BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18, Snow: B0000, B000, B00, Trees: YG63, YG67, G28). I colored over the snow with a clear Spica pen and cut out the snowman.
I used the largest of the three JustRite Stampers Acrylic blocks and inked it up with Spun Sugar, then the edges with Worn Lipstick Distress ink. Next I sprayed the block with water from my Mini Mister and then stamped it on a 3 3/4″ x 4 5/8″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. Snowflakes from the Sparky set were stamped over the background with Spun Sugar ink. The layer was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Neenah Canyon Brown cardstock.
The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Core’dination cardstock folded in half. The sentiment is also from the Sparky set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the left hand side of the background. Sparky was adhered over the background in dimensionals. To finish the card I added two small snowflake cut and embossed with the Snowflake Borderabilities. They were topped with Dew Drops.
This background technique has been popping up all over the internet. Lydia told me about it first after she had made a card with it during a SCS shoe box swap from Lisa Spangler. I thought it would be fun to have a tutorial for it on Splitcoast. You can check it out here.
