The stamps just cried out tree ornament to me, and what a fantastic way to get the kids involved with those Christmas preparations.
All I did was stamp the snowman in one of the outfits, coloured him in and cut him out. In the lower section I cut out the middle leaving a thin border (enough to attach the photo!). I mounted him onto the photo then onto some navy card adding the ribbon as a hanger and cut around him leaving a small border.
Ribbon was added for the scarf along with a bucket full of stickles and of course no tree ornament snowman would be complete without googley eyes.
Little lady is going to be busy making these for Grandparents, I think!
For this scrapbook page I stamped and dressed the snowman, coloured him in and cut him out. I then stamped the lamppost again coloured this and cut it out. For the lettering I used Plain Lowercase Alphabet (ref: 1801014a). I made them by stamping one letter and creating and mask for it before I stamped the next. To add the snowmen into each letter, I trimmed the mask of the letters each side of the letter I was working on and added the snowman image. It was quite time consuming and fiddly but well worth it in the end as it gave the page a sense of depth but it was actually as flat as a pancake, so perfect for adding to the album. I then coloured the lettering in, in alternate colours and added a bit of sparkle, I added shadow to the letters with a grey pen.
For the background of the photo's I just randomly stamped the snowman's clothes and coloured it all in and lightly distressed around the edge.
To make it up I chose a matching 12 x12 paper, matted up the photos onto the stamped background then onto two corresponding papers and placed this centrally on the paper. I then added the lamppost, snowman and lettering.
Christmas Count Down
To finish off I covered the background with sticky backed plastic (you could also use acetate!), added the frame, Snowlady and brads. I then stuck all this to the backing cards. Added two eyelets and ribbon! The Snowlady was then glittered and glossed up!
To add the number of days just use a dry wipe pen!
I had soooo much fun using these stamps, I really recommend you check out the Dimension Stamps blog to see what ideas the very talented design team have come up with, as they actually have made some cards hehehe!
