For the next couple of weeks I will be highlighting some of the retiring Stampin’ Up! stamp sets and some of my own personal retiring sets. Let’s start with my favorite snowmen – Snow Much Fun.
Here is the card I made using a few other retired products: Snowflake Punch, Jewely Tag Punch, Tiny Tags stamp set.
The card base is Island Indigo, layered with Calypso Coral. I stamped my snowman in Black Staz-On and used my markers to color him in. I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the edges of the snow. The card base is embossed using the Stripes Embossing Folder. Keep Thinkin’ Inkin’!
I have to admit I usually don’t go for a set like Jolly Bingo Bits, but this set just seemed like it would be great for tags and quick accessories, with its variety of images.
I found out how quick and fun using this set actually was. You can always click on my card below to enlarge the photo to see all the details (and my stamping mistakes) more clearly!
I chose Cherry Cobbler for my card base. I then pulled out the packet of Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack from the Holiday Catalog and chose my designer paper. Next came the scraps of Night of Navy, Garden Green, Chcolate Chip and Cherry Cobbler card stock. I punched out one of each color using the Postage Stamp Punch. I stamped my Jolly Bingo Bit images in the corresponding ink on Whisper White card stock and used the 1″ Circle Punch to punch them out.
The Whisper White card stock snowflake was run through the Big Shot using one of our retired snowflake dies. I attached each image to the postage stamp and then attached them to the card using Dimensionals.
Now for the fun part! Out came my Rhinestone Basic Jewels and my Sharpie pens. I colored the rhinestones using the Sharpies — Rudolph’s nose with red, blue for the snowflake, and green for the Christmas tree.
I stamped “merry” from the Tiny Tags stamp set in Black Staz-on on Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the Jewelry Tag Punch. I attached the tag to the gift using a Mini Glue Dot and then placed the Rhinestone Jewel on top.
Hope you will enjoy coloring your Rhinestones to add some bling to your next project!
