Welcome to the Inky Friends 2018 Stampin' Up Holiday Showcase! We're highlighting some of our favorite sets and hope you enjoy the show!
You may have arrived from Sarah's Ink Spot where she used the Signs of Santa Suite fantastically! I love how she added extra glitter to Santa for a pretty shine!
I chose the Spirited Snowmen set because it is such a cute design. First, I wanted to make it appear this guy was making snow angels. I simply used a little Pool Party Ink and Smoky Slate ink to create movement and put Frost White Shimmer paint over the top. To add shine to the stamped snowflakes on the side, I created an inkpad using a baby wipe and Pool Party then dabbed Frost White Shimmer paint onto the snowflakes each time after reinking the stamp.
For this card, I wanted a very simple design. I used Balmy Blue Cardstock and regular Marker (since there isn't a Balmy Blue Blend). My secondary colors were white and Poppy Parade and Call Me Clover. I used those Blends to color the skating snowman as well as Dark Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate Blends. Just a bit of Frost White Shimmer paint under his feet added needed sparkle.
Finally, I included this frame which displays each of the characters as well as the Buffalo Plaid Background. Frost White Shimmer Paint make the background hills shine. I hope you can see how fun and easy this set was and feel encouraged to order one for yourself!
Now let's continue to Sara's Lily Ink Pad Blog to see her lovely creations with the Alpine Adventure set.
