Warm Winter Wishes!

Hello! Tonight the Gina K Design team (and special guest designers, of which moi is one) are showing some creations with Carolyn King's new Warm Winter Wishes stamp set. This is such a cute snowman set; I absolutely love it and think you will, too!

I chose to make an acetate treat box and coordinating 3 1/4 x 3 1/4" card. There's a great tutorial in the Resources section on Splitcoaststampers.com on how to make these. I'd put in a direct link if I could, but SCS seems to be having server issues and I could not get in when I wrote this post. I filled my treat box with York Peppermint Patties.



I love the fact that you can stamp a couple of the sentiments directly onto the heart of this adorable snowman! The little card is very simple because I wanted the focus to be on the snowman. I colored him with Copic markers; tore the white paper for the snow and edged it with dazzling diamonds; and embossed the background with my snowflake embossing folder.

I'm not sure if you can see it in the photo, but I did stamp the snowflake from this set in Stazon White onto the acetate. Here's a bit of a close up:



And here's a little bit closer view of the coordinating card:



Isn't he adorable??
