Snow Mail/ Special Delivery!

I have to tell you this story.  When i first started card making, i educated myself on how to color w/copics with two friends..we encouraged each other.  That lead to purchasing digital images which lead to my first Design Team commitment with Digi My World.  That commitment lead to another Design Team (that no longer exists) ...stay with me...that lead to Card Crafter's Circle DT...trust me i am getting to my point.. :0)  On that DT i was honored to work with many sponsors images and one of them happened to be Stamp Art by Kathryne.  Let me say, that she is one of the most kindest, talented and generous people out there.


So my point, I was asked to Guest Design for this month and January for Stamp Art by Kathryne and i am so honored to be asked. Thank you Kathryne!

Stamp Art by Kathryne's blog is here.

Here is the cute image i got to work with..This image is called Snow Mail and you can find it by clicking Here.


 I am trying to keep with the mail theme, so i used my Spellbinders "stamp" die.  I've also used Cheery Lynn's snowflake die set..you get all of these snowflakes and 4 more on one die.

I am still learning the chunky enamel embossing technique, but this time with a twist, i used Stampin Up embossing folder..i think it is called "lattice"..and i am not sure if it is still available..but there are others out there that would accomplish the same effect.

The pinecones came in a bundle at Michaels with the red berries.

Copics used:
snowman- W1, 3, R0000, CB
hat- YG03, 17, 67, R35, 37, 39
scarf- BG11, 13, 18
buttons- YG03, 67
twig arms- E25, 29
bird- R20, 22, 24, BG11, 13, 18
noses-YR12, 04
hat fur/pompom- C0, 01, CB

I used Stickles/diamond for the fur, Extreme Glitter Paint/hologram for the snowman/snow.

I've made several cards using Kathryne's images if you are interested click here and all of the posts will come up for you...

Challenges:
DRS Designs Rubber Stamps Challenge- Glitter it Up

This is a beautiful card, Bonnie. Delightful image (wonderfully colored), and the stamp die was perfect!! You are so right about Kathy. She is most definitely a sweet, generous lady, and always so encouraging. Congratulations on the guest DT -- it is a win-win for both of you.
