Sneak Peeks for Clear Dollar Stamps!!!

For the next four days I will be showing sneak peeks of the November 1 releases of some AWESOME and ADORABLE Clear Dollar Stamps. Today I will showcase Charlie Snowhorse. Isn't he just the cutest snowhorse ever!!! The set comes with Charlie, the tree image, two ornaments, a snow stamp, and two sentiments, too!!
The It's Snowing wheel was stamped on glossy paper using Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. The background sky was then sponged with Ranger Broken China Distress Ink and the trees were stamped with the same ink. The snow was made from torn white paper and distressed with the Broken China ink. A glue pen was used to apply glue over the inked edges and then Dazzling Diamonds was sprinkled over the area. Charlie Snowhorse was stamped with Black Memento Black and colored with copics. I used the same glue pen to add the glue to Charlie's body and then added the Dazzling Diamonds. He was cutout and attached with dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Brown, the background was lightly stamped with the It's Snowing wheel and Bashful Blue ink, a thin ring of glitter was added around the edge, and then the layers were cutout with Nestabilities and attached with dimensionals. I sewed around the background layer and the ribbon was added just because I can't seem to make a card without it!!!

Here's Charlie Snowhorse again, stamped with Memento Brown, colored with Copics, glittered up, cutout, and attached with dimensionals. The background was stamped with Blue Bayou and the It's Snowing wheel and then sponged with the same ink. The snow is a cotton ball spread out and glammed up with a little glitter. All the layers were cutout with Nestabilities and the sentiment was stamped with the Memento Brown. I sewed around the Memory Box paper in the background and added the Blue Bayou and Wild Wasabi ribbon.....I still love those retired SU colors!!! The tree slide and the punched snowflakes finish it off...thanks for visiting today and I will see you tomorrow with more sneak peeks!!!
