Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks Day 4

Hi everyone!! Today is the last day for the Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks. All the stamps will be available on Saturday, November 1. Today I am showcasing the Snowman Wishes set. It has six sentiments, five snowman images, two trees, and a sweet little bird...what a wonderful stamp set!!
I used the challenge sketch for the long card using Imaginisce dp for the background. The images were stamped with Memento Black and colored with copics. The smaller snowmen were stamped on a separate piece of white cs, cutout, and attached with dimensionals. The sky was sponged with Blue Bayou and the It's Snowing wheel was used to stamp the snowflakes with Blue Bayou. The trees were stamped with Memento Brown and Dazzling Diamonds was added to the snow. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Black and the layers were cut out with Nesties. Punched snowflakes, rhinestones, lace trim, and the satin ribbon finish it off.

Recipe: Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Snowman Wishes, It's Snowing Wheel
Paper: White, Riding Hood Red, Wild Wasabi, Imaginisce dp
Ink: Memento Black and Brown, Blue Bayou
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Copic Markers, Snowflake Punch, Rhinestones, Lace Trim, Corner Rounder Punch, White Satin Ribbon, Nestabilities, Dimensionals

I just can't get enough of these cute little snowmen!!! The It's Snowing Wheel was used to stamp the background snowflakes with Bashful Blue onto Vanilla Shimmery cs. The trees were stamped with Memento Brown and colored with a copic marker. The snowmen and the little bird were stamped on Whisper White with Memento Black set was cut out, colored with copics, glittered up, and attached to the scene with dimensionals. The snow is a scrap of torn designer paper glued to the cardstock and distressed a little with Close to Cocoa. The image layer and the matting layers were distressed with a distressing tool and the edges were sponged with Close to Cocoa, also. The sentiment layer was stamped like the main image with the It's Snowing Wheel, the tree was stamped with Memento Brown turned on it's side to look like a branch, and the little bird was stamped with Memento Black. The clip was from We R Memory Keepers and the background oval layers were cutout with the large oval Nesties. The Basic Grey Figgy Pudding background paper was sewed around the edges for a little texture and interest, the corners were punched with the Tag Corner Punch from SU!, and the fiber came from my stamping buddy, Teresa.

The last project I have for you is a gift box that I made to showcase the It's Snowing wheel. The Bashful Blue cardstock was stamped with the wheel and Night of Navy ink. The scallops were made with the slit punch and attached to the inside of the lid. Ribbon, punched flourishes, snowflakes, and rhinestones complete the project. All the punched items were attached with glue dots. This is really simple but makes a real fun and dramatic gift box.
