A New Top Note Character

So, I had a lot of fun making all of the Frankensteins for Halloween and then I seen someone had made a Snowman so I had to try it. I used the Top Note Die and Birds and Blooms Sizzlet Die to make this. I also used the 1/2" and 3/4" for his eyes and the big star punch for his nose. I am going to put him on the little white lunch bags for treat bags for Christmas.

Emboss Resist

I haven't fallen off of the face of the earth I promise. I just got really busy with Halloween and trying to finish all the treat boxes I needed.

At stamp camp we decided to start Technique booklets (I will share that later) this was our first technique. It is a very simple technique with a beautiful outcome. You emboss your image first with clear embossing powder. Next you use a sponge dauber or sponge to ink image over the embossed image, you can use classic or craft ink. Once you have the ink all around the image use a paper towel to remove any ink from the embossed image.

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Upsy Daisy

Ink: Basic Gray & Whisper White Craft Ink

Card Stock: Baja Breeze & Urban Garden Designer Series Paper
