Sneak Peek Day 4 featuring Snowman Love



It's the 4th day of Sneak Peeks of the new exclusive 2 Red Bananas stamps. They will all be available for purchase February 2nd online here. The store also carries a variety of papers, ribbons, embellishments, inks and more.

Today we are featuring the Snowman Love set which includes several pieces that allows you to make it "snow themed" or "love themed". I chose to use the love theme with the snowflakes that have hearts in the center of them and the "love" sentiment. This is the first time I've used my glue pad. I stamped the images with the glue pad and sprinkled glitter on it. Once they dried, I colored in parts of the images with a white pen and used a brown glaze pen on the stick arms. All the pieces were then cut and assembled with the top hat and the mittens being adhered with popdots. That cool ribbon is from May Arts and it's stock now at 2 Red Bananas here for only .40 a yard! The snowflakes on the base cardstock and "love" were stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed in white. The hearts in the center of the snowflakes were colored in using the Sakura Stardust pen.

If you are participating in the BLOG HOP, please visit the 2 Red Bananas Blog first to get full directions and be sure to visit the rest of the design team sites to see their creations. We still have 3 more sets to post so be sure to come back again tomorrow!

  13. This is so cute! I feel like I keep repeating myself, but all your stuff is so good. I love that you used red paper for the snowman. I love that you used your glue pad and glitter (isn't the glue pad awesome?). I also love that you used the snowflake stamp to make the background paper.
