HIMCR #213 - Any Holiday! August 22nd

HIMCR #213 - Any Holiday! 

Sponsored by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps



I used my image on the inside, it was the perfect size for my 2nd favorite toy that I picked up while at HOOT 2 weeks ago. Stampendous was in the house so I just had to go over and see what I could see and I fell in love with this die set.

 
I saw this die and wanted it but I didn't want to buy the, "go with" items, the stamp and die set they sell so I went back to Renee's Plum Purdy booth and thought on it for a while. Then I went back and asked if I had to buy the, "go with" items and was told that I could use any flowers with it so I snatched it up.
 
This tutorial was a huge help to me: Stampendous Tutorial  and I set to work with the sponsor image as the centerpiece of my Pop-Up.
 
 
 
The papers are from Craft Smith's Christmasville paper pad. All of the snowflake stamps are from my stash as well as all of the sentiments.
 
You get:
(1) pop-up card die
(4) 4 nesting oval frame dies
(4) nesting rectangular frame dies
(3) edger dies
 
I used all but 1 of the edger dies on this card.
 
After printing the, "You Light Up My Life Snowman" stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps on white cardstock, I also printed it onto a piece of light blue paper. I colored the image with watercolor pencils that I picked up while we were at HOOT. The snowflakes are from my stash, they were white, I added the color to them with a blue Spectrum Noir marker and my eBrush.
 
Using the pop-up card die I then used one of the edger dies to give it a fancy edge. I also cut the same cut onto a piece of blue cardstock. Stamped the snowflakes with a dark blue ink and used the oval frame dies on the inside sentiments, and 2 of the rectangular frame dies on the outside sentiment, added some sequins and Stickles. I attached the outer sentiment with foam pads.
