Wow, where to begin.....lots and lots of new stamps!

Michele at Purple Onion Designs has been one BUSY woman the last few weeks and has put together an AMAZING set of new release stamps.  The design team has also been busy putting together some awesome projects with them---check out the POD blog!  All of the new release stamps are in the store in the What's New section.

So let's start with some of the new Stephanie Ackerman designs.  I haven’t been able to put down the new doodle frame stamps since they showed up in my mailbox J.  In addition to these cuties there is a new set of "kids" stamps and some soon to be released "village" stamps (see the POD blog for a little sneak peek).  I also noticed on Stephanie's blog that she's giving away some of the new check it out.

Today I’d like to show you a simple one layer card (a pretty rare type of creation for me LOL!) using the new snowman stamp.   Scroll down below the photos for the full instructions and supply list.  Thanks for stopping by and see you soon with lots more projects using the new stamps.

1.       Stamp the snowman onto a piece of kraft Copic friendly cardstock and colour the image with Copics and a white Koh-i-noor pencil crayon (this brand of white pencil crayon works awesome on darker papers!  You can use Gamesol or baby oil to blend if needed but I found on this brand of cardstock that it’s not required). 
2.       Mask the image and stamp the sentiment all over card base in brown/kraft toned ink. 
3.       Die cut two strips of scallops out of white vellum paper and embellish with foam snowflake, wood button and twine (Note:  I slightly distressed the white snowflake so that the white wasn’t to stark)
4.       Distress edges of card base with light brown ink.

Ink:  Distress ink, Memento Tuxedo Black
Papers:  Gina K kraft cardstock (Copic friendly!), white vellum
Accessories:  Dienamics scalloped die, Darice foam snowflake, twine from the Twinery, wood button, Copic markers, Koh-i-noor white pencil
