Snowman Admiration

Thanks so very much for joining us today for Day 4 of Impression Obsession Week at Stamper's Dream! If you haven't already, please BE SURE to comment on yesterday's post for the blog candy..okay?


The moment I saw this adorable little stamp I KNEW I had to have it! I have so many friends who are firemen, or are married to firemen, and this will be a great and very personalized Christmas card for them!

The stamp is called Admiration . I stamped it on watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed with Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored using Tombow Markers and a damp paint brush. The snowflake is the Martha Stewart Glacial Snowflake punch glittered with Ultrafine Transparent Glitter . Sorry it's so hard to see in my photos. It's so pretty! :-(

The designer paper is from the Li'l Man Paper Kit by Cosmo Cricket. See...it DOES look Christmasey, doesn't it? :-) How DOES one spell Christmasey, anyway? Is that really a word?

The sentiment is Impression Obsession's Merry Christmas . It was stamped on Classic Red Prismatics then cut and embossed with the **NEW** Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio 2 . The ribbon is May Arts Red Silk .

Please be sure to see what the rest of the Dream Team has for you! This is the schedule for the rest of this week:

Today: Tosha , Denise , Laurie , Becca , and me

Friday: Tosha , Silke , Amy and me

More to come tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!
