Inspired Stamps - Favourite Set


The Inspired Stamps DT are showcasing their favourite stamp sets today.  I had a really hard time choosing just one set.  I've wanted to make a Snowglobe for the longest time, and I think I found a way to do it while showcasing one of my favourite Inspired Stamps set, 1" Snowmen.


This is a set which I've used a lot, on Christmas cards and also general everyday cards.  On my card today, I selected the Snowman with the cute hearts and placed him in the Snowglobe.  To complete the scene behind the Snowman, I added cutouts of the silhouette houses from the set Me and My House, and the snowflakes from Let It Snow.  The houses were stamped using Memento London Fog and the snowflakes with Memento Summer Sky inks.  The sentiment is from Winter Ruth set and I used papers from Echo Park's Winter Park 6x6 pad.


It's a fun card to make, and I hope you try it.  Please click on the links below to discover the favourite sets the Design Team members are showcasing today:


Have a great day!

Great card, I always love all the details you include that give the main image depth. Thank you for inspiring me each week.

Kary - as ever this is so sweet - love your innovative ways of using stamps e.g. the houses at the back of the snowman.
Blessings

Loooove it!! I would have guessed this was your favorite set! But how many times do you see snow where you live, hi hi! Well, you could have built one here today, we had 8 centimeters of snow here today in a few hours!!! Woww!!! Traffic was a mess!! But we're safe and warm at home now!!
Hugs, Wendy
