Stamps and Smiles Release Day 4 and new sketch challenge

Happy Thursday! Today is the last day of the releases for Stamps and Smiles new digi release!

Don't forget, tomorrow Friday December 10th from 7pm-8pm CST is the release party and blog hop! It is sure to be a lot of fun!

The last set is called "Wishing you a Toasty Christmas" This set has a lot going on! It has 11 images! So I decided to use only 1 of the images for my sample today.....

I just love this image! I enlarged it quite a bit, colored it with my Copics and then added those cute buttons over the little ornaments to give it a 3-d look. There are a lot of very fun images in this set, with a lot of possibilities!

Now, for the weekly sketch challenge at Stamps and Smiles.....

For my card this week, I wanted to showcase the versatility of the Stamps and Smiles I decided to use the little face stamp from the "I love Snow" works perfect on the new snowman from the Snowfriends Cricut cart.

I cut the snowman and his accessories out at 4 inches, then stamped the cute little face and added some ink around the edges. I tore some white paper and added some blue ink around the torn edges and layered to look like a snowy hill. I also punched out some snowflakes with my MS punch and added some MS glitter and a little pearl in the center of each.

I just love this card, and how the little face stamp worked so perfectly on my snowman!!!! I hope Jennifer comes out with some more of those cute little faces for more of my Cricut people!!! (hint, hint)

Please stop by the Stamps and Smiles and check out the other design team members samples today!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for looking!
