October's Stamp Of The Month HOP

Another month has flown on by! ALREADY!!
I am still in shock over this....but with the end of a month means the start of another

If you have arrived from Adeline's Blog then you are on the right path...
If you have just begun, then just HOP right in and begin where you on Kristie's Blog!

This month's Featured Stamp Set is called

This is a fun and whimsical set of 12 images available Oct 1-31st only!

Here is what I created using this stamp set:

I only used the Snowman Image on this card. I LOVE Snowmen and couldn't resist! I like how the background paper can resemble snowflakes if you use your imagination.

Techniques used:
Paper Pieced the Snowman's Scarf by stamping the scarf area of the image onto patterned paper of choice. Then cut out just the scarf. I stamped the full image onto my project piece. Glue the scarf in place...I used 3-D Foam Squares to make it stand out more. I also did this for the band on the snowman's hat. Liquid Applique on the snowy bottom of the image. Just squirt out the Liquid Applique where you'd like to see it. Heat until "fluffy" with the Embossing Gun.

Supplies used are:
Magnifique Level 2 Paper Packet
Pacifica Stamp Pad
Chocolate Stamp Pad
Colored Pencils
Liquid Applique (snow)
Licorice Opaques (buttons)
3-D Foam Squares
