I'm back for our fourth day of sneak peeks for 2RedBananas.com's new line of stamps. This time I did a layout using the Snowman Love set (along with some of the January Journaling Spots). Due to a freakish snowfall in southeast Texas, I actually have snow photos.
I used K&Company's Christmas Cheer paper for the background and drew a line around the edges with a white pen. I adhered another strip of patterned paper with rick rack along the top and bottom. I also adhered Dewdrops along the strip. I painted all of the chipboard with white puffy paint by Tulip and sprinkled Twinklet's Diamond Dust on before puffing it up. The photo layout is actually a collage I printed from Photo Shop with a couple of spots left blank. On the blank areas I adhered patterned paper. I stamped the snowman from the set in various poses, colored them with watercolor pencils, cut them out, then adhered them with pop dots onto each of the squares. I stamped the journaling spot onto patterned paper and cut it out, then pop dotted it onto the layout.
This set was really fun for me because I miss snow (being a displaced Detroiter), and usually never have a chance to use snowmen, snowflakes, etc.
Be sure to visit all of the blogs of the other 2RedBananas' Design Team members and see how they used this cute set of stamps. Leave a comment at each person's blog, then go to the 2RedBananas blog and leave a comment explaining what kind of challenges you would like to see sponsored by 2RedBananas and how often you would like to see them.
