I decided to play along with 2 of the Splitcoast challenges and came up with this card. The technique challenge was to paint your image with stickles and the color challenge was red, white and gray/silver so I combined the two. My adorable snowman from the newly released Snow Special stamp set by Sweet N Sassy stamps was "painted" with candy cane, star dust, and silver stickles. The snowflake strip at the bottom was stamped in red ink with the brand new Snowflake Background stamp. The white background panel was embossed with my cuttlebug polka dots embossing folder. I added silver pearls for the "buttons", in the scallops, and in the corners.
here is a closer look at the sparkle
Sweet N Sassy stamps just released 9 new stamp sets on January 1st and they are all just fabulous! There is also an awesome stamp set gift with a $25 purchase sale going on now that you will want to take advantage of. Along with the new stamps are some cute new digis that are perfect for Valentine's day which is just around the corner.
