Eskimo Kisses

Eskimo Kisses is one of the fun new rubber stamp sets revealed this month from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  After stamping the image onto white cardstock and coloring it with Copic markers, I die cut the rectangle using a Simon Says Stamp die (Stitched Rectangles).  The patterned cardstock mat behind the focal panel was die cut using a Sue Wilson Designs die (Noble Dies - Double Pierced Rectangles - Set B).

Dimensional Glue was added to her ear muffs, coat collar and sleeve, and to the top of her boots.  Dimensional glue was also added to the pom-pom on the snowman's hat.  Then Swan Song tinsel glitter was applied over the dimensional glue.  Once that was dry, I highlighted various areas of the snowman and the snow with a Sakura glue pen and covered the glue with Olaf White glitter.

Falling Snow was added to the snowy scene by using a stencil (Simon Says Stamp - Falling Snow) and Dreamweaver White Embossing Paste.  I layered the embossing paste on fairly thick, and after the stencil was removed, I covered the wet embossing paste with more Olaf White glitter.

For the matting, I added more snow by using a Memory Box stencil (Winter-Scattered Flakes), embossing paste, and Olaf White glitter.  You can really see the dimension of the falling snow as well as the tinsel glitter in the above photo.

A ribbon imprinted with snowy words is the finishing touch.
