Once you have visited all DT members' blogs, you will end up at the Humble Pie Stamps blog, where you can register for a chance to win the GRAND PRIZE! Phebe, owner of The Town Scrapper (sole retailer of HUMBLE PIE STAMPS) is generously offering the FABULOUS GRAND PRIZE OF TWO OF THE ADORABLE, JUST RELEASED HUMBLE PIE STAMPS of YOUR CHOICE as well as A SURPRISE ASSORTMENT OF GOODIES!!! Just look at these images! Don't you just want them all and just in time to get those holiday cards ready!

But there's more: Today, as part of our Blop, I'm also offering this awesome prize, which includes 4 stamped images of the soon-to-be-released Snowman, along with a clear snowflake stamp, holographic embossing powder, a few felt snowflakes with blingy brads and blue self-adhesive rhinestones.

I got to play with this adorable snowman and he's just perfect for a holiday card. I wanted to try a few different techniques so my layout is simple. This was a super easy and fast card to put together and one that I will make again as it was a lot of fun. So I created my own DP for this card by using a snowflake stamp inked with frost white shimmer paint and coloured the image with a combination of Copics (Booo, B00, C2, C3, R20, R29, YG11 & YG17), siren red Smooch, glitter and pearls to embellish the Humble Pie Snowman. Felt snowflakes and bling brads are all from my stash. The Let it Snow sentiment is one of the new Humble Sentiments and Happy Holidays is SU.


Here's a close-up with all the bling.
