Hope you are enjoying a restful Labor Day. Today the Inspired Stamps design team is creating with Christmas stamps. I used one of my favorite stamp sets Winter Ruth. This set comes with several sentiments and different objects for this darling girl to hold. You can find Winter Ruth and all the stamp sets used today in the Inspired Stamps Online Store.
I used an embossing diffuser to leave center area blank so I could stamp Winter Ruth while the outside was embossed with Sizzix snowflake embossing folder. I pulled out the Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and colored in the image. I added some details using white enamel for her fur collar, the snow on the ground and on the tree. I added glitter to the embossed background to make it sparkle. I added some Glossy accents and glitter to the Christmas ornament. Stamped sentiment and made a banner, added some scalloped ruffles at the bottom and voila. I hope you try this technique of embossing around your stamped image.
