Hi everyone...I thought I would participate in another Scrappy Moms Tuesday Challenge...I like to whenever I can!!! This week the challenge is to use Life is a Beach and it is themed to fit their brand new stamps that were released Friday, Sun Kissed. I went ahead and ordered the new stamps right away because I had to have them. They are SOOOOO cute.
Anyway, as soon as I saw this sentiment "You make me Melt!" I had this idea brewing in my head and I knew I had to make this card right away. I just got my stamps yesterday but I didn't do any crafting yesterday so when I saw their challenge today I had to get started. :)
I made my own snowman. I took the hippo puddle from Create a Critter. Then just a couple of circles from George. I sized them to look like the bottom half of the snowman was melting. I wanted him to be melted by the sun. I took the sun from Life is a Beach but I only used one of the layers and hid all the face parts. Then I took another circle from George and sized it over the center of the circle, figuring I could get a two toned sun then and have a little bigger spot to create a face. I grabbed the top hat from the turkey on Create a Critter and wrapped twin around it. And I also used a glittery embossing powder to make him sparkle.
I pulled in the lips from Indie Art and then created the eyes using circles and ovals from George that I sized to fit. I wanted one hot sunshine LOL. I used cotton candy stickles on the cheeks and then Yellow Stickles all the way around the sun. Sparkly and pretty.
Other than that I just used a little pattern paper for grass and matted my perfect sentiment!
I figure this is more of a cute card for someone to give to the one they love. It is summery and wintery but it really isn't about the seasons, its the sentiment.
Now head on over to Scrappy Moms and check out the full stamp set, and you won't be sorry. And if you can join in on their great challenge!!!
