Sweet Stamps- Thank You

The weekly  Sweet Stamps Challenge is Thank You this week.

  I had some fun finally getting out my Technique Junkies newsletter and used the 'On The Side' technique. This is almost a one layer card......
  I also had fun using glittery Embossing Powders- the snowman is embossed using Black Sparkly EP and the silver snowflakes,sentiment and border in Fantasy Silver EP. I ran the edges of the cardstock over the embossing pad and then dipped it in the EP to add another layer of dimension around the snowman panel.
  I used Shades Die Ink- Nassau for the stamped snowflakes and the sponging. I colored the image with Copic markers and added Sakura Gelly Roll pen for added shimmer- Love this pen! It never gives me grief or clogs up....the sparkle is fabulous!
  I finished off the card with a die cut snowflake using Holographic cardstock.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:

Wow on the snowflake, Shelly! Marvelous sparkle and coloring on the snowman, too. The Thank You sentiment is perfect. I have several different snowmen I'm going to use for thank you cards after Christmas. I just think they make such neat, winter cards and I always need "Thank You" cards around that time.
