Directions:

  1. Snap Design Wheel into Jumbo Handle. Ink the wheel by rolling it across the Arctic Deep inkpad. Working from the bottom center (doesn’t have to be exact) roll your wheel back and forth until there is no more ink on the wheel. Re-ink the wheel on the inkpad and roll again. Migrate and manipulate the image so that you end up with many color values of your ink in and along the stamp path. Repeat across the page as shown, rolling right and left. (This is Cathie’s “Roller Smoosh”, a loose and fun technique that can be done by anyone.) Edge the piece with black marker and ruler; draw border with black marker and ruler 1/8 inch inside the edge as shown.
  2. Ink the “Snowbody” stamp with Wicked Black. Following the manufacturer’s instruction use the Position It Tool to stamp the image onto a 5 ½” x 3 ¾” piece of embossable window plastic. Let image completely dry. Lay a large enough piece of tape sheet to cover the entire image. Remove the top protective layer and cover with micro-fine transparent glitter.
  3. Add color to the image with Smooch®. Let image dry completely. Use your Position It to realign and re-stamp the “Snowbody” exactly on top of original stamped image with Wicked Black. This will pop the detail back into the project. Let image dry completely. Use craft knife to trim out the window for your photo. Edge the piece with black marker and ruler.
  4. Run your ribbon across top of Arctic Deep ink pad to custom color it. Iron ribbon between two sheets of newsprint to heat set.
  5. Apply a piece of tape sheet to a 5” x 6” wide piece of white cardstock, use a piece that covers the cardstock entirely, DO NOT REMOVE the protective backing. Use Big ShotTM to create snowflake die cut from the covered white cardstock following manufacturer’s directions. Remove protective backing and burnish Winter Frost glitter onto snowflake die cut. Repeat this step until you have three glittery snowflake die cuts.
  6. Apply a piece of tape sheet to the 2” x 3” piece of white cardstock. (Use a piece that covers the cardstock entirely.) Remove protective backing and burnish Winter Frost glitter onto piece. Ink just the words “There’s just Snowbody” with Wicked Black and stamp onto glittered cardstock. Use the Position It to over stamp the image with Wicked Black as many times as needed to achieve the depth of color you desire. Trim the piece as needed to center the sentiment. Edge the piece with black marker and ruler.
  7. Apply a piece of tape sheet to the 2” x 1 ½” piece of white cardstock. (Use a piece that covers the cardstock entirely.) Remove protective backing and burnish Winter Frost glitter onto piece. Ink just the words “like you” with Wicked Black and stamp onto glittered cardstock. Use the Position It to over stamp the image with Wicked Black as many times as needed to achieve the depth of color you desire. Trim the piece as needed to center the sentiment. Edge the piece with black marker and ruler.
  8. Assemble the page as shown with tape runner and foam squares. Treasure that “Snowbody”!!
