Yay! It's Scrappy Moms Stamps 1st BIRTHDAY! :)

Thank you for joining me to help celebrate the 1st Birthday of Scrappy Moms Stamps! I can't believe it's been a year since Tammy and I started our little stamp company. Thank you to all our FABULOUS customers - without you it never would have happened!

We wanted to share some love with you all so week we are having giveaways on the Scrappy Moms Stamps blog and on Thursday, Jun 9th we will be having a blog hop! Our guest designer for the month of June will be joining us for the hop - Sandra from 365 Days of Cricut! :)

I made a brand new project for you today using one of my favorite SMS stamps set - The Charmed Life!


I used the Eskimo Kisses SVG file from Lettering Delights and for my igloo and thermometer. I use 2 shadow layers to create the shape-card base. I used lots of Stickles (Waterful and Icicle) to give it some frosty sparkle!

Still, I'm not crazy about how it turned out. Does this ever happen to you? Something seems soooo adorable in your head but just doesn't quite translate onto paper... LOL. :)

Anyhow, thank you again for stopping by! Be sure to visit the Scrappy Moms Stamps Blog and leave a comment for a chance to win a SMS Spring Fling stamp set!


Have a wonderful day!

Very cute- I struggle at times with the same t hing- looks awesome in my brain, but not in reality. But no worries- this looks awesome.

I think it came out cute! But I have that happen to me all the time! I always have ideas swimming in my head. Just getting them to paper can be a struggle sometimes.

Happy Blogaversary!

I think it turned out SUPER cute. But I totally know what you are saying some things turn out cuter in your head and others turn out just as cute or cuter on paper. Awesome job. Those stickles are just the right touch. Hugs- Glora

I know just what you mean about an idea not quite translating to paper. I think your card turned out so cute! Good job! Happy Anniversary!

I think this igloo card is really cute. I do know what you mean, Mel, about when a design in your head doesn't become what you thought it would be. I think this one is a keeper, though! Thanks for the wonderful stamps and inspiration as always!! ~Jen http://happyplaceforjen.blogspot.com/
