Fun Friday with Sami Stamps DT! Featuring "Snowflake Dancing" image tutorial!

A message from Sami:

Hi everyone!

I am happy to let you know that there are going to be a few changes here at Sami Stamps! 

In an effort to spend more time with my family, there will be one release every month on the First Friday of the month. Our challenges will remain the same. 
You can find the current challenge by clicking here

For the remainder of the month you will be hearing from my awesome DT who will be highlighting their favorite Sami Stamps images and posting new inspiration every Friday!

From DT Grandma Bonnie:
Just wanted to say Hi, and show you something i created for you this week.  I am going to show you how i changed out this image to have a tulle skirt! 

I am using image, Snowflake Dancing and you can find this image easily by clicking here! Or you can find her by clicking here in the Etsy Store.


 Let's get started with the "image" tutorial:

1. Color up your image.
 I have used Copic colors, E000, 00, 11, 21 for the skin;  E50, 51, 53 for the hair; RV21, 23 for the cheeks, scarf & pants; W1, 3 for the sweater.  

2.  I fussy cut out this image.
3. Some extra supplies, a small piece of pink tulle, 1/8" double sided tape.  You will need to cut the image in half at her waist to add the tulle skirt.



4. Adhere the tulle in two layers using the double sided tape on the back of the image.  I just gather it and set it down on the tape.  I do that twice.

5. Now let's add some foam tape to the back of the image
6. Create your card and add the legs first.
7. Add the top half and decorate your image if you like.  I have added, Stampendous Shaved Ice (glitter) to the sweater. 




  I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.  
Each Friday our DT will be sharing and it will always be a "FUN" surprise!

New Release "Snowman Friends" and Sami Stamps Challenge #45



Hi everyone!

I am happy to let you know that there are going to be a few changes here at Sami Stamps! 

In an effort to spend more time with my family, there will be one release every month on the First Friday of the month. Our challenges will remain the same. 

For the remainder of the month you will be hearing from my awesome DT who will be highlighting their favorite Sami Stamps images and posting new inspiration every Friday!


And we are happy to welcome Sami Stamps Challenge #43 winner 
as a guest designer with us today! 
"I would like to say thank you very much to Sami for giving me this beautiful digital stamp for me to use on my card.  I really enjoyed making my Christmas card, using the gorgeous Frosty Dancing Friends digital stamp. 

Here’s a little bit about me – I live in the North West of England with my lovely Hubby and 2 fabulous grown up children, along with our beautiful big bundle of gorgeousness, Mutley, our black Labrador dog, who brings so much fun to our household.

 I have been paper crafting since 1998 when a friend introduced me to the world of decoupage; I fell in love with card making and very quickly became addicted to my hobby... The best thing though was opening my Blog ‘Diane Louise's Favorite Cards & Gifts’ and finding Blogland and challenge blogs, which inspired me to try new techniques and styles of cards. I have made so many lovely crafty friends along the way.   I own so much crafty stuff now that we really do need to move into a bigger house :o)   Crafty Hugs"

Design Team Examples: "Winter Showcase"


Hello! Hello!

I've decided that this Christmas season I needed to be better on working on spending time with those I love. Because of this, there will be no new releases until January.

However the Sami Stamps Design Team members Grandma Bonnie and Deanne have created some wonderful winter inspiration to tide you over until the new year!
