Meet Mr. Ludwig from In Style Stamps

Hello and welcome to my last post for today and for the July In Style Stamps sneak peaks on my blog.  
All the new releases go on sale tomorrow at the In Style Stamps store and there is also a release party going on at Paper Craft Planet Friday evening, come join the fun, it starts at 7 PM EST!

This snowman is called Mr. Ludwig.  I colored him with Copic markers and cut him out with the Spellbinders Labels 10 die and then matted him on an Oval Scalloped die.  The dots around Mr. Ludwig are from a stamp set made by Waltzing Mouse as is the Christmas Wishes sentiment.  I think this might be the first time I've used the Spellbinders Fancy Tags die too.  I've had them awhile but it hasn't been "quite right" for what I've been working on so far.  The small snowflakes are a punch that I've had forever and it's getting dull, almost time to get out the aluminum foil and waxed paper for it.  The white panel on the front was cut diagonally and each piece put through the Cuttlebug with the Snowflakes and Swiss Dots embossing folders.

Be sure to stop by the In Style Stamps blog today for more inspiration from our design team and other new releases you can't see here!

Jan, love the elements on this card. The half polka dot with the half snowflake embossing adds so much interest to the background. I love Mr Ludwig! The brads and snowflake are perfect. the little pop of color behind the scallop and sentiment add depth.
Fabulous.
