This is probably the most fun and rewarding project I’ve done in a while. That’s either a good thing or very sad; I’m not sure which. Rarely does anything turn out so well the first time, but, honestly, this one is hard to mess up.
This is one of our techniques for class tomorrow, and it’s so quick, easy and fun. I created the snowman image with My Digital Studio (MDS) using the Holiday Blitz set. I recolored the sky, hat band and nose, then printed it onto a transfer sheet. (Tip: Be sure to “mirror” the image if it has words, letters, numbers or has to be facing a certain way before you print.) Sadly, Stampin’ Up! doesn’t sell these, so I had to buy them at a *gasp* craft store. My Stephee helped me find what I needed – and a lot of other stuff I didn’t know I needed. She’s great for the store, but really hard on my craft budget!
This time, I actually read the instructions for transferring the image onto Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Muslin Bags, and – surprise! – it works a lot better when you follow the instructions. This came out perfectly, I think. And it really was fast. It took me longer to find where I had stuck the transfer sheets than it did to create the project.
I think this will be a fun little treat for someone – mail carrier, hair stylist, co-worker or neighbor.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day.
