Winter Memories: RemARKable Stamp of the Month


Aloha!  This stamp set is a bit out of character for the Valley Isle, but I couldn’t resist the chance to share a blog tour with my favorite RemARKable stampers!  We do have cardinals here – both North American and South American – and if you put on your ruby red slippers, close your eyes and click your heels, you can imagine a little sledding party down Sliding Sands Trail into Haleakala Crater…

  • Winter Memories stamp set
  • Regals Prints Pack Designer Series paper
  • Whisper White, Soft Suede and River Rock card stock
  • Cherry Cobbler Core’dinations paper
  • Basic Black FFIP (Firm Foam Ink Pad)
  • Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Basic Grey and Soft Suede Classic ink refills
  • Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write marker
  • Aquapainter
  • Big shot and Lacy Brocade TIEF (Textured Impressions Embossing Folder)
  • Stampin’ Sanding Block
  • Always Artichoke Seam Binding
  • Crystal Effects
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals

You can’t see the Crystal Effects?  Here, I’ll show you:

There’s a light wash of Basic Grey on the boards behind the sled, and those fat little birds are just waiting for you to look away so that they can swoop down and stuff their beaks with those juicy red berries!!

Now put on your Imagination Caps and let’s picture an ice rink:

 

  • Winter Memories stamp set
  • Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso card stock
  • Early Espresso Core’dinations card stock
  • Be of Good Cheer Designer Series paper
  • Silver Glimmer Paper
  • Basic Black and Crumb Cake FFIP
  • Always Artichoke Classic Ink Refill
  • Aquapainter
  • Clear and Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details
  • Big Shot and Lattice and Wood Grain TIEFs
  • Stampin’ Sanding Block
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Stampin’ Sponge
  • Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding

There’s lots of texture here with the Core’dinations paper, embossing and sponging.  I’ll warn you that tearing the Core’dinations paper especially once it’s gone through the TIEF is kinda like plucking your eyebrows (sorry guys):  it’s really easy to get carried away and then all of the sudden you’ve got nothing left!

Love this set?  It has beautiful, detailed wintery images perfect for watercolor.

  • clear 127937  $19.95
  • wood 127934  $27.95

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure you continue on to see what all the other RemARKables have to share.   A hui hou!

    • Well, Robin, if I ever need ice rink expertise I know you’re the one to call. The nearest rink is on Oahu, not so far as the bird flies but in fact you need to be a bird – or take a plane – to get there!
