Sunday Stamping With Lydia Fiedler: Angel & Snowy's Bell

One of the many fun qualities about Lydia Fiedler's projects is that she is great at putting her own spin on things, which is reflected in everything she creates.

"I have never been much of a rule follower," she says, "and so quirky comes naturally to me."

Take our 11134MC Angel & Snowy Clear Set (drawn by artist Tammy DeYoung), for example:


For last week's card, she used the Angel Helping Snowy image (0496J in wood mounted). This week, the Angel & Snowy's Bell stamp (0497J in wood mounted) is being featured.

"My favorite style is clean and high contrast," she explains, "preferably complementary color schemes - with lots of white space, and a very quirky twist.

Here is a terrific example of what she means:


Lydia used a Tim Holtz Texture Fades insert and a snowflake embossing folder to create the circular embossed frame, although you could also follow this tutorial on Splitcoast for a DIY version.

Even though the red-and-green combination is traditional for Christmas, I wouldn't necessarily think to use it on an angel and snowman myself. But it definitely makes the image "pop," which is pretty neat:


She colored with ShinHan Touch Twin markers and put ultrafine glitter on the girl angel's hair and both of their wings. Just heavenly!

Smaller cash loans are generally perfect for folks, that get his or her living right from payday cash advance to another, thirty day period right after week. For people with a stable revenue you could count on obtaining one of these lending options if you require it.
