STAMptember 2020 | Skating By To Say Hi

Hello there and happy 15th STAMPtember! As part of the STAMPtember collaborations, Simon Says Stamp is teaming up with a huge amount of different brands to bring a new stamp set every day. Today is the turn of Clearly Besotted. This set is exclusive to Simon Says Stamp and will not be restocked, so if you want one, do grab one while you can!
Unfortunately, the stamp set didn't arrive in time for me to use it, but Clearly Besotted did kindly send over the digital version, so that I could still play along! I don't have the best printer, so I apologise if you see any smeared lines!

I started off by taking three of the images from the Clearly Besotted Skating Around Stamp Set and coloured them using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area). I then fussy cut them out using scissors, but there are dies available as part of the bundle.
I then took a panel of white cardstock and drew in ice at the bottom, followed by trees and a sky at the top. These were drawn and coloured using Copic Markers. The panel was added to an A2 white card base with foam tape. I then added in lots of snow using a white gel pen. The sentiment was cut out using a Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Label Die and added to the card with more foam tape, as well as the critters.

COPIC MARKERS: Cat - E08, YR27, YR14, YR24, YR23. Dog (bottom) - W5, W3, W2, W1. Dog (right) - E59, E57, E55. Scarves - V17, V15, V12. Trees - G29, G46, G43, G82. Sky - B06, B04, B02, B01, B00. Ice - BG10, BG01, BG000, BG0000.
The Clearly Besotted Skating Around Set comes as a stamp set on it's own, or as a bundle with the die set also. As mentioned, it is exclusive to Simon Says Stamp and is likely to sell out quickly. So be sure to grab one quickly if you want one!
