2) cover Image with Memories Resist - this will protect the image from the next steps we take.

3) Continue to stamp and mask image with your Memories Resist. I stamp Mrs. Snow on the right side of Mr. Snow, Snow Girl to his left and masked her with Memories Resist. Then Stamp Snow Boy between Mr. Snow and Snow Girl.

4) after all your images are stamp you can peel off your Memories Resist and see how your images were all protected. So Cool.....
5) I colored in the images with my Faber Castell Pencil - Matted the image on Dark Purple cardstock, then adhere to cardbase. Added Ribbon
6) Flower: I dry embossed white cardstock using Fiskard Texture plate, spray all with Memories Mists, did a direct to paper technique to embossed cardstock. Punch out a large flowers

Molly - Scrapbook Page with Card

There is a scrapbook page I made using all The Robin's Nest products, including the Pattern Paper, embellishments. I did use my own letter and ribbon.
When I teach a scrapbook class, there is always extra paper and embellishments left over from the page we just completed. So I always would teach my student to make a quick card from the left overs. So as you can see that is what i did. Now check out The Robin's Nest website for all their amazing products...

I would be honored if you would be a follower of my blog. If I get 50 followers by my Birthday on March 24th. I will send one of you a free bottle of Memories Mists.... tell your friends...
