Snow Stamped

"Snow Stamped"

What you need:
Tube of choice, I am using artwork by Suzanne Woolcott

Font of choice, I used FB Lipgloss
Stamped Word Art (PU ONLY) here
*This may not be used for digi-scrapbooking CU or other tutorials*
Animated Snow here
Graphic Program of choice, I use PSPX2
Animation Shop

Let's Begin!

1. Open a new transparent image
Open all of your supplies

2. C/P the snow blended word art supplied
C/P the black star from the kit
Add drop shadow
C/P a rolled flower

Using your selection tool, circle, drag the circle selection in the middle to "cut" out the center of the flower to create a frame from it
Add drop shadow
C/P the tulle element from the kit behind the frame layer
Re-Size as needed

Animation Process:

4. Open the animated snow inside Animation Shop
Copy the first frame
C/P the frame as a new image inside PSP
Create a new raster layer above the paper layer
Using your lasso tool, trace along the open area of the frame
Go to your flood fill tool and select pattern
Choose your snow image you just copied from AS
Flood fill into the selection
Save as tag1 or however you'd like
Go back into PSP and click the "undo" arrow just until the snow is removed, leaving the "dancing ants" selection active
Delete the first copied image inside PSP from AS
Go back to AS and copy the 2nd frame of the animation
Repeat until animation frames have all been copied.
If you are using the snow above, you will have a total of 19 frames

5. Once completed, Open the Animation Wizard inside AS
Open all of your tag frames
Set speed to your normal setting, I have mine set to 10 fps
Press play and if your happy with the result, save and your done!
