Let it Snow....

This is the card I made for my Christmas cards this year. Using some Stampin' UP designer paper, along with doing some embossing with the Cuttlebug snowflake folder, it created the entire background. I just offset it with a piece of Stampin' UP's red grosgrain ribbon.
Stamps: Big on Christmas
Ink: Black Stazon
Paper: Real red,Whisper white, Always artichoke
Various Stampin' Up markers were used to color in that cute little snowman and fill in the letters.

Holiday stamped gift

As much as I love making cards it's fun to occasionally make other things as well using stamps. This is a candle I stamped as a Christmas gift for my daughter. Don't you think it looks perfect sitting on the table in it's berry wreath ring?
Stamps: Unknown manufacturer
Ink: Black Stazon
Also used were various colored markers, tissue paper and a heat tool.

It's Snow much Fun!

I needed to make a card for a "snowman swap" and thought how perfect it would be to make the card using these little guys having some winter fun. The background was made using the Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder with white pigment ink sponged on the snowflakes.

Stamps: Snowy Play
Ink: White, black Stazon
Paper: Brilliant blue, Whisper white, Ballet blue

Also used was the ticket punch, royal grosgrain ribbon, blender pens and various watercolor crayons.
