Mr. Snowman

I know it's only August, but I had joined a challenge swap where someone sent you an image and you had to make a card using that image, then send the card back to them. I actually LOVE snowmen, so it was fun to make it....even in August!

Stamps: Both images by Stampin' UP

Ink: Black Stazon

Paper: This card was made with all miscellaneous papers that were scraps I had. I always feel good about being able to use some of them up.

I also used a couple of snowflake eyelets, little red buttons, a variety of markers, and my large square and scalloped Nesties

Bee Trio

Well, I just got my new scallop border punch from Stampin' UP and wanted to use it right away because I couldn't wait for it to arrive! The bottom scalloped row on this card was done using the punch. This card was made for my neice, Melanie, who was recently in an accident. I don't suppose the card will make her feel any better, but hopefully knowing it's being sent with lots of love and healing wishes will.

Stamp: Bee Trio by Stampendous

Ink: Black Stazon

Paper: Making Memories designer paper,watercolor paper, Lovely Lilac

I also used my Nesties around the main image, 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon by SU, white brads, 1/2" circle punch, Diamond Stickles for the wings, various SU markers, and the Spots & Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. And let's not forget the new SU scallop border punch!
