Snowman Cards

Today I have made my version of the snowman half circle card for you.  This is a lovely card to attach to any gift or as a send alone Christmas card.  Most of my materials are from Stampin Up!, however, I have used some from other sources to get the look that I really wanted.  I'll point those items out to you in the instructions below.  Have fun making this card and feel free to send me pictures of your versions so I can see what you've created!

1 - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Whisper White Cardstock (SU)
1 - 5 1/4" x 4 1/4" Tempting Turquoise Cardstock (SU)
1 - 3" Whisper White Circle (SU) I also used my cricut to cut this circle
2 - Basic Black large circles from the Owl Builder Punch SU)
1 - Small triangle from Peek A Boo Peach (SU) cut freehand
1 - 2 7/8" Basic Black label cut with my cricut
1 - 2 5/8" Whisper White label cut with my cricut

Emboss your Tempting Turquoise piece with whatever embossing folder you like, I used one from Hobby Lobby

Use (SU) Flurry of Wishes Stamp set with Basic Black Ink

* Whisper White stamped label to your Basic Black label
* Eyes and nose to your 3" 1/2 circle in Whisper White
* Use self stick washi tape (I used SU Glitter tape) for scarf
* Adhere snowflake embellishment to scarf (from Michaels)

And there you have it! Your card is complete, you can finish it off by putting a white gel pen dot in each of the eyes.  Hope you had fun!


Snow Village Card

This set was the December Paper Pumpkin set from 2016.  I never got around to using it but I pulled it out this year and loved it so I decided to put it to good use.  If you really like this particular Paper Pumpkin set I believe you can purchase them from Stampin Up! here on my Shop Now section.  I know you can purchase some of the older Paper Pumpkins so hopefully this one will still be available.  

I used all the materials from this set to make these cards, the only thing that I used that was not in the set were the stars from the Detailed Santa Thinlets on the black cardstock.  The blue envelopes were included with the set so everything you need is right there in one box. I hope you enjoy these adorable cards!  Happy crafting!

Happy Card

This card makes me smile.  It uses all of the brand new "in colors", the new embossing folder - Celebrations Duo, and the stamp is from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set created by million dollar producer Patty Bennett!  This combination is a beautiful display of all of these pieces and will bring a smile to any recipient.  If you would like directions or a list of supplies let me know I'll post them or send you a message with them.  Hope you all are safe and dry during this Hurricaine!  Happy crafting!


Magical Mermaid Card

I want to be a mermaid, I have since I was a little girl.  I grew up by the ocean and always, always believed they existed!!! When I saw this set from Stampin Up! I knew it would be one of the first ones that I would purchase.  I will use this set over and over for it's beauty and wonder and awesome sentiments.  I encourage you to get your stamp set today and get creative.  You can use the aqua painter and ink pads or the markers or even the colored pencils with the blender pens and have a blast playing with color and texture.  Go crazy, be as free as a mermaid...

And Happy Crafting!
