This Snowman is Classic


                                                                               
 Hello!  Today I'm sharing my version of a classic snowman card designed by another Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  Her blog address is bluedahliadesigns.blogspot.com and I have loved this guy since I saw him the very first time a few years back.

The original design was slightly different and several of the tools and embellishments she used to make her guy have since retired so I put my own twist on her creativity, with current products from our Stampin' Up! line.

I'd love to hear what you think about him, and if you create your own snowman, I'd love to see him!

Just comment below and share your pix!  CASEing is completely allowed because it keeps those creative juices flowing and from that new ideas are born!


Supplies:

Stamp set: Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink: Garden Green

Punches: Circle-1 3/4" and 1 3/8"; Corner Rounder (oops! I used to Project Life one, but you can use the one on the Envelope Punch Board); 1/8" handheld; Cookie Cutter Builder

Cardstock: Thick Whisper White cut to 4" X 5 1/4" for background; Whisper White cut 2" X 4" for                       punching your snowman; Whisper White cut 1/2" X 1" for your tag

                   Basic Black cut 3"X 2" for your arms, eyes, buttons and hat (use the Cookie Cutter                               punch to cut hat.  You'll need to trim a bit off the bottom to give it the curve on the brim                       of the hat). I used the Pretty Pines thinlits to cut his arms and then cut off the additional                       branches using my snips. The buttons and eyes all came from the Cookie Cutter punch

                   Pumpkin Pie cut 1/2" X 1" for his nose

                   Real Red cut 8 1/2" X 5 1/2" for card base, 2" X 1/2" (2 pieces for his scarf) and 1/4" X                       4" to punch his hat ribbon (I used the Cookie Cutter punch to cut the ribbon so it had the                     same angles to fit the hat) and gift bow and to cut his gift ribbon

                  Garden Green: use scrap to cut pine boughs for hat decor

Specialty Papers: Be Merry Designer Series Paper cut 1" X 1 1/4" for gift

                             Red Glimmer paper- use scrap to punch decorative balls for gift and hat

                             Dazzling Diamonds
Tools: Pretty Pines Thinlits used to cut the pine boughs on hat

           Paper Snips to curve to glimmer paper for a snowy look

Embellishments: White Thick Baker's Twine cut 3" and trimmed after tied through the sentiment tag

                            Rhinestones: I used the smallest ones for just a hint of bling

Adhesives: Glue Dots to adhere the red glimmer balls and the green pine boughs

                   Dimensionals to pop the Diamonds glimmer paper up as well as the tag and the gift

                   Multipurpose Glue to do the fine adhering

                   Fast Fuse for everything else

Let me know if you have any questions.  I am happy to help!

Paper Pumpkin Follow Up

Wow!  So the kit I photographed in my last post became available for sale yesterday, outside the normal parameters of the "paper pumpkin rules".  Unfortunately for many interested in getting ahold of this kit it sold out in less than 30 minutes. 

On the upside of that info, there is still time to get in on the excitement with the next kit, which promises to be as exciting as this one.  Can't wait to see it!

Just head over to Paper Pumpkin and get started with your subscription so you don't miss out on the excitement!

Pumpkins Are Not Just for Halloween...Check This Out!








Oh my gosh, I just spent the last couple of hours putting together this kit from Paper Pumpkin.  Have you heard of Paper Pumpkin?  It's a monthly kit that comes in the mail and everything you need to make the projects is included in the box.  The stamps are photopolymer/clear and when you order your first kit you'll get the clear block in your box that you'll mount your stamps onto.

When I say you get everthing in your kit, I mean EVERYTHING!!!  All your inks, embellishments, stamps, cardstock, EVERYTHING!

Watch the video below and see for yourself the fun you could be having!  Then head to Paper Pumpkin and get started 😊

Carols of Christmas in Navy

When I think of Christmas colors, the automatic for me is to conjure up something in red and green, but it gets so redundant...and to an extent, boring.

Not that I don't appreciate tradition.  I really do and on any given day when I see red and green at Christmas time, I'm absolutely fine with that combination.

However, there is way more to Christmas decorating than those 2 colors.  I do love the navy and white combination, too.  Navy is such a peaceful and calm addition to the whole holiday theme.  What do you think?

This bundle that I'm using in my post today is so versatile.  If you look further back on my blog to some previous posts, you'll see a similar card and some totally different ideas using this same bundle.

I'll list below the ingredients to this card if you'd like to CASE it.  If you'd like to comment on what you think I'd appreciate it! Have a great day:)

Stamps: Carols of Christmas (146037-CM Bundle, 146036-WM Bundle), Star of Light (142110)

Cardstock: Night of Navy (100867) cut 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4", Whisper White Thick (140272) cut 4" X 5  1/4"

Ink: Night of Navy (126970)

Adhesive: Fast Fuse (129026) and Dimensionals (104430)
