A Cute Christmas Stamp Set

I used A Cute Christmas Stamp Set to make this Christmas card.  I didn't like the face of the snowman on the stamp, so I added eyes using black marker and by doing this, I changed the snowman's look.  I was talking to my sideline Lauren Gilmore, about the snowman and she gave me the idea to add eyes.  Take a look at the snowman on page 32 of the Hoiday Mini Catalog (on my sidebar) and you'll understand what I mean.  That's the beauty of "make it your own"!   

Also, I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and use a color I don't nornally use, so when I decided to go for the Candy Cane Designer Series Paper, I knew I had to use Garden Green.  I added glitter to the snowflakes, the snow around the snowman, the background, and the phrase.  Yes, I love glitter!  I also used the Circle Scissor to cut the Real Red cardstock background for the phrase.  I first used the circle cutter on the Aviary Card I made last week, and now that I've used it to cut out these small circles, I think I'm finally getting the hang of it. 

Stamp Set: A Cute Christmas.
Paper: Whisper White, Garden Green, Baja Breeze, Real Red, and Candy Cane Designer Series Paper.
Ink: Garden Green and Baja Breeze classic ink pads, Black Stazon, and Garden Green, Real Red, and Basic Black markers.
Other: Big Shot Machine, Northern Frost Decorative Strip, Two-Way glue, Dazzling Diamonds, Real Red 1/8" Taffeta, 1" circle punch, Circle Scissors, Blender Pen, and Stampin Dimensionals.

Thanks for looking and let me if you have any questions!

Aviary Card

Hi everyone!  It's been too long since I stamped anything!  I made this card for a color challenge.  You can see a portion of the colors under the card.  I looked at my SU Color Coach and saw that Baja Breeze and Cajun Craze went together and they matched the colors on the color challenge sheet.  I also love the way Baja Breeze and Old Olive compliment each other, but I'll use those colors another time.  I added Pearls to the card and the one I put on the top of the bird cage is colored using a black sharpie.

Stamp Set:  Aviary and A Word for You.
Ink: Basic Gray and Baja Breeze classic pads, Cajun Craze marker, and Basic Black pad and marker.
Paper: Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze, Baja Breeze, and Elegant Soiree Designer Paper.
Accessories:  Big Shot Machine, Circle Scallop #2 die, Circle Scissor Plus, paper piercer, Scallop Edge Border Punch, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Pearls jewels, and Stampin Dimensionals.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to check out the SU Clearance Rack; increased discounts end on October 18th! Contact me if there's anything you'd like to order!
