Snow Much Fun

Pinned Image

I just found this one on Pinterest. Beautiful! I am going to start making 5-10 Christmas cards a month so I don't have such a crunch next year. This one by Bonnie Klass at bon2stamp is a keeper! She used Lovely as a Tree and Snow Much Fun

Top Note Snowman Card

Top Note die, circle punches, Northern Frost strip die
You can make this cute guy using your Top Note die and your Big Shot. It isn't too late to send a snowman card. It hasn't even snowed yet!

Thinking Out of the Box!


I do this with circles. Why didn't I think to do it with shapes?? Great idea!

Butterfly Punch

Some cards don't require much stamping. This one is just our beautiful designer paper called Summer Smooches, the new butterfly punch, the scallop oval punch, and the large oval punch. The words are from Petite Pairs. Don't forget, stamp then punch. It is so much easier than punching then stamping. The butterfly bodies are punched flowers from Itty Bitty Shapes with the Champagne Glimmer Paper. It really makes the butterflies sparkle! (Daffodil Delight and Whisper White)

Snowman Tea Light

This little guy turned out precious! The base is a tea light so his nose lights up. I made a bunch for a craft show. One lady came and bought them all. Quick and cute!

1. Punch a circle from the itty bitty shapes pack then  punch a larger circle around that using the 1-3/8 circle punch.
2. Use a 1/4 punch and basic black paper for the eyes and mouth. It is easier to decorate it before you slide it over the nose.
3. Glue it on the base.
4. His hat is the XL oval punch cut almost in half. The brim is made with the large oval punch by punching once on the edge of the paper then punching above that.
5. Glue the hat and brim together then use the lattice folder and your Big Shot to add the pattern. Glue this on above his eyes.
6. Cut the ball for the hat out of red glimmer paper using the flower from the itty bitty shapes punch pack. Glue it on.
7. Add a red scallop to the back. It has a hole punched out where the light switch is.
8. I used some retired ribbon for his scarf because I like the size and the color. Tie any ribbon around the base.

I got the idea from Inking Idaho. She used the colored pearls for the eyes and nose (I tried this but it was time consuming and messy), and sweater trim for the scarf.
